New Hyundai Creta will get revamped exteriors, interiors and under the hood it will feature a new engine for both petrol and diesel spec.
Hyundai Creta was first launched in 2015 and became an instant success in the Indian market. Now with the competition rising, a new Hyundai Creta is in the pipeline and its just not the cosmetic changes which will take place but the SUV will sport a new engine too.
New Hyundai Creta will discontinue the 1.4 and 1.6-litre diesel engine and 1.6-litre petrol engine. What’s in the store is new 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine which will churn out 115 bhp each. These same engines are available in the Kia Seltos and are BS-VI compliant.
Kia Motors is a subsidiary of Hyundai and it’s no surprise that the upcoming Hyundai and Verna Facelift will use the same engines, seen on Seltos. Kia also provides a 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine which makes 140 bhp and a peak torque of 172 Nm. This engine gets 7-speed DCT gearbox and is likely to make its way to the Creta.
New Hyundai Creta exterior deign will be totally revamped as it borrows some design elements from the recently launched, Venue. The large cascading grille with split headlight design is the first. What’s new is that the split deisgn can also be followed on the rear profile of the car.
Furthermore, talking about the interiors it will sport a new dashboard design along with a new steering wheel. A large 10.25-inc touchscreen infotainment system from the Seltos can be borrowed and it will support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as connectivity features. Also, the HVAC can be controlled from the screen itself.
Some features like a 360-degree camera, Voice command, ambient lighting, dual zone climate control, power adjustable driver’s seat are some of the features we can expect from the new Hyundai Creta. Also, rain sensing wipers and auto headlamps which can be seen on Seltos can come into place.
The current Hyundai Creta offers Six Airbags, ABS with EBD, Seat Belt Reminders, ESP, Rear Parking Sensors, Reverse Camera, ISOFIX mount child seats and Speed Sensing Door Lock as some of the safety features. The new gen may make way for front parking sensors, brake assist system, traction control and among others.
New Hyundai Creta will be bigger in dimensions and will be more premium than the current model. That said, it will come in a 5-seat layout first followed by a 7-seat layout. It will compete against the likes of Tata Harrier, Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Renault Captur and Mahindra XUV500.
