If the rugged Hyundai Creta has always been one of the top performing SUVs in the Indian and Chinese markets, and has made strong inroads in our local market as well of late. If you’ve been a fan of this robust beauty up until now, it’s time to get really excited, because the well-loved Creta is about to get a mid-life facelift that is about to launch it to a whole new level.
So, what’s in the cards for the reimagined Creta? Quite a bit! Here are a few of the high notes.
Exciting New Exterior Details
The Creta’s singular looks have always been one of its unique selling points, so motoring enthusiasts can rest assured that the design team did not throw out the baby with the proverbial bathwater in the redesign. It will remain bold and sporty, but benefit from new-generation addition such as bi-functional projector headlamps, a skid plate, smoother hood lines and an imposing Cascade-design front grill. On the rear end, new split tail lamps are also in the cards.
Updated Interior Features
The features lineup will be bolstered with a smart electronic sunroof, a user-friendly wireless charging dock, as well as cruise control and a 6-way power driver seat. Not to mention an array of updated finishes such as soft-touch paint and leatherette on select surfaces. A new touchscreen AVN system with broad handset compatibility and a smart key with fitness tracking capabilities complete the picture. In short, the Creta is about as future-proof as you’re going to get.
Trendsetting Safety Updates
The reimagined Creta is safe as houses with a strong HIVE body structure that increases body stiffness and improves handling. Six airbags, safety belts with a pre-tensioning system, hill assist control, bending lights and an ISOFIX anchor makes it the perfect option for on-the-go professionals and active families alike.
All in all, the reimagined iteration of the Creta is poised to shake things up in the global SUV market. That much is evident from the fact that upwards of 15 000 units were booked within a scant 10 days of its Indian launch.
