The new Hyundai Creta gets many subtle upgrades over its predecessor and resembles the Brazilian-spec Creta Sport in terms of looks. First introduced in the country around three years ago, the new model will further help the Korean car manufacturer strengthen its foothold in India. Mechanically, it continues to be powered by the existing engine options.
The Hyundai Creta facelift sports a new hexagonal grille with a chrome frame. For freshness, the SUV receives a fresh set of sweptback headlamps featuring projector lamps and LED DRLs. Moreover, the new vehicle gets front bumpers and chrome inserts around the air dam. Fog lamps with separate housing are positioned beside the air dam. The new Creta also features body-coloured ORVMs with integrated turn signals and new dual-tone alloy wheels. Additionally, the top-spec version sports a dual-tone exterior combination with a black roof.
As for the interior, the new Creta gets improved quality dual-tone upholstery and an updated touchscreen infotainment system which is borrowed from the new Elite i20. To strengthen competition, Hyundai has also offered an optional sunroof in the top-spec variant. The occupant space remains unchanged.
Under the hood, the Creta is powered by existing engine options – one petrol and two diesel engine options. The petrol version gets a 1.6-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine that generates 123bhp of power and 151Nm of torque. The diesel version includes 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre engine options that generates 89bhp and 126bhp respectively. Transmission options include a six-speed manual and six-speed automatic options.
