We bought this car almost 4 years ago. This car is really good and easy to drive in city as well as in highway. It was a petrol engine which was very good compared to others in the market. Then, we installed CNG(Gas) system 18 months ago. After that, we were having pleasant time while driving with running cost of Rs.1/km ($0.02/km approx.). It gave 18kmpl in petrol and 19km/kg of CNG.
Other reasons to buy this car is that they provide power windows on all windows whereas you won't get it on other cars in this range(at that time). Also, it was pretty spacious and has nice design. In santro, you will get rear spoilers, if you buy the high end model. Also, they give very cool accessories.
But, there are some problems that I have experienced with this car. Some of the experienced problems are:
- Rear seats are not so comfortable
- Experienced some problems when CNG was installed
But, I would definitely recommend this car as you can drive this car in heavy traffic also. This car is very zippy.. :)
