The upcoming Hyundai Creta will get more features and gets a futuristic design concept. It will also get new engines that are already seen on the Kia Seltos.
With the introduction of two new mid-size SUVs, Kia Seltos and MG Hector, the focus from the mighty Creta has shifted for a while. No doubt, the latter still is the best selling but feels outdated when compared to its rivals. So come 2020, and Hyundai will introduce a next-gen Hyundai Creta that will come with loads of features onboard.
Yes, the 2020 Hyundai Creta will get a tesla like large touchscreen infotainment unit, 360-degree camera, Internet connectivity as some of the features. New spy shots from the Chinese market reveal the interior design of the Hyundai Creta.
The design observed here is minimalistic and follows quite a neat approach with no manual buttons on the dashboard. The large touchscreen also controls the HVAC function and will come equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The interiors of the SUV also reveal the new airplane-styled gear knob which looks futuristic. The car also gets a more compact steering wheel and horizontal AC vents and the fully digital instrument cluster.
The highlights also include a panoramic sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, shark-fin antenna, split LED lights and as said above, it will come with connected features like seen in its younger sibling, Venue.
Dimension wise, the 2020 Hyundai Creta will be 4300 mm in length, 1,790 mm in width and will sit at a height of 1,620 mm. This makes the upcoming model 30 mm longer, 10 mm wider and 8 mm raised height than the present gen Creta.
Mechanically, the new Hyundai Creta will borrow the same 1.5-lite petrol and diesel BS6 Compliant engines from the newly launched Kia Seltos. The petrol motor churns out 115 bhp and 144 Nm of peak torque on tap while the turbocharged diesel engine continues with the same power but torque remains at the higher side at 250 Nm.
There might be a possibility that Hyundai might bring a performance-oriented Creta. The engine onboard will continue to be a 1.4-litre turbo petrol unit which churns out 140 bhp as seen on the Seltos. However, the power figures might see a change. The torque remains at 242 Nm at 1500 rpm.
Once the 2020 Hyundai Creta is launched, the prices for the same will see a little premium over the current-gen. It will compete with the likes of Nissan Kicks, Kia Seltos, MG Hector and Tata Harrier.
