Take a look at this base-model Hyundai Creta, which has been modified to the sport design elements and creature comforts of the top-end trim.
Hyundai Creta in its second-gen avatar is offered in a total of 5 variants, namely E, EX, S, SX, and SX(O). The prices for the base-spec E (diesel-only) and EX start at Rs. 9.99 lakh. Therefore, most buyers are opting for the base-spec E and EX trims. However, these variants miss out on a lot of equipment. Nevertheless, these trims can be converted to look like the top-spec ones with certain modifications.

Moreover, the tuner has fitted this car with roof rails, door visors, and door mouldings. Since the low-end variants of the Creta come with steel wheels, the modifier has replaced them SX(O) trim’s 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels here.

The same suite is followed on the seats, door pads, and dashboard. Also, the steering wheel now gets controls for the aftermarket 10-inch infotainment unit. The pillars of this Creta are also trimmed with black inserts, thus lending it with a dark-themed interior.
