Hyundai will commence the series production of the Casper micro SUV from September 15 in South Korea. The India-bound SUV is likely to be revealed in South Korea first soon. The India launch is expected to happen in 2022, with the Casper sitting below the Venue subcompact SUV. 

The Casper micro SUV has been spied testing multiple times in South Korea. It follows a crossover-type silhouette, similar to the Maruti Suzuki Ignis. Going by the spy shots, it could get 17-inch alloy wheels, C-pillar mounted door handles, circular headlamps, a split headlamp setup, and body cladding.

The Casper’s feature list could be a mix of the Grand i10 Nios and i20. It is expected to come packed with a large touchscreen infotainment system, automatic AC, cruise control, LED lighting, connected car technology and a rear parking camera. 

Hyundai is expected to offer the Casper micro SUV with the same powertrains as the Grand i10 Nios: 1.2-litre petrol (83PS/114Nm), a 1-litre turbo-petrol (100PS/172Nm), and a 1.2-litre diesel (75PS/190Nm). While a 5-speed manual gearbox is offered as standard across all engines, the diesel and the naturally aspirated petrol units will also get an optional 5-speed AMT.

The Hyundai Casper micro SUV will rival the Maruti Suzuki IgnisTata HBX, and the Mahindra KUV100 NXT. Prices are expected to commence from around Rs 6 lakh (ex-showroom).
