Hyundai Creta facelift unveil in November 2021


The Hyundai Creta is all set to get a facelift in the Indonesian market, as the carmaker will debut the refreshed SUV at the GIIAS 2021 motor show (taking place from 11-21 November). The Creta facelift will with it updated styling as well as a longer features list.

  • The Creta facelift will get ADAS and updated BlueLink safety features
  • It’ll get Tucson inspired styling
  • India launch set for second half of 2022

Hyundai Creta facelift: new feature and interiors

One of the big talking points for the Creta facelift is the inclusion of the Advance Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) on the top two trims of the SUV. These ADAS features will likely make it to the Indian model as well, that will likely launch next year, as other mid-size SUVs like the MG Astor already offer it.

Another addition will be that the facelifted Creta will also get updated BlueLink connected car tech, that will be accompanied with new safety features like stolen vehicle tracking, stolen vehicle immobilization and a valet parking mode, all of which will be accessible via your phone.

Besides this, the features list will also include a panoramic sunroof, a premium Bose sound system, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster (like the one seen in the Alcazar in India) and a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support.

There are also unconfirmed reports that suggest the Creta for Indonesia will be offered with both a five- and a seven-seat layout. Though, unlike the Alcazar seven-seat derivative of the Creta offered in India, the Indonesian model won’t have an extended wheelbase. This means the additional seats will be smaller and fit in the boot of the regular 5-seat Creta (similar to the layout of the 7-seat Kia Sonet sold there).

Hyundai Creta facelift: what else do we know?

In term of styling, the mid-cycle update for the Hyundai Creta will get new front-end, more akin to the one seen on the new-gen Tucson. This means, the refreshed Creta will get a new 'parametric grille' design, with a more rectangular headlamps, positioned slightly lower than before and new LED DRLs flanking it. At the rear too, the facelift is expected to get some tweaks and it will likely look similar to the mildly updated Creta for Russia.

Under the hood, Hyundai is likely to introduce the Creta facelift for Indonesia with a solitary 1.5-litre petrol engine and we don't expect a diesel to join the line-up in that market.

Hyundai Creta facelift: expected India launch

Seeing as the new Creta launched in India only a year back in 2020, it is currently still a bit early for a facelift. Hyundai will introduce the refreshed Creta in Indonesia first, with the India launch expected only in the latter half of 2022. The updated Creta for India is expected to feature similar design and features to the model for Indonesia.
