By now it’s become fairly well-known that the much-awaited Hyundai Creta facelift will launch later this month. As we’ve been saying, the upcoming Creta facelift will sport some styling changes and will even have some new features. In a recent development, the variant-wise features list of the new Hyundai Creta facelift has leaked online.
From this leaked document, it’s now clear that the new Hyundai Creta facelift will come with additional features like a wearable ‘Smart Key Band’, 6-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, electric sunroof, wireless charging, and cruise control. While the sunroof will be available with the SX automatic and SX(O) grade, the other new features will be available with the SX(O) variant only. The wearable smart key will work in tandem with a smartphone app called H-Band. This app can be downloaded from the Playstore on Android and the App Store on Apple devices.
The leaked document also reveals that the car will be available in two new exterior paint options – Passion Orange and Marina Blue. These new colours replace Earth Brown and Mystic Blue colour options. Moreover, the Passion Orange colour scheme will be available as a dual tone option with a black roof. The other dual tone paint option will include the Polar White with a Phantom Black roof option that will be carried over from the current car.
The 2018 Hyundai Creta facelift will look a lot like the Brazil-spec model. Up front, it will come with a ‘cascading’ grille and an updated bumper. Also, the car will get a new shark fin antenna, skid plates, updated tail lamps, and new design 17-inch alloy wheels. Engine options will be carried over from the current model, which means the car will be available with a 1.4-litre diesel, a 1.6-litre diesel, and a 1.6-litre petrol engine. The 1.6-litre engines will be available with both manual and automatic options, while the 1.4-litre diesel engine will offer only a manual transmission. Thanks to the various new feature additions, you can safely expect the top-end variants to get a significant price rise.
