Exterior design of the 2024 Hyundai Creta leaked ahead of launch
Last week, Hyundai revealed the first teaser images of the refreshed Creta. Despite the automaker's best efforts to hide some of the vehicle's exterior, it's quite clear they were busy giving the B-segment crossover some major changes.
From having a boxier shape, a Palisade-inspired front end, as well as having redesigned LED taillights, Hyundai sure was busy giving the Creta a fresh new look for the 2024 model year. It's set to debut later this month in India and will come with a refreshed cabin as well as a plethora of new engine options.
Fast forward a week later, and leaked pictures of the updated Hyundai Creta have made their way onto the web. Spotted at what looks like a Hyundai stockyard, we get a better look at the Creta's new Palisade-inspired front fascia. Not only does it get a boxier face, but it also gets quad-beam LED headlights along with LED daytime running lights that now extend towards the entire width of the vehicle. There's also a restyled front bumper, more defined flared wheel arches, and new alloy wheels.
Around the back, the 2024 Creta appears to have taken inspiration from Volkswagen in redesigning the crossover's LED taillights. A black trim runs the entire width of the tailgate and is joined by new LED taillights. Last but not least is not a roof-mounted spoiler, an updated rear bumper, and new rear reflectors.
We have yet to see the cabin in full although we did get a glimpse last week which now features an integrated touchscreen and digital instrument cluster. The HVAC panel was also given a once-over and now appears to be available with a touchscreen instead of traditional gauges/buttons.
Under the hood, the Indian-spec Creta will be offered with three engine choices. The first is the carried-over 1.5-liter naturally-aspirated Smartstream G four-cylinder that makes 115 PS with 144 Nm of torque. Next is the turbocharged 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four which puts out 160 PS with 253 Nm of torque. Last but not least is a 1.5-liter turbo-diesel that puts out a respectable 116 PS and 250 Nm of torque.
Transmission options for the 2024 Creta will likely come in a 6-speed manual, an IVT, a 6-speed automatic, and perhaps a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The 2024 Hyundai Creta will officially be revealed in India on January 16.
