More images of the Hyundai Creta show what appears to be the range-topping SX(O) variant (above & below). Indians are smitten by chrome, and Hyundai is leaving no stone unturned to feed them all the shine that can possibly be mustered up. The Creta SX(O)’s front fog lamp bezels and faux intakes at the back get generous chrome surrounds, while even the tail lamps are not spared from being surrounded with thin borders of chrome.
Over the SX, the SX (O) also adds 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels that are borrowed from the ix25 sold in international markets. Inside, the (O) adds a touch screen infotainment system and a push button start feature. So far, the Creta has been seen draped in five exterior colours – red, white, silver, black and bluish grey.
Apart from the aforementioned SX (O), the Creta will be made available in three other variants (officially unconfirmed):
The Base variant will be will get features like central locking, fold-able key, dual horn, engine immobiliser, body coloured bumpers and mirror caps, tachometer, gear shift indicator and a 2-DIN music system. It’ll skimp out on projector headlamps/DRLs, and will feature standard halogen illumination instead. Steel wheels with wheel caps are also a possibility on the base variant.
The S variant adds Bluetooth connectivity, steering mounted controls, 1GB internal memory, height adjustable driver seat, micro antenna, driver air-bag, reverse parking sensors, speed sensing door lock, ABS, 16-inch alloy wheels, along with projector lamps with DRLs and cornering lamps.
Over the S, the SX variant gets reverse parking camera in the ECM (Electro-chromatic mirror), dual air-bags, leather gear knob and steering wheel, parking sensors and a lane change indicator.
Styled with Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy, the Creta will be the Korean manufacturer’s first crack at India’s rapidly growing compact SUV segment. The Creta will be rivalling the Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano, Ford EcoSport, and the upcoming Maruti Suzuki S-Cross.
The Creta is expected to be powered by the familiar, Verna sourced 1.4- and 1.6-liter CRDi diesel engines paired to a 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions, along with the 1.6-liter VTVT petrol engine paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
