Deliveries of Hyundai Exter SUV have commenced from today - Tuesday, July 11 - with company officials confirming that over 10,000 bookings have been received for the model that was launched a day earlier. Bookings for Hyundai Exter had been opened earlier this year and the pricing of the car starts at 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom, introductory).

Exter is now the smallest and most-affordable SUV from Hyundai in the country. The company also offers SUVs like Venue, Creta and Tucson here. But the Exter has the potential to be a real volume driver as not only is the pricing quite attractive but the vehicle is quite loaded with features and is targeting a younger car-buying audience.

The Hyundai Exter is taking a direct aim at Tata Punch but will also rival the likes of Maruti Suzuki Fronx and Ignis. The Koreans have long underlined their SUV credentials but were thus far missing a strong proposition in the under 10 lakh price bracket.
