Hyundai Exter – A youthful mini SUV launched at 5.99 lakh

Hyundai Exter has been launched in India at Rs 5.99 lakh as the most affordable Hyundai SUV. Hyundai already has two best-selling SUVs, Venue and Creta, on its portfolio, and we expect a lot from Exter. We will discuss the engine, mileage, and features of the Hyundai Exter in detail. All variants’ prices are also mentioned if you plan to buy an SUV in this category.  

Hyundai Exter

Hyundai Exter is a unique-looking vehicle that is a good alternative to the Hyundai i10. Markedly, at almost the same price, you get an SUV look and feel. Today, everyone wants to buy an SUV or at least look alike. Surprisingly, you also get a sunroof variant in this vehicle. The look of Hyundai Exter is very modern, and the interiors are upmarket.

As compared to Hyundai i10, Hyundai Exter is a good alternative. i10 looks small and outdated. Mini SUVs or should I say compact SUVs are also high in demand. TATA Punch which is a good competitor of Hyundai Exter, is one of the highest selling mini SUV. Maruti Suzuki is also working on the concept of mini SUVs. These mini SUVs are easy to drive as well as park in congested spaces. What will be the safety ratings of Hyundai Exter we have to find out yet, as TATA Punch has a 5 star rating. It will definitely affect the sales of Exter.
