Walkaround and Exterior Changes

The 2024 Creta facelift doesn't just undergo minor tweaks; Hyundai has completely overhauled both the front and rear styling. Upfront, a larger grille with parametric details sets the tone, complemented by a new lighting arrangement. The split headlamps feature LED Daytime Running Lamps, sequential indicators, and a light bar above the grille, while the main quad-LED headlamps find their place lower down on the bumper. The front end is further refined with new scuff plates, creating a more harmonious appearance compared to the pre-facelift model.

Similar significant improvements are visible in the rear styling, characterized by a more angular design, full LED tail-lamps, a full-width LED light bar, and a redesigned rear bumper. Despite these enhancements, the profile of the vehicle, apart from the updated alloy wheels, maintains the familiarity of the 2024 model.

Engine Updates

The major mechanical change in the Creta facelift is the introduction of a new 160hp, 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine, replacing the discontinued 140hp, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit. This new engine is exclusively paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The existing 115hp, 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines continue unchanged, offering manual and automatic gearbox options.

Comparative Pricing

While models like the Citroen C3 Aircross and Maruti Grand Vitara start at a lower price point, the top-spec petrol-automatic Creta stands among the more expensive offerings.
