In the official images released by Hyundai, the Exter displays H-shaped LED inserts for the tail lamps, resembling the design of the daytime running LEDs at the front. Another notable feature of the Exter’s rear profile is a thick black textured garnish running between the tail lamps and above the license plate housing, which also holds the Hyundai logo in the center.

The muscular appeal of the Hyundai Exter’s rear view is further enhanced by a bulky-looking faux silver skid plate situated within black body cladding on the lower half of the rear bumper. Reflectors are placed on the upper corners of the faux silver skid plate. Additionally, the image of the rear profile reveals an LED brake light positioned between the roof spoiler, textured finish on the C-pillar, shark fin antenna, and roof rails.

In addition to the mentioned highlights and features, the new Hyundai Exter will also include a sunroof, wireless charger, dashcam with dual cameras and a 2.31-inch screen, automatic climate control, and a modern touchscreen infotainment system.

It is the same engine used in other Hyundai models such as the Grand i10 Nios, Aura, and lower-spec variants of the Venue.

The new Hyundai Exter is set to officially go on sale on July 10th and will directly compete against rivals like the Tata Punch and Citroen C3.
