Hyundai India unveiled the 2020 Creta at the 2020 Auto Expo and we all had mixed opinions on its styling. Not far away from the unveiling, rumours suggest the launch of the 2020 Hyundai Creta to happen on 17th March 2020. Dealers have already started taking unofficial bookings.
Creta has been a successful product for the brand until the Kia Seltos arrived which literally dethroned the legacy of the Creta. Kia sold over 15000 units of the Seltos last month. Hyundai has now geared up to Launch the 2020 Creta with a bang. Despite not being the most stylish and flamboyant car in its segment, we expect Creta to bring some unique features at a value for money package.
Talking about the design, it features unconventional U shaped LED DRLs which are divided into three segments and the all-LED headlamp beside them. The big cascading chrome grille takes on the front profile while the fog lamps sit lower down on the bumper. The side profile features silver coloured C and D pillar and 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. The rear profile gets the same U shape designed LED taillights we get on the front. The reverse light sits down on the bumper which also comes with faux silver skid plate.
The interior will be more Indian specific featuring a big horizontally placed touchscreen infotainment system and a sturdy gear lever. More features include a big panoramic sunroof, all-digital instrument cluster, automatic AC, electric parking brake, ventilated seats and wireless charging.
Coming to the engine options, 2020 Hyundai Creta will boast with 3 engine options. A 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 115 Ps and 114 Nm of torque, 1.5-litre diesel producing 115 Ps and 250 Nm of torque and a 1.4-litre T-GDI motor churning out a healthy 140 Ps and 242 Nm of Torque. Same as the Seltos, there will be a slew of transmission options. An IVT gearbox with the 1.5 petrol, 6-speed AT with the 1.5-diesel and a 7-speed DCT with the 1.4 petrol.
Althought we can’t confirm the exact powertrain and gearbox options, these are the most obvious ones as all these engines are already BS6-complaint. Prices may fall in the region of 11 lakhs to 17 lakhs ex-showroom. What is your guess on the pricing? Tell us in the comments below!
