We saw the next-gen Hyundai Creta with a portrait infotainment system at the Shanghai Motor Show but now Hyundai has showcased a second iteration at Creta’s interiors at Chengdu.
Hyundai unveiled the new ix25 – the next-gen Creta – sometime ago at the Shanghai Motor Show. The design of the next-gen Creta (or ix25) is now more in line with the company’s global design language with a split headlamp setup, a large cascading grille up front with an overall rounded and less upright design. We also reported about the next-gen Hyundai Creta having interiors which boasted of a large portrait infotainment screen along with a digital instrument cluster.
Now, Hyundai has revealed a second iteration of the interiors of the next-gen Creta. The Hyundai ix25 that was now showcased at Chengdu, featured absolutely the same exterior design that we saw at the Shanghai Motor Show. However, the interiors were completely changed and were more Kia Seltos-like this time around. But before, take a look at the previous iteration of the next-gen Creta interiors.
The dashboard now featured a landscape-oriented touchscreen as well as the instrument cluster, both of them connected by a large binnacle. The AC vents below the infotainment system were much slimmer than ones shown before and there were also physical AC controls in this iteration of the interiors. And not very surprisingly, it all looks very similar to the ones on the Kia Seltos. The steering wheel seen here is also quite different with four-spokes and a flat bottom.
Further down, the center-console also came completely revised with new switchgear, an electronic parking brake and push-buttons for the automatic gearbox, along with a large, covered storage bin. The ix25 that was displayed at Chengdu also featured a sunroof. The rest of the cabin remained pretty similar though. It is now unclear as to which iteration of the Creta’s interiors would Hyundai bring to India.
Talking about the Creta itself, it will be much bigger in dimensions that the current-gen Creta. It will be 30mm taller, 10mm wider and 8mm lower, with the wheelbase also up by 20mm. Also, it is expected that the India-spec next-gen Creta will be similar to the China spec model in terms of dimensions.
The next-gen Hyundai Creta will be based on the Kia Seltos platform and it will get be offered with BS-VI complaint 1.5 Liter petrol and diesel engines. The 1.4-Liter turbo petrol engine from the Seltos could also be seen on the next-gen Creta. When launched, it will rival against the likes of the Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Tata Harrier, Nissan Kicks and Renault Captur.
