It’s no secret that Hyundai has been working on an updated version of its best-selling SUV, the Creta, which is scheduled to arrive in the Indian car market towards the end of this year. The facelifted Hyundai Creta has already been spied on a few occasions in heavily camouflaged forms, which have hinted at some elements of the upcoming SUV. Meanwhile, someone on the internet has uploaded a digital rendering image of the Hyundai Creta N-Line facelift, showcasing a redesigned version of the Creta.
The digital rendering was uploaded on Instagram by an account named “malvinwsetiawan,” and it depicts a Hyundai Creta facelift with a significantly redesigned front profile. In the rendering, the Creta boasts an all-new front fascia, featuring a new grille that appears to be inspired by the new-generation Hyundai SUVs and even the Lamborghini Urus.
Above the massive trapezoidal grille, which covers most of the central area of the front bumper, the lower bonnet of the Creta here sports a long daytime running LED bar, similar to the all-new Hyundai Verna launched in India a few months ago. The corners of this daytime running LED bar also include additional sleek strips that resemble LED lights for turn indicators.
Inspired by new Verna
The corners of the front bumper in this digital rendering of the Hyundai Creta facelift feature large trapezoidal housings, which house split-designed LED headlamps at the top and horizontal air dams below them. The heavily reworked front fascia of this digital rendering of the Creta also incorporates a front splitter, adding a touch of sportiness to the front profile. Meanwhile, the rear profile of this Creta rendering remains unchanged, except for a new design for the larger alloy wheels.
It should be noted that this is a digital rendering by a personal artist and not the version Hyundai has planned for the Indian car market. The facelifted Creta is expected to feature a new design language in line with Hyundai’s recent products, such as the Exter sub-compact SUV and the globally available Santa Fe.
Hyundai is expected to make adjustments to the front and rear profiles of the exterior, while also introducing a new cabin layout with more features on board, similar to the updates seen in the facelifted Kia Seltos. Additionally, the facelifted Creta will retain the current 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol and diesel engines and will also receive the new 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine from the Verna.
