India-spec Hyundai Creta facelift leaked

Updated Creta will come with a sunroof and cosmetic tweaks; expected to launch in May 2018.
After months of speculation and testing, the Hyundai Creta facelift for India has been snapped undisguised. Hyundai has been testing the Creta in India for a few months now and is expected to launch the SUV in May 2018.
The refreshed Creta will get styling similar to that seen on the South American-spec SUV. The model spied in India, likely being used for a TV commercial shoot, wears a two-tone paint job, which means the top-spec trims could get this option. The refreshed Creta appears to get a larger hexagonal grille with a thick chrome surround, which merges with the chunky new front bumper that sports creases and has separate housings for the fog lamps. Also new is a thick black chin that further enhances the SUV's muscular appearance.
At the rear, the Creta facelift comes with a slightly redesigned bumper, and there are chances it'll get mildly tweaked tail-lamps with LED inserts as well.
Another crucial addition will be that of a sunroof, again mostly on the top-end model. This inclusion is to meet the growing demand for the feature across car segments. A sunroof, for instance, is a key differentiator on the Honda WR-V cross-hatch.
As far as engines go, the Creta is likely to continue with the current set of engines, including the 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel units. Hyundai dealers haven't revealed any information about the updated Creta, but we expect bookings to commence by the end of this month.
