Voices from the Ground: Real User Reviews

  • Sunil Kumar opines, “I’ve booked this car for purchase. It’s a commendable car in this segment. The aesthetics, features, and pricing are impressive. However, I find the tyre size a tad small for an SUV. Integrating a rear-view camera in the ‘S’ model would make it an unbeatable offering.”
  • Chiranth P shares, “It’s a pocket-friendly car packed with features, including an electronic sunroof and a sophisticated infotainment system. The spacious interiors ensure even tall individuals can travel comfortably.”
  • Kalpesh Patil exclaims, “It’s the best in its range! I’ve experienced mileages of 18 and even 20. Features like ‘Alexa, open the sunroof’ are mind-blowing. Plus, the off-roading experience is unparalleled. Kudos to Hyundai!”

while the Hyundai Exter might be facing stiff competition from the likes of Tata Punch, its combination of features, safety, and variant choices make it a compelling contender in the compact SUV market in India. Whether it eventually emerges as the segment leader remains to be seen.
