A video that has been uploaded on Youtube shows the making of a digital illustration of a 2020 Hyundai Creta convertible that can rival the VW T-ROC Convertible
The 2020 Hyundai Creta, which is the second generation of the popular compact SUV, went on sale in the country earlier this month at a starting price of Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The new model shares its platform and engine options with the Kia Seltos. It has been designed as per the company's 'Sensuous Sportiness' design theme and looks a lot bolder than the previous iteration. A new video that has been recently uploaded on Youtube shows what the SUV would look like in a convertible format.
As can be seen in the video above, the Hyundai Creta has not just lost its roof but also the rear doors and some more elements, like the skid plates, to complete the 'drop top' look. Not just this, the SUV also features a restyled grille, updated front bumper and new alloy wheels. While a convertible-SUV has a rather unconventional look, the idea of a drop top Creta isn't entirely far-fetched. Volkswagen, the largest carmaker group in the world, launched the T-Roc Convertible earlier this year. Given the fairly positive response that the new model has garnered, it won't be too much to expect a similar model to come from the house of the South Korean carmaker giant.
The 2020 Hyundai Creta is on sale with three engine variants and five trim levels. Also, the SUV is being sold with an automatic transmission for every motor. The base petrol motor is a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated engine that outputs 115PS of maximum power. Even the turbo-diesel engine displaces 1.5-litre and offers identical power figure. The third engine option comes in the form of a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol motor that produces 140PS. The 1.5-litre engines come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission as standard, while the 1.4-litre option comes exclusively with a 7-speed DCT automatic unit. The base petrol engine is also available with an optional CVT, while the oil-burner gets an option of a 6-speed torque-converter automatic unit.
