Hyundai’s Tata Punch rival to be called Exter
The Hyundai Exter (codenamed: Ai3) is said to be based on the same platform as the Grand i10 NIOS and Aura.
Hyundai’s upcoming sub-compact SUV has been christened ‘Exter’. The new model will compete with the likes of the Tata Punch and is likely to be unveiled in the near future, with an official launch expected sometime during the festive season.
The Hyundai Exter (codenamed: Ai3) is said to be based on the same platform as the Grand i10 NIOS and Aura. It is the 8th model in Hyundai’s line-up with an SUV body style. It will be positioned below the Venue in Hyundai’s line-up.
Spy images suggest that the Exter will feature a tall boy design with a large greenhouse and an upright stance. It is likely to get roof rails, a sunroof and a shark fin antenna.
The Exter is expected to be offered with the same 1.2-litre petrol engine as the Venue, Grand i10 NIOS and Aura. However, it is unlikely to get a diesel engine option.
