Prices for the Casper model in South Korea range from 13 million 850 thousand to 18 million 700 thousand won (this is approximately $ 11 800 – 15 900 at the current exchange rate).
After the debut of the Casper crossover, Hyundai dealers in South Korea reported on the success of the new model. In the first day after the announcement of the acceptance of pre-orders, almost 19 thousand orders for the new product were confirmed. To be more precise, 18,940 people applied for the purchase of the smallest Hyundai crossover, which is a record for a non-electric model of the company.
The length, width and height of the novelty are 3595, 1595 and 1575 mm, respectively. Despite its modest dimensions, the new Hyundai Casper has a five-door body and a salon designed for four adults. The wheelbase of the crossover is 2400 mm. The car is built on the Hyundai-Kia K1 platform, which is already used for the latest generation Hyundai i10 minicar.
The body of Hyundai Casper was created from scratch, in the exterior attention is drawn to the rear door handles hidden in the window frames, bunk headlights (low and high beam units are mounted in the bumper), an unusual radiator grille with a “gradient” pattern solution and visually expanding the body is stamped over the wheel arches.
The range of engines of the model includes two units of the Kappa family – a 1.0-liter gasoline naturally aspirated and turbo engine. Aspirated power – 75 hp, turbo – 99 hp. They are combined exclusively with a 4-speed “automatic” and front-wheel drive, a 4×4 transmission is not provided in the design in principle. A pure electric version of the model has also been announced – presumably it will be equipped with a 135 kW (184 hp) BorgWarner unit.
