Hyundai is set to start the new generation of the Creta at India on March 17, 2020. The car made its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo and at the time we only got to see exactly what it looked like from the exterior. In terms of design, the new Creta is unquestionably a few notches higher than its predecessor. The tailgate is sculpted with sharp lines and the rear number plate housing has transferred. There’s obviously, the touch cascading grille which is flanked by DRLs and the LED lamps may be identifiable. Additionally, the next-gen Creta has increased in dimensions but retains the general curvy shape.
So far as engine choices go, another gen Hyundai Creta will possess the same powertrains as the Kia Seltos. Thus, expect a BS6 compliant stove – a 1.5-litre gasoline and 1.5-litre diesel, in addition to the 140 bhp, 1.4-litre turbo GDI gas having a optional 7-Speed DCT (double-clutch transmission). The three motor types will come with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
On the features front, there will be a lot more on offer. The new-gen Hyundai Creta currently gets a slightly bigger screen too. The display will observe a layout in portrait mode and will also pair up with Hyundai’s Blue Link connected automobile app and telematics option. The brand new Creta will get an eSIM or embedded sim card to get all information features such as emergency response and concierge services.
2020 Hyundai Creta Review – Interior Features
The India-spec 2020 Hyundai Creta interior will keep a strong resemblance to the Hyundai ix25 with minor tweaks. The compact SUV is expected to be outfitted with a huge 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which contributes to a smaller amount of switches on the vehicle’s dashboard since the majority of the functions will be implemented through this touchscreen system.
Especially, Hyundai’s most unique selling point, the Blue Link system is going to be carried over to the new Creta. It supplies 33 innovative functions, 10 of which are specifically developed for India. The machine comes with remote start/stop, remote lock/unlock, remote climate control and a find-my-car function, etc.. What’s more, the Creta will also receive live car monitoring, speed awake and geo-fencing, which may all be controlled through an application which is connected to the SUV.
2020 Hyundai Creta Review – Specs
The powertrains of this Kia Seltos are also adopted to your new Hyundai Creta. This implies that the latter is expected to get its electricity from a 1.5-litre petrol motor along with a 1.5-liter turbo diesel unit, both of which will obey the BS-VI emission standards.
Nevertheless, the highlight in the powertrains of this new Creta is it will get its power from a BSVI-compliant 1.4-liter turbo gasoline burner, like the unit which is offered on the Seltos GT Line. A mild-hybrid option is also likely to be released on the Hyundai Creta in India
The BSVI-compliant engines can help the Southern automaker conserve lots of upgrade expenses. Moreover, its stage will be borrowed from the Kia Seltos, which will lead to a considerable reduction in the costs. Considering each of the following factors, we can anticipate the 2020 Hyundai Creta cost to be similar or even lower than the outgoing model.
The stiff competition in the compact SUV segment is expected to continue in the long run.
