The interior layout and list of standard features for the South Korean spec Hyundai Casper have been revealed just a few weeks after the first official images were released. The smallest crossover from the manufacturer boasts a number of interesting party tricks and a generous list of standard features.
Within its local market, three trims of the Hyundai Casper will be made available. The entry-level Smart trim shows-off a set of 15-inch steel wheels, LED DRLs and colour-coded mirrors. Safety is conclusive with forward collision avoidance assist, lane departure prevention, lane keep assist, high beam assist, driver attention warning and a forward vehicle departure notification all offered as standard. This is supported by a seven airbag configuration, rear park distance monitoring and TMPS. Comfort and entertainment features consist of a 4,2-inch LCD cluster connected to a two speaker system, one USB charger and cruise control.
The Modern trim adds a set of metal skid plates, heated leather steering wheel, armrest for the driver, a purple interior mood lamp and artificial leather upholstery for the seats, door armrest and centre console. Both front seats are heated but only the driver benefits from ventilation.
A 50:50 split rear seat, push button start and four speaker system provides an even more conclusive package. At this level, the Hyundai Casper is also fitted with a two-wheel drive rough road driving mode that caters to snow, sand and mud surfaces for owners who want to be a bit more adventurous.
The flagship Inspiration model adds an array of safety features such as forward collision avoidance, blind-spot collision avoidance, rear cross traffic collision prevention, safe exit warning, smart cruise control and a navigation-based smart cruise control system. Projection headlamps, LED indicators for the door mirrors, LED rear combination headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, rear disc brakes and a roof rack are included.
The cabin benefits from houndstooth head-lining, a full folding first row of seats and a second row bench that can slide and recline. Comfort and convenience is supplied by full auto climate control with a micro air filter, additional USB ports and an 8,0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with six-speakers.
The South Korean manufacturer confirms that the Hyundai Casper can be had with a naturally aspirated or turbocharged 1,0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine which sends power to the front wheels with a four-speed automatic transmission exclusively.
The Hyundai Casper is yet to be confirmed for a South African introduction.
