After showcasing the SUV at the Beijing Auto Show in April last year, Hyundai has finally announced the name of the upcoming global SUV. Hyundai has christened the SUV as “Creta”. The Hyundai Creta will make its India debut next month. Hyundai says the name Creta will be used for all the global markets.
The Hyundai Creta measures 4.27 metres in length. With this length, it won’t qualify for the excise duty benefits which the Ford Ecosport enjoys. The car is likely to be powered by the same engines which perform their duty in the newly launched Verna 4S sedan.
The exterior design of the new Hyundai Creta features the new Hyundai Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, which can be seen on the Hyundai Genesis. The SUV stands tall at 4,270 millimeters in length, 1,780 mm in width and 1,630 mm in height. The frontal portion of the SUV features a hexagonal grille, LED-lined headlamps, large fog light enclosures and a silver faux skid plate. Hyundai may also offer LED DRL’s on the Creta.
Powering the Hyundai Creta will be 1.6 liter petrol and diesel engines. The SUV will also be available with an automatic transmission.
