Launch confirmed for July 21, 2015.

A reader of Motoroids has snapped these revealing images of the Hyundai Creta compact SUV, sans camouflage. As can be seen, the Creta is a lookalike of the Hyundai ix25 sold in China, save for minor differences.

For the Indian market, the Creta is expected with the same engines seen on the Verna.

The rear registration plate enclosure of the Creta gets a chrome applique, and the Creta seen here appears to get Silver-colored wind deflectors, which could be an aftermarket fitment. Also, the 'SX' badge on the bootlid gives this particular Creta away as a top-end model, hence the projector headlights, foglights, alloy wheels, wing mirrors with integrated turn signals, and a rear wiper washer. However, there could be another variant above this model with chrome-plated door handles and larger, diamond-cut alloy wheels.

For the Indian market, the Creta is reported to get its power from 1.4- and 1.6-liter CRDi diesel engines and a 1.6-liter VTVT petrol engine, paired to manual and automatic transmissions. However, its still a huge question mark if Hyundai decides to offer a 4WD system for the compact SUV.
