Hyundai Creta Key Highlights
We have seen enough content revealing ins and outs of 2020 Hyundai Creta on the web. But nothing concrete was available, till now, to confirm the features on offer across the variant. This document, which is a scanned copy of the product brochure, has it all covered. We will not dive much into details as this, being a typical Hyundai, is loaded upto brim with features and penning down everything on a blog is next to impossible.
The 2020 Hyundai Creta will come with signature Hyundai cascading grille up front with loads of chrome. The tri-beam LED headlight setup is surrounded by the quirky Crescent Glow LED DRLs, as company likes to call it. This Hyundai will ride on 17-inch diamond-cut alloys. Apart from alloys, key highlight of the side profile is puddle lamps on auto-folding ORVMs and Lightening arch C-pillar. Lightening arch C-pillar is nothing but contrast coloured treatment running from the top of A-pillar to extending completely over the C-pillar. Tail end will have light in sync with headlight design and twin-tip chrome exhaust (only on turbo petrol model).
We all would easily agree on the fact that interiors of Creta are plush and pleasing to eyes. Highlights of the same start with ventilated seats up front and two-step reclining rear seat. To take care of the purity of air inside the cabin, an air purifier is employed in driver armrest with a touch screen controller. The panoramic sunroof will ensure ample light in the cabin during the day, the blue ambient lighting will light up the nights. Electronic parking brake and auto hold control switch is available between front two seats, replacing the handbrake lever. Further, the cabin will have leather treatment all around, scuff plates, wireless charger, 8-way power-adjustable driver seat and rear sun-blinds.
Blue Link with 50+ Features
While Blue Link connectivity was introduced in Hyundai Venue first, its big brother Creta will take it to the next level. Blue Link will work with mobile app as well as on smart watch app, adding additional mobility to the overall experience. Challenging the MG Hector’s USP, Blue Link will also be able to open sunroof with voice command starting with ‘Hello Bluelink!’. But the trigger word could have been better with more human touch to it. The app could start or stop the engine as well as air purifier remotely. Geo-fencing, live tracking, remote lockdown and remote health monitoring are few more interesting features of the system. A music system on the top-spec car will be Bose tuned unit.
You all might be already knowing that 2020 Hyundai Creta will be powered by three engines. Namely, the 1.5 liter naturally aspirated MPi petrol, 1.4 turbocharged gasoline direction injection and the 1.5 liter U2 CRDi engine. Both 1.5 liter engines produce identical power of around 115 PS and the 1.4 T-GDi engine will produce 140 PS. Depending upon the engine, there will be three manual gearboxes and three automatic gearboxes on offer. The most premium offering will come with 1.4. turbo motor mated to 7 speed Dual Clutch Transmission. This combo will come with, first in segment, paddle shifters too. Along with Eco, Sport and Comfort drive modes Creta will have selectable traction control system with Snow, Sand and Mud modes.
Giving importance to safety, Hyundai is equipping Creta with ABS with EBD, dual airbags as standard across the range. Top of the range Creta will have six airbags, disc brakes all around, tyre pressure monitoring system, hill hold control and vehicle stability management system.
Variant Spread and Colours
The 2020 Hyundai Creta will come draped in total 7 shades, but turbo variants will get only 3 of them. Total 14 variants will be on offer. Unlike the current generation, this time Hyundai is offering automatic transmission on top of the line variants. Also, this time feature spread across the variants is even too. Base variant EX gets all the essential safety kit and comes with basic creature comforts.
