Hyundai has unveiled the new Creta facelift in Indonesia at the ongoing GIIAS 2021. The new Creta gets a number of changes on the outside and it now looks much more premium with the face inspired by the Hyundai Palisade SUV.
Even though it is an Indonesian-spec Creta, the same changes will also apply to the Indian market. The changes include a heavily reworked front-end. It gets the new design language that the Hyundai Palisade and the Tucson get in the international markets.
The new Creta also comes with the new Parametric Grille that comes with camouflaged DRLs integrated into the grille itself. The DRLs are not visible when the car is turned off. The headlamp units are positioned down below in the bumper. The headlamp housings have changed too and it is now sharper looking. Even the rear of the car gets a few changes including new tail lamps and a tweaked boot lid. There are no changes to the side profile of the car.
Cabin changes as well
The new Creta also gets a few changes inside the cabin as well. The car now gets a massive 10.25-inch instrument cluster that we get with the Alcazar in India. Other features include the 8-speaker system from Bose, an 8.0-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and more.
The most important update that the new Creta has received is the new safety features. Hyundai has added the ADAS or the Advanced Driver Assist Systems to the Creta. The same is also available with the newly introduced Mahindra XUV700 and the MG Astor in the Indian market.
The new ADAS will make the Creta much safer by adding features like an adaptive cruise control system, blind-spot monitor, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic collision warning, autonomous emergency braking and many other features.
Hyundai has also updated the BlueLink system in the car and it now offers a range of new features including tracking the car live, immobilisation of a moving vehicle, valet parking mode and many others through the app.
Will come to India next year
While Hyundai is yet to officially comment on the arrival of the new Creta facelift, it is highly likely that the new updated version will launch in India next year. Hyundai launched the all-new Creta in the Indian market last year and it has already become quite popular as well. Hyundai will offer the same engine and transmission options in the Indian market including both petrol and diesel engines.
