The new Hyundai Creta facelift is only a few days away from its launch. However, ahead of its official launch, slides of the product presentation module have leaked online. The leaked product presentation module goes on to reveal the variants, features, colour options, and even the prices of the upcoming facelift. We have summed up all the details in 5 things you might not know about.
A comprehensively revised front-end and an updated interior with more features
The upcoming Creta facelift will get a comprehensively updated front-end. The front-end will get bi-functional projector headlights with LED DRLs. It will also get the company’s signature cascading effect grille. The bumper will have a dual-tone look with a faux skid plate. Changes for the side profile are restricted to the new 17-inch dual-tone diamond-cut alloy wheels for the top trims. The lower variants get 16-inch steel and alloy wheels. Changes at the rear are restricted to split tail-lights and an updated bumper with new reflectors.
Even the interior gets some revisions. The 2018 Hyundai Creta gets a new upholstery and a new trim for the aircon vents. For the dual tone colour options, the cabin of this compact SUV gets an orange colour interior pack (orange accents on the seats and gear lever).
New colour options
The new Hyundai Creta facelift will be available in as many as seven single-tone exterior colours – Polar White, Sleek Silver, Phantom Black, Stardust, Fiery Red, Passion Orange and Marina Blue. Besides, there are two dual-tone colours on offer as well – Polar White with Phantom Black and Passion Orange with Phantom Black. Currently, the Creta is available in the following colour options – Sleek Silver, Phantom Black, Mystic Blue, Earth Brown, Polar White, Star Dust, and Red Passion.
Many new premium features
In terms of features, the upcoming Hyundai Creta facelift will offer a Smart Key Band, 6-way power adjustable driver’s seat, electric sunroof, wireless charging and cruise control. Except for the electric sunroof, which will be available on the SX and SX(O) trims, all other aforementioned features will be available on the SX(O) trim only.
While the upcoming Creta facelift will get a host of styling updates and feature additions, the engines will remain unchanged. This means the Creta will continue to offer a 1.4-litre diesel engine, a 1.6-litre diesel engine, and a 1.6-litre petrol engine. The 1.6-litre diesel engine outputs 128 PS and 260 Nm. The 1.6-litre petrol engine offers 123 PS and 151 Nm. The 1.4-litre diesel engine offers 90 PS and 220 Nm. While the 1.6-litre engines are available with 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions, the 1.4-litre diesel engine is available with a 6-speed manual transmission only. So, basically, nothing changes in terms of specifications.
Slight difference in prices
Prices of the new Hyundai Creta will start at Rs. 9.47 lakhs and go all the way up to Rs. 15.07 lakhs (ex-showroom). However, these will be introductory prices and will go up some days after the launch. In comparison, prices of the current Creta start at Rs 10 lakh. The top-end model costs Rs 14.60 lakh. Basically, the lower trims, which won’t get the new features but will have an updated styling, will cost a bit lesser now. On the other hand, the top-end trim, which gets many new features, will cost a bit extra. Currently, the SX trim costs Rs 12.50 lakh. There won’t be an increment in the price of this variant. So, overall, prices won’t see a significant difference, which should work in favour of the upcoming SUV.
