    Hyundai India is all set to launch the Exter SUV in India on July 10, 2023. Hyundai has, so far, partially shown the Exter's design, and has also revealed its powertrain line-up and some of its features. The Exter is Hyundai’s smallest SUV for India and will sit below the Venue

    1. Hyundai Exter gets 3 powertrains, 5 trims
    2. Will get single-pane sunroof on higher variants
    3. 6 airbags standard on all variants

    Hyundai Exter deliveries to commence by late July

    Bookings for the Exter micro SUV are in full swing and dealers tell us that the first units of the Exter will likely reach customers by the third or fourth week of July. A large chunk of buyers has opted for the higher variants of the Exter with the automatic gearbox option. Dealers, however, tell us that bookings and the variant split are likely to change once prices are announced as buyers tend to adjust their preferences and change their selected variant to one that fits their budget.

    Hyundai Exter gets 1.2-litre engine with petrol, CNG

    The Exter will get a 1.2-litre petrol engine along with a CNG option. Five-speed manual or an AMT automatic can be selected on the petrol, while the CNG comes with a manual gearbox only. The Exter shares its platform with Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and the Aura.

    The Exter will be offered in five trim levels – EX, S, SX, SX(O) and top-spec SX(O) Connect. It also gets standard six airbags across all trims along with more unique features like dual cameras and a single-pane sunroof in higher variants.

    Hyundai Exter gets upright SUV design

    Hyundai has partially shown the Exter through teasers, but previous spy shots have already revealed the final design. It gets boxy proportions with a split headlamp set-up, an upright nose and a tailgate with slightly raked rear glass area.

    In profile, Hyundai’s smallest SUV gets round and slightly flared wheel arches with thick cladding all along. There are stylish, dual-tone alloy wheels, roof rails, a textured finish for the C-pillar and dual-tone paint options with a floating roof effect. Hyundai is yet to release details about the Exter’s interior.

    Hyundai Exter rivals in India

    Key rivals to the Exter include the Tata Punch and the Citroen C3. While we await the Exter's prices, what is certain is that the micro SUV will surely be up on its rivals in terms of features and equipment on offer.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
