According to the leaked images, the Hyundai is set to launch the 2021 Creta SUV with the latest features and improved connectivity. The images appear to be from Hyundai’s internal presentation and reveal the updates featured across key variants.
We can see some models with excluded features, while some receive additional upgrades. This revelation makes noise online immediately after Hyundai’s sister brand, Kia launched the 2021 Seltos and Sonet in India.
As per the new details, Creta’s base variant E comes with some missing features, such as turn indicators on the ORVMs, map pocket in the rear seat, electrically adjustable ORVMs, and luggage lamp. At the same time, it includes some new features like fender-mounted turn indicators and manually adjustable ORVMs.
Hyundai Creta’s mid-spec EX and S variants will receive wireless technology like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In the current model, we could see these two variants holding the wired connectivity apps.
To speak about high-spec SX and SX(O) variants of the SUV, it comes with the enhanced connectivity features. The list comprises – control drive-side power windows, Over The Air (OTA) updates, POI search, new Voice Recognition commands, and welcome greetings.
Both the manual and automatic variants of SX and SX(O) receive the Remote Engine Start function on the smart key. Besides, they are also packed with the updated interior as it gets a soft paint finish on the dashboard.
Under the hood, the Creta is likely to remain unchanged. It includes the same three engine options – 1.5-litre petrol, 1.4-litre Turbo GDI petrol, and a 1.5-litre VGT diesel.
The naturally aspirated petrol engine, as well as the turbocharged diesel engines, are known to produce 113bhp and 144Nm, and 250 Nm of peak torque. The turbo petrol generates 138bhp and 242Nm of torque.
A 6-speed manual transmission is likely to be standard across the range, with iVT automatic for the 1.5-litre petrol unit, 7-speed DCT for the 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine, and an optional torque convertor for the 1.5-litre diesel engine.
