Hyundai Casper: exterior design
Quirky is the word that best describes the Hyundai Casper’s design. Characterized by an upright and very boxy silhouette, the Casper has very unique design details. Like most new Hyundai SUVs, the face gets a split LED headlamp setup with the LED DRLs positioned on top, in a gloss black panel along with the brand logo. Meanwhile, the mail circular headlamps with LED rings are positioned in the bumper.
What’s really unique about the face are the triangular motifs on the silver grille. In fact, there seems to be two different versions of the grille, the other finished in gloss black with circular design motifs that mimic the headlamps. It also gets a faux silver skid plate and a flat bonnet. In typical SUV fashion, there’s generous body cladding all around.
In profile, you’ll notice the Casper’s heavily flared and squared-off wheel arches. The window line is particularly unique with different shapes for the front and rear windows. The A-pillar has been blacked-out, while the B-pillar is finished in body colour. Meanwhile, the rear door handles are neatly integrated in the C-pillar. The Casper also gets roof rails and stylish dual-tone alloy wheels.
At the back, the tail gate gets a dual-tone look with the upper half finished in gloss black, also featuring triangular LED light motifs. The circular tail lamps are positioned in the bumper below, matching the positioning of the headlamps. The rear bumper also gets a faux silver skid plate.

Hyundai Casper: interior
Hyundai hasn’t revealed images of the Casper’s interior yet. However, previous spy shots suggest that the Casper will come with white upholstery for the interior. The dashboard will be characterized by a free-standing touchscreen infotainment system. In typical Hyundai fashion, you can expect the interior to be loaded with features, including connected car tech.
