The Creta will reportedly enter production at HMIL’s Chennai facility on June 20, and a market launch will take place on July 21. The Creta will be offered with petrol and diesel engines, and manual and automatic transmissions at the time of launch.

The Creta seen here is likely a mid-level variant on test, indicated by the manual aircon system. However, it sports alloy wheels, projector headlights, integrated turn signals on the wing mirrors, a rear wiper and a 6-speed manual transmission.
