Overall Comments

solid exteriors, the design is not very modern but very sober. the car is more on the practical side.

interiors are comfortable, good support for the thighs and back, easily seats 5 persons, has nice space to put in things, our model has a tray under the driver's seat and a parcel rack as standard equipment. the quality of material used by hyundai s also very good no problems in the last 5+ years with the plastics.

very good city ride quality, I personally feel that the car should have been given a bit more ground clearance, the ride gets bumpy on high speeds on highways if the roads are not smooth, otherwise in total the car is very comfortable to drive due to its very good driving position and the ergonomics are quite good for a car of this segment of this age. Hyundai scores very highly in the braking department even when compared to higher segment cars like the swift. I personally feel safe driving a santro than a swift. the handling is also good in city conditions.

overall a good package, when I brought this car 6 years back I compared it with other cars in this segment and this was the best package as it was offering more equipment as standard and the quality of materials used was also very good. the spares are costly but there is no need to have the parts changed frequently like in case of maruti as the quality of the products is far better than others.
