Hyundai is set to launch the Creta facelift in India soon. The crossover has been spotted on many occasions and a product presentation was leaked online as well a few days ago. The Korean crossover has started arriving at the dealership already. These are images of the undisguised Creta facelift spied at a dealer’s yard prior to the official launch.
The facelift primarily involves visual updates to make the Creta appear more upmarket. This includes tweaked projector headlamps with LED DRLs and a front grille that gets Hyundai’s signature ‘Cascading’ style finished in chrome. The dual-tone bumpers get contrasting skid plates as well. The car will ride on dual-tone 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels which look very attractive in the pictures. Apart from that, new LED lights around the fog lamps add to the crossover's style appeal. A new bumper design at the rear with revised tailgate, newly designed taillights and reflectors is also to be expected.
On the inside, the fabric upholstery is all new and the air-con vents will now get a contrasting metallic finish. In the dual-tone models, the contrasting interiors will be colour coordinated. Hyundai will also offer a “Smart Key Band” which was revealed in the leaked presentation. Other features include a six-way electric driver’s seat, electric sunroof in addition to cruise control and wireless charging system. However, the newly added features will be limited to the top-spec SX (O) trim. The updated Creta will be available in five trims – E, E+, S, SX and SX (O). The exterior paint scheme will get seven colour options – Polar White, Sleek Silver, Phantom Black, Stardust, Fiery Red, Passion Orange and Marina Blue. It will also be offered in two dual-tone schemes as well.
Under the hood, things will remain unchanged. So there will the same 1.6-litre petrol, 1.4-litre diesel and the 1.6-litre diesel engine options. The six-speed automatic transmission will only be offered with the 1.6-litre units whereas the six-speed manual will be standard. Bookings have already commenced across the dealership and the official launch is expected next week. According to the leaked presentation, the Creta will be priced between Rs. 9.47 lakhs and Rs. 15.07 lakhs (ex-showroom).
