Hyundai recently launched the new Hyundai Creta, it brings a new set of features, a totally different design from the older generation, and new engine shared with Kia Seltos. While Hyundai Creta is very popular in our market, and it also even competes with the likes of XUV 500. But if you strictly want a 7-seater you might have to look away from the Hyundai Creta.
But we have some good news for you. Hyundai was working on a 7-Seater, longer variant of the Creta with 3-set of rows. And today we have first spy shots of the same coming all the way from Korea. Let us talk looks since we only have one picture which shows the front and side profile of the car. First off, the grille is different from the 5-seater Hyundai Creta, it gets Chrome studded grille which looks more upmarket. We can also spot two front parking sensors, which are not available in 5-seater Creta.
We can also see a rather different design for the front hood, pretty sure it will be changed in production. Talking about the side profile, this is where it differentiates itself from the regular Creta. It is visibly longer from the rear, and even wheelbase appears to be longer. The Alloy wheels have the same design but they don’t get the dual-tone diamond-cut finish. The overhang also appears to be a bit longer than regular Creta.
The 7-seater will continue to offer the same set of engines. It will have three engine options, 1.5L MPi petrol which makes 115ps of power and 144Nm of torque, a 1.5l U2 CRDi diesel engine which makes 115ps of power and 250Nm of torque and a turbocharged 1.4L GDi petrol engine which makes 140ps of power and also 242Nm of torque. These engines get multiple gearbox options including 6-speed manual gearbox, Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) automatic, 6-speed Torque converter and a 7-Speed DCT gearbox.
Though the 7-seater variant of the Hyundai Creta is still far away from coming to India, it will provide a good competition when launched, as Creta already has a good fan following in India. It will compete with MG Hector Plus and Tata Gravitas. The price can be increased by a couple of lakh from the 5-seater variant.
