Hyundai has launched the facelifted Creta SUV in India starting at INR 9.44 lakh and going all the way up to INR 15.04 lakh. The Creta is available in five trims, three engine options and a choice of two transmissions. The new Creta gets a larger hexagonal grille with chrome, a new front bumper with separate housings for the front fog lamps, and a reworked rear bumper.You now get the option of a dual-tone paint job. Single-tone options include white, orange, black, silver blue and red, while the dual-tone options are white with black, and orange with black. On the inside the dashboard design remains unchanged. However, Hyundai has upgraded the level of kit on each variant, and even the base E trim – which came with safety features like dual-front airbags and ABS – but now gets updated with driver’s seat height adjust and a front sliding armrest.There are 17-inch alloy wheels, projector headlamps, cruise control and the AVN infotainment system with an IPS display, the top-spec SX (O) also comes with a powered sunroof, cruise control, six-way adjustable powered driver’s seat, a smart key band, wireless charging support and six airbags.Nothing has changed under the hood, with the previously available 90hp, 1.4-litre diesel; 123hp, 1.6-litre petrol; and the 128hp, 1.6-litre diesel engines. And just like the outgoing model the 1.4 diesel is mated only to a six-speed manual while the 1.6-litre engines get the option of an automatic gearbox.However, the automatic is not available on the top-spec SX (O) trim, which means buyers of the automatic versions will have to make do without features like the sunroof and wireless charging. The refreshed Hyundai Creta’s rivals remain the same, and consist of the soon to be launched Renault Captur, Maruti S-cross and Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon and Honda BR-V.
