News and speculations have been going around about the new Creta. Most of the Indian automotive publications have been posting about Creta's launch date and some are suggesting that Hyundai might actually showcase the new Creta at the Auto Expo. Does anyone have any confirmation on this?

There is reason to believe that the new Creta might be showcased at the upcoming Auto Expo 2020 due to spy shots of a testing vehicle, let's keep our fingers crossed!
A few expectations from the update according to me would be;
1.Bluelink integration
2.An integrated touchscreen panel
3.Full-time 4wheel drive( maybe to rival the jeep compass?)
4. Disc brakes on all 4 corners(1st gen brakes lacked the bite )
5.Panoramic sunroof/moonroof
6.Ventilated seats front and rear(let us all chill)
7.Plush ride (read: pothole eating suspension setup like the current generation Creta)
8. A Dual Clutch Transmission (the venue has it... come on Hyundai!)
9. LED projector headlights( as seen in the picture above)
10. Trickling down of the 1.4 Liter turbo petrol from the Seltos?

A well laid out expectation list @highwaywarrior.
points 1,2,4,7, and 9 have a very high possibility of making it into the Indian spec Hyundai Creta.
I completely agree with you on point 4 as the brakes seemed to have a lot of issues and gave an unnerving feeling while braking from speeds higher than 60 kilometers per hour. As an owner of a Creta, I have experienced lots of issues with the brakes and would definitely want an upgrade in that aspect.
Coming to point 5 about the sunroof, initially, the Creta did not launch with a sunroof but with its first facelift a sunroof was brought in the lineup, maybe we might get a panoramic sunroof after all.
Could anyone confirm about ventilated seats being available on the Creta currently?? I know for a fact that the Hyundai Verna does, in fact, have ventilated front seats. Yes let us all chill, rear-seat ventilation would be more useful that rear AC vents that freeze off your kneecaps majority of the time.
I truly think that 4wheel drive is not the game Hyundai wants to play with the Creta, as this car is an urban sub-compact city dweller, I believe if they do get the 4x4 option the prices of the car will go up by 1-1.5 Lac INR.
One request could be to give the standard car larger profile tires 215mm is what the current model gets, I feel a 235 would give the car more stability.

@Driving Saint
Well yes, it does seem highly unlikely that the 4wheeldrive or AWD version will make it to India but what's the harm in putting it out in the universe, you never know who's watching.😁
Yes, the current variant of the Creta offers front ventilated seats on the range-topping manual model SX(O).
I would love it if the all disc brake Hyundai days are back when i20 and Verna were offered with such good hardware. This is pre-2011-2012 models I am quoting.
Would you happen to have any real-time mileage numbers with your long term use of the Hyundai Creta? The ARAI numbers are above 15km/liter. If fatter rubber is installed by the manufacturer I am sure the fuel figures will drop by a decent margin.
"Kitna deti hai?" literally translates to 'how much does it give?' is the primary concern of a majority of Indian buyers and i think we should look into this aspect with respect to the Creta and the competition. So let's gather some numbers on fuel consumption. The current Creta has 2 diesel and 1 petrol engine option. 1.6D & 1.4D along with a 1.6 Naturally aspirated petrol.

I just took a ride in the Jeep Compass, is it me or does everyone think that the ride on the Compass is stiff.
well after sitting in the Creta for so long I think I am spoilt with the plush damping setup.
I get an overall of 11-12km/liter in the 126hp 1.6 turbo diesel automatic Creta, on highways, I get approximately a 14-15 km/liter average.

Do you think they will give dual tone colour treatment to the creta?
I went to the hyundai showroom to see the venue and that car got the dual tone exterior colours.
Also any new colour options with the new car?

Rear seat comfort on the creta is very adequate, seats also offer decent cushioning, compared to the jeeps seats that seem hard cushioned.
The mg hector does have the max leg space though.

Can we please have some details on the exact dimensions of the creta? I know that the segment is sub 5 meter.
Will there be a longer wheelbase with the 2020 launch?
There are rumours of a floating multi media interface in the new creta, lets hope for a seamless and glitch free user experience.
I personally like physical buttons over a touch screen.

Tires on the hyundai creta are 215/60 R17 along with the diamond cut alloys.
Tyres are rated 'H' meaning they are good upto speeds of 200km/h.
Anyone that has achieved speeds above 180 in the creta?

I feel the creta could do with a bit more power. The 1.6 turbo diesel does a 0-100 sprint in about 11 seconds and churns a decent 123 horse power.
Currently Electric vehicles are doing sub 10 second times.

Creta has held a good after sale value despite few of its short comings.
A 4 year old creta on the used market is still holding 50-55% of its original value.
That is a commendable resale percentage.
Most creta's on the second hand market are around the range of 10 lac rupees.

Here’s an interesting chart I came across-



Hyundai Creta 2020 (ix25)Hyundai Creta(current-gen)Kia Seltos
Length4300mm4270mm4315mm
Width1790mm1780mm1800mm
Height1622mm1665mm1620mm
Wheelbase2610mm2590mm2613mm

The new Creta will definitely look bigger and have more space on the inside compared to the current gen!

thanks, @trailmaker_666 for this useful info I see that the new Creta will be wider and longer than the current-gen. The Creta's height though is being dropped by a large margin maybe that will hunker down the SUV appearance by a bit.
I hope we get a direct rival to the Seltos in the features department.

Will be eagerly waiting for this comparison.
Harrier and jeep compas have the same engine unit so it will be fun to see the difference in fuel efficiency figures.
The jeep compass and tata harrier have the same engine(the 2.0 diesel sourced from fiat) but jeep somehow is claiming a higher figure of 17km/liter as compared to 15km/liter for the harrier. The harrier is also detuned in terms of power when compared to the compass. The Creta claims a figure of 19km/liter with the 1.6 diesel engine but the real-world figures are approximately 30-40% lower for all cars.

Wow, that's an interesting fact. The resale value of the Creta is matching that of the Fortuner in terms of a percentage value. A cheaper cost to own the car would make the Creta even more desirable.

The auto expo is approaching in a few days and I would like to know what other cars are likely to be [email protected]_666 would you happen to have any information with regard to this?
So I have heard the KIA carnival would be launching at the event, I also saw a clip of the bouncing GLE 400d (CBU) at a merc event recently.
Seems like a few more electric cars will be coming into the market this year, the MG has come out with an EV, so have Tata and Mahindra.
I personally really liked the technology used in the new Mercedes c200 that has an EQ boost 48V mild-hybrid system.
Well, it looks like we are the last few generations of the petrol burners, let us burn what's left with caution.

thankyou @Driving Saint for your valuable addition to this forum, hope we can see more such useful information from you in the future. It is amusing to see that the same engine tuned differently in two cars can cause such varying fuel efficiency figures. The jeep compass even though it makes more power returns a better fuel economy than the tata harrier.
Creta tops the fuel figure chart with its smaller engine.
The ARAI figures are done in controlled environments and do not indicate the real-time figures in traffic and highway.
Auto manufacturers should be required to give the fuel figures in real-time situations.

There might also be a new Hyundai Verna and Elantra showcased at the auto expo 2020, look forward to seeing Hyundai's new design philosophy. The Elantra is a promising product but sales have not been up to the mark in the last year, let us see how this new update fairs for the company.
