Here we are comparing the Hyundai Creta Facelift vs Creta Old (current spec) model with each other to see what the latest iteration of this compact SUV is going to offer. We pitch them against each other on the basis of design, interiors, features, specification and everything else.
Hyundai India is expected to launch the 2018 iteration of the Creta compact SUV in India this year. It comes with a wide array of updates, both on the exterior as well as the interiors. In terms of its aesthetics, the new Creta will remain largely identical to the current spec version. However, it will have certain design revisions all along its exterior profile. Inside the cabin, though the layout will remain the same, the updated model will come with new switchgear. According to recent speculations, with this update, Hyundai is going to drop the 1.4-litre diesel engine from the Creta’s line-up. In this report, we are comparing the Hyundai Creta Facelift Vs Creta Old to see what are the major difference between the two.
Hyundai Creta Facelift Vs Creta Old: Design
The overall design of the 2018 Creta remains identical to the current spec model. That said, Hyundai has given some minor tweaks to the new version of this vehicle. For instance, the front fascia of the Creta now comes with a redesigned bumper. It has a slightly more curvaceous design around the edges. Furthermore, the chrome grille also bears a little change. The faux skid plates under the bumper are now more prominent than before. The side profile of the compact SUV is going to remain identical with this update. The only major visual change is the new Diamond cut alloy wheels. From the rear, the Creta Facelift remains similar to the current spec model. However, it too comes with a restyled bumper.
Hyundai Creta Facelift Vs Creta Old: Interiors
Just like the exterior profile of the 2018 Creta, the interiors too remain the same as before. The overall layout of the dashboard and other elements will stay identical, which is nothing to complain about. The cabin will continue to come with a dual-tone colour scheme of black and beige. However, just like the i20 facelift, we can see Hyundai darkening the beige component a bit to prevent soiling.
Hyundai Creta Facelift Vs Creta Old: Features
The biggest alteration, however, is going to be the replacement of the old infotainment system with the new one. This is the same unit which we see on the Elite i20 Facelift.The system is very easy to operate and comes with Apple Car Play and Android Auto Connectivity. It also offers features like satellite navigation and acts as a display for the rear parking camera. Hyundai will also change the knobs and buttons on the centre console and steering wheel to further improve the cabin’s over quality. Furthermore, Hyundai is likely to introduce a rear-seat armrest in the top-spec versions. Not only this, but the Creta Facelift is going to get a sunroof as well.
Hyundai Creta Facelift Vs Creta Old: Engine Specifications
|Power||121 BHP||126 BHP|
|Torque||151 Nm||269 Nm|

It is likely that the engine specifications of the new Creta remain identical to the current spec model. Currently, the Hyundai Creta is available with a choice of two diesel (1.4-litre and 1.6-litre) and one petrol (1.6-litre) engine. According to some recent media reports, it is likely that Hyundai will discontinue the 1.4-litre diesel from Creta line-up with this update. Talking about these engines, the 1.6-litre VTVT petrol engine produces 121 BHP along with 151 Nm of peak torque. While the 1.6-litre U2 CRDi oil-burner is good for 126 BHP and 269 Nm of peak torque. The compact SUV is going to get a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard across the range. While a 6-speed automatic gearbox will also make it to both the petrol and diesel line-ups.
Hyundai Creta Facelift Vs Creta Old: Prices
|Expected Price||INR 9.2 lakh to INR 14.5 lakh|
The prices of the new Creta are likely to remain the same as before. The base petrol variant of the current spec model of the Creta retails at INR 9.29 lakh. While the top-spec diesel automatic variant goes for 14.60 lakh.
