Hyundai Creta: What to expect?
Even though most of the test units of the Hyundai Creta facelift have been covered in camouflage so far, certain changes can be confirmed in the upcoming model. The most recent spy shots confirm an LED light bar connecting the two tail lamps. Overall, Creta’s design language will be in line with newer Hyundai SUVs like the Exter and Santa Fe. This means that it will get H-shaped LED DRLs and split LED headlamps up front. This design will be replicated on the tail lamps as well.
Inside, the Hyundai Creta facelift will retain the 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The biggest feature upgrade on the Creta is an ADAS package along with a 360-degree camera. Certain reports suggest that the SUV will get an all-black theme for the dashboard but the upholstery will flaunt dual-tone colours. The rear seats on the facelift will also get headrests for the passengers.
Under the hood, the Hyundai Creta facelift will add the 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine from the Verna to its powertrain options. This engine can produce a maximum power output of 160hp and can be mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DCT. The existing 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine units put out 115hp and 116hp respectively.
The new Hyundai Creta facelift will cost a small premium over the outgoing version. Prices for the SUV currently start at Rs 10.87 lakh and go up to Rs 19.20 lakh. Upon launch, the Hyundai Creta facelift will continue to rival Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Urban Cruiser HyRyder, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun, and Skoda Kushaq.
