If you are a bit upset that the base model of 2020 Hyundai Creta doesn’t offer alloy wheels, check out this modified Creta that looks extremely superb with massive aftermarket rims
India’s second-largest automaker, Hyundai revealed the India-spec second-gen Creta at the Auto Expo this year. Subsequently, the 2020 Hyundai Creta went on sale in March and in spite of the tough market conditions, has managed to attain a lot of popularity. In fact, the SUV saw a fair share of success in India as it garnered thousands of bookings amidst the slowdown.
As you may not know, a majority of the 2020 Creta sales comes from lower variants. However, to keep to cost in check, the lower variants of the new-gen car does not offer alloy wheels that make many Creta’s owners attempting to make their car more appealing with aftermarket units. Here’s such an example.
The headlamps with split setup, unique fog lamp housing, large air intake along with skid plate enhance the sportiness quotient of the midsize SUV. Instead of the boring factory-fitted 17-inch rims, this Hyundai Creta base model wears aftermarket multi-spoke alloy wheels with silver brake callipers and rear brake drums.
As part of its design highlights, the Creta base model comes with silver embellishments for the lower parts of the doors, shade guard, smoked LED taillights, grey frame extending till the rear end and more. While most of these styling cues are available on the stock version, the chrome alloy wheels and lower profile rubber do add more flavour to the new model.
Currently, in its stock form, the 2020 Hyundai Creta is priced in the range of Rs 9.99 – 17.20 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Just like its Kia Seltos cousin, the new Creta offers three engine options under the bonnet including 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines as well as a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit. The latter is the most powerful option of the lot here as it can put out 140 PS of max power and 242 Nm of peak torque. The 1.5-litre petrol mill can produce 115 PS/ 144 Nm while the 1.5-litre diesel burner churns out 115 PS / 250 Nm. In India, the Hyundai Creta might have to face a fiercer competition put up by a number of upcoming SUVs from Skoda, Toyota, Ford, Honda, etc. not to mention the existing opponents.
