The New Hyundai Casper Is So Charming It Harms

The Casper mini crossover, which takes its name from a skateboard technique, has actually been offered an early sneak peek by Hyundai

Hyundai - The New Hyundai Casper Is So Adorable It Hurts - News

A small crossover isn’t the sort of thing you ‘d usually discover us getting thrilled about here at CT towers, however the Hyundai Casper is no normal little high-rider. What you’re taking a look at here may simply be the most cute crossover ever made, with a charming aspect approaching Japanese Kei automobile levels.

It’ll be larger than Kei measurements, however not by much. The Casper is set to slot under the Venue (a vehicle you can have with a clutch pedal-less manual transmission), which is compact enough to share the rough footprint of a Ford Fiesta. With blocky wheel arch flares, fat B/C pillars and round headlight clusters it looks a little like a Toyota FJ Cruiser that’s diminished in the wash. We like it a lot.

It takes its name from, of all things, a skateboard technique that includes turning the board over. This, Hyundai states, resembles how its Casper is turning and altering “stereotypes” connected with little crossovers. In contrast to the wacky name and looks are some more normal foundations – although Hyundai hasn’t validated, we’re quite sure the Casper will share the i10 hatchback’s ‘BACHELOR’S DEGREE’ platform.

It’ll at first be offered with an option of 2 1.0-litre inline-three gas engines, a naturally-aspirated ‘MPI’ and the turbocharged ‘T-GDI’. In the i10, these systems benefit 66 and 98 bhp respectively.

Reportedly, the variety will broaden in 2023 to consist of an all-electric derivative utilizing a powertrain provided by BorgWarner. Prior to you ask, we’re not anticipating there to be a hot N variation with an effective gas engine, as enjoyable as that would be.

Although Hyundai has actually revealed pictures of the Casper’s outside from all angles, this isn’t a complete expose. That’ll take place later on in the year, at which point we’ll get a lot more info and our very first take a look at the interior.

Reservations for the cars and truck will open in South Korea eventually in September. Considered that we do not get the Venue in Europe (the tiniest Hyundai crossover for the continent is the Bayon), it appears not likely that the Casper will make it here. An embarassment if so.
