Hyundai Creta has cleared the curtain. Now its launch date has been revealed. The new Creta will be launched in the Indian market on 17 March. Its look is quite different from the current model.
The interior of the SUV will also be new. The new Hyundai Creta will get BS6 implant engines. Some major changes have been made to the new Creta’s exterior. The front gets a new bumper with Hyundai’s large cascading grille, split LED headlamp setup with LED DRL and Fox skid plate.
The light square veal arch on the side gives it a muscular look. The new Creta features dual tone alloy wheels, making it attractive. Hyundai has not revealed the new Creta’s interior at the Auto Expo, but it has been clear from the outside that the interior Chinese model Hyundai iX 25 of the new Creta coming to India will be different.
The new Creta will feature 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Car Play, Blue Link connected car technology, wireless charging, automatic climate control and panoramic sunroof. The new Creta is 30 mm longer than the current model, giving it better cabin space than before.
The KIA Celts engines are expected to be found in the new-generation Creta. This means that it will have options for BS6 compliant 1.5-liter petrol, 1.5-liter diesel and 1.4-liter turbo petrol engines. A 6-speed manual gearbox will be standard with all three engines.
