The launch of the Creta facelift is the next big anticipated thing in the C-SUV segment. Hyundai is testing the car in India and also in South Korea. Now a new test mule of the car has been spotted revealing some new details. In today’s article, let’s talk about the Hyundai Creta facelift.
The test mule is camouflaged but does reveal some interesting bits of the SUV. The overall dimension gives a clear hint that this is the Creta. Also, the spied car comes with the codename SU2i on the fender. Hyundai had used the same codename for the current model with “i” referring to “India”.
Coming to the spied details, this spied car comes with a Palisade-like front design and not the Tucson-inspired one. The side profile doesn’t seem to have any major changes, even the alloy wheels are quite similar to the current model. At the rear, there is a new tail lamp design, probably H-shaped tail lamps like the Palisade.
