Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) had launched the Creta SUV in 2015. Despite being not a major player in the Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) segment, Hyundai Creta became a runaway success and it is now one of the bestselling SUV in the country. As the SUV will turn three years old soon, Hyundai has line-up a mid-life facelift.
Hyundai India is expected to launch the 2018 Creta by the end of May and bookings are already open for a token amount of Rs 25,000. We have compiled all the information available about the new Creta barring the price.
2018 Hyundai Creta - Design
Spyshots confirm that the 2018 Creta for India will get a new design in line with the model currently on sale in Brazil. The new Hyundai Creta will flaunt a larger and more butch radiator grille with broad and dark colored slates. Reworked headlamps, slim horizontally designed fog lamps and wider skid plate at the tweaked bumper are the other changes up front.
Newly designed 17-inch alloy wheels will be the sole new addition at the sides. Re-arrangement inside the tail lamps and slightly reworked bumper will add freshness at the rear. Top-end variants of the new Creta will get a sunroof. It will be the coolest addition to the SUV and it's not surprising as the cheaper Hyundai Verna sedan gets it.
Hyundai is expected to carry over the current cabin and dashboard in the new mode as well. Minor rearrangements and feature additions are expected. Spy images also confirm that the top-end variants of the new Creta will get a sunroof as well.
New Hyundai Creta - Engine and transmission
The leaked brochure data confirms that the new Creta will carry over the same set of engines. The 90hp—1.4-litre diesel engine, 123hp—1.6-litre petrol engine and 128hp—1.6-litre diesel engine will be offered in manual and automatic transmission options.
