Hyundai Creta 2018 Overview
Hyundai Motors is all set to launch facelift edition of its popular Creta SUV in India early next year. The Creta 2018 has already been displayed at Chengdu Auto Show in China and expected to make its Indian debut in 2018. Just so you know, Creta is one of the best-selling models from the stable of South Korean automaker and it sells close to 8000 units per month with the cumulative sales standing at over 2 lakh units since its Inception. The Creta facelift is expected to have a number of Cosmetic changes including the nip and tuck job on the bumpers, new hexagonal Chrome slatted grill, redesigned fog lamps, LED daytime running lamps (DRLs), modified tail lamp graphics, and sporty dual exhaust. Hyundai can also customize some of the design elements according to taste and preference of Indian buyers but that will be evident only at the time of new Creta’s launch.
Interiors too will go under transformation and Hyundai could very well further up the ante in terms of quality and stitching job. Still, we don’t expect the overall layout and design to feature any drastic transformation. The dimensional integrity of the Creta 2018 hasn’t been changed, so the legroom, headroom, and knee room will essentially remain to be the same. Hyundai is unlikely to change the set of petrol and diesel engines doing the duty Under the Hood of current generation Creta. This means you will continue to get a 1.4-liter diesel engine mated to 6-speed manual gearbox and bigger 1.6-liter diesel engine featuring both 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission. On the petrol front, 1.6-liter gasoline engine made with a 6-speed manual as well as a 6-speed automatic will be the de facto choice available for the buyers. In terms of comfort and convenience, the new Creta will feature automatic climate control with dust and pollen filter, steering mounted audio and telephonic controls, electrically foldable outside rear view Mirrors (ORVMs), and cruise control. Besides, there will be a touchscreen infotainment system boasting host of the features such as navigation, CD and radio playback, USB support, auxiliary input, and Bluetooth compatibility. In term of price, facelift Creta will cost slightly more than its current version. In Indian market, Hyundai Creta 2018 is competing against the likes of Jeep compass, Maruti Suzuki S-cross, Mahindra XUV 5oo, Renault Duster, and Honda BR-V. In addition, the facelift Hyundai Creta will also take on the newly launched Renault Captur and Mahindra’s upcoming SUV codenamed S201. The official prices of new Creta facelift range will be out once it gets Indian market launch which is expected to happen immediately after the 2018 Indian Auto Expo.
