Powering new Creta will be the same engines that can be seen on Kia Seltos. It may be recalled that all Kia Seltos engines were BS6 compliant from day one. There’s a 1.5-litre petrol that churns out 115bhp / 145Nm and a 1.4-litre turbo petrol that makes 140bhp / 242Nm. The 1.5-litre diesel unit is capable of delivering 115bhp of max power and 250Nm of max torque. Transmission options will also be same as Seltos that offers manual, automatic and DSG transmission.
Speaking about the design updates, at the front, we can see a new 3D cascading grille that seamlessly connects to the triple LED headlights and sleek LED DRLs. Other key features include prominent front and rear skid plates, all-body cladding, dual-tone colour, blacked out pillars, contrasting roof rails, LED high mount stop lamp, and 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels.
Talking about the interiors, new Creta features a plush cabin, which looks spacious and clutter-free. The central console immediately grabs your attention, featuring a fluidic, futuristic design. The entire section comes across as a single unit, running from the top of the dashboard and extending all the way to the gear lever and central utility space located below the armrest. The central console accommodates key components such as AC vents, a large touchscreen infotainment system, and rotary climate control dials. Side AC vents have been vertically mounted, which is another distinctive feature of new Creta.
Second-gen Hyundai Creta also comes with a new multi-function steering wheel. It looks similar to that of other Hyundai cars such as 2020 Hyundai Sonata and the company’s new flagship Hyundai Grandeur. Other additions include an all-digital instrument panel that displays a lot more information in comparison to its predecessor. A panoramic sunroof option can also be introduced in new Creta. Boot space seems adequate for everyday use.
2020 Creta is expected to retail in the range of Rs 10 to Rs 17 lakh (ex-showroom). It will compete with rivals such as MG Hector, Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, Renault Duster, Mahindra XUV500, Jeep Compass, and Tata Harrier. Creta was the top selling SUV in its class, but lost to newly launched Kia Seltos. The newest model will certainly like to take that lead back.
