3 Upcoming Versions of New Hyundai Creta
Hyundai Creta EV
We have reported spotting the Creta EV as a test mule on multiple occasions. Notably, the electric version of the Hyundai Creta is expected to make its debut in 2024, adopting the body design of the new Creta available in international markets. There are expectations that it will feature unique elements to distinguish it from the standard model, possibly incorporating the powertrain from the Kona Electric, which has encountered sales challenges in India. The Creta EV could potentially serve as a viable replacement.
There are reports circulating online regarding the new powertrain. In the international markets, the entry-level Kona electric comes with a 45 kWh battery pack. It comes from LG Chem. This powers an electric motor to generate a decent 138 hp and 255 Nm of peak power and torque. Therefore, the Creta EV could boast this powertrain. For more details, we shall have to wait a bit longer.

Hyundai Creta N-Line
The Korean auto giant is betting big on its performance-focused N-Line portfolio in India. Having sold over 10,000 units under the N-Line moniker in 2023, it aims to offer more products to Indian customers. As a result, the Creta N-Line will add to the i20 N-Line and Venue N-Line for our market. There will be aesthetic enhancements for this trim including N-Line-specific red inserts and insignias, an all-black theme, N-Line specific gear lever, a steering wheel and upholstery with red stitching and more.
Talking about the powertrain option, we expect it to carry the powerful 1.5-litre TGDi turbo petrol mill. It churns out an impressive 160 PS and 253 Nm of peak power and torque. The top trim in the regular Creta lineup also comes with this engine. There could be the option of choosing between a 7-speed DCT or a 6-speed manual even though the latter is unavailable with the regular Creta at the moment. Some mechanical enhancements like steering calibration, suspension tuning, and sporty exhaust would contribute to the overall driving dynamics. Expect a slight premium in terms of the pricing over the regular 1.5-litre mode.

Finally, we will also witness the 7-seat version of the Creta, the Alcazar in a new avatar soon. The facelift version of Alcazar could make its way into our market by mid-2024. Since it is based on the Creta and the Creta has just received a facelift, the Alcazar will also bear exterior and interior changes accordingly. We don’t expect any changes to the powertrain. However, it will be interesting to see if there are some modifications to the front and rear profiles to set it apart from the regular Creta. Even the current model has a different tail section. These are the top 3 upcoming versions of the new Hyundai Creta.
