Hyundai Creta Knight Edition
Hyundai has launched a new special edition of Creta, called Knight Edition. Prices of Creta Knight Edition will start at Rs 13.35 lakh and go up to Rs 18.02 lakh (both prices are ex-showroom). It is essentially the same Creta with an all-black exterior theme and a few cosmetic enhancements in order to spruce up its overall look.
Apart from an all-black exterior theme, this iteration of the compact C-segment SUV will also be available in dual-tone colours. As far as visual enhancements are concerned, Knight Edition will feature an all-black grille with a glossy finish and red inserts for contrasts.
A similar black gloss finish has also been provided on front and rear skid plates as well as on the door sill garnish. It will ride on 17-inch alloy wheels with a dark metal finish. In addition, front wheels also feature red brake callipers which further amplify the SUV’s sportiness. Gloss black finishes will also be witnessed on Lightning Arc C-pillars, roof rails and alloy wheels.
The most prominent highlight distinguishing the Knight Edition from the rest of the Creta lineup in a ‘Knight’ badging slammed on near the left tail lamp cluster on the tailgate. Inside the cabin, Knight Edition is expected to carry forward an all-black theme of its exterior to its interiors with red accents offering sporty contrast.
