Exter Advantanges
  • Impressive Introductory Prices

    The introductory price for the base Exter EX is really impressive and the prices of the higher variants are sensible too. The base model of the Exter offers 6 airbags as standard, which is not only a segment-first but also a first in any car below the Rs. 10 lakh price bracket.

  • 6 Airbags As Standard, Other Safety Features Optional

    While the base variant of the Exter comes with 6 airbags as standard, its EX (O) and S(O) variants also offer other safety features, like electronic stability control (ESC) and hill start assist, for a marginal increment in price.

  • Good Choice Of Powertrains

    The Exter offers the choice of a 1.2L normal petrol engine that can be equipped with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automated manual transmission. Furthermore, the Exter also offers the option of a factory-fitted CNG powertrain, which comes with a 5-speed manual transmission as standard.

  • Good Number Of Features, Including Many Segment-Firsts

    The Hyundai Exter comes loaded with a long list of features, including automatic climate control, sunroof, digital instrument cluster, rear AC vents, cruise control and 3-point seatbelts for all passengers. It also offers a few segment-first features like paddle shifters, dual-camera dashcam and multi-language support.

  • Good Ground Clearance And Boot Space

    The Exter offers a ground clearance of 185mm, which is good by segment standards. Furthermore, it also offers 391L of boot space, second only to the Renault Kiger’s 405L boot space.

  • Good Fuel Efficiency With Both Powertrains

    The Exter offers a claimed fuel efficiency of 19.4kmpl and 19.2kmpl with the petrol manual and petrol AMT, respectively. The CNG powertrain offers a claimed fuel efficiency of 27.1kmpkg. The fuel efficiency of all the Exter’s powertrains is good by segment standards.

  • Missing Features

    While the Exter comes packed with a lot of features, it misses a few key ones like wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, split-folding rear seats, front adjustable headrests, and front and rear armrests.

  • Compromised Boot Space With CNG

    Since the Exter CNG packs a 60L water-equivalent cylinder in its boot, its luggage carrying capacity is compromised over the petrol powertrain option. The upcoming Tata Punch CNG will offer a twin-cylinder layout, enabling you to store larger pieces of luggage in the boot.

  • Price Overlap With Hyundai Venue

    Since a few variants of the Exter overlap the Hyundai Venue in terms of ex-showrrom price, a few buyers may tilt towards the larger Hyundai Venue, which also makes use of the same 1.2L normal petrol engine.
