Hyundai plans to target the youngsters and youths with the new car. It will get a slew of youthful and modern design elements that will set it apart from the other cars in the segment. Hyundai is testing the all-new AX1 under heavy camouflage so the design elements are not still out yet. However, render that ed images based on the spy pictures show that the all-new Casper will get split headlamps and quirky looking tail lamps too. The tail lamps will be circular with some interior design on them.
The powertrain options are likely to include the same 1.2-litre, four-cylinder naturally-aspirated engine that also powers the Grand i10 NIOS. However, Hyundai may retune the engine for the Casper. There is also the choice of the 1.1-litre, three-cylinder engine that is available with the Santro. The higher-powered variants may get the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine.
