Only top-end 2.0 Pulse and 2.0 Prestige are on sale.
Early units of the Hyundai Creta facelift have started arriving at dealer showrooms across Brazil this week, including test drive units. However models available for sale are only the top-end 2.0 Pulse and 2.0 Prestige, while the entry-level Creta 1.6 Attitude and Pulse variants will start arriving mid-February.
In Brazil, the Hyundai Creta is available in six variants, priced between BRL 72,990 – BRL 99,490 (INR 15.41 Lakhs – 21.04 Lakhs). Note that the model on sale Brazil is locally manufactured at HMB’s plant in Piracicaba, and is visually a bit different from the Hyundai Creta sold worldwide.
The Brazil-spec Creta features a large hexagonal grille, new bumper with a larger central intake, a pair of horizontal fog lamps and silver garnish, new cluster design for the taillamps, shark fin antenna, smaller reflectors and a bigger silver garnish on the rear bumper.
Engine lineup include a 1.6-litre flex-fuel engine paired with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, or a 2.0-litre flex-fuel engine only fitted with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
