SantroSouth Korean auto major Hyundai Tuesday said it will bring back its once popular hatchback, Santro, in a new avatar in India later this month.

The company, which operates in the country through its wholly-owned subsidiary Hyundai Motor India (HMIL), had discontinued the previous Santro model in December 2014. Hyundai has invested over $100 million on the all-new Santro, which was developed under the code name AH2, over the last three years.

The new car will be powered by a 4-cylinder 1.1 litre petrol engine. It will also be available with automated manual transmission (AMT) and factory-fitted CNG fuel options. HMIL Managing Director and CEO Y K Koo said the company decided to name the "new family car" as Santro following an overwhelming response from customers in an online poll.

The company will open online pre-bookings for the new Santro from October 10-22 with Rs 11,100 as booking amount for the first 50,000 customers. The company will announce prices at a later date. "We will have the global premiere of the all-new Santro on October 23 in New Delhi," Koo said.
