Hyundai Exter | Packs More Punch? | First Drive Review

The Compact SUV segment is one that's seen a lot of growth, and the Exter aims to fight to become the new king of the hill.


Spacious interiors, responsive powertrain


Lack of steering speed


The inside is pretty familiar to anyone that’s been inside a Hyundai before. With cues from the i10 and the Venue, the Exter has a decent cabin that doesn’t exactly blow you away but doesn’t disappoint. The windows are large, allowing a lot of light into this cabin and making it feel much roomier. There is sufficient headroom and space on offer for passengers in the front and rear. The seats are well cushioned, and I like the recline on the rear seats. The cabin feels prepared for a road trip and can easily handle daily duties in the city with your family. The boot capacity might not be sufficient for a long road trip, but it should be able to handle weeks’ worth of packing with all seats filled. Hyundai has also added a bit of ambient lighting in the footwell and included colour-coded trim bits around the AC vents and stitching on the seats, adding a bit more charm to the interior.
