Currently, Hyundai’s model range starts with the Eon, which has a starting price of Rs 3.35 lakh. The increase in price will also be applicable on the new Santro. It is currently being sold at introductory price ranging between Rs 3.9 lakh and Rs 5.67 lakh.

There are, however, various year-end discounts currently being offered by Hyundai across its models.
