The major departure from the current model will be the interior cabin, which will be highly premium and exquisite. It will have a single tone all-black leather upholstery and leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel with audio and phone controls. The center console will house a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Navigation functions. Other features will include a 360-degree parking camera, automatic climate control system, wireless charging facility, heated and ventilated seats, multiple airbags, HUD, digital instrumentation and electric sunroof. Expect the 2020 Creta to give a great fight to the likes of MG Hector and Kia Seltos.
The 2020 Hyundai Creta has been spotted as a test mule multiple times on Indian roads, while it is based on the China-spec ix25 which had its world premiere at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show earlier this year. The front fascia flaunts split headlamps, cascading grille with chrome, LED DRLs and bumper housing the horizontal fog lamp units. The SUV also features a faux skid plate at the front and rear, squared wheel arches and body cladding on both sides while riding on newly-designed alloy wheels. The rear end boasts of a split C-shaped LED tail lamp cluster, rear spoiler, and diffuser. Underpinning the same architecture as its sister rival Kia Seltos, it will get the BS 6 versions of Hyundai's 1.5L petrol and diesel engines.
