Hyundai gives the Creta a bit of a sporty flavour with black accents all around.
Roughly a year ago, Hyundai unveiled the Creta facelift in Brazil. Ever since it was showcased, we’d been hoping to see the Korean manufacturer give a similar nip-and-tuck job to its popular SUV in India. That, however, hasn’t happened as yet. And while we still wait for an updated Creta here, Hyundai Brazil has now gone a step further as they’ve launched a sportier version of the SUV. Naturally, it’s billed as the Creta Sport.
So, what all has changed? The exterior of the Hyundai Creta Sport majorly comes with a lot of black bits - glossy black grille and slats, black cladding all around, black outside rear-view mirror, black roof rails, interesting looking 5-spoke 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels with dual-tone treatment. Around the back, the Sport version gets a black roof-mounted spoiler that clearly stands out, along with a black shark fin antenna and a new rear bumper.
The Creta Sport dons an all-black interior to match the sporty theme running on the outside. As you can see in the pictures, the seat upholstery is black and so is the dashboard. Features and equipment are largely unchanged, meaning this variant also gets a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
The Brazil-spec Hyundai Creta comes powered by either a 2.0-litre petrol or a 1.6-litre petrol engine. These engines can also run on ethanol. Transmission options include a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic.
While the Creta Sport looks quite attractive, it’s unlikely that you’ll ever see it our roads. That said, the Hyundai Creta in India is due for a mid-life update and it should be out in the next couple of months.
