Hyundai will soon launch the all-new Creta in the Indian market and here are the pictures of the upcoming model. The all-new Hyundai Creta was caught testing for the first time under heavy camouflage in Beijing, China. Hyundai sells the Creta in the Chinese market as ix25 and the same updates are expected in the Indian version too.
The new pictures have been put by AutoHome. The all-new Creta will get the design inspiration from the new-generation Hyundai cars. The front grille of the vehicle is expected to be inspired by the all-new Santa Fe and will be hexagonal in shape. The cascading grille is finding its way to the many new Hyundai cars. The headlamps are expected to get updated with a new sleeker design. Hyundai may follow the separate housing for the DRLs and headlamp cluster with the all-new Creta in the market. The camouflage gets opening at the lower front part of the vehicle, which is expected to be the position of the main headlamps cluster.
The rear of the all-new Hyundai Creta will be updated with a more sleeker design language. It is expected to get sleeker tail lamps and a newly designed boot lid. From the side, the all-new Hyundai Creta will become longer and it also gets machined alloy wheels with aggressive design.
The all-new Creta will be launched in the international markets by mid-2019 but the Indian launch is expected to happen later this year. Hyundai may launch a seven-seater version of the Creta in the Indian market to take on the vehicles like H7X and the XUV 500 but the development is not clear yet. The South Korean brand will launch an all-new sub-4meter compact SUV in the Indian market that will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and more. To give space to the all-new vehicle and to offer an affordable 7-seater, Hyundai may just launch a 7-seater variant of the Creta.
There would not be many changes in the 7-seater version of the Creta. The body of the vehicle will be stretched to accommodate the extra row of seats in the vehicle. The Creta is an immensely popular SUV in India and it remains in the top-10 selling cars list in the market. Changing the whole set-up may go against Hyundai but with the new SUV like Tata Harrier arriving in the market, the Creta 7-seater can become a choice of many as it will provide 7-seats with a competitive price tag.
The all-new Creta will be powered by a set of new engines that will be BS-VI compliant. The engine details are not known yet. Hyundai is likely to offer both petrol and diesel engine options with the all-new Creta just like the current version. The upcoming Creta is expected to be launched by the mid-2019 in the Indian market. The price of the all-new Creta will also increase due to new features.
