We’re less than 3 months shy before this year ends, and a new year begins. Hyundai recently announced it’ll be bringing ADAS to its affordable cars – Exter, Grand i10 Nios, and Aura. The ADAS will be similar to the one’s offered in the Venue SUV.
Hyundai Creta Facelift (Expected: Early 2024)
The Hyundai Creta Facelift was spotted recently and a youtuber made a whole walkaround of the SUV. Hyundai is skipping the facelift update and going directly for the next-gen version. The video revealed so many details like the SUV will come with 360 Surround View Camera, Camera and Radar based Level 2 ADAS, and design inspiration taken directly from the Palisade that is sold overseas. The bumpers of the SUV are updated, the tailgate has been redesigned and looks similar to the Venue, and dawns an H-shaped LED DRLs like the Exter SUV. Additionally, the SUV gets a split unit vertical LED headlamp design and cube like detailing, and updated front grille.
The spy shots while revealed that the 17-inch alloy wheel design is the same as the outgoing version, there has been other test mules spotted with larger 18-inch alloy wheels. Moving to the interiors, it was fully covered, but still from what it looks like, it’ll sport dual 10.25-inch displays similar to the new-gen Verna, and no other major change is expected although new shades for the seat upholstery is expected. As for the engine options, the facelift will be getting the new 1.5 L 4 Cylinder Turbo Petrol Engine that generates 157.81 BHP and 253 NM of torque mated to 6 Speed Manual, and 7 Speed DCT Gearbox. It’ll also continue to offer the 1.5 L naturally-aspirated petrol engine, and the 1.5 L Diesel Engine.
Lastly, it already comes with features like ventilated seats, 8-way powered adjustable driver seat, wireless charging, ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof and so much more. We now know it’ll get 360 Surround View Camera with front and rear parking sensors, and Level 2 ADAS with features same as the 2023 Hyundai Verna such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring System, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Warning, Auto High Beam Assist, and many more.
We expect Hyundai to add new features like Heated Seats, and Powered Seats for Co-Passenger and launch the Creta facelift in early 2024 as it rivals the Kia Seltos, Honda Elevate, Maruti Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, MG Astor, and Citroen C3 Aircross.
