Hyundai has taken the wraps off the second-generation Creta at Auto Expo 2020 in India ahead of the newcomer’s expected launch in South Africa later in the year.
Now the second-generation version (sharing much with the Hyundai ix25 revealed in China in 2019) has officially shown its face, with a local launch pencilled in for the final quarter of 2020.
In terms of exterior styling, the new version looks markedly different to its forebear, adopting an intricate split-headlamp arrangement (like its smaller Venue sibling) and a fresh interpretation of the Korean firm’s signature cascading grille.
Round back on this Indian-spec model, you’ll find distinctive new LED taillamps, a fresh tailgate design (with centrally arranged “Creta” lettering) and even a cheeky roof spoiler. The profile, meanwhile, is dominated by dual-tone 17-inch alloys and silver trim that extends from above the doors to cover the C-pillar.
While Hyundai has yet to show off the cabin of the new Creta, it has confirmed a new multifunctional steering wheel and the fitment (in India, at least) of automatic climate control.
The engine line-up has also not yet been announced, although media in India speculate the new Creta will borrow powerplants from its Kia Seltos cousin.
