India will be the launch market for the Creta.

Hyundai Motor India Limited’s (HMIL) website now has a page dedicated to the forthcoming Hyundai Creta compact SUV, which according to reports will launch on July 21, 2015. Production of the Renault Duster-rival is slated to begin on June 20, 2015, at the Korean car maker’s Chennai plant.

The Creta is expected with 1.6-liter petrol and diesel engines, a 1.4-liter diesel engine and manual and automatic transmissions.

Hyundai released the design sketches of the Creta last week, and in appearance, the compact SUV looks identical to the ix25 sold in China. Design inspiration comes from the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 language, and according to the company, the Creta features a “bold front, voluminous side and sporty rear”.

HMIL have not disclosed additional details of the Creta, but reports state that it will borrow the 1.6-liter VTVT petrol and CRDi diesel engines from the Verna. A base variant with a 1.4-liter CRDi engine could also be offered.

The Creta is described by Hyundai as a global SUV, though India will be the launch market for it. According to reports, localization levels on the Creta manufactured in India are expected to be above 90 percent, indicating that prices will be competitive.
