Quirky fresh and a pretty youthful design. The dimensions are great for the city car premise. The word SUV has been dragged to an all time low in India now with cars like this and the Punch.

Looks fresh and youthful, and the olive green color is definitely eye-catching. Great options for those looking to get a car in that segment, both Punch and Casper look like good bets. Hyundai will probably load this with features and sell at a slight premium, but their strategy has worked well for them.

Holy Bananas, this is a very funky design and it reminds me of Ignis from the Rear and side profiles. I am sure that this will make waves as it has the word "Micro-SUV". I would really love to see them in some cool colors.

This car is going to rival the s-presso, if the top model is priced above 5lk ex-showroom, it's going to be dud like the Santro. Why would anyone want turbo petrol with 99bhp in this city runaround I have no idea. I can see the sunroof, I hope these are concept cars and not production-ready vehicles.

These micro SUV concepts seem to be inspired by the Kei car concepts. All those MPV based on the kei concept are being reimagined as SUVs.

After a long time, a quirky & good looking car from Hyundai. It really looks cute.

I just wish Tata takes note of this, and makes sure not to botch up the Punch launch. The Casper is still some time away to reach India. Tata shouldn't rush things, and should iron out the niggles. Otherwise it'll just be a Harrier launch story again.

Not only that, the bonnet and DRL side looks Nexon'ish for me
However, overall I like the design.

Real pics of the car, differentiation to Turbo Vs NA is predominantly from the front styling.

You forgot to mention "subwoofers" too. BTW, the overall size and design elements makes me feel like its a car on bling than bling on car.

With sunroof on offer, will this be the most affordable car with a sunroof? Hope they bring the car with same spec sheet to India.

Hyundai Casper interior pictures in white upholstery and dashboard will feature a floating touchscreen infotainment system.

Looks like a smaller version of Venue with funky bumper and headlight design. The rear design also feels cool. But the roundish headlight design may find mixed opinions. This car would appeal to the younger buyers due to its SUVish look.

We don't know (yet) if Hyundai uses these holes functionally for air intake. I would not be surprised if they use it. I would prefer something functional instead of just collecting dust and doing nothing.

Dodge challenger SRT versions have on the driver side inner circular headlamp, an air intake hole too. But that's a V8 engine and the air intake from headlamp hole is connected to the air filter box, which is right behind the driver side headlamp unit.

That's the part connecting the headlamp unit to the intake box.

Like Latheesh said, first impression was the similarity with Ignis. Very compact, and a true AT will make it attractive. Glad that the new i20 design isnt influencing this one.

What if it is the front facing horns in those slots ?
(though carthick1000 has clarified)

I just cannot digest the looks of the most recent Hyundai cars. When I think that the Creta is the most ugliest they ever made, they come up with Casper. Now I find Ignis is much better looking than this car. What are Hyundai’s designers and their management thinking?

This is the new age Pontiac Aztec.
