The new Creta set to launch later next year has been spotted on test drives.
The top-selling SUV in India will be receiving a facelift modeled after the new-gen Tucson.
Appearance And Exterior Features
The new Creta’s outward appearance will possess elements of Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design language.
Much like the Tucson, the new Creta comes with a new fog lamp assembly, revised bumper design and faux skid plate.
It has a muscular hood along with a lower central air dam, LED DRLs and headlamp cluster in a dark finish.
Other exterior features include new alloy wheel design and split tail lamps.
The car is surrounded on the sides by roof rails, B-pillars, ORVMs, and designer alloy wheels.
The back of the car is fitted with split tail lamps, a shark-fin antenna, and a window wiper.
There aren’t a lot of changes inside the 5-seater cabin.
It comes with a 7.0-inch instrument cluster and becomes more feature-rich with the addition of a HUD head up unit.
Other features include-
- New leather upholstery
- Ventilated front seats
- Powered driver’s seat
- 8-speaker Bose premium audio system
- Auto dimming inside rear view mirror

There are a plethora of safety features which should put both driver and passengers at ease

The Creta is offered with 3 engine variants- two petrol and one engine.
- 1.5 liter naturally aspirated petrol engine producing 115 hp power and 144 Nm torque
- 1.4 liter turbocharged petrol engine producing 140 hp power and 242 Nm torque
Single Diesel Engine-
1.5 liter turbocharged diesel engine which offers 115 hp power and 250 Nm torque.
Transmission options comprise a 6-speed manual and 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
The turbocharged petrol engine will be mated to a 7-speed DCT.
There is no word yet on the price since it will be revealed upon launch. There are high chances that it will receive a hike from the going rate of Rs. 9.99 lakh.
