At the January Delhi Auto Expo, the updated 2023 Hyundai Creta will premiere in India. Although the exact date of its introduction has yet to be set, it is anticipated to occur in the middle of 2023. It will face some new competition from the Maruti Grand Vitara and the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder. With their new models that will join the road in the following couple of years, automakers like Tata Motors, Honda Cars India, and Mahindra & Mahindra also intend to threaten Creta’s hegemony in the mid-size SUV category.
The exterior has undergone significant alterations. The new Creta sports a significantly updated front fascia with the brand’s new parametric grille, which resembles the new Tucson. The grille covers its entire width. The headlamps, which now resemble rectangles more than previously, have been moved significantly to the lower side of the bumper. The rear part has undergone revisions with sharper taillamps that are joined by a plastic panel and have two vertical creases. It also receives a brand-new boot lid and rear bumper.
ADAS Safety Tech
The new Creta has an ADAS (advanced driver assistance system) installed, which incorporates functions like adaptive cruise control, lane keeps assist, rear cross-traffic collision, autonomous emergency braking with forward collision avoidance, blind spot monitor, and more. However, the top-end trim will be the only one to include the ADAS package.
Although the new Hyundai Creta facelift has a comparable dashboard to the current model, it sports a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster from the Alcazar. With enhanced safety features like a valet parking mode, stolen vehicle tracking, and immobilisation, the SUV is equipped with the most recent version of Hyundai’s BlueLink connected car technology.
The 1.5L, 4-cylinder normally aspirated petrol, 1.4L turbo petrol, and 1.5L diesel engine options will remain available in the new 2023 Hyundai Creta facelift. There will be a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed torque converter automatic, a 7-speed DCT, a CVT, and an iMT transmission available. There are several rumours that the redesigned Creta model selection may also come with a CNG fuel option.
