South Korean carmaker Hyundai is busy readying its upcoming new Creta facelift for the Indian market and test mules of the SUV in its new avatar are already on the public roads, going through rigorous testing. The new Creta has been snapped dozens of times. And now, a fleet of the new avatar undergoing testing in Tamil Nadu has been caught on camera.
The new Creta is expected to be part of Hyundai's pavilion at the upcoming Auto Expo in February 2018, with a launch expected to fall sometime next year. The new images shared by MotorVikatan throws light on the changes made to the Creta SUV in its new avatar.
While the test mule of the new Creta facelift for the Indian market shows changes in line-with the facelifted Creta unveiled in Brazil and in China, the new fog lamps on the Creta look different from the international spec model.
The images also show the new Hexagonal three-slat grille with chrome lining and the updated front bumper. The test mules spotted also showed the newly designed five-spoke alloy wheels, enhancing the appearance of the side profile of the SUV.
The layout of the interior is expected to be untouched. The SUV will flaunt an engine start/stop button, keyless entry, rear-parking sensors and automatic aircon.
It is also expected to include an infotainment system with a 7-inch display integrated for GPS, MP3 Player, player photos and videos, USB and auxiliary. The 2018 Creta is expected to be powered by the same three engines of the current models — 1.6 VTVT petrol, 1.4 CRDi diesel and 1.6 CRDi diesel.
