Hyundai launched the all-new Creta in the Indian market last year. The mid-size SUV is the best-selling vehicle in the segment and it leads the segment by a huge margin. Hyundai has already started working on the facelifted version of the Creta and the manufacturer has already started testing the vehicle internationally. Well, here is a rendered image that indicates what the upcoming facelifted version of the Creta will look like.
Rashi Jain has created a digitally rendered image based on the spy shots of the upcoming facelifted version of the Creta. Since the Creta is highly popular in India and sells in large volume, the facelift is likely to be launched in the Indian market as soon as its international debut.
There are no major changes in the design of the Creta as it is only a facelifted model. The front-end of the vehicle has received a new look, especially with the new grille design. The grille now has DRLs integrated into it. While this may seem like a futuristic design, Hyundai ti may not offer such DRLs integrated into the grille and also offer a second set of DRLs above the headlamps.
The images of the test mule spotted in Korea only shows a glimpse of the headlamp and the DRLs cluster. The rest of the Creta remains the same. There will not be many changes on the body structure but the rear may get a few updates as well. Overall, the Creta will look sharper than the current model but changes will be limited.
Same engine options
Hyundai will continue to offer the same 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol, a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel and the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine options with the Creta. While Hyundai has not confirmed the engine options, we are likely to see mild-hybrid technology with the facelifted version Creta. However, the chances of getting the mild-hybrid system remain low.
Hyundai Creta already has one of the longest feature lists in the segment. The updated facelifted version will continue to offer a long list of features too. However, what exactly will be the addition to the current list of the features will be revealed only when the car is launched.
Hyundai Creta remains high in demand
As per Hyundai, 60% of buyers of the SUV chose the diesel variants. While 51% of buyers are opting for the SX automatic while 20% of customers chose the SX(O) trim. The cabin of the all-new Creta was thoroughly updated too. To start with the new massive 10.25-inch infotainment screen with BlueLink connected technology.
The 7.0-inch Supervision instrument cluster is all-digital and offers a premium look to the car. The top-end variants will also offer an 8-speaker system from Bose and features like Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, wireless charging and a massive panoramic sunroof. The car also offers an ambient lighting system, air purifier and more.
