The test mule sports two-tone 17-inch alloy wheels. The Brazil-spec Creta comes equipped with an identical set of alloy wheels.

The latest spy shots partially reveal a new set of tail lights, similar to the Brazil-spec Creta's. As evident from images shared earlier this month, the facelift will get 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels from the Hyundai Creta Sport sold in Brazil. Hyundai will also add a sunroof to the features list of the Creta. Exterior updates to the front section will add a new 'Cascading' grille and a reprofiled bumper.

Hyundai may upgrade the SUV’s touchscreen infotainment system to support its Auto Link smartphone app. Changes to the interior will be minor and may come in the form of new seat upholstery.
