New Delhi: Once popular city car Santro is all set to come back in the Hyundai showrooms soon.
The Times of India report quoting vendor sources said the new Santro is currently under development in South Korea and will come to India in around two years.
Hyundai Motor India may be planning to bring Santro back on Indian roads as it still remains a powerful brand even after two years of its phasing out.
The Santro had made its entry in the Indian market in September 1998. The high-roof design and MPFI engine of the car became a game-changer in the passenger car segment in India, as well as put Hyundai in competitive edge with Maruti Suzuki.
The car sold 13.6 lakh units in the domestic market and exported 5.35 lakh units. Even when it was phased out end-2014, the Santro was selling around 2400-2500 units a month and clocked 14595 units in the first six months of 2014-15, added the report.
