The product presentation module of the upcoming 2018 Hyundai Creta has been leaked, revealing details about the compact SUV.
As the Asia launch of the 2018 Hyundai Creta is nearing, the product presentation module of the car has been leaked. The product presentation module reveals the variants, features including the new ones and the colours on offer in the facelifted Creta. The compact SUV will be available in a total of five variants – E, E+, S, SX and SX (O) and seven (single-tone) exterior colour options – Polar White, Sleek Silver, Phantom Black, Stardust, Fiery Red, Passion Orange and Marina Blue. Besides, there are two dual-tone colours on offer as well – Polar White with Phantom Black and Passion Orange with Phantom Black.
Starting with the styling, the front fascia gets bi-functional projector headlights with LED DRLs, Hyundai’s signature cascading effect grille and a dual-tone bumper with skid plate. At the sides, there are 17-inch dual-tone diamond-cut alloy wheels (lower variants get either 16-inch steel or alloy wheels). The rear gets revised split tail-lights and a new bumper with newly designed reflectors.
Coming to the interior, the 2018 Hyundai Creta gets a new seat fabric and the AC vents come finished in brighter metallic paint. For the dual tone colours, there is an orange colour interior pack (orange accents on the seats and gear lever). In terms of features, the Creta facelift gets a wearable ‘Smart Key Band’, 6-way power adjustable driver’s seat, electric sunroof, wireless charging and cruise control. These features will be limited to the range-topping SX (O) variant except for the sunroof which will also be offered in the SX automatic trim.
The 2018 Hyundai Creta will continue to draw power from 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines. The compact SUV will also be available in a 1.4-litre diesel engine option. The 1.6-litre oil-burner churns out 128 PS of power and 260 Nm of torque while the 1.6-litre petrol makes 123 PS and 151 Nm. The 1.4-litre diesel produces out 90 PS and 220 Nm. Both the 1.6-litre petrol and diesel powertrains get a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic transmission but the 1.4-litre diesel motor gets only a 6-speed manual gearbox.
