The SUV segment in our country is on a roll. And every base has to be covered. Be it producing micro SUVs, making one’s presence felt in the compact SUV segment and also getting into the big mid-size and full size SUV range. Now an emerging segment is the 7-seater SUV. Cars which have five-seater versions in the market but are going to be made available in a bigger version too. We have already seen the upcoming Tata Gravitas and the MG Hector Plus. Now for the first time images have surfaced online of the Creta 7 seater.
Now the Hyundai Creta 7 seater was earlier spotted too testing on international roads. The car seen here gives us a closer look at things. Let’s start with the front – we can see the same LED DRLs that are available on the Creta. This car also gets a bigger bolder grille and a revised bumper. In terms of size the car is clearly longer and the similarities in the glass area between the two cars end. We can also expect new alloy wheels.

At the rear, there is a new revised bumper and new wrap around taillamps that replace the Creta’s sleeker ones. Apart from this, the Creta 7-seater can be expected to come in distinct color options and different trim options.
7-seater Creta interior and engine options
In terms of interior, the car should be the same as the Creta in terms of dashboard design, buttons, fit and finish. It will also get the panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable seat, wireless charging, six-airbags, leatherette seats and BlueLink. Apart from that we expect the car to get 360-degree parking and some extra features to make sure that this car stands away from the regular Creta.

In terms of engine options we expect the car to get the 1.4-litre – 140bhp petrol engine, the 1.5-litre diesel and 1.5-litre petrol – 115bhp mills as well. These engine will come with options of manual and automatic gearboxes.
Launch and price
In terms of pricing it should be close to the Hector Plus and should be here by next year’s festive season. It will rival the upcoming Jeep Compass 7 seater, Gravitas and XUV500. The car will also compete with the Hector Plus.
