The new Hyundai Creta will be launched as a 5 seater initially, while the 7 seater Creta will be launched at a later date. It will make its India debut at the 2020 Auto Expo in February.
But ahead of that, the car has made its debut in China, at the recent Auto Show. Seen with a new design, 2020 Hyundai Creta features a completely new front and rear profile. Interiors too have been completely changed. The car is now longer and wider than before, this has allowed for more space on the inside, especially for rear passengers.
Seeing by the response of probably buyers and enthusiasts, most have liked the new interiors. Exterior design has not found that much appreciation. The reason could be the radical styling of headlights, which now sit below the bonnet lip. Take a look at the detailed walkaround video below.
On the side there are new dual tone alloys, same as the are also seen on the 2020 Hyundai Verna sedan – which also made its debut at the same show. The side profile has more creases than before and a thicker C pillar. The enhanced floating roofline gives the SUV’s rear a coupe like stance. The rear seems much bulkier as compared to today. Front and rear tail light are similar in shape.
On the inside, dashboard features two large hexagonal shaped AC vents positioned in the center, a large touchscreen infotainment system placed below the AC vents which complies with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and is with SIM based connectivity features.
The gear lever seems to be inspired by Audi, and next to it is the placement for drive modes. There is also the presence of ventilated front seats, panoramic sunroof, bigger and more comfortable seats, 360 degree camera view, etc.
2020 Creta dimensions will stand at 4,300mm length making it around 30mm longer than its outgoing counterpart. It will also measure 1,790mm wide and 1,622mm tall making it 10mm wider and 8 mm lower than its predecessor. These are the same dimensions to be seen on the India spec Creta, though it could get more ground clearance.
In India, the Hyundai Creta will get powered by three engine options. The 1.5 liter petrol will produce 115 PS power and 144 Nm torque while the 1.4 liter turbocharged petrol unit will offer 140 PS power and 242 Nm torque. The 1.5 liter diesel engine will be capable of 115 PS power and 250 Nm torque. There will be 4 gearbox options to include 6 speed manual, a CVT, 7 speed DCT and 6 speed torque converter AUTO. All engines will be BS VI compliant.
Already spied on test in India, the new Creta will rival the Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Tata Harrier, Nissan Kicks and Renault Captur. Take a look at the latest photos of the new Creta below.
