“Revamped Elegance: Hyundai Unveils 2024 Creta Facelift with Bookings Open – Launching January 16th!”


Hyundai has kickstarted the anticipation for the upcoming 2024 Creta, set to launch on January 16. Bookings are now open with a required token payment of ₹25,000. Expected to feature significant enhancements both externally and internally beyond the facelift, the manufacturer hints at a glimpse into the redesigned cabin.

The upcoming Hyundai Creta is set to embrace a more minimalistic approach for its dashboard design. The presence of a dual 10.25-inch screen is notable, promising to work on a new user interface for the touchscreen infotainment system. Additionally, a new digital instrument cluster borrowed from the Alcazar model will be incorporated.

A noteworthy change is the redesigned center console with a reimagined infotainment system at its core. Just below it, a new touch-controlled climate system is introduced, though opinions may vary. The gear lever and storage space have undergone a redesign, featuring slim AC vents placed between the infotainment and climate control components. The Creta facelift will retain features like the backlit switch, four-spoke steering wheel, center armrest, dual-tone cabin theme, and ambient lighting.

Hyundai officially announced that the 2024 Creta will be available in seven different variants:

E, EX, S, S (O), SX, SX Tech, and SX (O). There will be six single-tone and one dual-tone option in terms of colors. Regarding engine options, the midsize SUV will offer three choices: a 1.5L MPi petrol, a 1.5L U2 CRDi diesel, and a 1.5L Kappa Turbo GDi petrol engine.

The Hyundai Creta has  maintained its position as one of the best-selling SUVs in the Indian market for the last three years. Having garnered the preference of more than 950,000 delighted customers, the Creta has consistently upheld its widespread appeal.

Upon release, the upcoming Creta will face competition from models like the Toyota Urban Cruiser, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Kia Seltos, MG Astor, Tata Harrier, Skoda Kushaq, and Volkswagen Taigun.

In the latest development, Hyundai initiated bookings for the 2024 Creta earlier this week. The pricing will be revealed closer to the January 16 launch, and the detailed variant list and color options are available on their official website.

It’s worth noting that the new Creta facelift will not offer a turbo-petrol MT variant. For customers opting for the turbo-petrol version, Hyundai has listed only two variants, which include the DCT SX(O) and DCT SX(O) dual-tone. Customers desiring a manual gearbox can choose from the 1.5-liter NA petrol motor or the 1.5-liter diesel.

In comparison to the existing model, the new Creta will showcase changes such as modified front and rear bumpers, new LED DRLs, rectangular LED headlamps, LED light bar on the tailgate, a new grille, and 3D Hyundai logos on the front and rear. Inside, the midsize SUV will feature a 360-degree camera, twin screens on the dashboard with a new full digital instrument cluster, touch-based controls for the AC functions, redesigned gear lever, and an ambient lighting system.

Hyundai Motor and Kia have laid out plans to take a leading role in electrification, aiming for a 2% growth in auto sales by 2024:

In 2023, Hyundai Motor and Kia successfully sold 7.3 million automobiles, slightly below their collective goal of 7.52 million, attributed mainly to rising interest rates and currency fluctuations, creating challenging economic conditions that made some vehicles financially inaccessible for potential buyers.

In example, Kia broke all previous records for sales last year, selling a record-breaking 3.09 million cars worldwide. The previous peak for the company’s sales was 3.04 million in 2014.

The company expects to sell 3.2 million devices in 2024, more than 4% from the year before.

Executive Vice Chairman of the Hyundai Motor Group Euisun Chung stressed the value of swiftly making well-informed decisions and gaining the full trust of customers in his New Year’s speech. Chung stressed the significance of continuing to be prepared for long-term, steady growth while converting obstacles from the outside world into opportunities.
