The render images have been created by an Artist Kleber Silva on Behance. The artist took the existing design of Crera and clubbed it with Santa Fe which is available in international markets. It must be noted that this is just a speculative render and the original product might be different from this. At the front, the larges cascading grille of current Creta has been redesigned.

The headlights are positioned on the bumper in such a way that, it acts as an extension of the front grille itself. The lower part of the front grille gets chrome garnish to add a premium feel. Turn indicators are positioned above the headlights similar to what we see on Hyundai Venue. The LED DRLs are designed in a way that half of it lies in the turn indicator section while the other half is inside the headlight cluster. Overall, the front looks very premium. Coming down, the bumper of the facelifted Creta render has also been redesigned.
