New Hyundai Creta will get a sporty variant with a turbo-petrol engine and 7-speed DCT. It has been recently spotted at a Hyundai dealership and here are the pictures of its interior.
The 2020 Hyundai Creta was revealed to the masses for the first time at the 2020 Auto Expo. The manufacturer also revealed the car’s interior digitally a few days back. Today, we have with us the live pictures of the car’s interior, which give a lot more information than the official images. The pictures are clicked at a Hyundai dealership, further confirming the car has started reaching the dealerships now. Scheduled for a launch on 17 March 2020, bookings for the new Creta are open at Hyundai dealerships across the country.
The Turbo variant of the Creta will also get paddle shifters, which is something that the Seltos misses out on.
The pictures here reveal the new 2020 Hyundai Creta will get a sporty trim just like the Seltos GT-Line. Compared to the cabin seen in the recent batch of images, the official images released recently showed the car’s interior done in a shade of beige and black. The car in pictures gets its dashboard finished in black and red accents all around. It can be seen that the car gets stitching done in contrast red colour and the suite is followed on the seats and AC vents as well.
However, this dashboard layout is a lot different than that of the Seltos GT-Line and the IX-25(China-Spec Creta). The Seltos gets a unibody layout, where the instrument cluster and the infotainment screen are housed in one single binnacle, while they are seen in different housings in the new Creta. The infotainment screen is housed in the dashboard on the new Creta, whereas, it is a fully-floating affair on the Seltos, while the IX25 gets it infotainment screen mounted in portrait style like the Tesla. The steering wheels on these 3 cars are also different from each other, but it is the IX25 that gets a pentagonal boss-pad in comparison to the circular unit seen on the new Creta and Seltos. The new Creta also gets an air-purifier with an AQI display on the front-centre armrest, like the Seltos.
The parts and bits inside the Creta seem to be shared with the Seltos as it gets a similar 10.25-inch touchscreen as the Seltos, and the buttons on the centre console also appear to be a direct lift from the Seltos. But our favourite bit from the car’s cockpit is the red-stitching and the paddle shifter on the steering wheel.
This sportier trim of the Creta is expected to come with a 1.4L turbocharged petrol motor that would churn out a peak power output of 140 PS and 242 Nm max. torque. It will come mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The other engines options on the Creta would include a 1.5L N/A petrol and a 1.5L turbo-diesel. These engines will belt out a rated power output of 115 PS, while torque outputs are 144 Nm and 250Nm for the petrol and diesel motor, respectively.
