    Listen to this Article

    In just two months since the launch of the facelifted Creta, Hyundai will be adding the much-anticipated Creta N Line variant to its line-up. Hyundai will announce prices for the Creta N Line on March 11, and bookings are expected to commence by the end of this month. Leaked patent images and spy pictures have already hinted at the updated design: there will be minor tweaks on the inside and it will also get a new powertrain option not available with the regular Creta.

    Hyundai Creta N Line powertrain options

    Under the hood, the Creta N Line will carry over the 160hp, 253Nm, 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine from the regular Creta, but will additionally be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The 7-speed DCT gearbox will be carried over as is. Powertrain aside, expect a retuned suspension setup and revised steering along with a sportier exhaust, just like other N Line models.

    Hyundai Creta N Line exterior and interior

    The Creta N Line will come with a thoroughly reworked design to mark it out as the sportier variant. Up front, it will have an all-new bumper with a slimmer grille, more angular cuts, wider air inlets and a bull bar-like element on the lower portion. The headlamps and LED DRL arrangement, however, will remain unchanged.

    In profile, the Creta N Line will have pronounced side skirts with red accents, N Line badging and larger 18-inch wheels boasting a new design. At the rear, there will be a larger roof-mounted spoiler, a sportier bumper with a prominent diffuser and dual exhaust tips. Also new on the Creta N Line will be two new colour options – blue and matte grey.

    On the inside, we do not expect any changes to the dashboard or the equipment list, but expect an all-black finish as opposed to the dual-tone grey-black finish on the regular Creta. Other updates are likely to include an N Line-specific steering wheel and gear lever, metal pedals and red accents.

    Upon launch, the Creta N Line will not have any direct rival in the midsize SUV class, but some other special edition variants in this segment include the Kia Seltos X Line and the Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo. Expect a markup of about Rs 50,000 for the N Line variant over the regular Creta.
