The second-gen Creta gets completely redesigned styling along with new engines and added features

Hyundai launched the second-gen Creta at a starting price of Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It comes with a new design from the ground up along with added features and a set of new engines. Let’s see how the second-gen SUV fares against its predecessor. 

Dimensions: 

 

Old

New

Length

4270mm

4300mm (+30mm)

Width

1780mm

1790mm (+10mm)

Height

1665mm

1635mm (-30mm)

Wheelbase

2590mm

2610mm (+20mm)

Boot Space

400L

433L (+33L)

  • Thanks to the new underpinnings, the 2020 Creta is longer and wider. It also has a longer wheelbase and a bigger boot space.
  • The older Creta is taller.

Exterior: 

The two Cretas are worlds apart when it comes to the exterior styling. While the old Creta looks conventional, the new one has a polarising design. Up front, the 2020 Creta features a large cascading grille flanked by bumper-mounted LED headlamps and C-shaped three-part LED DRLs. The first-gen Creta, on the other hand, featured upswept headlamps flanking the cascading grille. 

From the side, both the SUVs feature a near-similar silhouette. That said, while the new Creta looks more muscular from the sides with flared wheel arches, the older Creta had a clean profile with a sharp shoulder line running across its length. The front and rear fenders are a bit curvaceous compared to the boxy ones of the older model. Both the SUVs feature 17-inch alloys but with different designs. 

Similar to the front, the rear design of the two SUVs are also poles apart. Where the older continues to be conventional-looking, the new Creta replicates the front design with an identical C-shaped split element for the tail lamp. Overall, where the design of old Creta was simple and cleaner and easily likeable, the new Creta looks flashy and radical. 

Interior:

The 2020 Creta also gets a redesigned cabin layout. The top-mounted 7-inch touchscreen infotainment flanked by AC vents have been replaced by a landscape-oriented 10.25-inch touchscreen unit which sits below the central AC vents. The AC vents have also been redesigned and get a brushed aluminium insert making it look premium. It also features a new flat-bottom steering wheel. 

Features:

Safety: 

Both the SUVs get dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors and front seatbelt reminder as standard. Higher variants get features like side and curtain airbags, traction control, electronic stability control, hill launch assist and ISOFIX child seat anchors.

Exterior:

  • The 2020 Creta gets a panoramic sunroof instead of the regular sunroof in the older car.
  • Up front, conventional projector halogen headlamps have been replaced by LED units. The fog lamps continue to be halogen units.
  • At the back, both the SUVs get LED tail lamps.

Interior:

  • While the older Creta had a conventional analogue instrument cluster, the new Creta features a semi-digital instrument cluster with a 7-inch colour screen.

  • The 2020 Creta gets an electronic parking brake with auto-hold in the higher variants instead of a conventional manual pull-type hand brake.
  • It also gets an 8-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat instead of a 6-way adjustable seat seen in the first-gen model.

  • The 2020 Creta gets multiple driving modes, auto air purifier, traction control modes, paddle shifters and a tyre pressure monitoring system, ambient lighting, outside rearview mirrors with puddle lamp and reclinable rear seat with headrest cushions over the previous model.  

Infotainment & Connectivity:

  

  • The new Creta comes with a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system instead of a 7-inch unit seen on the older car. Although both cars get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, it is only the 2020 Creta which offers connected features with voice commands. 
  • Thanks to the connected tech, it gets remote start/stop, cabin pre-cooling, remote access to the air purifier and vehicle location tracking through mobile phone and smartwatch app.
  • The 2020 Creta also gets a premium Bose sound system which was not on offer in the older Creta.
