Hyundai is working on the new Creta. The SUV is expected to have a new styling, a revised feature list, and mild mechanical updates. The Hyundai Creta facelift will debut by the end of this year.
The second-generation Hyundai Creta's styling was largely inspired by the Hyundai Palisade. The grill design, headlamp, and DRL positioning of the Creta were more in line with the then family design sported by most Hyundai SUVs.
More recently, a prototype of the Hyundai Creta facelift was spotted in the international market. Largely the SUV is under the wraps; however, we did get a glimpse of its new grill design, which hints at the fact that Hyundai will bring in the 2022 Creta with a more up-to-date family design language.
The updated Hyundai Creta is expected by the end of this year, with a look borrowed from the Hyundai Tucson, which was launched in the international market some time ago.
The Hyundai Creta – along with the Kia Seltos – is the most feature-loaded SUV in the segment. The current Creta is also offered with a variety of engine and transmission options; however, there are a few things that are absent in the current SUV.
The sporty 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine is currently offered with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic only. The facelift Creta is likely to get a six-speed manual option with its 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit. Also, the iMT (clutchless-manual), which is offered with the Kia Seltos, is likely to make its way in the Hyundai Creta facelift.
Most mechanical bits will be carried over to the updated Hyundai Creta. An updated design and a rehashed feature list will raise its price by Rs 35,000 – 50,000 (approximately). The outgoing Hyundai Creta is priced between Rs 10 and 17.66 lakh (ex-showroom).
