2020 Hyundai Creta Design
The design has taken a giant leap in the 2020 Hyundai Creta which now looks more futuristic. Inspired from its bigger Palisade SUV, the Creta gets a new 3D cascading grille flanked by LED headlamps with split LED daytime running lights. Flanked by the fog lamps, the new bumper looks solidly built.
The A and B pillars are blackened to give it a floating roof effect. Body cladding all around and skid plates add an off-road character to the vehicle. The 17-inch diamond-cut alloys look stunning.
The rear too gets plenty of elements to make it interesting. The same LED setup of the headlamp is repeated in the tail lights. A central stop lamp finds a place just below the rear windshield. Redesigned rear bumper, rear spoiler and shark fin antenna lend it an interesting appeal at the back.
