Korean automaker Hyundai introduced the Casper into its lineup as the new entry-level crossover. The biggest characteristic that got people talking about the new vehicle is its small dimensions. At 3,595 mm in length, 1,595 mm in width, and 1,575 mm in height, it is even smaller than the Hyundai Venue.

But despite the subcompact city car’s small dimensions, the car brand still managed to make the most of out it. Hyundai unveiled the interior features of the Casper, showcasing the folding front seats. This can help maximize the cabin space of the vehicle.

Considering that most people are on the go these days, the folding front seats can be used for in-car dining. Especially now with the COVID-19 situation where restaurants and fast-food chains don’t operate at 100 percent, the said feature can be used as a mobile table for drivers and passengers.

The folding front seats are not the only features that Hyundai incorporated to maximize the interior space and improve the practicality. Inside, the cabin doesn’t have a center console that usually houses the center glove box. Instead, it comes with two cup holders that are just on the same level as the front seats.

Numbers-wise, the maximum cargo capacity is rated at 301 liters. The second-row seats can slide forwards and backward by 160mm, while items with a length of 2,059mm can fit in the cabin if the front and rear seats are folded down.

Under the hood, the subcompact city car is powered by a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder naturally aspirated engine that is capable of producing 75 hp and 95 Nm of torque. A turbocharged option is also available for those who want a powerful unit that makes 99 hp.

Other features include 8-inch touchscreen infotainment, digital instrument cluster, 6-speaker audio system, seven airbags, forward collision avoidance assist, lane-keeping assist, smart cruise control, and blind-spot collision-avoidance assist.

Younger fans might not be aware of it, but the Korean wave or hallyu predates the slick choreography of K-pop groups and the hearty servings of samgyupsal. It’s actually rooted in the writings of Kim Gu, who led the movement to set Korea free from Japanese occupation during the 1920s.

Kim wanted Korea to be a power in its own right, but not in terms of political or military might. He was aware of the suffering his people endured when Japan annexed the country, and so he harbored the idea that Korean culture can be used as a soft power to shape global perception through attraction, not coercion.
