I really love this car Though it's really like a toy, but this certainly is a very practical car for city usage. Brilliant. No matter what I really appreciate Hyundai for making something this much cute looking. If I was in need of a small city car I would have certainly purchase it.

What an ugly looking car!!

Looks like the uglier version of Honda e (No surprises when Hyundai logo itself is "inspired by" Honda's).
It feels as though they've taken all the bad pieces from Honda e and Suzuki ignis and assembled it together and added some other bling stuff from Aliexpress!

Looks aside, it will be a practical city car and with toads like in our country, will be a very good car.

That said if i see other quirky looking cars like Ritz and Ignis in our country...they were sales duds. Only time will tell.

Oh man ! This and the Punch do look very promising indeed, and just one thing concerns me, I seriously hope that the Casper is as safe as the Punch, even though that seems vague at the moment !

I now understand. Those speakers at the front are for us to here the Turbo whistle.

PS: Do they already know Gadkariís thoughts of having musical instrument sounds instead of the regular keeee and beeeeeb.

IGNIS + Venue + Minicopper = Casper.
Somehow, I liked the design though.

According to Powerdrift on Instagram, the Casper is NOT coming to India.

According to the post:

Quote:
Hyundai India was offered the Casper as an entry-level SUV offering but due to its ultra-compact size, the automaker believes India is not the correct market for it. For reference, the Casper, in terms of overall length, is shorter than Hyundaiís smallest offering in India, the Santro.

I just tried some editing with procreate on iPad. Unfortunately, I don't have Photoshop on my system so had to use with Procreate and with my limited knowledge I got something like this. Still, I don't like mine also but sharing nevertheless.

p.s the editing is not good. Now I am finding the original looks better than my edit :P

Indian market is very weird. People here need cars for daily use, but need a 5 seater for the purpose. Look at traffic in major metro cities. Itís filled with cars with maximum of 2 occupants! Iíve always wondered why people in cities wonít consider a smaller two seater car instead like the Smart ForTwo. Now that thereís a paradigm shift towards automatic over manual in cities, I do hope people do consider these small cars over large ones. They sure will be fuel efficient, take up less space and easier to navigate. And if one does need a larger car, rentals are available. I believe the Japanese kei car market was introduced to tackle such issues. If Indian manufacturers are willing to pull in, a decent 600cc two seater, automatic comfortable car can be designed and sold in the competitive price range of a mid range motorcycle. Driving within Delhi, Bombay or Chennai city limits, Iíve barely crossed the 50 kmph mark during rush hours. Be it the ring road, Western Express Highway or Mount road traffic, everything moves at a very slow pace and most of the time is spent below the 1500 rpm mark! Plus speed cams and cops wonít allow any speeding as well. Now that stringent speed limits are being implemented across European countries, we too arenít that far away. Iím not here to push for environmental consciousness, but for convenience of commuting. I would like to hear opinions from other members as well on this topic.

Casper specs for the Korean market:

- 1.0-liter 3-cylinder gasoline engine and a 4-speed automatic transmission.

- The maximum output of 76 horsepower / 6200 rpm, the maximum torque of 9.7 kgm / 3750 rpm, and domestic combined fuel economy 13.8 km / ℓ (urban city 13.0, high speed 14.8)

- 1.0-liter 3-cylinder gasoline turbo engine and a 4-speed automatic transmission.

- The T-GDI has a maximum output is 100 horsepower / 4500 ~ 6000 rpm, the maximum torque is 17.5 kgm / 1500 ~ 4000 rpm, and the combined fuel efficiency is 12.3 km/ℓ (city 11.0, high speed 14.2).

- The unladen weight of the Casper is 985 kg for the basic model and 1030 kg for the turbo.

- Casper will be equipped with 17-inch wheels and tires for the first time in a domestic compact car. The maximum tire size provided as an option is 205/45R17


Quote:
Casper's 1.0 gasoline engine applied an exhaust-integrated head to increase warm-up speed and improved high-speed fuel efficiency, and reduced pumping loss and improved knocking characteristics by applying COOLED EGR. Here, the OVC integrated CVVT was applied to improve responsiveness, and the block temperature was increased with separate cooling and flow stop valves.
Quote:
The Casper T-GDI engine is 32% more powerful and 80% more powerful than the MPI engine.

Quote:
estimated price around 14 million won

PowerDrift must have gotten the tip from the i20 N-Line media drives which are currently ongoing. Hyundai management is present, which makes it easy to ask questions & get instant responses.

While the loss is all ours, I think it makes sense.

This car will be 15mm shorter and 50mm less wider than Santro though the wheelbase remains the same. Looks like it is strictly going to be a 4 seater.

Compared to Ignis, which is the car it will get compared to simply cause of visual cues, it is 105mm shorter and 65mm less wider and 35mm smaller in footprint.

Will be tough to price it higher than Santro though Hyundai would load this car with great features. If I remember the pictures from Korea, it even has a sunroof!
