Hyundai Exter is the next SUV from the Korean brand in the country and will soon join the likes of Venue, Creta and Tucson in the product portfolio. Hyundai announced on Monday that bookings for the Exter SUV have now been opened for a token amount of ₹11,000.
Exter is Hyundai's entry-level SUV that is essentially based on the Casper model sold in South Korea. Although the smallest SUV from the Korean brand in India, the Exter holds some very big potential as the company looks to build on the growing demand for models based on the SUV body type. Hyundai is specifically targeting a younger car-buying audience with the Exter and has been projecting it as a lifestyle mobility option.
Hyundai is betting big on the Exter and company officials are confident of the model finding its intended mark in the market. “With this new SUV, we are venturing into a new segment that further enhances HMI’s position as a full range SUV manufacturer," said Tarun Garg, COO, Hyundai Motor India Limited. “Considering the aspirations and lifestyle of Gen Z customers, Hyundai Exter will provide unique and exciting experiences for new age customers."
