The Indian subsidiary of the South Korean automotive giant Hyundai, Hyundai Motor India, will launch its newest micro-SUV, Exter, today. However, just before its official launch, a detailed video walkaround of the Exter has been shared on YouTube. The video showcases the new micro-SUV Exter both from the outside and inside a Hyundai dealership, allowing viewers to note all the important features that will be offered with the new car. The Exter will become Hyundai’s most affordable SUV, positioned below the Hyundai Venue in the lineup.
The video of the Hyundai Exter walkaround before the official launch has been shared on YouTube by Ravinder Autohub on their channel. The video begins with the presenter showing the Exter from the outside. Firstly, the presenter highlights the main feature of the Exter’s front end, its H-shaped LED DRLs, and then moves on to the car’s projector headlamp. The presenter mentions that the headlamp features a chrome treatment, but the chrome is placed inside the headlamp housing.
Following this, the presenter showcases the parametric jewel-type grille, finished in gloss black. The presenter adds that the car does not come with fog lamps due to the new split headlamp design. Moving forward, the presenter highlights the silver skid plate on the front bumper of the Exter, which features a fake nut design to create a rugged appearance. Next, the presenter shows the Exter from the side, mentioning that this is the top-spec SX(O) Dual Tone variant in the new Exter-specific Khaki color with a black dual-tone roof. The presenter also showcases the 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and the thick black cladding, emphasizing that these claddings enhance the Exter’s rugged SUV appearance.
Continuing, the presenter displays the Exter’s large roof rails on the side and the C-pillar, noting that it features a geometric pattern to enhance its appeal. After showcasing the side, the presenter moves to the rear of the SUV, revealing the same H-shaped rear LED taillights and mentioning that the reverse light and turn indicators still use halogen bulbs. The presenter also highlights the geometric pattern on the tailgate, which matches the pattern on the C-pillar.
Shifting focus to the interior of the car, the presenter states that the main dashboard of the Exter closely resembles that of the Grand i10 Nios, featuring the same digital instrument cluster found in the Venue sub-compact SUV. The presenter mentions that the dashboard is made of hard-touch plastics throughout. Furthermore, the presenter comments on the front seats, stating that they are very comfortable, and highlights the rear seats, which are equally comfortable and provide ample legroom and knee room. The presenter also showcases the electric sunroof and rear AC vents.
The Exter is expected to be equipped with a 1.2-liter naturally-aspirated petrol engine, delivering a power output of 83 PS and a torque of 114 Nm. It will come with a standard 5-speed manual gearbox, and there may also be an option for a 5-speed AMT. For the higher variants, there could be an additional choice of a 1.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine, which is already available in the Venue model.
