A new spy video showing the interior of the 2020 Hyundai ix25 (2020 Hyundai Creta) has surfaced online. It gives the clearest look yet at the India-bound premium B-SUV's digital instrument cluster and portrait-style central display yet.
The exterior design of the 2020 Hyundai ix25 may look too bizarre, but its interior is surprisingly elegant. The cabin looks very posh and upmarket for a B-SUV. The steering wheel is a newly designed, more compact unit. Also new are the horizontal central air vents and an exceptionally large floating central display which seamlessly merges into the floor console and its fully-digital instrument cluster. The latter comes segmented into two parts, and the central position is taken by a MID screen which displays all the information in a conventional format. On the left side, the panel displays current speed and fuel level, while the right-side space has been occupied by the tachometer and engine temperature bar.
The knob of the gearshift lever of the 2020 Hyundai ix25 is sleek and shiny like that of luxury vehicles. The designers were able to give a minimalist look to the floor console by switching to an electric parking brake, which apparently comes with auto-hold function. Other key features of the 2020 Hyundai ix25 include a panoramic sunroof, shark fin antenna, split LED headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, split LED front and rear lights and a 360-degree camera system which was revealed in earlier images.
In terms of dimensions, the 2020 Hyundai ix25 measures 4,300 mm in length, 1,790 mm in width and 1,620 mm/1,635 mm in height. It is 10 mm longer and wider in comparison to the outgoing model. Also, the wheelbase is 20 mm longer at 2,610 mm, while height is shorter by 2 mm to 11 mm, depending on the configuration selected.
The 2020 Hyundai ix25 employs the 84.4 kW (114.75 PS) G4FL 1.5L naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine. The fuel economy rating will be up to 5.3 L/100 km (18.86 km/L) depending on the configuration selected. The top speed, also varying as per the configuration, is up to 175 km/h. The Indian-spec 2020 Hyundai Creta will be most likely offered with 115 PS 1.5L naturally aspirated petrol, 115 PS 1.5L turbocharged diesel and 120 PS 1.0L turbocharged petrol engine options.
The next-gen Hyundai Creta will be launched in India in H1 2020. From 2021, there will also be a 7-seat Hyundai Creta.
