2022 Hyundai Creta Launched In South Africa
Hyundai has made Creta’s facelift available in South Africa. The Indonesian model that was unveiled last year is comparable to this update. Since the majority of the Creta facelift’s alterations are made up front and the remainder of the mid-size SUV is mostly unchanged, it is truly a “facelift. We anticipate the Creta facelift to arrive on Indian soil next year, despite the fact that Hyundai has not yet made any comments on its debut here.
Similar to Tucson, the 2022 Hyundai Creta has a front grille with a “parametric-jewel” pattern and integrated LED DRLs. The rear features reworked tail lamps and a stop signal located on the roof. Additionally, it gets revised bumpers and a silver grille insert. The car’s interior now has a black theme. The Creta facelift receives amenities including a rear parking camera, cruise control, a wireless smartphone charger, and electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs in addition to a nearly identical interior layout.
Contrary to the Indonesian model, it does appear to be lacking in a number of equipment, including a digital instrument cluster, ADAS, a panoramic sunroof, and even automated climate control. With a 10.25-inch HD infotainment system, an 8-speaker Bose sound system, paddle shifters, ventilated seats, and adjustable drive modes, the Indian-spec Creta is similarly well-equipped.
There will be just one normally aspirated petrol engine available for the South African Creta. Its 1.5-liter gasoline engine produces 113 horsepower and 144 Nm of torque. It will have a CVT and a six-speed manual transmission. In contrast, Hyundai offers the aforementioned powertrain in India together with the 115PS 1.5-liter diesel and 140PS 1.4-liter turbo-petrol engine options. An iMT is an additional option for the Indian Creta.
We anticipate that the Creta makeover will include ADAS when it is released the following year, just like the Tucson that was just unveiled. The Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, VW Taigun, MG Astor, and some variations of the Mahindra XUV700, Tata Harrier, and MG Hector are the Creta facelift’s current competitors.
