Hyundai Creta N Line
Hyundai is going to diversify its N Line lineup with the Creta N Line. The Creta N Line has been spotted in the AD shoot hinting that the launch is just around the corner. It comes with a new grille, new 18-inch alloy wheels, thick side skirts and more. Under the hood, it will come with a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine. Being a N Line model, don’t expect any changes in the power figures. However, for enthusiasts, we could see a manual gearbox along with a DCT option. Hyundai could give it a sportier suspension, louder exhaust and better handling like it does with other N Line models. In the interiors, expect red stitching and some added features. The Creta N Line is expected to be launched by February or March 2024.
Upcoming sporty cars – Tata Altroz Racer
The Altroz Racer is back in the news as Tata showcased the car at the Bharat Mobility Show. Recently, an Altroz test mule was spotted with an emission testing kit, hinting that the Racer edition could become reality soon. Unlike the Creta N Line, the Altroz Racer comes with a much more powerful 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine under its hood. This is the same engine that powers the Nexon. Along with that, the Racer edition also comes with subtle interior and exterior changes. Feature-wise, it is expected to come with ventilated seats, 6 airbags, reverse parking sensors and a 10-inch infotainment system. The Altroz Racer is expected to be launched by mid-2024.
