Different parts of the world have different driver’s demands. Therefore, global carmakers make car models that are designed for specific markets only. This is one of them. The Creta is a compact crossover that comes primarily to developing markets. It originally arrived in China four years ago. These days, you can find it also in countries like India and Russia, as well as in South America and a few more parts of the world. Considering its age, we can find a lot of rumors about the mid-cycle update on the internet. Most of them suggest visual changes only, while the rest of the vehicle is about to remain the same. The 2019 Hyundai Creta will be the year model to receive novelties. Its arrival is a matter of weeks. At this point, we know for sure that the new version will continue on familiar markets.
2019 Hyundai Creta Design
This is a compact crossover that originally came in 2014. It is also known as the ix25 on some markets and it rides on the same platform as more familiar Kia Soul. Latest reports suggest a mid-cycle refresh for the next year. For this occasion, we expect to see several interesting changes. Most likely, the mechanical aspect of the vehicle will remain untouched. This refers to the powertrain lineup as well. On the other side, we count on lots of visual upgrades.
Speaking of the visual changes, we must say that the current model doesn’t follow the brand’s previous design language entirely. It comes with a couple of distinctive details, we would say exclusively for these developing markets. However, we have no doubt that the upcoming update is about to bring the 2019 Hyundai Creta closer to the company’s newest design language. This would mean that we can count on the company’s new, narrow headlights and massive grille, most reports would say. Still, we are pretty sure that the upcoming changes will be less intense and that those radical modifications Hyundai will leave for the complete overhaul.
2019 Hyundai Creta Interior
Despite being designed for developing markets, the cabin of this crossover looks pretty good. Of course, you can find more hard plastics than usual, but the overall impression is pretty good. Also, the overall styling looks pretty attractive, especially the center stack. The crossover features capacity for five people and both rows are quite comfortable. A cargo is also pretty spacious, considering the model’s size. All in all, we don’t expect to see too many changes on the inside of 2019 Hyundai Creta. It should continue with a familiar interior layout. Still, count on new color schemes, as well as on a few more standard features.
2019 Hyundai Creta Engines
The engine compartment is another aspect of the car that won’t feature changes. This crossover comes to different parts of the world, so a variety of powertrain option is no wonder at all. On most markets, there is a choice between 2.0-liter gasoline and 1.6-liter diesel engine. A gasoline unit delivers around 166 horses, while a familiar CRDi is good for about 130 horsepower. On markets like India, you can also find a smaller 1.4-liter diesel engine, which delivers around 90 hp. When it comes to transmission, you have a choice between 6-speed automatic and 6-speed manual.
2019 Hyundai Creta Release Date and Price
The 2019 Hyundai Creta will come in the next few weeks. We don’t expect bigger changes in price. Still, keep in mind that base price could vary depending on the market. For example, 2019 Hyundai Creta price in India starts at 13.500 dollars.
