Hyundai has revealed its new Creta compact family car at the Auto Expo in India. Here are the details...
A new Hyundai Creta has been revealed and its styling approach is quite different from the outgoing model. The new Creta is due to make landfall in South Africa in Q4 of 2020.
The front-end has changed dramatically and the Creta now wears a bold cascading grille flanked with split LED headlights and unique daytime running light design, and to that of the Hyundai Venue which was recently welcomed to the local market. The grille will be flanked by striking split LED headlights as well as LED taillights. A split taillight design is also seen at the rear and a brushed-aluminium-look skid plate adds some rugged appeal.
Hyundai is ramping up the quality inside the Creta but it remains to be seen if it will get the infotainment screen from the ix25 seen here.
The interior is perhaps the biggest departure from the outgoing model and if the Creta adopts a similar design the Chinese ix25, buyers will be in for a treat. Hyundai is going upmarket inside the Creta with a large, slick 10.25 infotainment touchscreen taking much of the dashboard real estate. Other features include A newly-designed, multi-function flat-bottom steering is also fitted as is a new digital instrument cluster. Other nice features include a panoramic sunroof, ventilated seats and wireless charging.
In terms if engines range of petrol and diesel engines are expected including an 84 kW 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine and an 84 kW 1.5-litre turbodiesel engine. A 1.4-litre turbopetrol engine with 103 kW and 242 Nm is also on the cards (this engine also powers the Kia Seltos). The Creta will be offered with a 6-speed manual or a CVT.
