Here’s how the Hyundai Creta would look like in the performance-oriented N Line avatar.
The 2020 Hyundai Creta has been one of the hottest car launches in India this year. Despite the difficulties caused by the global pandemic and nationwide lockdown as well as the rising competition in the mid-size SUV segment, the Hyundai Creta has managed to redefine its position and becomes the best-selling SUV in India again. The Hyundai Creta is receiving much love and the same will likely to happen to the performance-oriented SUV with the N-Line badge. Our in-house digital illustrator, Shoeb R Kalania has worked on the sportier N Line version of the Creta that looks very aggressive and captivating. Let’s take a look.
One should bear in mind that Hyundai has no plan of introducing the Creta N Line in reality and this is merely a visualization. However, this rendering has given us the first idea of how the Creta N Line would look like if it could make come into real life. At the front, the new grille design of the sportier Creta is obviously straying far from the current regular version. The front bumper has been beefed up a bit and boasts of new air intakes and fog lamps as well. The Creta N Line sees a slew of black-out treatments on the roof panel, ORVMS, front grille, body claddings and alloy wheels. Speak of the alloy wheels, the SUV now comes with a bigger set of wheels that get a sharper and sportier look. The N Line badging looks cool on the front fenders of the vehicle.
For the regular version, the 2020 Hyundai Creta is powered by three engine options including 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine making 115 PS/ 144 Nm, a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine generating 140 PS/ 242 Nm along with a 1.5-litre diesel burner good for 115 PS/ 250 Nm of torque. Both these mills come mated to a 6-speed MT as standard while the petrol unit gets an optional CVT, the diesel mill gets a 6-speed MT and the turbo-petrol motor can be had with a 7-speed DCT unit.
The new Hyundai Creta gets a long list of features that comprise of a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 7-inch TFT colour display for the instrument cluster, Hyundai’s BlueLink connected car tech, a panoramic sunroof, an 8-speaker sound system, smart air purifier with paddle shifters and drive mode select among others.
