Facelifted Hyundai Creta Looks Like A Mini 2022 Tucson

Apart from cosmetic updates, Hyundai could provide the Creta with some creature comforts that recently debuted in the Alcazar


  • Facelifted Hyundai Creta likely to be revealed by end of this year.
  • Gets a redone grille, new LED DRLs, and headlamps.
  • Could get features like a digital driver display, a 360-degree camera, and blind spot monitoring.
  • Engine options unlikely to be changed.
  • The 1.5-litre petrol motor could be offered with an iMT (clutchless manual).

The facelifted Hyundai Creta has been spotted testing yet again, revealing some of its crucial design elements. By the looks of it, it’s evident that the updated SUV has drawn inspiration from the new 2022 Tucson


The front has been redone, with the sharper-looking grille, new DRLs, and recessed headlamps reminiscent of the Tucson. Overall, the styling is more well-defined compared to the existing model. The alloy wheels on this test mule are exactly the same as the top-spec Creta sold here, but they could be redesigned just in time for production. Though these images don’t reveal the rear end, we think there could be new tail lamps and bumper. 


Inside, the updated Creta will likely borrow some of the Alcazar’s features, including a 10.25-inch digital driver display and a 360-degree camera with blind spot monitoring. The interior colour scheme and upholstery could be done afresh as well. 


Other features that should be retained from the existing model include a 10.25-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, connected car tech, a Bose sound system, a panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats, cruise control, and rear sunshades. 

Passenger safety should be secured by up to six airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, electronic stability control, and a tyre pressure monitoring system. 


The existing 115PS 1.5-litre diesel, 115PS 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol, and 140PS 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engines should be carried forward as they are. However, like the Seltos, Hyundai could take this opportunity to pair the 1.5-litre petrol with a 6-speed clutchless manual transmission (or, as Hyundai calls it, the iMT). 


The wraps should come off the facelifted Creta overseas by the end of 2021. Here in India, we expect the updated SUV to launch sometime in 2022, priced slightly more than the current model, which retails from Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom). It will rekindle its rivalry with the Skoda Kushaq, Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier, MG Hector, and the upcoming VW Taigun.
