New Hyundai hatchback test mule images have surfaced, thereby indicating its possible launch sometime soon. For a while now, it was being speculated that the Santro might be relaunched in the country and reports indicate that this could be the 2018 Santro in-works. The new model might be introduced at the 2018 Auto Expo event.

Although mechanical details are not known for now, the upcoming hatchback might share the 1.0-litre Kappa engine with the Eon. Initially it might be limited to a five speed manual transmission option while the AMT could be introduced on a later date. Anticipated to be the new Santro, the test mule also features a tall boy stance, larger window panes and is likely to offer more space than its predecessor.

The upcoming vehicle is expected to be positioned between the Eon and the Grand i10 in India. The Santro being a volume generating yesteryear product for the company, its relaunch will mean further pushing its sales positively. Known to be a competitive player, Hyundai is likely to price the upcoming hatchback under Rs 4 lakhs. More details about the vehicle will be known in the days to come.
