In the first quarter of 2024, Hyundai Motor India plans to launch an upgraded Creta, its best-selling mid-size SUV. Since the model’s launch in March 2020, this represents the second generation’s first significant redesign. In the Indian car market, the Creta has ruled supreme, routinely defeating competitors like the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, and Volkswagen.
Since its launch in July 2015, Hyundai has sold about 950,000 Cretas in India, confirming its position as a customer favorite. Several modifications are expected to be made to the 2024 model with the goal of making it more appealing.
Updated LED headlamps, a modified bumper, and a new grille modeled after the Hyundai Tucson are all seen in the spy photos that showcase the car’s significantly improved front appearance. The car’s alloy wheels have also received a stylish update, and its back end now sports new LED taillamps and a redesigned bumper.
A significant redesign of the 2024 Creta’s interior will include new features such an automated climate control system, infotainment system, instrument cluster, and steering wheel. Notably, the new SUV will have advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS), which should improve driver convenience and safety.
The Kia Seltos and the Creta facelift are anticipated to have similar engine options under the hood. A 1.5-liter Turbo-GDi gasoline engine producing 160PS/253Nm, a 1.5-liter NA gasoline engine producing 115PS/144Nm, and a 1.5-liter CRDi VGT diesel engine producing 116PS/250Nm are among them. We may expect having choices for a 6-speed manual, 6-speed intelligent manual, 6-speed intelligent variable, 7-speed dual-clutch, and 6-speed automatic transmission among our transmission options.
The current model ranges in price from Rs 10.87 lakh to Rs 19.20 lakh (ex-showroom), but given all of the changes it is expected to include, the 2024 Creta will probably fetch a higher cost. For those who like Creta, the updated model is quickly approaching and promises an updated appearance, improved functionality, and cutting-edge safety measures.
The Creta has been a best-selling small SUV, handily defeating competitors including the Skoda Kushaq, Maruti Grand Vitara, Toyota HyRyder, Volkswagen Taigun, and Kia Seltos. Given the growing competition from manufacturers such as Honda with the Elevate and Citroen with the C3 AirCross, it is anticipated that the revised model will expand upon the Creta’s sales success.
