The Hyundai Creta is due for a facelift and the updated model has been spotted doing the rounds in India. This will be the first major update for Hyundai’s D-segment SUV since its launch here in 2015 and the changes made will be entirely cosmetic.
Since the Creta is based on the on the Chinese spec ix25, it is likely to get the same updates. This list includes a new grille, design for the alloy wheels as well as rear bumper. We have spoken in detail about the updates in this story which you can read about here.
Since this is Hyundai, we can expect a bigger touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, additional storage spaces and possibly four airbags as standard fitment. Oddly enough, the top spec Creta still lacks a distance-to-empty meter as well as cruise control. We expect these options to be added to the list. Mechanically, there are expected to be no changes to the car. The current drivetrains – a 1.6-litre petrol, 1.6-litre diesel and 1.4-litre diesel - are all expected to retained from the current car.
We had expected Hyundai to showcase the Creta facelift at the 2018 Auto Expo but, given its importance in their hierarchy, we believe a mid-2018 debut is more likely.
