Hyundai is working on a facelifted Creta SUV designed particularly for the Indian market. It is believed that this vehicle will debut at the end of 2023 or in the first quarter of 2024.
According to ACI, Hyundai also intends to introduce a sportier N-Line version of the Creta, similar to the i20 N-Line and Venue N-Line, with cosmetic improvements and minor mechanical modifications. As with the i20 N-Line and Venue N-Line, the Hyundai Creta N-Line is likely to receive some exterior and interior design changes.
In addition to 17-inch machined alloy wheels and N-Line logos on the front grille, fenders, and boot lid, the N-Line edition will have a distinctive bumper, grille inlays, and red and gloss black elements all over the exterior. The inside design of the Creta N-Line will resemble that of the normal model, with the addition of contrast red stitching, metal pedals, and an all-black colour scheme.
Significant improvements are expected to the upcoming Creta facelift , especially in its features. The Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), which has been customised for India, is one of its standout features.
With the addition of the parametric-style grille, the next Creta facelift will present a new design language. The mid-size SUV will also have integrated DRLs built into the grille.
Contemporary and sporty cabin
To further increase uniqueness, the Creta N-Line can also come equipped with a unique multifunctional steering wheel and gear lever. The new 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox that power the Verna and Alcazar will likely be the only ones made available for the Hyundai Creta N-Line.
The engine is anticipated to produce a maximum of 253 Nm of torque and 160 PS of power. The Creta N-Line is capable of minor suspension, steering, and exhaust system modifications, just like other N-Line vehicles. The Volkswagen Taigun GT, Skoda Kushaq 1.5, MG Astor Turbo, as well as the facelifted Kia Seltos, which may get the Creta N-Line’s engine, will be in direct competition with the Hyundai Creta N-Line.
Before the Creta N-Line goes on sale, Hyundai is getting ready to unveil the Exter micro-SUV, which will go up against the Tata Punch and Citroen C3. The new Hyundai Exter, which has style influenced by SUVs and a hatchback’s footprint, will sit below the Venue. The 1.2-liter and 1.0-liter turbocharged petrol engines for the Exter are anticipated for debut.
