Hyundai AH2 will be the successor of the iconic Santro and come as a replacement to the Eon in India.
Official bookings for the all-new Hyundai AH2 hatchback will be commenced from October 10, claims a report. While the carmaker will announce the official name of the vehicle on October 9, its launch is slated to happen on October 23, 2018. Hyundai’s new entry-level hatchback – AH2 – will be the successor of the iconic Santro and come as a replacement to the Eon in the Indian market.
Unlike its replacement – Eon which was based on the PA platform, the new Hyundai AH2 (new Hyundai Santro 2018) has been designed on the company’s more rigid HA architecture, borrowed from the Hyundai i10. Further enhancing its safety quotient, Hyundai might offer dual airbags, rear parking sensors and antilock braking system (ABS) as standard on the hatchback. Read: Hyundai Kona SUV – What To Expect
