Hyundai Casper Revealed Officially
Hyundai Casper was unveiled to the public in Seoul, South Korea. In South Korea, bookings for the Casper are expected to begin in the next several weeks. Our Indian market has seen a surge in demand for entry-level SUVs over the past few years. As micro-SUVs gain in popularity, the Hyundai Casper is expected to arrive in India in early 2022. The Casper is projected to be a strong challenger to the future Tata Punch and Maruti Suzuki Ignis once it is launched in India.
On the worldwide market, the Hyundai Casper will be available with two different petrol engine options. One-liter naturally-aspirated petrol engine produces 74bhp, while a one-liter turbocharged petrol engine produces 99bhp. There is a four-speed manual transmission available for both of the engines.
Casper, according to Hyundai, is the result of the “Casper” technique in skating, where the board flips over before landing. By creating a new car class and commercializing an entry-level SUV, GM claims that their impending model will redefine the game and stereotypes of the present automotive market.
On first impression, the Hyundai Casper looks a lot like the Venue, with a similar silhouette but a significantly smaller size. With its hidden rear door handles, the Casper tries to imitate the 3-door automobile design, a trait that can also be found on the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Tata Punch, and Tata Altroz.
The Casper has spherical halogen headlights below the DRLs in the front, a trend that is progressively gaining on in India. A tail lamp is nicely fitted into the boot at the back, followed by two round units on the bumper.
Because the Casper is slimmer and shorter than the Santro, it will most likely be Hyundai’s smallest model. It is anticipated to be taller than its hatchback sister due to its micro-SUV body shape.
