Expected to launch by early next year.

Beijing-Hyundai introduced the Hyundai ix25 in 2014, which was, with very minor body changes, launched as the Hyundai Creta and the Hyundai Cantus in India and other emerging markets from 2015. Now, Hyundai has started development of the facelifted Hyundai ix25 in China.

The facelift could make the Hyundai ix25 look similar to the Brazilian-spec Hyundai Creta.

The facelifted Hyundai Creta (Hyundai ix25) has its front and rear covered in dense camouflage. However, a closer look does reveal a new front grille hiding beneath the camouflage. The facelift could make the B-SUV look similar to the Brazilian-spec Hyundai Creta that debuted at the 2016 Sao Paulo Auto Show and is on sale in Brazil. The new Creta should feature updated headlamp and tail lamp graphics, reshaped fog lamps, more aggressive bumpers and new design wheels.

On the inside, the 2018 Hyundai Creta should get new dashboard trim, fresh seat upholstery choices, revised instrument cluster and an upgraded infotainment system among other changes. Needless to say, Hyundai could bring some equipment revisions with the mid-cycle update.

The Chinese-spec Hyundai Creta (Hyundai ix25) is offered with 91.6 kW (122.79 hp) 1.6-litre Gamma naturally aspirated, 118 kW (158.18 hp) 2.0-litre Nu and 117.7 kW (157.77 hp) 1.6-litre Gamma turbocharged petrol engines. 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic are the transmission choices, along with optional 4WD. HMIL may not plan for expensive powertrains, but the Indian-spec version could gain mild-hybrid tech with the facelift, while retaining the current 1.4- and 1.6-litre engine options.
