Korean automobile manufacturer Hyundai officially revealed the upcoming Exter SUV for India. Hyundai showed the exterior design of the Exter for the first time and has also confirmed its trim details and powertrain options in India.

Bookings are open for a token amount of Rs 11,000.

Hyundai Exter is equipped with 3 powertrain options - 1.2 litre Kappa Petrol engine (E20 Fuel Ready) which is available with 5-speed manual transmission (5MT) and Smart Auto AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) and 1.2 litre Bi-fuel Kappa petrol with CNG engine equipped with 5-speed Manual transmission.

As claimed by Hyundai, all powertrains are tuned to deliver consistent performance in diverse conditions and will ensure a delightful driving experience.

Exter will come in 5 trim options – EX, S, SX, SX(O) and SX(O) Connect. Hyundai has introduced a Unique color ‘Ranger Khaki’ which as per the company, “Reflects one’s exploration desires while celebrating the thrill of setting out in the world.”

Like many other Hyundai models in India, the Exter follows Hyundai's Parametric design language with boxy proportions and an upright stance. It has a split headlamp set-up with H-patterned LED Daytime Running Lamps. The front fascia also gets a wide, contrasting black grille and a prominent chin with a faux silver skid plate.

Hyundai is expected to announce pricing for the Exter sometime in late July or early August this year. The SUV will be positioned below the Venue and will be the brand's most affordable SUV in India. It will be aimed squarely at the popular Tata Punch and the Citroen C3 in the Indian market.
