Hyundai recently unveiled the next-generation Creta at the Auto Expo this year and will be launching it in the market later this month. Apart from that Hyundai also has plans to launch a 7-seater version of the Hyundai Creta to compete with cars like Mahindra XUV500, Mahindra Scorpio in the segment. Here we have render that shows how the 7-seater version of the Creta seater would look like if they plan to launch one.
The render has been shared by Indian Autos Blog on their website and is based on the next-gen Creta that will be launched in the market soon. From the images it is evident the Creta 7-seater looks like a stretched out version of the regular Creta. At the front it gets a Boomerang shaped split LED DRL with projector type headlamps. The grille at the front is wider with Hyundai loo in the centre. The lower part of the bumper gets fog lamps, and silver colour skid plates.
The side profile of the Creta 7-seater is where the difference is noticeable. The Alloy wheels, floating rood design, side skirts all remain the same but in order to accommodate the third row of seats, designer had pushed the rear wheels a bit more backwards increasing the wheelbase and also the length of the vehicle. passengers on the third row seats just like any other six or seven seater vehicle get windows that can’t be opened.
The image does not show the interiors, layout of seats or the features it would offer. Knowing Hyundai it would be safe to expect that Hyundai will be providing a host of features something similar to what we would be getting with the next-gen Creta. Coming to the engine options, the new Creta will be launched with three engine options. The same set of engine that we have seen in Kia Seltos.
A 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol, a 1.5 litre diesel engine and a 1.4 litre turbo petrol engine. The 1.5 petrol will get a manual and CVT gearbox, The diesel will be launched with a manual and a torque converter and the turbo petrol unit will get a manual and a DCT gearbox. The same set of engine and gearbox is likely to be seen in the 6-seater Creta if Hyundai launches one anytime soon. The render is totally a work of imagination and is not an official sketch of the 7-seater Hyundai Creta.
