  • 2020 Hyundai Creta officially revealed.

  • Radically different styling, especially for the nose.

  • More features like  LCD instrumentation.

  • Will share the driveline with the Kia Seltos.

The upcoming Hyundai Creta has been officially revealed, and as expected, it shows a leap ahead in styling and features, as befits a new generation. The ix25 (its name for the Chinese market) was revealed at the 2019 Chengdu Auto Show, it is likely to go on sale in time for deliveries as the new financial year begins in 2020.

The 2020 Creta takes a radically different approach to styling. The nose now consists of a bold, large grille with a faux skid plate at the bottom of the bumper. The headlamps are split units as is the norm with today’s cars, in the same vein as the Tata Harrier. Interestingly, it follows a very similar split for the tail lamps as well. The design has a lot of details but lacks cohesiveness. The alloy wheels are very good looking, though, taking the ‘diamond cut’ philosophy a step further. Inside, it gets a flat-bottomed multifunction steering wheel, an LCD instrument cluster, a ‘cascading’ centre console that has a massive vertical touchscreen that eliminates the need for audio and HVAC controls.

The new Creta will be powered by the same three engines that power the Kia Seltos, a petrol and a diesel displacing 1.5 litre, and 1.4-litre turbo petrol with direct injection. All three will offer a six-speed manual or an automatic gearbox, but the naturally aspirated petrol will be packed with a CVT, the diesel with a torque converter, and the turbo-petrol with a dual-clutch DCT automatic. The larger dimensions of the new generation Creta means that a seven-seat version is an option, and is being worked upon. 

Expect a launch in the first quarter of 2020, with deliveries beginning in April. The Creta competes in the midsize SUV segment with the Kia Seltos, MG Hector, and Renault Duster
