160 PS Hyundai Creta (ix25) launched in China

The Hyundai ix25 (Creta) for the Chinese market has received a new more powerful variant. Powered by the 1.6-litre T-GDI turbocharged direct injection petrol engine, the new ix25 variant has an impressive 160 PS and 250 Nm of torque on tap.

The powerful petrol motor comes paired with Hyundai’s in-house developed 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox which drives the front wheels. An AWD could be offered in the future.

The new variant differentiates itself from the rest of the ix25 lineup by means of chrome accents on the otherwise plasticky front grille, exclusive five twin-spoke alloy wheels and twin exhaust tips which are housed within a silver diffuser.
