Rumour: Hyundai Casper may not come to India

The Casper is seen as a worthy rival to the upcoming Tata Punch.

Hyundai's quirky-looking Casper micro-SUV was unveiled earlier this month. While it is seen as a worthy rival for the upcoming Tata Punch, a media report suggests that Hyundai may not launch it in India.

The report states that the micro-SUV is specifically developed for the Korean market. It is designed to comply with the Gyeongcha (light car) regulations, which require cars to be under 3.6-meters in length.

The sub-4 meter SUV segment in India is pretty popular. However, Hyundai believes the Casper's ultra-compact size will not be right for the Indian market.

In the international market, the Casper is available with two petrol engine options. These include an 85 BHP 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated engine and a more powerful 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit churning out 99 BHP. The Casper will come with both manual and automatic transmission options.
