Hyundai Discontinues Santro Petrol, Grand i10 Nios And Aura Diesel Unit

Hyundai has axed the petrol versions of their entry-level hatchback, Santro and not only that but they've also stopped the production of the Grand i10 Nios and Aura diesel motor. Furthermore, the dealers have been asked to take the bookings for specific models only if they have the stock available.

Several carmakers follow the technique of discontinuing variants and revising the portfolio when they see a lack of demand for the particular trims. Compared to the petrol motor of the Grand i10 Nios and Aura, the diesel was not doing that good.
