For the past few weeks, the upcoming Hyundai Creta has been the talk of the town. From being observed on roads during pre-launch testing to being teased on the company’s website, the revamped Creta has drawn attention from all directions. Hyundai has now formally released the teaser for the upcoming Creta ahead of its January 16 release.
Since the second generation of the compact SUV was unveiled in February 2020, this is the first significant update to the vehicle. The SUV’s revised exterior design was previously shown in a set of official sketches that the Korean automaker had previously released. The new Creta’s final production design has now been made public by the Korean automaker.

Hyundai Creta facelift for 2024: New styling
The refreshed Creta is in line with Hyundai’s most recent version of its “Sensuous Sportiness” design philosophy and draws design cues from more expensive international vehicles, such as the recently updated Tucson and Santa Fe. The new black chrome parametric grille with vertically stacked twin-LED projector headlamps on either side is the most noticeable design update.
The LED Horizon positioning lamps concealed within the parametric grille are another stylish highlight. Thanks to the fake skid plate, the reprofiled front bumper has a chunky appearance. Aside from a new alloy wheel design, the side profile is essentially unchanged. The linked LED light bar treatment is maintained at the back, but the taillamp has been redesigned with H-shaped LED components.
A sizable silver bash plate with vertical reflector strips on either side is also housed in the rear bumper. In addition, Hyundai will provide six monochromatic and one dual-chromatic color option, which include the following: Fiery Red, Ranger Khaki, Abyss Black, Atlas White, Titan Grey, and Atlas White with Black Roof (dual-tone).

The new Creta’s cabin interiors have undergone a significant makeover, including new upholstery shades, a redesigned HVAC control panel with a new touch panel, and a twin-screen setup for a touchscreen infotainment system and a fully digital instrument console.
An upgraded version of the Hyundai BlueLink App, which boasts 70 connected car features, will also be available for the new Creta. Devices like ambient lighting, dual-zone climate control, powered driver seat, and others are also advantageous. Six airbags, an electronic parking brake, a 360-degree parking camera, ventilated front seats, and Level 2 ADAS active safety features are among the other noteworthy feature additions.
