The facelifted Hyundai Creta adorns a restyled front fascia with new Cascading grille and sharper LED headlamps. While the overall silhouette has been kept in tact, the new Creta’s design has evolved and it has become sportier than the outgoing model.
However, the major changes come in the form of feature updates and equipment revisions. For instance, the range-topping SX (O) features Smart key band as seen in the recently launched AMT version of the Tata Nexon subcompact SUV. The higher variants gain 17-inch alloy wheels and dual-tone bumpers with skid plates.
The panoramic sunroof option is only available in the range-topping SX AT and SX (O) versions. As for the interior, the 2018 Hyundai Creta comes equipped with wireless charging facility in top-end variants and touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone integration in the SX, SX (Dual) and SX (O) models.
The standard safety kit includes dual airbags and ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) across the range. Height adjustable driver seat and sliding armrest are some of the other notable features. The top-of-the-line SX (O) comprises of six airbags, Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Hill Assist and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) among others.
The entry-level E and E+ grades won’t have rear parking sensors and camera but all other trims do have that feature. The ISOFIX child seat restraint system will only be provided in the automatic-spec SX variants. It will be made available in nine colours: White, Black, Silver, Fiery Red, Passion Orange, Stardust, Marina Blue as well as White/Black and Orange/Black dual-tone options.
The powertrain options are expected to remain the same as the 1.6-litre petrol, 1.4-litre diesel and 1.6-litre diesel will likely continue to be on offer. The petrol unit produces 123 bhp while the lower-level variants get 89 bhp developing 1.4-litre diesel and the 1.6-litre diesel making 126 bhp is reserved for selected variants. A six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic will perform transmission duties.
