Since its debut in July 2015, the Hyundai Creta has made a significant impact on the Indian automotive market. After undergoing a generational shift in 2020 and receiving various minor revisions and variant alterations, the Creta is now poised for a major overhaul. Although production of the new model is expected to commence in January, the official launch is slated for February 2024. Numerous spy shots and videos of the 2024 Hyundai Creta facelift have already emerged, providing intriguing insights.
Hyundai Creta Facelift Interior
The latest set of visuals offers a glimpse of the interior of the Hyundai Creta facelift. They even confirm the presence of ADAS sensors and a front camera that enables a 360-degree view. The Creta’s ADAS suite should enhance the safety quotient through features like automated emergency braking system, blind spot monitoring with collision avoidance, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and high beam assist.
Furthermore, there is a possibility that the new Hyundai Creta facelift will incorporate a fully digital 10.25-inch driver’s display, akin to the updated Seltos. The extensive list of features encompasses USB Type-C chargers for rear-seat passengers, a premium Bose sound system, automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging, keyless entry with push-button start, a tire pressure monitoring system, electronic stability control, a comprehensive airbag system, parking sensors, and more.

Changes in Styling and Specs
The upcoming facelift of the Hyundai Creta promises significant cosmetic changes, taking design inspiration from the global-spec Hyundai Palisade SUV. Notably, the front end will undergo a complete overhaul with a fresh grille, vertically oriented split-pattern headlamps, a revised bumper, and distinctive H-shaped LED DRLs reminiscent of the Exter micro SUV. While the alloy wheel design may remain consistent, there’s a possibility of larger 18-inch wheels, similar to those on the Alcazar. The rear bumper is also slated for an update, and the redesigned tailgate will provide the Creta with a rejuvenated appearance from the rear.
Regarding its powertrain, the 2024 Hyundai Creta facelift will incorporate the 1.5L turbo petrol engine from the Verna, delivering 160bhp. Buyers can expect both manual and 7-speed DCT gearboxes as options. Furthermore, the existing 115bhp 1.5L naturally aspirated petrol and 115bhp 1.5L diesel engines will remain available.
