Ahead of its launch on March 17th, the interior of the 2020 Hyundai Creta, which was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020, has been revealed through a set of official sketches that show many details of the cabin
We saw the India-spec 2020 Hyundai Creta for the first time ever at the recently concluded Auto Expo 2020. Back then, we showed through our videos that the show car had dark black tints that managed to conceal the interior of the vehicle to a large extent. That said, we did catch a glimpse of the dashboard, which revealed some important details of the cabin. Now, though, the company has revealed the cabin through a set of official sketches.

As seen in the sketches, the cabin of the new-gen Creta will have a dual-tone colour theme, with the dashboard featuring dark grey and beige plastics. This is an arrangement that is already available on the outgoing model. However, the centre aircon vents are horizontally-oriented, while the side vents continue to have a vertical orientation. Moreover, the instrument cluster will have a part-digital layout, while the steering wheel will be an all-new flat-bottom unit that will be also seen on the new i20.
Other details of the cabin include three adjustable headrests for the rear seat and a large centre-armrest for the front occupants. While the exterior of the India-spec 2020 Hyundai Creta mimics the China-spec ix25 to a large extent, the same can’t be said for the interior. Unlike the Chinese model, which has a portrait-style large-screen touch-sensitive infotainment unit, the Indian version gets a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system similar to what is found on the Kia Seltos.
Unlike the Hyundai ix25, the India-spec new-gen Creta won't have a portrait-style touchscreen infotainment unit.
As always, Hyundai is likely to offer a bunch of segment-best features, including bits like a dual-zone climate control unit, e-parking brake, ventilated seats, wireless charging, and more. The SUV will also offer steering-mounted controls for audio and cruise control. All variants will likely offer a chilled glove-compartment, while the part-digital instrument cluster is expected to be available only on the high-end trims. Other features will include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, LED DRLs, dual-tone machined alloy wheels, electric sunroof and more.
The next-gen Hyundai Creta will be sold with three engine options, all of which will come from the Kai Seltos. The 1.5-litre petrol engine outputs 115 PS-144 Nm, while the 1.5-litre diesel motor offers 115 PS- 250 Nm. The third motor will come in the form of a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit that delivers 140 PS-242 Nm. A 6-speed manual transmission will be standard across all engine variants, while there will be an optional automatic transmission on offer.
