It has emerged that the bookings for the 2019 Hyundai Santro have crossed the 30,000-unit milestone. The company started registering orders for the all-new Santro on 10 October 2018. Since then, it has received over 1.29 lakh enquiries for the new model.

Last month, Puneet Anand, Sr. General Manager (Marketing), Hyundai Motor India, had told IAB that the exports of the new model will commence around the advent of the next fiscal. The 2019 Hyundai Santro is being manufactured at the company's Sriperumbudur-based facility off Chennai. South Africa will be its first international market, where the new car will be sold as the all-new Hyundai Atos. Countries in Latin America, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia should start receiving Made-in-India units of the new small car in due course of time.
The Hyundai Santro is powered by a 1.1-litre four-cylinder engine that is available in two fuel options - Petrol and CNG.

While both the versions feature a 5-speed manual transmission, the petrol version is also available with an optional 5-speed AMT.
