The second-generation Hyundai Creta launched with much fanfare at the beginning of 2020. However, as it has always been a trend, Hyundai is quick enough to bring updates to its vehicles, and the same has happened with the Creta. The Indonesian market has already received the first facelift for the second-generation Creta, which is all set to arrive on the Indian shores in the second half of 2022. A walk-around video of this new version of Hyundai Creta from Indonesia has surfaced on the internet. This video gives a glimpse of how the Indian version of the facelifted Creta will look.
The black-coloured Hyundai Creta shown in the video by DreamWheels is the top-spec variant of the SUV sold in Indonesia. On the outside, the SUV now features a much bolder and sharper looking parametric grille with daytime running LEDs integrated into its outer edges. The headlamps are now positioned slightly lower and look smaller than the current setup. The halogen projector headlamp arrangement shown here will be available in the lower and mid-spec variants of the Indian version of the SUV. The higher variants will get an all-LED setup for the headlamps.

The side profile of this updated version of the Hyundai Creta now comes with a new design for the 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, which might be the same in the upcoming Indian version too. Other than this, there is no other change in the side profile of the SUV. The rear profile is tweaked with the omission of the black strip running across the width of the boot lid and redesigned LED tail lamps, and both these changes will come in the Indian-spec model.
Cabin remains similar
The video presenter then shows us the cabin of the updated Hyundai Creta, which is the top-spec version of the Indonesian market. Here, the instrument console is a simple analogue arrangement with a monotone MID in between. While this arrangement in the instrument console will be available in the lower and mid-spec variants, the top-spec variant of the upcoming India-spec model might come with a full-TFT console from the Alcazar.
The centre console of this version of the Creta visible in the video shows an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a panel for automatic climate control below it. This arrangement is already available in the mid-spec variants of the current form of Creta and will be carried forward in the facelifted model as well. However, the top-spec variant will get a bigger 10.25-inch screen with added connected car features in the India-spec model.
Apart from the minor visual changes and feature additions, the facelifted Hyundai Creta for India will retain its current lineup of three powertrains – 1.5-litre petrol, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre diesel – without any changes.
