Even though the Hyundai Creta received a mid-cycle makeover in many international markets, the carmaker is working on another version specifically for the Indian market
The Hyundai Creta is set to undergo a significant transformation with its mid-life facelift, bringing new features and a design overhaul inspired by the Palisade SUV. Recently, a handful of spy pictures from South Korea gave us a glimpse of the updates this highly anticipated version would carry. Now, a fresh set of illustrations from Malvin WS depict the great possibilities the carmaker has to redefine the visual appeal of the hot-seller.

The latest rendering of the Hyundai Creta facelift shows the SUV in a heavily transformed avatar. There are significant changes at the front as well as the rear. In line with the carmaker’s latest design theme, the Creta has a LED light bar connecting the hood-level LED DRLs, thereby giving it a very modern appearance. But the piece de résistance here has to be the new bumper with massive air intakes. While the artist has imagined the N-Line version, even a slightly toned down version of the bumper would bestow the regular model with a decidedly sport appearance. Even the rendering for the rear suggests significant changes to the design. The rear gets new LED taillights with a lighting signature similar to the latest Venue. Akin to the front, even the rear gets a pretty sporty bumper.
Inside, the upcoming Creta facelift should come with a range of modern features. The interior theme may embrace a dark color scheme to create a premium ambiance. Many of the existing features will carry over from the current model, including a multifunctional four-spoke steering wheel, front seat ventilation, wireless charging, BlueLink connectivity, BOSE audio system, and an electric panoramic sunroof. In terms of safety, all trim levels are likely to include six airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP, and traction control. The top-tier variant is expected to offer a Level-2 Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS).
