Hyundai Exter Ownership and Modifications
This review comes from Auto Journal India on YouTube. The host has a candid interaction with the owner of the Exter. There are tons of modifications to this micro-SUV. The most prominent aspect is the new alloy wheels painted in black with red brake callipers. To accommodate these, the owner has even lifted the car slightly. It ensures that the body of the car doesn’t brush against the tyre if 5 people are sitting in it. Apart from that, the exterior appearance is massively enhanced with a PPF, matte wrap and gloss black elements on the roof, side body cladding and wheel arches. At the rear, there is a new bumper with a skid plate and new exhaust for added sportiness.
The Exter owner already has the Mahindra Scorpio N. He wanted a car for the city commute for which the automatic transmission is ideal. He didn’t like the AMT of the Punch. Hence, he opted for the Exter. In addition, he loves the interior of the car. There is a new ambient lighting, a new audio system, a steering wrap and wireless Android. He often takes the car on the highways for long journeys in addition to city driving. He clearly mentions that he is able to achieve high mileage in both conditions. In city environment, he gets around 15 km/l and on highways, he even gets over 20 km/l. All in all, he is totally happy with the car.
