New Delhi: The Exter is a micro SUV from Hyundai that enhances the company’s SUV lineup. It has been launched with petrol as well as CNG configurations. Although the starting price of the Exter is introductory, it still poses a tough competition to the existing vehicles in this segment. Here is a first look at the Exter.
The Exter measures 3,815 mm in length, but it does not look like a hatchback. This is because it is a raised and rugged SUV. Despite being smaller, it looks different from the Venue due to its styling. Most of it is boxy. It also has 15-inch alloy wheels.
The interior design is similar to the Nios’s dashboard pattern, but the Exter stands out with its different color accents. It also has different dials along with a digital dial, which is similar to the i20. In terms of quality, it is better than its competitors.
The features and infotainment system are the main attractions of the Exter. The touchscreen works very well and the rear camera display is decent too. It also has features like a sunroof, dashcam, OTA updates, wireless charging with voice commands, which put it ahead of its competitors. Cruise control and climate control are also available.
The wheelbase is quite good, but the rear space is much better for two people. The headroom is also very good due to the legroom and boxy roofline. The boot space is also better than its competitors.
The Exter is powered by a 1.2-liter petrol four-cylinder engine that provides good power output. The inclusion of paddle shifters in its AMT variants is a big change and something new. The 185 mm ground clearance is sufficient for our roads.
