Launched in July 2015, the Creta became a runaway success for Hyundai India. The small SUV still commands a month long waiting period in India. Soon, Hyundai will launch the Creta in Brazil. Hyundai Brasil has released teaser images of the Creta prior to its Sao Paulo debut and, interestingly, the car looks slightly different from the India-spec model. Since the Creta is not even two years old in the market, launching a facelift now seems highly unlikely. However, some are reporting that the Brazil-spec model could become that 2017 Hyundai Creta Facelift for India. The new model Hyundai Creta could come to India by the end of 2017. Here’s more on the possible 2017 Hyundai Creta Facelift.
2017 Hyundai Creta Facelift Exterior and Interior Design
The main talking point of the Brazil-spec 2017 Hyundai Creta is its exterior design. The teaser images seen here depict a new front end. There a new grille that is bigger and more in line with Hyundai’s current design language. The bumper seems new too, with a restyled faux skid plate at the bottom. Also, the vertical fog lamp units have been replaced by horizontal fog lamps. The headlamps with projector units and LED daytime running lights are the same as the current model.
At the back, the new Creta features subtle changes to the tail lights. They get different detailing with the turn indicators and reverse lights now placed below the main stop lamps. Like the front, the rear bumper seems new with a silver finish faux skid plate and new reflector units. Overall, changes made to the upcoming Hyundai Creta facelift will not be very drastic, but should help inject some freshness into the design. That said, the Hyundai Creta is a fairly new product and does not need any immediate updates.
2017 Hyundai Creta Facelift India Launch
|Model||Expected Launch in India|
|2017 Hyundai Creta Facelift India Launch||End 2017-Early 2018|
Again, it is highly unlikely Hyundai will launch a facelift of the Creta anytime soon. However, they could bring the new model Creta to India by the end of 2017. By that time it would have completed around two and a half years on sale in India.
In Brazil, the Hyundai Creta is likely to go on sale in early 2017. It will make its debut at the 2016 Sao Paulo Motor Show in November. Do not expect a Hyundai Creta facelift to come to us before the end 2017. In fact, it is possible that the model seen in pictures here does not come to India at all. India-spec Hyundai Creta facelift could look very different and might be launched in 2018.

The table above is for the current model Hyundai Creta that is on sale right now.

There could be slight changes in the overall fuel efficiency figures, though.

There could be a minor increment in the overall ARAI mileage figures of the Hyundai Creta. It will not come as a surprise if the mileage figures of the 2017 Hyundai Creta facelift remain the same as those of the current Creta.

Apart from minor additions, the Hyundai Creta’s features list should remain more or less the same. It already boasts a strong list of features. Additions might include a sunroof, new alloy wheels, etc. It will also get new tail lights. Hyundai might consider adding some LED detailing to them.
The launch of the Hyundai Creta facelift is pure speculation as of now. The manufacturer has not made any announcements regarding the same. In fact, Hyundai doesn’t need to bring a facelift of the Creta to India anytime soon as the product is still relatively new. However, we will keep you updated if there are any developments regarding the 207 Hyundai Creta Facelift India launch.
