Hyundai is expected to launch the updated Creta on May 22, 2018. While dealer training sessions are still underway, we’ve got our hands on a complete feature list that tells us what's new on the upcoming Creta facelift.
What’s new on the outside?
The Creta facelift will be identifiable by its larger hexagonal grille that is in line with Hyundai’s latest styling theme. The grille, with a thick chrome surround, flows into the headlights that will carry on unchanged. The new chunky front bumper also sports creases and has separate housings for the fog lamps. Also new is a thick black chin that adds muscle to the look. At the rear, it gets a slightly redesigned bumper.
The Creta facelift will be available in both, single- and dual-tone colour options. The single tone options will include White, Passion Orange, Black, Silver, Stardust, Marina Blue and Fire Red, while dual-tone colours will include White with black, and Orange with black.
What engines and gearboxes will the Hyundai Creta facelift come with?
The refreshed Creta will continue to be sold with the 90hp, 1.4-litre diesel, the 123hp, 1.6-litre petrol and 128hp, 1.6-litre diesel engine, like the outgoing model. The 1.4 will be available solely with a manual gearbox, while the 1.6 units will continue to get the option of manual and automatic gearboxes. No mechanical changes are expected on the SUV.
The variant breakup is as follows:
Hyundai Creta 1.4 diesel MT: E+ and S variant
Hyundai Creta 1.6 petrol MT: E, E+, SX, SX (dual tone), SX(O)
The updated Creta will share the dashboard with the current model. However, the variants of the Creta facelift will get a rejig. Like the outgoing Creta, all variants of the facelifted model will get dual airbags and ABS as standard.
