Now they are trying to repeat the same success in the 7 seater segment with the launch of the 2020 Hyundai Creta 7-seater. Hyundai Creta will arrive in its 2nd generation in 2020. This vehicle will be available in 5-seater as well as a 7-seater avatar. This will be Hyundai’s first 7 seater SUV. Hyundai currently has 5 SUV’s up to its sleeve – Venue, Kona, Tucson, Santa Fe, Palisade.
2020 Hyundai Creta 7-seater Launch
Hyundai Creta or the ix25 has been launched in China. There are some speculations that the vehicle will be launched in India as a 5 as well as 7-seater. This will insights for the new competition that has emerged within the automobile industry wherein existing 5 seater SUV are converted into 7-seaters if the platform can support the structure. The Hyundai Creta 7-seater will be launched around the time of the Auto Expo 2020. There is a fair idea on how the vehicle will look as the ix25 has been launched in China. The Chinese version of the vehicle will be the framework for the model in India. As for now, there is official news from Hyundai about the launch of this vehicle in India. 2020 Hyundai Creta 7-seater SUV will be a hit as people in India want value for money products. The launch of this vehicle will reveal the exact price of the vehicle. For now, we have speculated the price of the product ahead in the article.
2020 Hyundai Creta 7-seater Price
The price of the Hyundai Creta 7- seater in India will range from Rs 11 lakhs to 17 lakhs. This price will be justified as other 7-seater SUVs in India are in the same range. At this price, the vehicle overlaps with the top-end variant of the 5-seater Creta. The option that it creates because of this puts the customer in a dilemma whether to buy a 7-seater or 5-seater. The car will be more expensive than regular Creta, which is for sure. It will be aimed squarely at the Tata Hexa, Toyota Innova and the Mahindra XUV500. These 3 cars dominate the MPV segment like no other car. They also have a variety of engine options, transmission options and variants. Thus, we can conclude that the 7 Seater Hyundai Creta with the added row will be close to that model range.
2020 Hyundai Creta 7-seater Engine
The new Hyundai Creta will not have 3 engine options as before. With BS6 norms kicking in the new car will get 2 new 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, both of which will produce 115bhp. The 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre engines will be discontinued. It will be interesting to see what diesel engines does Hyundai then offer on the Verna and i20 which also use these engines. These new 1.5-litre will come with a manual and automatic gearbox options from launch.
The car will get a six-speed manual and an automatic gearbox. The car will also be given a 4WD/AWD system from Tucson. Other than that we could see ABS, EBD, ESP, and Traction Control; all make it to this car. It will get six airbags in it’s top variant and will have other safety features too. The engine will be powerful enough to pull with ease even when the car is completely loaded. The Engine might also get Hybrid technology as an added benefit.
2020 Hyundai Creta 7-seater Design
Dimensions, size, and most exterior elements will increase. Weight will come down. Looking at the ix25 design, the Creta will be a great looking car. It also looks like Hyundai is going for the blown up headlamp configuration like Hector and the Harrier. Weirdly, the car we see here looks very close to the production version with its door handles. The diamond-cut alloy wheels with 18-inch tyres look very attractive. The tailgate of the car also look s very different from the existing one, therefore it gives it a modern feel. Along with that, the car will get the new design of the Hyundai Venue on the frontend.
The design of the Hyundai Creta is also more focussed on the Chinese markets where the brand has made more in-roads. The car is now more in tune with the design of the rest of the Hyundai group line-up. We have seen the same design ideology in the Hyundai Venue. Below is a spy shot of the rear of the car. The car looks great with black accents and a split tail lamp design. The rear bumper is going to get a false scuff plate-like look with the rear fog lamp integrated into it. The black accents on the sides of the rear windshield look nice and give the car a premium touch.
Overall, this car is not only bigger but looks fresher than before. The Hyundai Creta 2020 has now got a cult following in India. The looks of this car resemble the Hyundai Venue a lot and if that is the design inspiration for this car, the look has been executed well.
For the 7-seater version, the car will get an extended overhang, as well as the wheelbase, which will also increase. The interiors will also change accordingly. There will be many changes in the car that will make it more distinctive from the Creta. The car will be less premium in feel and will have a lot less exciting features than the Hyundai Tucson. The car will have better interiors than Creta 5-seater. The car will be made using better materials than the regular Creta, that’s for sure. That car will be made with a better infotainment interface than the regular Creta. The car will have different seats and will come with new upholstery and interior colors. The car has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard. The will get more smart storage solutions too. The third row will get AC vents and an option to recline.
