Hyundai is gearing up to reveal the highly anticipated new Creta in the country next year, after months of rigorous road testing. The recent spy images of the upcoming model reveal a more distinctive boxy appearance, along with some noteworthy updates, like stylish alloy wheels, new bumpers, and split-LED taillights with dynamic turn indicators.
While the new Creta is expected to have substantial interior changes, no official details have been revealed as yet. That said, the car could very well receive a redesigned dashboard, new upholstery for the seats, and a plethora of other new features. The all-new Creta is certain to turn heads with its extensively updated design, which blends style with enhanced features to offer an exceptional ride experience.
Hyundai Creta Facelift: Engine
Even though Hyundai hasn't confirmed it yet, rumour has it that the next Creta redesign will include a new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine with 159bhp, which is a significant upgrade. Notably, the existing 1.5-litre diesel and naturally aspirated petrol engines are likely to continue.
Hyundai Creta Facelift: Exterior and Interior Features
With a focus on design changes, the new Creta is sure to be a game-changer, with its revamped grille, new bumper, and a slightly altered tailboard. Even though the car's profile is likely to stay more or less unchanged, the alloy wheel design will undergo subtle but noticeable changes.
Beyond its sleek design, the new Creta also promises cutting-edge technology, adding to its overall appeal. It is also expected to feature an advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) package, similar to that of the new Kia Seltos, and an advanced 360-degree camera. With a slew of minor upgrades and new upholstery colour options, the model's interior promises more comfort.
Hyundai Creta Facelift: Expected Price
It's a common practice for automakers to increase the prices of facelifted models. And the soon-to-be-released Creta is no expectation, which means that it will have a significant price increase over the outgoing model. Market speculations suggest that the SUV will have a starting price of roughly Rs 10.50 lakh.
This is the first update for the second-generation Creta, which made its debut in the Indian market in the middle of 2020.
