Hyundai Creta is set to receive a generation change soon, and the next generation of the SUV is expected to be better in all regards- it will be sharper-looking, more comfortable, and will be better equipped as well. Ahead of the launch of the new model, which will take place on 17th this month, Hyundai has already begun production of the new generation SUV.
New-generation Hyundai Creta - production begins in India
The 2020 Hyundai Creta will feature a completely new exterior as well as interior design as compared to the current model. Even the engines will be all-new, BSVI compliant petrol and diesel motors. The outgoing, first-generation model used to be the best-selling SUV in its segment up till the advent of its cousin, this Kia Seltos. Now, with the new model, Hyundai aims to reclaim that spot in the Indian market.
The first engine option is a 1.5-litre petrol that generates a peak power of 115 PS and peak torque of 144 Nm. It will be offered with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. The second one is a 1.5-litre diesel engine with 115 PS and 250 Nm of max power and max torque, respectively. It will also come paired to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. The third engine is a 1.4-litre with 140PS and 242 Nm on tap. This motor will have a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, although a 6-speed manual might also be offered. All these powertrains options will be borrowed from the Kia Seltos.
The 2020 Hyundai Creta will also feature Hyundai’s latest “BlueLink” connected car technology. Apart from that, the car will also feature a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster. To enhance the safety factor of the SUV, the South Korean carmaker is also offering Auto Crash Notification and SOS/Emergency Assistance feature, which will alert authorities/a nominated person in the event of an accident, apart from the regular crop of ABS, EBD, door-open warning, seatbelt warning, and dual front airbags.
