Hyundai Creta facelift spied in India
Hyundai will carry the facelift version of the Creta in India soon, and the car has been spotted testing India for the first time. Hyundai has already launched the compact SUV in the international markets, and the Indian launch is expected to happen in next year. It is an important car for Hyundai as it takes on the extremely competitive segment and is the best-selling vehicle in the segment. Hyundai first launched the Creta in 2015, and since then it has only received a minor interior update. The spy image taken from the rear does not reveal many details about the vehicle, but we believe that the changes will be along the lines of the international face lifted design of the vehicle.
The exterior changes include a new front cascade grille, new bumpers and cladding all around the vehicle. The vehicle carries an alike outline of the present vehicle, but the changes make it look quite fresh and imposing than the current model. With the new changes, the Creta is expected to attract even more buyers as Indian market love the SUV-ish looks.
On the inside, we can assume a better infotainment system alongside colour changes to the dashboard. The Creta looks quite updated to the market standards even after a long time of launch so we can expect minimal changes to the interiors with the updated model. There isn’t any information about the transmission and engines as of now, but the new Creta is expected to carry the same engines and drivetrain options like the current car. The Creta is currently being offered with four engine options. There are two slighter 1.4-litre petrol and diesel engine options while high-performance enthusiasts can also opt for higher powered 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engine options.
Creta gets AWD system in the international models, but it is not expected in India as it raises the cost by a huge difference. We can expect an Auto Expo showcase of the car while the launch will happen late in 2018.
