With this update, the Hyundai SUV gets better exterior and interior styling, but is also misses out on a practical boot

Facelifted Hyundai Creta: Pros and Cons

The facelifted Hyundai Creta was launched in early 2024 and we drove the compact SUV in its new avatar. The new Creta, while offering better design and more premium features, does miss out on some practical and powertrain bits. After our drive experience, we have made a list of some pros and cons of the new Creta, which you should look at before making your buying decision.


Improved Styling

One of the biggest changes that came to the Creta with this facelift was the massively improved design. The front, with its massive grille, and connected LED DRLs looks more imposing and the rear end also gets a connected LED taillight setup, which, combined with the front lighting setup makes the SUV look less polarising than before. Also, while the side profile is more or less the same, the overall design of the new Creta looks more sophisticated.

Better Cabin With Improved Quality

The cabin of the Creta has also been heavily redesigned and it now has a more minimalistic appeal. The dual-integrated displays are the first thing that catch your attention and Hyundai has also focused on other in-cabin details by giving them a gloss black finish. Also, design is not the only thing that has been improved. The material quality inside the cabin has been made better as well that includes the plastics, padding and the leatherette finishes, which helps the new Creta offer a better and a more upmarket experience inside the cabin.

Feature Loaded

With the facelift, the Creta also received a lot of new features that improves your drive experience. Apart from the dual 10.25-inch displays, the Creta also gets dual-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, and ventilated front seats. While some of these features were already present on the pre-facelift version, the addition of a couple of new ones makes the Creta’s feature list feel complete.

Also, a big feature has been added to the Creta and it is Level 2 ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems). This safety equipment comprises multiple features like adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and auto emergency braking. Also, apart from ADAS, the Creta also gets a 360-degree camera.


Shallow Boot

The new Creta comes with a boot loading capacity of 433-litres which is the same as the pre-facelift version. This amount of boot space should be enough for your few big suitcases, but due to the shallow design of this boot, you cannot store big suitcases with ease. Here, it's better to use multiple smaller hard suitcases (cabin luggage size) if you are planning to go on a long trip and want to keep your luggage without any hassle.

Limited Automatic & Turbo Variants

If you are planning to buy the Creta and prefer the convenience of an automatic transmission, then you should know that the automatic options are fairly limited. It gets three engine options: a 1.5-litre petrol which gets a CVT in just 3 variants (S(O), SX Tech and SX (O)) and , a 1.5-litre diesel which gets 6-speed automatic with just 2 variants (S(O) and SX(O)) and the new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine, which only comes with a DCT is only available in a single top-spec variant (SX(O)).
