Hyundai Motor India Ltd has just released the first design sketches of the 2024 Hyundai Creta. The mid-cycle facelift for the country’s most popular compact SUV debuts on January 16. These digital renderings follow a set of spy shots that leaked online recently. It’s noteworthy that the India-spec Creta facelift misses out on the Tucson-like facade of the global version. Instead, it features a more butch fascia in alignment with the carmaker’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ theme. In fact, its front-end even reminds us of the 2024 Palisade.
