    Santro

    Pros :
    Looks kool, better than cultus
    Economical, very good mileage
    EFi
    AC is excellent
    Quickest car in its category
    Trims with power steering/windows are available

    Cons :
    Car has high center of gravity, therefore more likely to flip.
    Resale isn't so good as cultus.
    Spares are harder to find then cultus.
    Its a discontinued car.


    Cultus

    Pros :
    Parts are easily available
    Parts are cheaper than that of santro
    Available with variants including power steering/windows
    Resale is good, better then santro
    More aerodynamic shape then santro
    Running cost is a cheaper, i think it requires less care and maintenance.

    Cons:
    AC SUCKS!
    Quality wise its weaker then santro
    shape is blehhh and has been the same since quite a few years!

    Thats all i can come up for now.

    To help decide which car you want, you should tell us for how long you are planning to keep the car, whats your range and priorities.

    one biggest benefit of santro over all hatchbacks is that it provides you with dikki along with cng cylinders(as cylinder is under the back seats), so you can put your luggage in dikki. and thus full seating capacity can be availed.

    Santro is powerfull, but its drive is little hard than Cultus.
    If you want to use it within city, its perfect but on long its feels little tough mean not soft as Suzukies. it my experience.

    I recently purchased Santro 2005, Its good, powerfull, Excellent AC, Average consumption on CNG is around Rs. 2.50 per KM local and Rs/ 2.3 on highways.

    Requires less maintenance if you able to get in good condition.

    thats it.

    I'd go for a cultus despite the fact that most of what illdude has said is true..
    Why? Cause you can sit comfortably in the back, santro lacks in rear leg room big time

    I agree Cultus is a suzuki product inferior to hyundai, material quality is not so good, not as quicker as santro but still i would prefer cultus because of more leg room, better comfort, cheaper and easily availability of parts and more resale.

    santro is much better car than old carby cultus in terms of engine , a/c, etc. the gv version provides a lot of space in the boot area allowing placement of luggage and sub-woofers etc.
    however, one factor that forced me to buy a cultus recently over a santro was that it is not roomy and even the front seats feel cramed. the rear passengers have lesser legroom in comparison with cultus.

    cultus is batter option
    "yar dont need to take tension"
