General Observation & Verdict:

In the marketplace, the new Hyundai Santro will clash with the Tata Tiago, Renault Kwid 1.0, Datsun Redi-Go 1.0, Maruti Suzuki Celerio and Maruti Suzuki Wagon to name few. We think the pricing is the key which Hyundai has kept quite competitive.

We rate this hatch 4.3 out of 5.
