Hyundai Creta iMT, Knight Edition To Be Launched Soon
Hyundai will soon provide a fifth transmission choice for its popular Creta model range. According to dealer sources, the Creta will have a 6-speed iMT gearbox, similar to the Venue and i20, and prices will be disclosed soon.
A reshuffle in the variation lineup is also planned. Hyundai has also unveiled a new Creta Knight Edition, which has a blacked-out exterior and interior accents.
On the Hyundai Creta, the 6-speed iMT clutchless manual transmission is available with the 115hp 1.5-litre petrol engine. This petrol engine currently comes with three transmission options: a 6-speed manual, an iMT, and a CVT automatic transmission. The iMT gearbox will only be offered on Creta S’s mid-spec model, with costs to be confirmed soon.
The remainder of the Creta lineup has also been reshuffled in a different way. A new S+ model will be offered with the 140hp 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine. This engine gearbox was previously only available on the higher-spec SX and SX(O) models. Hyundai has also dropped the 1.4 turbo DCT SX and 1.5 diesel AT SX models from its lineup.
The Creta Knight Edition follows the pattern of Tata’s Dark Edition versions by having an all-black exterior and interior. The Hyundai Knight Edition versions include a new gloss black grille with red inlays, blacked-out front and rear skid plates, and red front brake callipers, as opposed to the ordinary models.
The blacked-out wing mirrors, roof rails, side sills, and C pillar garnish are also included. The Hyundai logo on the front and rear is also finished in dark chrome. Meanwhile, the wheels have been refinished in a new gunmetal colour, and a Knight Edition logo has been added to the tailgate.
On the inside, the all-black concept continues with the seat upholstery and dashboard, with the AC vents in red for contrast. The seats have red contrast stitching as well.
The Creta Knight Edition is available on the S+ and top-spec SX(O) automatic models, which were just released. The 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines are available, but the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine is not.

Due to the persistent chip scarcity, the Creta might take up to six months to arrive at most places, depending on the variation. In Indonesia, Hyundai has already announced a big facelift to the Creta, and the revamped SUV might arrive in the United States before the end of the year.
