Hyundai Santro Expert Review

3 out of 5

The latest Santro continues to be a practical option for many looking for a daily commute option. The option of choosing factory-fitted CNG is an added incentive to choose the car. Many ardent fans of the original Santro, however, won't like the completely redone design language.
