Special feature of 6 airbags
Coming with 6 airbags as standard is a huge plus point for the Exeter as 6 airbags are generally not available in this segment due to high cost and even some high segment SUVs don’t come with this feature come.

Xeter is expected to be launched in August this year. It will be placed below the Venue in the company’s lineup and will be the entry level SUV for the company. Hyundai has confirmed that it will get a rear camera and many other features. Exeter will compete with Tata Punch. It will further strengthen Hyundai’s SUV portfolio with the Venue and Creta in the sub-Rs 15 lakh SUV space.
