According to the automaker, the Hyundai Exter promises to be an SUV solution for Gen Z. It symbolises “the outdoors, travel and leisure." The micro SUV will likely arrive in a few weeks and fill in the void left by the Santro in Hyundai's small car lineup in India. Prices though should start around the 5 lakh mark.

The Exter is expected to be a petrol-only offering, given the low demand for small diesel cars at the moment. While a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol would fit the bill from the Grand i10 Nios, it needs to be seen if Hyundai will offer the 1.0-litre turbo petrol as well on the Exter. Transmission choices should include a manual and automatic, while an iMT would be an interesting addition as well. Expect the SUV to be feature-loaded as all Hyundai cars are with connected tech, a large infotainment screen, LED lighting, and more.

More details on the upcoming Hyundai Exter will be revealed in the days to come. The launch will take place in a few weeks from now.
