Hyundai not to stop Santro after EON launch

     We had in our earlier post showed you the real pictures of Hyundai’s new small car EON. The EON will be launched in mid-october and will be priced around Rs. 2.5 lakh, mainly to compete against the market leader Maruti Alto.


     Having said this, there was a speculation that Hyundai will replace the Santro after the EON launch. Santro is marginally priced higher compared to Maruti Alto and since EON pricing would be less than the Alto, there was no sense in keeping the old Santro. But the company thinks otherwise. It plans to sell EON alongside the Santro. Will there be any takers for Santro? We feel there are buyers who even today like the 13 year old Santro just because of its practicality and space. Santro has been a successful small family car in India, which the Hyundai do not want to lose.


     EON, Santro and i10 with price differences of Rs. 50,000, it sounds good on the paper, but do people buy Santro when EON will be launched. It’s a different question to answer. Is Hyundai planning a different think for the Santro? As of now there is no speculation. Watch this space for more updates.
