  • The 2020 Creta gets a completely revamped exterior styling in line with Hyundai’s new ‘Sensuous 2.0’ design theme.
  • Inside, the 2020 Creta is expected to get a large Tesla-esque vertical touchscreen infotainment screen.
  • It is expected to borrow the Kia Seltos’ BS6-compliant 1.5-litre diesel and petrol engines.
  • Hyundai is expected to launch the all-new Creta in India by mid-2020.

Korean giant Hyundai has started working on the next-gen Creta. Spied testing in Salem, Tamil Nadu, the 2020 Creta will be based on the iX25 SUV that was unveiled at the 2019 Auto Shanghai. And interestingly, it might come in two seating configurations: a 5-seater and 7-seater.  

The 2020 Creta gets revamped styling to keep it in line with the manufacturer’s latest Sensuous 2.0 design theme. New split headlamps and the huge cascading grille dominate the front end. In profile, the glass house seems similar to the current model and the test mule was seen wearing single-tone 10-spoke alloy wheels. And while the rear end was heavily camouflaged, based on the iX25, we expect it to get split rear tail lamps.

 

We haven’t gotten a peek at the interior yet, but expect it to be similar to the iX25 with its Tesla-esque touchscreen. The feature list could include Hyundai’s BlueLink connected car technology with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, climate control, cruise control, sunroof, in-built navigation, multi-info display as well as an electric parking brake with auto hold function. We also expect safety features like six airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability program and traction control as well as front and rear parking sensors to be present.  

Under the hood, the 2020 Hyundai Creta will most likely ditch the 1.6-litre CRDi diesel and 1.6-litre VTVT petrol units found in the current model. Instead, it is expected to be powered by the Kia Seltos’ BS6-compliant 1.5-litre petrol and diesel units. The petrol unit develops 115PS and 144Nm while the diesel engine churns out 115PS and 250Nm. Both are expected to come with a 6-speed manual as standard. However, the petrol motor could get a CVT option while the diesel is likely to be offered with a 6-speed torque convertor just like the Seltos.  

The 2020 Creta is expected to launch in India by mid-2020. Expect a premium over the current model, which retails from Rs 9.60 lakh to Rs 15.65 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). When launched, the 2020 Creta will renew its rivalry with the Tata Harrier, MG Hector, Mahindra XUV500 and take on the upcoming Kia Seltos as well.
