The contemporary Creta has polarising looks. With the facelift, it looks much more modern.
Top highlights are Tucson inspired front grille, new headlamp design, updated front and rear bumpers, sporty character lines on rear section and departure of high mount stop lamp, earlier resulting in somehow connected tail lamp setup, to its originial position.
Black inserts inside the cabin will pave way for piano black finish (same like Alcazar) which is surely going to amp the luxury quotient. Instrument cluster unit is also a direct lift from its 7-seater version while ambient light, this time around, will have configurations upto 64 colours.
