This is the Hyundai Creta for Brazil (Creta facelift)



As Trump calls White House his new home, a new Hyundai Creta calls Brazil its new home. Just unveiled at the 2016 Sao Paulo Auto Show, this is the South American-spec Hyundai Creta that we’ve only seen in teasers till date. As expected, it’s a face-lifted Creta with a new face and updated bumper-work. The fascia gets yet another iteration of Hyundai’s ‘Cascading grille’ that debuted on the i30 premium hatchback, while the front and rear bumpers get softer contours. The interiors get tanned leather lookalike upholstery, a refreshed instrument cluster, along an updated infotainment system that now supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

In Brazil, the Hyundai Creta will be available with a choice of two engines –  1.6-litre and 2.0-litre flex-fuel units, with the former producing 130 hp and 162 Nm of torque, while the latter being rated at 166 hp and 202 Nm of torque. That 1.6-litre engine will be available with a choice of manual and automatic transmissions, while the 2.0-litre engine will be exclusively mated to an automatic transmission. The Brazilian-spec Hyundai Creta is built in Piracicaba, Sao Paulo alongside the Hyundai HB20 and will go on sale in January 2017. This model also previews the India-spec Hyundai Creta facelift that’ll come sometime next year.
