2018 Hyundai Creta, or more often called by the name Creta facelift, was spotted few days back without any camouflage. It was said that Hyundai Creta was present for TVC shoot at that venue.
A recent report in automotive segment claims that few Hyundai dealers have started accepting bookings (unofficially) for the updated Creta in India. The launch event for 2018 Creta will happen within May 2018 and thus, Hyundai could even announce official bookings in next few days.
Hyundai Dealers from Delhi and Pune claim that deliveries will start in June 2018 while unofficial booking amount is INR 25,000. 2018 Creta comes with hexagonal front grill, redesigned fog lamp section and revised front and rear bumpers. Skid plate is now offered with black treatment while new alloy wheel design suits the SUV character in even prominent manner.
Creta facelift carries an updated interior with new infotainment system, premium upholstery and sunroof on top spec variants. These changes are enough to push segment rivals even lower when it comes to monthly sales. Creta is the highest selling car of its segment and more than that, it has passed many popular hatchbacks and compact SUVs in overall numbers.
Engines on offer will include the more and less powerful petrol as well as diesel units. Hyundai could start the car from an even lower point if they use their popular 1.4L petrol engine on their new Creta. As they did on Verna, this move can prove good for buyers looking into petrol version with more mileage.
1.6L diesel will be most powerful among all, producing 128 PS at 4000 rpm and 260 Nm at 1900-2750 rpm. Smaller 1.4L diesel is good for 90 PS and 220 Nm of torque. Powerful 1.6L petrol motor is good for 123 PS and 151 Nm while smaller 1.4L petrol (if offered) will be good for 100 PS and 132 Nm.
