According to a report from March, Hyundai will launch the Creta facelift next month.

Heavy camouflage means much of the exterior of the Hyundai Creta facelift remains hidden. The spy shot gives a glimpse of the new tail lamp and its glow pattern. An image of an uncamouflaged example shared earlier this month revealed changes made to the front including the new grille, a more prominent silver skid plate, redesigned bumper, and chunkier fog lamp housing in black colour.

The 2018 Creta will sport new 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels picked out from the Brazilian-spec Hyundai Creta Sport. Hyundai will also add a sunroof to list of features on offer.

The 123 PS 1.6-litre petrol, 90 PS 1.4-litre diesel, and 128 PS 1.6-litre diesel engines are expected to be carried over unchanged. All three come paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, while the 1.6 l petrol and diesel engines can be had with a 6-speed automatic transmission as well.

Currently, the Hyundai Creta range starts INR 9.29 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi) onwards. Expect the 2018 model to have a similar starting price. The addition of features like a sunroof may push up the price of top-end trims.
