There’s no doubt about how much the Hyundai Creta has been loved by the Indian car buying audience. Despite the ever-increasing competition in the midsize SUV segment and its premium pricing which has shot up significantly in recent years, the craze for Hyundai Creta refuses to slow down. However, as much as it is loved by an average car buyer, it is not a much-preferred pick among car enthusiasts and customizers. However, among all the not-so-significantly customized Cretas on the Indian roads, this particular black-coloured Creta is meant to arrest your attention.

The heavily-customized black-coloured second-generation Hyundai Creta discussed here is owned by an Instagram user named Namish Gambhir, who has uploaded a few pictures and videos of his Creta on his Instagram account named ‘Blackhawk’. Yes, that’s what Namish loves to call his Creta, due to its all-black appeal. While the Creta owned by Gambhir is not as extensively modified as many sports cars you must have seen, the subtle modifications done to its exterior make it one attention-grabbing SUV.

Hyundai Creta Blackhawk
Starting from the front, the black-coloured Hyundai Creta ‘Blackhawk’ owned by Namish ditches the chrome-bathed grille of the stock version for a more aggressive-looking all-black grille. This grille misses out on any chrome finishing and the Hyundai logo and gets honeycomb mesh which accentuates its sporty appeal even more. Another big change carried out at the front of this Hyundai Creta is the carbon fibre finish for the front hood, which adds another heavy dash of sportiness to the front profile of the SUV.
Move towards the side, and this Hyundai Creta ‘Blackhawk’ impresses you with its tweaked stance, thanks to the aftermarket 18-inch machined alloy wheels. These alloy wheels are shod with lower-profile tyres, which enhance the sportiness of this Hyundai Creta even more. While the stock version of the Hyundai Creta comes with floating silver applique on the C-pillar, this customized Creta has that panel painted in gloss black, thus giving the SUV here an all-black appeal.
The only bits added to the rear profile of this customized Hyundai Creta are the additional LED lights in place of the reflectors of the rear bumper. After all these changes, the Creta ‘Blackhawk’ has been treated with a 9H nano ceramic coating, which gives a shinier appeal to the black paint of the Creta.
Currently, in its second-generation version, the Hyundai Creta is available with a 1.5-litre 115 PS naturally-aspirated petrol, a 1.5-litre 115 PS diesel and a 1.4-litre 140 PS turbocharged petrol engine. The facelifted version of this Hyundai Creta has already arrived in a few global markets and is expected to hit the Indian shores before the end of 2022.
