New Hyundai Creta launch on March 17

Following its debut at Auto Expo 2020, Hyundai India will launch the all-new Creta in India on March 17. The second-generation SUV gets revamped exteriors and interiors, along with BS6-compliant engine options. 

Hyundai has gone bold with the new Creta’s exterior design. It gets the brand’s 'cascading' front grille, along with a split-headlamp setup that features LED light clusters and DRLs. The bumper is all-new and so is the faux skid plate.

At the side, the slightly squared-out wheel arches lend it a muscular stance and dual-tone alloys look attractive too. The split-light setup has also been carried over to the tail-lights, a design feature that is sure to divide opinion.

A faux skid plate is also present at the back. 

The touchscreen will be landscape-oriented (the iX25 has a portrait layout), and, as a result, the central air-con vents have been repositioned.

It’s expected to get features like BlueLink connected-car tech, a panoramic sunroof, wireless charging, automatic climate control and cooled seats.

The new Creta is expected to share its engine and gearbox options with the Kia Seltos. There’s a 115hp, 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine that is likely to be available with 6-speed manual and CVT automatic gearbox options, along with a 115hp, 1.5-litre turbo-diesel unit that can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or torque converter automatic gearbox.
