  • The headlamps are redesigned with a split-unit vertical design, adding a touch of modernity.
  • The front bumper also gets a sportier update, while the overall silhouette of the Creta remains familiar.

  • The highlight is the inclusion of twin 10.25-inch screens: one for the digital instrument cluster and the other for the infotainment system.
  • The center console gets a revamp, featuring central AC vents and a single band of physical buttons, offering a cleaner and more modern look.
  • The overall material quality and upholstery options are also expected to be improved.

Tech and Feature Enhancements:

  • The biggest highlight is the addition of Level 2 ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) features, offering various safety functionalities like Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and more.
  • The infotainment system gets an update, offering improved connectivity features and potentially new functionalities.
  • Other features like a 360-degree camera, heated and cooled seats, and a panoramic sunroof are expected to be available on higher trims.

Engine Options:

  • The engine options are likely to remain unchanged, offering the familiar 1.5L petrol and 1.5L diesel engines with manual and automatic transmission options.
  • However, the 1.4L turbocharged petrol engine has been replaced with a new 1.5L turbocharged petrol unit to meet the latest BS6 Phase 2 emission norms.

The Hyundai Creta facelift aims to maintain its strong presence in the compact SUV segment by offering a refreshed design, a more feature-rich interior, and the latest safety and technology advancements. Whether these changes are enough to keep it ahead of the competition remains to be seen, but the updated Creta certainly presents a compelling package for potential buyers.
