According to a recent media report, Hyundai Motor Company will launch the facelifted Creta with a new 1.5L turbo petrol engine. Since the current 1.4L does not comply with the impending BS6 Stage II pollution rules, the latest gasoline unit will be a replacement. The new, more stringent regulations will go into effect in April 2023. The car manufacturers must update the vehicles’ hardware and software to comply with the new BS6 II rules. Thus, the new 1.5L turbo petrol engine will be made accessible with the upcoming 2023 Hyundai Creta facelift.
Hyundai’s new 1.5L turbocharged gasoline engine will provide 260Nm of torque and 158bhp (160PS) power. It will be offered with both 6-speed manual and 7-speed DCT transmission choices. The same transmissions are available using the 1.4L turbocharged petrol engine, which produces 242Nm and 138 horsepower. This indicates that the new Creta will have more power and torque than the present model.
The 1.5L gasoline engine with 115 horsepower and the 1.5L turbodiesel with 115 bhp will remain available for the new 2023 Hyundai Creta facelift. According to rumours, the corporation may also release an SUV with a CNG fuel option.
The outside and interior of the new Creta will both see significant improvements, but the vehicle’s overall dimensions will remain the same. Hyundai’s BlueLink-connected car technology, including features like stolen vehicle monitoring, immobilisation, and valet parking mode, will be included in the SUV and a new 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster.
The ADAS (advanced driver assistance system), which provides safety features including adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance help, lane maintenance assistance, and blind spot monitoring, will be one of the primary feature updates.
At the January Delhi Auto Expo, official information about the updated 2023 Hyundai Creta will be available. IndiaCarNews should be followed.
