Aesthetic changes

2018 Hyundai Creta

The 2018 Hyundai Creta features a revised front fascia featuring a new grille, which is now placed closer to the headlamps. The restyled bumper comes with daytime running LEDs around the fog lamp housing. The headlamp silhouette remains the same but the internal layout is new. Like before, it continues to feature halogen projector headlamps. The Creta facelift is available in seven colours: Polar White, Sleek Silver, Stardust, Fiery Red, Phantom Black along with Marina Blue and Passion Orange, which have been introduced with the facelift. These new shades are also available with the Elite i20 facelift.

At the side, it's just the newly-designed 17-inch machine-finished alloy wheels that are different compared to the pre-facelift model. There is a new dual-tone bumper at the rear and tail lamps get new graphics. Sadly, Hyundai has decided not to offer LED elements in the tail lamps that are otherwise available in the China-spec model. The dual-tone black-beige cabin has also been retained. Creta variants with dual-tone exterior paintjob are available with an all-black cabin with orange highlights as before.
