The Hyundai Creta is India’s top-selling C-segment SUV. The car entered its second generation in March 2020. The model has been doing phenomenal in terms of sales for the Korean automaker. Recently, a Creta was spotted doing test runs abroad. With the kind of styling setup that the car is sporting, we can safely assume that the automaker is planning a mid-life update for the Creta in the near future. In this article, we will discuss the key details of the Hyundai Creta facelift that has been spied. Let’s begin.
What information do the spy shots reveal?
Looking at the spy shots, it becomes evident that the Creta facelift will come with a new-generation Tucson-like front fascia that includes a new grille and lighting setup. Similar to Tucson, the LED DRLs on the Creta facelift will blend with the front grille design. Apart from this, even the bumpers and the main headlamp unit are completely new.
What else do we expect from Hyundai Creta facelift?
Since the car will be coming with a Tucson-inspired front fascia, we expect the car to come with a Tucson-inspired split-tail lamp setup as well. The facelift is also expected to get a newly-designed set of alloy wheels. Considering the fact that the in-market Creta is relevantly new and well-equipped on the inside, we do not expect any drastic changes here. However, we can expect a 360-degree camera, blind-view monitor and heads-up display (HUD) as some additions to the SUV’s features list.
Some features will be carried forward from the currently available Creta, like a 7.0-inch instrument cluster, 8-speaker Bose premium sound system, front ventilated seats, power driver’s seat, auto-dimming IRVM, height-adjustable front seatbelt, wireless charger, air purifier, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and ambient lighting, among others.
The Creta facelift will mostly retain the current engines and gearbox options (1.5-litre petrol engine, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine, 1.5-litre diesel engine). The 1.5-litre petrol engine comes mated to a six-speed manual and six-speed CVT automatic gearbox. This unit produces 113bhp and 144Nm of torque. The 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine comes mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox which produces 138bhp and 242Nm of torque. Talking about the diesel engine on offer, the currently available SUV has a 1.5-litre diesel engine which is governed by a six-speed manual and a six-speed torque converter automatic gearbox which produces 113bhp and 250Nm of torque. We expect the facelift to be brought to the country somewhere around next year.
