2022 Creta Spotted Testing
Creta is currently the top-selling SUV in the Indian market. Given the popularity of the model, Hyundai is planning to give Creta a mid-cycle facelift update. In the leaked spy images, the most highlighting takeaway is the front fascia. Reports suggest that the new Creta will draw inspiration from Tucson in terms of the design language. The ‘Parametric Dynamics’ used in Tucson and the Santacruz will also appear in the new Creta. Some rumours also suggest that Hyundai will also update the powertrain options. To make Creta more efficient, Hyundai will likely provide a mild-hybrid technology. The SUV will most likely hit the showrooms in India by mid-2022.
