This is a design comparison between Maruti Ignis and the upcoming Hyundai Casper. Both these vehicles can be termed as micro-SUVs. This segment is starting to take shape in the Indian automobile market in the immediate future. The Punch has been showcased by Tata Motors recently in its production-ready version. The boom in this segment could well be the next big thing in India. With the trend already leaning in favour of the SUVs in general, the micro-SUVs will be a great fit for people looking for SUVs in and around the entry-level segment. The Hyundai Casper might may its way to India in early 2022 to give competition to the likes of Punch, Ignis, Kwid and S-Presso. So, let us discuss the comparison between Maruti Ignis and Hyundai Casper.
Maruti Ignis vs Hyundai Casper – Design Comparison
Starting with the Ignis, we like the unique design element it brings to this comparison. It might have been around for a while, but it still looks strikingly bold and modern. The Ignis is most likely to find buyers in the younger population. The front fascia is bold with a large headlamp unit with LED DRLs integrated inside the headlamp cluster, plenty of chrome finish on the front grille, skid plate, sporty bumpers with fog lamps and more. The sides showcase the large wheel arches, stylish alloy wheels, not-too-busy door panels, roof rails and blacked-out A and B-pillars. The rear is quite bold as well with massive split taillamps. Another thing that stands out is the skid plate below the rear bumper which makes the entire exterior design quite sporty indeed. The overall silhouette is that of a tall-boy shape which is generally the pattern in this segment.
Being the new and modern micro-SUV from Hyundai, the Casper sports a completely modern exterior design. The front hosts the typical modern split headlamp type design with LED DRLs on the bonnet and actual headlamps on the bumper below. The black material between the LED DRLs looks nice. The main grille is a massive one and has a unique design pattern. The round headlamps with circular surround LED rings are placed on either side of the grille. A faux skid plate is also to be seen below the front bumper. The side profile is devoid of any characteristic sharp creases and wears a simple design. The alloys look really stylish along with roof-rails. The rear mirrors the front in that the circular lights are placed on either side of the bumper too. The main taillamps have a unique modern design and are placed in a black glass-like structure.
Both these micro-SUVs have their unique design elements which might attract all sorts of customers. It really depends on what people are looking for. But one thing is for sure. The Hyundai Casper does represent a modern design language of Hyundai. Let us know your pick of the two.
