- The front grille, LED DRLs and recessed headlamps look inspired by the Tucson.
- Different alloy wheels and tweaked tail lamp setup is expected.
- The cabin might look similar, but we could see a different upholstery and features like a 360-degree camera and the 10.25inch driver display.
- 1.5-litre diesel, 1.5-litre naturally inspired petrol and 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine options could be on offer.
- The price tag is likely to start from Rs. 10.50 lakh (ex-showroom).
Hyundai has released a design sketch of the midlife refresh. It is all set to give the SUV Creta in Indonesia. The Creta is ready to roar more towards its larger sibling, the Tuscon 2022, in terms of design.
By the design, we can tell you some of these will make it to the true model. The major change is at the front, which comes with a slatted grille, LED DRLs, and recessed headlights inspired by the new Tucson. While the rear taillights look similar to the present model, the upper half has been tweaked, with no bar running along with the tailgate compared to the pre-facelift Creta.
Going by the cabin design sketch, the makeover Creta may glimpse unchanged inside. But we can find the change in upholstery options, and a few features adopted from the Alcazar such as the 10.25-inch digital driver display, and a 360-degree camera with blind monitoring. It also comes with a 10.25-inch infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, the Bose sound system.
In India, the makeover of Creta is likely to be left mechanically unchanged, retaining the 115PS 1.5 litre diesel, 115PS 1.5 litre naturally petrol, and 140PS 1.4 litre turbo-petrol engine choices. We could have Hyundai’s plonk in the 6-speed clutchless manual transmission to the 1.5-litre petrol like Kia did with its Seltos.
Expect the makeover Hyundai Creta to debut in Indonesia towards the end of this year and reach India in 2022. While the facelifted Creta currently retails from Rs. 10.16 lakh to Rs. 17.87 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), prices for the upgraded version start at a slight premium.
