  • 2020 Hyundai Creta will be based on new-gen ix25. 
  • Both SUVs will share interior styling. 
  • Under the hood, the 2020 Hyundai Creta will get 1.5L petrol and diesel engines.

Hyundai has previewed the all-new ix25 SUV at the ongoing 2019 Shanghai Auto Show. The ix25 sold in China is retailed under Creta nameplate in India, which is set to get a generation change soon.  According to reports, the next-gen Creta will share underpinnings and running gear with the second-generation ix25. For those not in the know, the existing models of both the SUVs are also based on the same platform. 

Hyundai Venue Official Design Sketches Released

Going by images, the second-generation Hyundai ix25 will receive copious aesthetic changes. Most of the changes have been made to the front as it gets more rounded and bulky face with cues borrowed from Hyundai Palisade, which was lately revealed in the U.S. The front features elements such as split headlamps with sleek LED daytime running lights on top of it and the main headlamp placed on the lower bumper. The front grille gets a chrome surround and aluminium skid plates add to the overall muscular look.

At the side, it features alloy wheels reminiscent of the ones seen in Hyundai Venue and squared off wheel arches. Just like headlamps, the tail lamps too get split set up with LED units. Talking in visual terms, the India-spec second-gen Hyundai Creta will differentiate with ix25. However, both the SUVs will share interior styling and possibly some features. That said, the second-gen Hyundai ix25 sports black-beige colour scheme and a dash-mounted infotainment system with a large touchscreen that meets seamlessly with the centre console.

Save for the start/stop button, the dash gets no physical buttons. The model previewed at Shanghai features cooled seats and an automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. Also seen are an electronic brake and a ‘terrain Mode’ button on the centre console, which implies that new Creta could get an off-roading driving mode. Under the hood, the 2020 Hyundai Creta is estimated to get 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines. Hyundai will launch the new Creta in five and seven-seat configurations, with the India-spec model coming out in 2020. In terms of competition, the 2020 Hyundai Creta will take on the likes of Renault Captur, Nissan Kicks, Volkswagen T-Cross and Tata Harrier among others.
