It is no secret that Hyundai India is working on the second-generation Creta which is expected to be previewed at the 2020 Auto Expo, albeit official launch is likely in March 2020, ahead of the implementation of stricter BS-VI emission norms. According to reports, the 2020 Hyundai Creta could come with e-SIM connectivity akin to its recently launched smaller sibling, Hyundai Venue. Interestingly, the e-SIM will enable performing a number of remote operations.
In visual terms, the new Hyundai Creta will see no change as for the basic design is concerned, however, it will receive key styling tweaks such as redesigned headlamps in front, restyled tail-lamps at the back and a reworked grille. The next-gen Creta will also witness dimensional changes, appearing larger than the current version. This would make the new Hyundai Creta interior more spacious.
Talking of the feature list, the next-gen Creta will pack in additional bits such as an e-SIM, which is likely to be reserved for the top-spec trim. Also, expect a digitalized instrument cluster reminiscent of Kia Seltos and a large 10-25-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
As for the 2020 Hyundai Creta specifications, it will get BS-VI compliant versions of 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines. It is said to share underpinnings with the upcoming Kia Seltos which is expected to launch here sometime next year. The current-gen Hyundai Creta price starts from Rs 10 lakh and goes up to Rs 15.65 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). With styling tweaks and additional features, expect the 2020 Hyundai Creta price to change upwardly, especially the top-spec variants that are likely to cost more than the existing ones. Upon its launch, the SUV will pit against Mahindra XUV500 and Tata Harrier among others.
