2020 Hyundai Creta Official Sketches Released

Hyundai has just released the official sketches of the next-generation Creta. Based on these official sketches, it’s safe to say that it looks very similar to the ix25. The 2020 Hyundai Creta borrows the overall design from the ix25 but has the criss-cross grille pattern like the Venue.

The next-gen Creta could get the connected car technology for remote app-based features like:

  • start/stop
  • lock/unlock
  • windows opening/closing

The 2020 Creta will borrow the 1.5-litre normal petrol engine from the Kia Seltos and it’ll come with a CVT automatic instead of the 6-speed torque converter. The CVT automatic is expected to offer better fuel efficiency.

The 2020 Hyundai Creta will come with a BS6 1.5-litre petrol engine. This is already available in the Kia Seltos. It makes 8PS less power and 7Nm less torque but these should only have a marginal drop in performance and shouldn’t affect everyday driving.

The biggest change will be with the automatic transmission. The gas-guzzler 6-speed torque converter is getting replaced with a more efficient CVT automatic. In recent years, Hyundai has also removed torque converter automatic option from Grand i10 and Xcent as the newer Nios and Aura come with 5-speed AMT automatic. Similarly, the Elite i20 also has a torque converter, which was replaced with a CVT automatic.

In terms of diesel engine specs, the smaller 1.4-litre diesel engine could be discontinued. The 1.6-litre diesel engine could be replaced with a smaller 1.5-litre version, which just like the newer and smaller petrol engine, makes a bit less power and torque. It has 13PS of less power and 10Nm of less torque. With this engine, the torque converter could continue as it’s better at handling the so much torque from a turbocharged diesel engine.
