The Brazilian-spec Hyundai Creta will be powered by the Hyundai HB20’s 1.6-litre CVVT flex-fuel engine.

An earlier report, citing Cassio Pagliarini, Marketing Director, Hyundai Motor Brasil, said that the company is yet to decide if it should go for the ‘Hyundai ix25’ branding or the ‘Hyundai Creta’ branding.

According to the Brazilian publication’s report, the Hyundai Creta will be offered in Brazil with the Hyundai HB20’s 1.6-litre CVVT flex-fuel engine that produces up to 128 bhp and up to 16.5 kgf.m (161.81 Nm) of torque. 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic are likely to be the transmission choices.

The Hyundai Creta for Brazil, and possibly many other South American markets, will be made at the Piracicaba plant in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The extent of localization should be a full-scale manufacturing. It will rival the likes of the Honda HR-V, Nissan Juke and Renault Duster in the South American market.
