Hyundai is India’s second largest car manufacturer and has a wide range of vehicles in its the lineup. Hyundai recently launched the facelifted Verna and all-new Creta SUV in the market. Creta has been a very popular car in the segment for years. The main reason behind it is the looks and the features that the compact SUV offers, at a relatively affordable price tag. The all-new Creta is no different and has a futuristic design with feature loaded interiors. Meanwhile, Hyundai has also has been working on a 7-seater version of Creta and has been spotted testing abroad couple of times. Here we have a video that shows Hyundai’s upcoming 7-seat version of the SUV being tested on our roads.
The video has been uploaded by DCV BIKES on his youtube channel. The video starts by showing the vlogger riding his Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R sportsbike and suddenly we see a heavily camouflaged SUV driven right next to the bike. The biker does not give much importance to the car and overtakes as we can see in the video.
The car that was driven next to superbike was the upcoming 7-seater version of Hyundai Creta. The car can be easily identified by looking the alloy wheels and the side profile which is similar to the one seen in new Creta. The main rivals for this upcoming SUV will be the soon to be launched Tata Gravitas and MG Hector Plus. The Hyundai Creta 7-seater will be a bit longer than the regular 5-seater version to accommodate the third row of seats.
In terms of design, the seven seater version of the Creta is likely to look a lot like the regular version. It will have split boomerang shaped LED DRL, tri-beam LED headlight, a wide grille and a faux skid plate at the bottom. As seen in the video, the upcoming version is a bit longer and the window area for third row passenger was covered completely, and so were the rear lights.
Just like at the front, rear of the Creta will also be similar and will be Creta 5-seater like all-LED tail lights. With three row seats in place, the boot space on the upcoming Creta is likely to be compromised a bit. The 7-seater version will also be getting the same set of engines as the 5-seater version. It will be powered by a 1.5 litre petrol and diesel and a 1.4 litre turbo petrol engine. As of now Hyundai has not given an exact date on when they will be launching this new version. It is expected that Hyundai will launch the car by 2022.
