Apart from Hyundai, other companies are included in the list, which are now focusing on micro SUVs after sub compact SUVs. The most important thing about these vehicles will be their design and price.
Hyundai Casper will be very small and will get many features
The upcoming Hyundai micro SUV that was known by its internal codename, AX 1, will be called the Hyundai Casper when it enters production in the coming months. This new SUV will first go on sale in Korea, followed by other emerging markets like India. Hyundai has registered the name Casper in Korea and according to multiple reports, the AX1 will be the marketing name of the micro-SUV in the Korean market.
At present, it has not been told whether the micro-SUV will be called Casper in Korea or not. But Hyundai is known to give different names to its cars according to the market; For example, in some markets the Creta is sold as ix25, while in some countries the Verna is also referred to as Solaris or Accent.
Similarly, Casper (AX1) may have different marketing names depending on the region. According to sources, it will be revealed globally by September, then only after that it will be launched in other markets and India. The Casper will be Hyundai’s smallest SUV, meaning it will be smaller than the sub-four-meter Venue compact SUV. The vehicle will be based on Hyundai’s K1 compact car platform which also underpins the Grand i10Nios and Santro in our market.
what will be special in the car
The Hyundai Casper will be 3,595mm long, 1,595mm wide and 1,575mm high. This means that while Hyundai’s smallest SUV will be slightly shorter and narrower, its smallest offering will be taller than the Santro hatchback, which is 3,610mm long, 1,645mm wide and 1,560mm high.
The vehicle is being made targeting the youth. The Casper will be powered by a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder aspirated engine that powers the Grand i10 Nios (where it makes 83hp and 114Nm). The Korean carmaker may also offer lower variants of the micro-SUV with the Santro’s 1.1-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine to keep its costs down.
The most direct rival of Hyundai Casper will be the Tata HBX micro-SUV. Additionally, it will also face competition from some other high-riding hatchbacks like the Maruti Suzuki Ignis and Mahindra KUV100.
