Hyundai launched the 2018 Creta facelift earlier this year. The new Hyundai Creta not only came in with exterior and interior updates but also in a new price range. Offered in four trims, the new Hyundai Creta 2018 facelift is priced between Rs 9.43 – 15.03 lakhs as compared to the older version which was priced between Rs 9.29 – 14.59 lakhs.
Now most owners of the old Hyundai Creta would be eyeing the changes seen on the new variant with some envy. We have here a video showing off how one can transform the old Hyundai Creta to ape the facelift version at a cost of just Rs 16,000.
It is clearly evident from the video how the front end gets modified. The front bumper is made up of three parts. Changes can be made to these parts by just affixing the new bumper to the hooks of the pre-facelift model at a cost of Rs 1,500 per piece while painting is an additional Rs 1,500. These changes are restricted to just two parts which are painted silver to exactly match the rest of the body color.
It is seen from the video that there is no difference in the shade of silver. The third part of the front end is painted black and sees no change. The next change to make the old Hyundai Creta look like the facelift version are the fog lamps. Watch the detailed video below.
These are the most expensive part of the makeover costing Rs 5,000 a piece. The grille also gets modified at Rs 1,500 taking total to Rs 16,000 while it would take some extra charges to get these pieces fitted.
The video shows the rear of the Hyundai Creta which sees no change. The sides sport chrome handles while interiors show off a black and beige color scheme on seats, side door panels and head rests. Though the Hyundai Creta facelift sports some added features such as a larger infotainment screen and wireless mobile charger, these features cannot be retrofitted but can be sought as accessories as aftermarket fitments. There have been no changes made to the engine. In this case it is the 1.6 liter diesel engine generating 128 PS.
