11 January 2019 -
Hyundai India will soon update the Creta with new features and revised equipment lines, a leaked internal document posted by Team-BHP forum member BayB has revealed.
With the MY2019 update, Hyundai will introduce front passenger seatbelt reminder and speed alert system in all the equipment lines, as these are soon government mandated. In addition to the existing E, E+, S, SX, SX Dual Tone and SX (O) grades, the company offers a new SX (O) Executive grade that will sit at the top of the range.
The SX (O) Executive grade will include one additional feature over the SX (O) grade - ventilated front seats. Hyundai will offer it with the 1.6-litre Dual VTVT petrol engine and the 1.6-litre CRDi with VGT diesel engine - both coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission as standard.
LED tail lamps are the Creta's most common aftermarket accessory, but not anymore. The MY2019 model will come with factory-fitted LED tail lamps, in the SX, SX Dual Tone, SX (O) and SX (O) Executive grades. The E, E+ and S grades will feature semi cloth seats, and that would mean a downgrade (from full cloth seats) for the S grade.
The Eco Coating technology that had its world premiere in the Hyundai Verna last year will make it to the premium B-SUV with the update. It prevents unpleasant smell to develop in the AC Evaporator ensuring the dispensation of an odour free and fresh air. All the grades will feature Eco Coating. The SX grade will lose Cluster Ionizer, though.
The 2019 Hyundai Creta should go on sale in a few weeks. The current model’s prices range from INR 9,50,008-15,10,034 (ex-showroom Delhi).
