The second-generation Hyundai Creta debuted to great acclaim at the start of 2020. However, as has always been the case, Hyundai is quick to release updates for its vehicles, and the Creta is no exception. The second-generation Creta has already received its first facelift in Indonesia, and it is expected to arrive on Indian shores in the second half of 2022. On the internet, a walk-around video of the new Hyundai Creta from Indonesia has surfaced. This video shows how the Indian Creta will look after it has been facelifted.
The Hyundai Creta in black shown in DreamWheels’ video is the top-spec variant of the SUV sold in Indonesia. The SUV now has a much bolder and sharper parametric grille with daytime running LEDs integrated into its outer edges on the outside. The headlamps are now slightly lower and appear to be smaller than they were previously. The halogen projector headlamp arrangement shown here will be available in the Indian version of the SUV’s lower and mid-spec variants. The headlamps on the higher-end models will be all-LED.
The 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels on this updated version of the Hyundai Creta now have a new design, which may be carried over to the upcoming Indian version as well. Aside from that, the SUV’s side profile has remained unchanged. The rear profile has been tweaked with the removal of the black strip that runs the length of the boot lid and the addition of redesigned LED tail lamps, both of which will be available in the Indian-spec model.
Cabin remains the same
The video presenter then shows us the interior of the updated Hyundai Creta, which is the Indonesian market’s top-spec version. The instrument console is a straightforward analogue setup with a monotone MIDI in the middle. While this instrument console arrangement will be available in the lower and mid-spec variants, the top-spec variant of the upcoming India-spec model may come with an Alcazar full-TFT console.
In the video, the Creta’s centre console features an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a panel for automatic climate control beneath it. This arrangement is already available in the current Creta’s mid-spec variants, and it will be carried over to the facelifted model as well. In the India-spec model, however, the top-spec variant will get a larger 10.25-inch screen with additional connected car features.
The facelifted Hyundai Creta for India will retain its current lineup of three powertrains – 1.5-litre petrol, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol, and 1.5-litre diesel – with minor visual changes and feature additions.
