I recently had got the Exter SX(0) AMT delivered to me. On inclined roads, I tested the Hill Hold Assist feature and it worked perfectly fine. I had applied the brake on the inclined road. On releasing the brake, the car remained still for 5 secs and after that it started creeping forwards without me having to press the accelerator. Never once did the car roll back.

It maybe an issue with your car which needs to be reported or you maybe doing it the wrong way. You need to apply brake on the inclined roads for Hill Hold Assist feature to kick in.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

I have booked Exter SX AMT for my 55+ aged parents for city driving and the feedback about the soft suspension is scaring me a little.

Is it still a good idea to go ahead with Exter or do I look for alternates like i10 NIOS?

Do a test drive of Exter before you rule it out.
The suspension is on the softer side I agree but that's how it's supposed to be for driving on city roads. It's comfortable to drive on bad city roads laden with potholes and unexpected speed breakers. Exter is a good city beater.

I think you should go for a test drive. The suspension is very good for the city and is not like a Toyota Qualis that bounces around. The softness is mostly felt while taking turns and even that is pretty controlled. The straight line stability and comfort is great. It would be a great car for your parents.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

Anyone looking at SX variant might as well spend 25k more and go for Dual Tone. You also get Diamond cut alloy wheels which itself is worth the 25k.

I would suggest you to get it checked at A.S.S., it shouldn't roll back.
That's interesting, I haven't tested the HillHold in such difficult situations, but at very mild upwards inclines, with just me in the driver seat, my Exter AMT does roll back 1-2 inches before it holds it's place and creeps forward.

Boy am I glad to be of help here Excuse me but this is the first time I'm posting a tip on TeamBHP.
Just hold the + paddle for a couple of seconds and it switches things back to the 'D' mode.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

Surprisingly, no deliveries or not even a discussion of Cosmic Blue Exter. Thought it's an interesting colour choice for a city commuter. Even the dealer said they haven't received one at the showroom yet!

It is the same behaviour in my case aswell which I feel is expected in AMT. However will get it checked during the first service which is due this week

Honestly speaking it is not an attractive colour. The most popular one seems to be the Khaki colour, which, again, I do not find attractive at all.

Update: I happened to notice that in a semi steep slope, with 2 people on board, the Hill hold worked today without rolling back by even an inch. My assumption so far is that the car needs a certain degree of incline to activate/engage the Hill hold brakes and creep.

That is an interesting observation and it sounds logical, hill hold may be getting triggered only if there is an incline. Let me also check this, Thanks

I would go for atlas white or starry night if it was me.

Although TBH that busy rear design is something I'm finding hard to be able to make peace with. No offense to the owners, it's entirely my personal taste. I loved this car otherwise when I drove it.

We booked a Starry night Exter but got a call from the dealer that Cosmic Blue is readily available. Didn't want to wait for 5 months just for a darker shade of blue, so taking handover of a Cosmic Blue Exter in three days from now.

Having seen it in person, the sporty blue kinda works with the loud design of Exter and makes it look quite peppy city roads. Will post pictures next week once I take the delivery

I got the Cosmic Blue. I have an issue which I need to discuss. The AC vent keeps going to open mode instead of recirculation only. Does anyone know a fix for this? My brother has an Aura and this does not happen in his car.

Have you checked if your sun roof is properly closed?
I too faced a similar issue with my Kia Sonet. The recirculation mode kept turning off and later realised that the sunroof was slightly tilted. Once it was properly closed, everything worked fine.
