Hyundai has teased the upcoming Creta facelift SUV through several images, which revealed the front and rear profiles of the car as well as the dashboard. The front profile comes heavily updated compared to the outgoing SUV. It features a larger and more crafted-looking front grille that is similar to the current Hyundai Venue. Also, the headlamps and LED daytime running light motif have been changed. The LED headlamps look sharper and sleeker than now and are positioned vertically, while there is a sleek LED bar located at the edge of the bonnet. The sharp creases on the bonnet too are visible. Moving to the back, the design of the taillights and tailgate has been updated. The SUV now features a sleek LED bar running horizontally through the centre of the tailgate and connecting the redesigned squarish LED taillights.

Moving inside the cabin, the new Hyundai Creta SUV promises a wide range of changes. The dashboard layout has been changed subtly yet significantly. It gets a larger touchscreen infotainment system at the centre of the dashboard. The AC vents too come updated and horizontally positioned flanking the centre screen. The car is expected to get a fully digital instrument cluster with a large display. What the teaser image suggests is that Hyundai has inclined towards offering more touch-based control panels rather than the conventional push control buttons. This strategy certainly enhances the premium quotient of the SUV. Expect the cabin to get more features compared to the current model. The auto company has hinted that among the interesting features, there will be a 360-degree camera.
