Hyundai Creta (facelift) teased in Brazil


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Same design changes could be introduced in the Indian Creta in its mid-cycle program.

Hyundai Brazil has dropped another teaser of the local-spec Hyundai Creta, which features a pre-production prototype covered with black canvas.

The first couple of teasers released by the Korean manufacturer had revealed some of the differences to the India-spec Hyundai Creta, which include a wider hexagonal grille with chrome surrounds, horizontal fog lamps, redesigned bumper, and tweaked taillamps connected by a full-width chrome garnish between the tail lamps. The styling changes are likely to be introduced in the India-made Hyundai Creta and China-made Hyundai ix25 in its mid-cycle refresh.

Under the hood is a 1.6-litre CVVT flex-fuel engine sourced from the Hyundai HB20 family. It produces up to 128 cv (128 hp) and 16.5 kgf.m (161.81 Nm) of peak torque.Transmission options could include a 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearbox. It’s unclear if an AWD system will be offered.
