The Hyundai Creta has been one of the most successful cars from the manufacturer in India. Hyundai ruled the mid-size SUV segment with the Creta until recently when the all-new Kia Seltos launched in the Indian market. The Hyundai Creta is challenged by the newer and more advanced Kia Seltos in the Indian market right but soon, Hyundai will launch the all-new Creta to the market, which will allow the manufacturer to take on the competition. The all-new, second-generation Hyundai Creta will be launched in the Indian market in March 2020.
As per details revealed by ACI, the all-new Hyundai Creta will be launched in the middle of March this year. The report also adds that the vehicle will be launched by the brand ambassador Shahrukh Khan. Before that, Hyundai will showcase the all-new Hyundai Creta at the 2020 Auto Expo that will happen in February this year.
Hyundai has been testing the all-new Creta in the Indian market for some time now and the updated version is expected to be similar to the Hyundai ix25, which is the Chinese version of the car. The second-generation Hyundai Creta will get a new split headlamp set-up, which is quickly becoming a norm in the Indian market. Also, the all-new vehicle will get a new grille, new bumper and a slew of other changes that make it look completely different from the current version. On the side, the upcoming Hyundai Creta will get a slightly different shape with new alloy wheels. At the rear, the all-new Creta will get split LED tail lamps among other things.
The cabin will also become much more advanced and may get an all-black theme. Hyundai will also add modern features including the 10.25-inch infotainment system with the BlueLink system, air purifier and other such features. Hyundai has always been known for their long feature list and the Creta is expected to follow the similar lines.
The all-new Hyundai Creta will get powered by a different set of engines. To start with, the engines of the Hyundai Creta will be similar to the Kia Seltos. We may get to see the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine on the Creta too. However, the other two engines, 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol and the 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine options will be available with the Hyundai Creta when it launches in the Indian market.
The upcoming Hyundai Creta will make the competition stiffer in the segment. Currently, the Kia Seltos has claimed the top position on the sales chart but Hyundai Creta bounced back last month and reclaimed the top position.
