Hyundai launched the new generation Creta last year in the Indian market. Despite its polarizing design, it is selling like hotcakes and it once again managed to become the best selling mid-size SUV. Recently, a facelift of the Creta was spotted on the international roads. Here, is a rendering of the new generation of Creta based on the spy shots.
The rendering is done by KDesign AG. The artist has only made the render of the front and the rear of the SUV. The interior has not been rendered by the artist. Hyundai is probably working on giving Creta a facelift because many people did not like its new design. The spy pictures revealed that the Creta will get an all-new face that will be inspired by the international spec Tucson. The new design language of Creta will make it fall in line with the rest of Hyundai’s design language.
Up-front, we can see that there is an all-new grille design that integrates with the LED Daytime Running Lamps. Just like the current one, the headlamp units are still LED units but are now placed vertically in the lower half of the bumper. So, it is a split headlamp design. Due to all this bumper is all-new and there are no fog lamps because they are no longer needed.
The side profile stays the same as the current Creta. So, there are pronounced wheel arches with black plastic cladding. The alloy wheels can also be new to freshen up the look. At the rear, there is a new set of LED tail lamps and a light bar that connects both the tail lamp units. The rear tail lamps are also derived from Tucson. However, where Tucson gets four units, Creta being a more affordable SUV gets only two. The reverse light is now placed in the lower half of the bumper where we can also see a faux skid plate.
We do not expect Hyundai to make any major changes to the interior of the Creta Facelift. It might get some new materials to make the cabin feel more upmarket and premium. It will continue to come equipped with a lot of features just like any other Hyundai. The Korean manufacturer might also add some more features like a 360-degree parking camera, a fully digital instrument cluster, blind view monitor, front parking sensors etc.
There will be no mechanical changes to the Creta Facelift. So, it will be offered with three engine options. There would be a naturally aspirated petrol engine, turbocharged diesel engine and a turbocharged petrol engine. The engines would be offered with a manual gearbox or an automatic transmission. The turbocharged petrol engine would come with an automatic gearbox as standard. The Creta Facelift will first launch in the international markets. We expect the Creta Facelift to get launched in India in late 2022 or in 2023.
