Hyundai is expected to launch the Creta facelift in the coming days. Unofficial bookings for the 2018 Creta are already underway. While the overall size and the powertrain options remain the same as before, the updated SUV now gets even more premium goodies.

The Creta facelift was spied undisguised in April 2018 and here’s what has changed in the updated compact SUV: 2018 Hyundai Creta Facelift Spied Undisguised

Hyundai Creta Facelift: Engines and Variants 

There are no mechanical changes and the Creta carries forward the same 1.6-litre petrol (123PS/151Nm) and diesel engines (128PS/260Nm) along with the 1.4-litre diesel unit (90PS/220Nm). While a 6-speed manual is standard, the 1.6-litre engines come with an optional 6-speed automatic.
