The 2020 Hyundai Creta's engines and transmissions are already being used in the Kia Seltos. Both SUVs are based on the same platform. Unlike the Kia model, the Hyundai model will get a 7-seat version, sometime in 2021. Kia, on the other hand, will launch a compact MPV using the same platform in 2021.
Back to the next-gen Hyundai Creta, it will be offered in E, EX, S, SX and SX (O) trims. In total, there will be 14 configurations available. It will be equipped with features like split LED headlamps, 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, LED rear combination lamps, panoramic sunroof, electric parking brake, aircraft-style gearshift lever, virtual instrument cluster, large touchscreen infotainment system and six airbags.
The 2020 Hyundai Creta's chief rival will be its platform-mate Kia Seltos. However, bigger, C-segment SUVs like the MG Hector and Tata Harrier will also be included in the list of competitors based on pricing.
Hyundai will launch the 2020 Creta in India on 17 March. The very next day, Volkswagen will launch its own global premium B-SUV - the T-Roc. However, this will be a CBU import and it may cost above INR 20 lakh (ex-showroom).
