Motormind is a Bangalore-based customization outfit that offers various car modifications. The outfit has come up with a new body kit for the Hyundai Creta compact SUV called the Deadlift. The Deadlift body kit is priced at Rs. 1.08 lakhs but the first 30 people booking it will get the kits at a massive, 30 percent discount. After discount, the price of this body kit is Rs. 72,800.

The MotorMind Deadlift body kit for the Hyundai Creta consists of a new front grill, front bumper, rear bumper, side skirt, fender flares, diffuser and spoiler. All these elements can be opted for in custom colours as well. To sum it up, the body kit is designed to make the Hyundai Creta stand out from the thousands of other stock Cretas on Indian roads. It does make the compact SUV look quite sharp, and edgy.
The body kit will fit all variants of the Hyundai Creta sold currently in India. The compact SUV is offered with 3 engine options – 1.4 liter and 1.6 liter turbodiesels, and a 1.6 liter naturally aspirated petrol. All engines get 6 speed manual gearboxes as standard while the larger petrol and diesel engines are also offered with a 6 speed torque converter automatic gearbox option.
Average ex-showroom prices of the Creta start from Rs. 9.5 lakhs, and the SUV got a midlife facelift recently. The Deadlift body kit from MotorMind will be liked mainly by those who have the pre-facelift Creta as they would want to give their rides a makeover. However, even the owners of the facelifted Hyundai Creta may opt for this kit if they want to.
This modification kit does not make any mechanical changes to the Hyundai Creta. Diesel Creta owners can opt for remaps or tuning boxes to make their SUVs a lot more powerful if they want to. Performance modification options for the petrol Creta are limited to free flow exhausts, cold air intakes and remaps, all of which make marginal difference in performance.
The Hyundai Creta is India’s best selling compact SUV, outselling the likes of the Maruti S-Cross and the Renault duster many times over. The Creta will be replaced by an all-new, 2nd generation model sometime in 2020. The 2nd gen Hyundai Creta will be a 7 seater, and will be significantly larger than the current model. It’s also expected to get pricier, and will rival the Mahindra XUV500 directly. We expect the new Creta to get more powerful given the additional weight it will have to pull around.
