Hyundai Creta is the best selling compact SUV in the Indian market and the second-gen Creta is about to receive a facelift in the global markets. Ahead of the GIIAS, 2021 Hyundai Creta facelift images have been leaked, revealing all the details about the upcoming facelift.
2021 Hyundai Creta Facelift Images
Hyundai Creta facelift takes big inspiration from the fourth-gen Tucson, at least from the front. The cascading grille with triangular elements merges seamlessly with the LED DRLs whereas the main headlights are fitted lower down on the bumper. The headlight casing features twin LED projectors and fog lights, all in one single unit. What makes the Creta different from the Tucson is the upright stance and also the prominent use of brushed silver elements around the grille and lower bumper.
Coming to the side profile, the changes are scare and even the alloy wheels are the same we get in the top-spec Creta in the Indian market. On the rear, Hyundai has tweaked the boot lid design to make it stand apart. In addition to that, the LED taillights now extend to the boot with a small LED element whereas the sharp creases descent on the numberplate to give it an inverted stance.
Coming to the interiors of the 2021 Hyundai Creta Facelift, the changes are scarce. One evident change is the addition of the fully-digital instrument cluster, that we get in the Alcazar. It is a crispier unit with a lot of different screen layouts. However, the touchscreen unit seen on the images is an 8-inch unit whereas we get the bigger and better 10.25-inch unit on the India-spec Creta. What’s going to be the highlight of the upcoming Creta facelift is the ADAS capabilities that include features like auto emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.
Coming to the engine options, we are expecting the Creta facelift to carry on with the same set of engines in the Indian market. Shedding some light on the engine options, the Creta comes with 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol, 1.5-litre diesel and 1.4-litre T-GDi petrol engine options. All the engines are offered with automatic transmission options whereas the 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options can also be had with a 6-speed manual.
The India launch of the Creta facelift is not expected before 2022 as the Creta is still fresh in our market. Once launched, it will give tough days to other compact SUVs like the Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Tiguan, Skoda Kushaq and Nissan Kicks.
