Re: Hyundai Exter Review

Hi guys. I bought Exter SX(O) Connect + AMT ie the topmost AMT model. This was my first new Car purchase, so didn't know anything. I didn't like the service of the Dealer but that's another matter. Now after 2 months, I checked my dashcam which doesn't have any memory card. I checked a few YouTube videos which says that it comes with a booklet for dashcam and a memory card. Can anybody confirm that so that I can take up with the dealer. On top of that now that I checked my bills, insurance and all, they have also charged me around 13k more.

Also, would like to know what all things they should have provided me with a new car? I don't think they've given me any complementary items.

And any suggestions for what should I add in the Car for long term use? Like I sweat a lot in hand and I was thinking whether a cover for steering is worth a buy?

How did they charge you ₹13k more? Was it in insurance or did they charge more for accessories?

I am not sure about the memory card as I have the SX variants. Still, I heard in some YouTube videos that memory card is not included.

Also, your car should have floor mats and mudguards complimentary / included in ex-showroom.


About the steering cover - there is already a stitched leather steering cover in SX(O) and above variants.

Hope this helps.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

Here are my observations related to Hill Hold Assist.

After reading some comments, I decided to test my Exter's Hill Hold and it worked some times and did not the other times. So I experimented on different slopes and in different conditions.

1 - Hill hold doesn't work when you're in Reverse Mode. You have to be in D mode.
2 - When in D mode and going uphill, if you press the brake momentarily where the car doesn't stop completely and let go, it DOES ROLL BACK.
3 - Next, I went to same slope and pressed the brake completely where the car completely comes to an halt and let go of the breaks, the car DOES NOT ROLL BACK. Hill Hold works fine here.
4 - Not sure if angle of the slope matters here but for above 2 conditions, hill hold is triggering properly.

Those who are feeling its not working for them, pls try the above 2 scenarios once.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

I checked, Angle of slope matters, for smaller inclinations hill hold does not hold true.

Re: Hyundai Exter Review

Took a test drive of the Exter AMT SX(O) connect variant within city. Few observations:

1) AMT gearbox was smooth – did not feel any major jerks. Unfortunately could not test the gear shift quality using paddle shifters.

2) Rear seat space was decent. I could see the bonnet from my driving position.

3) Quality of interiors was decent although did not feel as premium as i20. I think the interiors are a direct copy of Grand i10.

4) Infotainment system was good but it has wired Android Auto / Apple car play. There was an in-built navigation application but I do not think we will be using that due to our preference for google maps.

5) The fuel efficiency of the test drive vehicle was 6.1kmpl. We were told to expect around 10kmpl within the city.

6) Overall, I did not find any major negatives in the car. Although from a price perspective, I think the SX version makes more sense for us. The Starry night color looks smashing on the Exter

Below is the price breakup shared with us for the SX variant:

Ex-showroom price: 8,67,990
Insurance: 52,405
Registration charges: 98,438
Fast Tag: 600
Ext warranty (4th year): 9,471
RSA (4th year): 1,360
Accessories: 19,999
Shield of Trust (2 years): 5,299
Total on road price: 10,57,063

I know this is a new car so we should not be expecting any discounts. Is there scope to negotiate on the insurance cost?

Here's what you should definitely negotiate on
  • Insurance: 52,405 -> this should go down by half. Use the Acko website (or any other web portal) to get a quote, ask them to match it.
  • Accessories: 19,999 -> in my general experience, showroom accessories are marked up and you can get it half price if you get it done outside, so negotiate accordingly.

Yes, it got to do with the slope angle. I too tried all the scenarios, it works perfectly if the slope is more, but rolls back on small inclinations

This question has been asked a few times on this thread but hasn't ben answered, bubbling it up again to see if anyone can help, please?

Exter already has a pretty soft suspension and the cabin goes down when two adults are sitting, thus decreasing the ground clearance. Wouldn't bigger tires make this even worse?

I am searching for tyres with better handling and grip and less road noise than the factory tyres (JK Tyre Royale) especially with the condition of roads in Mumbai which all have been dug up due to metro work. I am not necessarily looking for an upsize.

Anyone in the forum can please share real world scenario with 4 adults and some luggage loaded whether the suspension is really that bad?

The suspension issue on social media is largely exaggerated. With 2 adults and luggages in the trunk, I faced no issues while traveling through spread breakers, patchy and uphill roads. The suspension is on the softer side, I agree but that's what makes Exter a good city beater.

That's good to know, since my use case is of 2 adults in front (incl me as driver) and 1 adult and 1 child in backseat and luggage, hoping it sustains for small weekend and 3 days vacations.
