Hyundai has unveiled the Creta facelift in the Russian market. The Hyundai Creta Facelift in Russia comes with mild exterior tweaks, two engine options, an All-Wheel-Drive system and a tweaked haunch. However, on the inside, the Hyundai Creta in Russia and the Indian market are similar in design and features.
Hyundai Creta Facelift – Design Highlights
The Hyundai Creta in Russia comes with a new cascading grille design with prominent chrome studs. The grille is surrounded by a silver bezel and flanked by the same LED headlamps and boomerang LED daytime running lights. The silver finish continues to the front skid plate, and the car comes with chunky fog lights on the lower bumper. The bumper and fog light appear similar to the Creta in India. In addition, the Hyundai Creta facelift comes with a new tailgate design and mild revisions to the tail light signatures on the rear.

In addition, the car comes with a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a chunky gear select lever. The brand also offers contoured seats on the Creta facelift.
Hyundai Creta Facelift – Engine Specifications

Both engines come with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The Creta in Russia also gets an All-Wheel-Drive option, depending on the variant.

In the Indian market, the Hyundai Creta comes with a naturally aspirated 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine that makes 115 PS of power and 144 Nm of torque, a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engine that produces 115 PS of power and 250 Nm of torque and a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine that produces 140 PS of power and 242 Nm of torque. In addition, the brand offers a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed torque converter type automatic gearbox, an IVT (CVT) gearbox, or a 7-speed DCT (Dual Clutch Automatic Transmission). But the brand does not offer an All-Wheel-Drivetrain.
The facelift model is likely to go on sale only in left-hand-drive markets such as China and Russia.
