Hyundai Creta Facelift

First up, what’s new. On the outside the Creta facelift gets the Hyundai family cascading grille along with reworked bumpers, headlamp clusters with bi-functional projector headlamps and new LED DRLs. From the side, you now get new 17-inch diamond-cut alloys and at the back is a new bumper, skid plate and new taillights. While the car overall remains the same, the new elements add a bit of aggression to the design which should result in better road presence.

Inside, you get the same interiors. But now, sitting on the dashboard is a 7-inch touchscreen with capacitive touch. It supports Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink with inbuilt navigation among other connectivity options. The talking point though is the electric sunroof, which is available in the SX Automatic variant. Other than that, you now also get 6-way power-adjustable driver seat, cruise control, a new Smart Key Band which has an inbuilt fitness tracker, and a wireless phone charger, which is quite a handy addition. You can also now get a new Tangerine Orange Interior Colour pack with the dual-tone exterior colour option.
