The all-new Creta gets a completely new design, in tune with Hyundai's 'Sensual Sportiness' design language. The front end becomes much bolder with a big trapezoidal grille and low-set headlamps, which seem to be in fashion currently. Above the headlamps, sit the strips of LED daytime running lights and below, the fog lamps are placed. The silhouette becomes a little more SUV like, with a pronounced stance and the rear too is completely new. But we would be remiss if we don't say that the overall look of the Creta has divided opinions amongst the audience.
The interior of the SUV has been revamped completely. The 1.5-litre models get a dual-tone black and beige colour scheme, while the 1.4-litre turbo models get an all-black colour scheme. Talking about the dashboard, the new Creta gets a completely new unit and has a minimalist feel to it. You also get a sense of space, even with the dark colours, thanks to the new design.
The centrepiece is the new 10.24-inch touchscreen infotainment unit. The screen is capacitive and quite intuitive as well. The visibility is sharp and there are multiple options in terms of customising the widget options. Plus, the new Hyundai Creta is also a connected car, like the Venue and the top models will have Hyundai's BlueLink connectivity technology. Under the infotainment unit are the controls for climate control and to be honest, they look a little underwhelming. Then, there is a small cubbyhole which has the USB ports and a wireless charging tray.

Top-spec models also get a new panoramic sunroof on offer as well along with ambient lighting, an 8-speaker Bose audio system and a small digital display on the arm rest for the rear passengers. The display offers controls for the air purifier, which is a neat touch. The SUV also gets smartwatch app connectivity, ventilated seats, electric parking brake, ambient lighting tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and a reversing camera.
