Hyundai Creta is currently one of the dominant players in the compact SUV segment. The car was first launched back in the year 2015 and gathered overwhelming response from across the country. But looking at the brewing competition, Hyundai Creta has had to find ways to become more desirable. So, company has recently provided the car with much needed facelift that includes the outer cosmetic changes along with the interiors updates. As for the engine, Creta has always been a solid package, so Hyundai thought to keep the engine options same. Besides, there are aesthetic changes provided to make the car look fresh and appealing. Hyundai Creta is based on the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy and looks similar as mini Santa Fe. The recent changes in the car is an attempt to muffle the popularity of the rivals.
On the outside, Hyundai Creta gets the boxy and aggressive looks. The 2018 Creta gets the square off-edges that provide it with distinctive appeal. Hyundai Creta gives you a desirable road presence. At the front, new Creta is featured with the signature Hyundai family grille, now it gets broad chrome accent around it. Headlamp design is also new while the DRLs are now shifted down to the re-designed bumper and surround the fog lamps. On the sides, it gets the all-new set of wheels in the form 17-inch 5-spoke machine cut alloy wheels while the roof rails now sit in level with the roof. At the rear, changes are quite subtle but noticeable. Rear bumper is redesigned and the tail light units are also tweaked. In terms of dimensions, Hyundai Creta measures 4270mm in length, 1665mm in height and 1780mm in width. The overall wheelbase stands at 2590mm while the ground clearance is 198mm. Hyundai Creta is available in different graceful shades such as Stardust, Sleek Silver, Polar white, Passion Orange, Phantom Black, Fiery Red and Marina Blue. Its dual tone body colours include Polar White with Phantom black and Passion Orange with Phantom Black.
Seeing the interiors, one can notice that Hyundai has not made any massive changes to the layout inside the cabin. The interiors remain the familiar thing with the same five seat layout. The dual tone colour scheme continues to adore the cabin while its top trim SX+ gets the all-black cabin. Hyundai Creta is quite a spacious car and offers good legroom, headroom and knee room. As one expects, Hyundai Creta comes equipped with rich list of features. Techs include 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, wireless mobile charging dock, iBlue audio control app and 4 speakers and front tweeters. The car also gets 6-way electrically adjustable driver seat, Smart key band, steering mounted audio controls, keyless entry, reverse parking camera with sensors, auto-dimming inside rear view mirror, auto climate control with rear AC vents, electric tailgate release and smart electric sunroof.
Hyundai Creta is offered in three different engine options; 1.6-litre petrol, 1.4-litre diesel and 1.6-litre diesel. Its 1.6 litre petrol is capable of generating the power output of 123PS and maximum torque of 151Nm. In the diesel department, the 1.4-litre diesel unit can churn the power output of 90PS and belts out the maximum torque of 220Nm while its 1.6-litre diesel unit can generate 128PS of power output and 260Nm of peak torque. All the powertrains comes mated to 6-speed manual transmission, however the 1.6-litre petrol and diesel trims can be availed with the option of six-speed automatic gearbox as well.
For better safety of its passengers, Hyundai Creta comes equipped with plethora of safety aspects. the list includes 6 airbags, Hill start assist control, electronic stability control, ABS with EBD, vehicle stability management control (VSM), Front seat belt with pre-tensioner, child seat anchor (ISOFIX), height adjustable driver seat belt and engine immobilizer. Other additional features are rear parking sensors, rear camera with steering adaptive parking guidelines display, day/night inside rear view mirror, electro chromic mirror, lane change indicator, speed sensing auto door lock and rear defogger with timer. Hyundai Creta gives tough competition to the likes in the segment such as Maruti S-Cross, Renault Duster and Renault Captur.
Hyundai Creta is available in 6 different variants such as E, E+, S, SX, SX Dual tone and SX (O). The price range for the Creta starts from Rs. 9.5 lakh and goes all the way up to Rs. 15.63 lakh. Its base variant E gets the price tag of Rs. 9.5 lakh while the diesel trim is available at the price tag of Rs. 10.0 lakh. Creta SX is tagged at Rs. 12.06 lakh and Rs. 13.41 lakh for petrol and diesel respectively. Its top of the line variant SX (O) is available at the price tag of Rs. 13.69 lakh for petrol and Rs. 15.18 lakh for diesel trim, all priced ex-showroom.


Let’s get started with the most prominent change inside i.e. sunroof. Hyundai too has followed other manufacturer’s suite to throw in a sunroof for more comfort and convenience. While some may feel that the Indian climate conditions are not compatible with this feature, there is no denying that sunroof is a wow factor inside a car. But it’s a typical electric sunroof and nothing special to say about it, however, the big benefit remains that it gives airy feel inside the cabin.
Mainly in this update, Hyundai has resorted to ‘don’t fix if ain’t broken’ approach. Ingress and egress is quite easy since the vehicle doesn’t sit up too high from the surface. The only few things that get into the way of entering a bit tricky, especially for the senior citizen, is the side thick sills. And once you get inside, you get into a world in which you see a balance in style and sensibility. The dashboard of the car remains unchanged and is also the only place where you will find the dab of beige. Rest, your will see the cabin is surrounded by black.
The space is something which will divide opinions, but it’s neither splendid not generous. The car might look wide from outside, but it isn’t the same from inside. However, the tall roofline lends it a more spacious feel. Once you hop on to the front seat you will see that the seating position of the car is quite high which could be unsettling for many drivers. While the driving person can’t see the edge of the hood, the high-set branch gives the person extra dose of confidence during heavy traffic. Further, the electric adjustability of the seat is certainly an added bonus. It gives you the flexibility of fine-tuning the driver position.
As far as steering is concerned, it still comes only with tilt adjustability but the good thing is that it has been set at a natural distance from the dashboard which should not be a problem. This time around in terms of tech and features, Hyundai seems to be a bit conservative. The main additions in this facelift are sunroof and powered driver seat. Other minor changes include auto-dimming IRVM, wearable key known as ‘H-Band’ and a wireless phone charger. Where the smart band seems to be a nice touch, the charging pad for smartphone might be problematic as it draws power from the current 12V socket placed in the dashboard. So, in this case you can’t use your own charger, for that you have the USB port available.
There are some misses as against the expectations. Features such as automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, and ventilated seats have been conspicuously omitted. It’s not like this will break the buying decision, but these features are certainly feel-good ones that anyone wants if he or she is spending Rs. 16 lakh. However, the car comes loaded with plethora of other comfort aspect which every Creta lover will appreciate. These include steering mounted controls, automatic AC with rear ac vents, cruise control, smart key with push start button, follow me headlamps, electric tailgate release, front USB charger, front and rear power outlet and electrically adjustable/foldable ORVM.
Though the screen size of the infotainment system remains the same, it now gets updated software from the Verna. The infotainment is absolutely user-friendly and sleek to operate. And as usual, it comes powered by Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink while the connectivity option remains the same with USB, Bluetooth and Aux-in functionality. The decibels are powered by sound system provided by Arkamys with 4 speakers and 2 tweeters. The infotainment also comes equipped with Auto Link Connected Car technology and Hyundai i-Blue audio remote application.
The instrument cluster features the same design as before and the dials are also carried forward in this version. However, the multi-information display (MID) has been updated and now sports the same function as that in new Verna. That means the digital fuel plus temperature gauge can now be seen inside the dials. The MID displays a lot of information including instant fuel consumption, single trip meter, distance to empty counter, outside temperature, distance travelled digital speedometer and average consumption and time taken among others.
In terms of spacing and storage, the compact SUV offers good headroom, legroom, shoulder and knee room while the seats are supportive enough even of the large frames. Two six-footers can sit one behind the other with ease while the shoulder room at the rear is average. However, three adults can sit at the rear but with slightly tight-situation. So, Creta is a good 4-seater for longer journeys.
In terms of storage, it is one of the practically laid out cabin we have seen in Hyundai cars with cup holders available in between the front passengers, under arm storage at the front, door bins which can house 1L of bottle each, rear seat armrest with cup holders and sunglass holder. Moreover, the rear seat can be folded down to extend the 402L boot space further. Overall, the Creta mostly remain the same save some additional comfort features.


The most striking thing the car gets in the latest facelift is the new colour options. The fresh ‘passion orange’ and the ‘marina blue’ paints are simply to drag attention of the passer-by. And if you don’t believe this, then compare these new colours with other colours options in the brochure and you will definitely realize that Hyundai wants this car to get noticed.
Coming to the other visual updates, they are distinctive for sure, but one is unable to grasp that immediately. At the front, the most prominent and easier to spot change comes in the form of new bigger grille that makes SUV looks a bit wider than the earlier version. The grille is further accentuated with the chrome outlining all around boosting the ‘we are family’ philosophy the carmaker has been striving for.
Then the alterations come in the form of new headlamps which might appear the same due to identical shape, but the Korean automaker has fiddled a bit with the details. The headlamp cluster now no longer features the daytime running LEDs and instead, has been moved down to the bumper and adjacent to the fog lamps which have also toned down. It might look aftermarket a bit but it does gel well with the re-designed bumper.
Coming to the sides, here the carmaker hasn’t played around much as the only major change is the 17-inch 5-spoke machined cut alloy wheels wrapped in the same 215/60R17 tyres as earlier. The roof rails now sit flat with the roof. At the rear, the changes are subtle. The freshness quotient has been enhanced with the revised rear bumper which no longer goes up to the body in a straight line. The tail lamp design has also been revamped to make it look smarter. The car also gets bold front and rear skid plates for enhancing the aggressiveness.

Mileage Running Cost

Though Hyundai has not changed the engine, it has tuned the engine to derive 4 percent more fuel efficiency. The petrol variants of Creta are able to deliver ARAI certified 13kmpl while the diesel ones on the other hand, returns 17kmpl.

Comfort Suspension

Since the carmaker hasn’t done any mechanical changes this time around, the car shows relatively the same driving dynamics. Driving in the cities, the suspension setup does a decent job of preventing the occupants from small and medium road imperfections. And when it comes to large speed breakers, here also the suspension comes with flying colours without breaking a sweat. However, in terms of sharp bumps such as potholes, level changes and expansion gaps, we can say that the suspension has been tuned to be on the firmer side as some of the bumps invade the cabin.
As far as steering and clutch are concerned, they are light and are of typical Hyundai, giving effortless driving when moving in and around the town. In short, the Hyundai Creta offers balanced suspension, comfortable ride quality with neutral handling.

Engine Performance

As Hyundai hasn’t touched the engine as there was little need for that, you will not notice much difference in terms of performance. Talking about the diesel engine, there are two options the 1.6L 4-cylinder CRDi motor that produces the same 128PS and 259Nm of torque, and the 1.4L 4-cylinder powertrain that produces 90PS and 220Nm of torque. Both the engines come mated with 6-speed manual transmission while the 1.6L can also be availed with 6-speed automatic.
In terms of performance, the diesel engines offer decent low speed torque and meaty mid-range offering good drivability. However, when it comes to top end torque, the performance start to suffer. But the mid-range just needs 2100rpm to traverse at 100kmph and overtaking at high speeds doesn’t need a downshift either. The 1.4L powered Creta can be primarily used in the city driving offering low speed and allowing you take upshift early. On the highways, this engine will run out of breath if you are cruising hard and going up to the 6th gear and revving hard would be exercise in futility. In terms of NVH levels, the Creta is a smooth car with excellent refinement levels so much so that you could get easily confuse as if it’s a petrol motor.
The petrol driven Creta on the other hand, features 1.6L dual VTVT engine produces 123PS and 151Nm of peak torque. Driving in the cities will plaster smile on your face especially when you are in the second or third gear as it gives enough power to effortlessly accelerate, if required. On the open stretches, you would definitely want the engine to spin around 2000rpm, a place of its highest ecstasy but there will be still enough power available for quick overtaking when there is a need.

Braking Safety

In terms of braking, there is ample stopping power on tap, however, the initial bite from the typical Hyundai’s perspective isn’t very sharp. The brakes in automatic Creta need to be stronger as their stopping capability isn’t confidence inspiring. Further, there are electronic aids such as ABS with EBD that further gives you command on the road.
In terms of safety, besides ABS and EBD, the new Creta comes equipped with dual airbags and day/night IRVM and lane change indicator as standard. Move up the variant ladder and you will get 6 airbags plus electronic stability control (ESC), vehicle stability management control (VSM), rear parking sensors with camera and adaptive steering with parking guidelines, child seat anchor (ISOFIX), lane change flash adjustment and speed sensing & impact sensing auto door lock.
