Hyundai India introduced its first product with ADAS in India. The Hyundai will soon announce the prices of the Tucson. In future, Hyundai will make this technology more accessible by offering the ADAS in the mid-size segment Creta. Creta is due for a facelift and Hyundai is likely to bring the new car to the Indian market early next year.
The new Creta facelift will get substantial updates, especially in terms of features. The ADAS will be one of the highlights of the new Creta facelift. Hyundai has calibrated the ADAS for the Indian sub-continent region. This is why Tucson is reaching the Indian market so late. Earlier, the all-new Tucson was expected to reach the market in 2021 but the lockdown due to the pandemic delayed the ADAS testing in real-world conditions.
The new Creta facelift will also get a fresh look with the new parametric style grille. The new mid-size SUV will have DRLs inbuilt into the grille of the car.
Hyundai will continue to offer the same 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol, a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel and the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine options with the Creta. While Hyundai has not confirmed the engine options, we are likely to see mild-hybrid technology with the facelifted version Creta. However, the chances of getting the mild-hybrid system remain low.
Hyundai Creta already has one of the longest feature lists in the segment. The updated facelifted version will continue to offer a long list of features too. However, what exactly will be the addition to the current list of features will be revealed only when the car is launched.
Hyundai Creta remains popular in the segment
As per Hyundai, 60% of buyers of the SUV chose the diesel variants. While 51% of buyers are opting for the SX automatic while 20% of customers chose the SX(O) trim. The cabin of the all-new Creta was thoroughly updated too. To start with the new massive 10.25-inch infotainment screen with BlueLink connected technology.
The 7.0-inch Supervision instrument cluster is all-digital and offers a premium look to the car. The top-end variants will also offer an 8-speaker system from Bose and features like Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, wireless charging and a massive panoramic sunroof. The car also offers an ambient lighting system, air purifier and more.
Hyundai India will also bring all-new cars like the Ioniq5 and all-new Verna to the Indian market loaded with ADAS. The ADAS is also likely to be available with the more premium Alcazar after the Hyundai Creta facelift gets the features.
