Hyundai Creta facelift: What’s new?

The images show the mid-life facelift model but it is the Indonesian spec car. The updates will largely remain similar in the Indian market as well. Starting with the front-end the new Creta looks very different, especially with the design elements from the latest-generation Tucson.

Hyundai has adopted a new design language and the front-end has been designed according to that. The new Creta also gets the newly developed parametric grille that adds a wide grille look to the car. The width of the new grille of the upcoming Creta extends to the complete width of the vehicle. The DRLs are integrated into the grille but remains hidden when the car is switched off.

The main headlamp cluster is positioned down below on the bumper. The side of the Creta remains identical to the current version of the vehicle. It gets sharper tail lamps and a new boot lid design as well.

More features

While the layout of the cabin and largely the dashboard will remain identical to the current car, the facelifted version will get additional features. The revised feature list will include a new Advanced Driver Assist System or ADAS. That will add radar-based safety features to the car.

Just like the new cars – Mahindra XUV700 and the MG Astor, the new Creta will come with ADAS features that will include autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, road sign reading, and more such features.

Hyundai may offer the updated BlueLink connected car system with the facelifted version. The new system is capable of new safety features including tracking a stolen vehicle and remote immobilisation of the car. Other than that, we will get to see the features like valet mode too.

No changes in powertrain

Hyundai will carry forward the same powertrains to the new Creta facelift. This means the diesel variants will continue to get the 1.5-litre diesel engine, a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine. The transmission options will remain the same as well. Hyundai will only offer petrol engine options with the new Creta in Indonesia.
