Hyundai Creta design renderings revealed
The Hyundai Creta has got the Indian automobile industry all excited for a very long time now. Considering Hyundai’s current crop of vehicles offered, the Creta compact SUV is expected to be a class-leading product which will definitely become one of the best vehicles in its respective segment.
Design of the Creta is based on the company’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy that has already done wonders for the Sonata, Elantra and Verna sedans. Hyundai has long been focussing on giving the Creta big dimensions because the same mantra needs to be followed if a car maker wants to retail a successful product in India.
The Korean car maker has recently released design renderings of the Creta, revealing its overall characteristics. According to Hyundai, the upcoming compact SUV gets a very bold front fascia, a voluminous side profile and a sporty looking rear end. All the features on the front of the SUV are further accentuated with a huge hexagonal front grille, similar to what can be seen on the more premium Santa Fe SUV. The front grille gets three horizontal, bold chrome slats running from one end to the other. The headlights get a twin projector setup, while the fog lamps are placed in a vertical position on the front bumper which also houses skid plates. The A and B pillars of the SUV are blacked out and the whole vehicle gets black body cladding all round to give the Creta proper SUV design cues.
The interiors on the other hand is designed in a way to make it look more airy. Features on offer is expected to be class-leading, much like all the other vehicles coming out from the same stable. These will include a multifunction steering wheel with integrated stereo controls and chrome surrounds for the speedometer and tachometer. The dashboard gets a dual-tone treatment and the air vents will get a metallic accent. According to the drawings, the infotainment system surprisingly will not be a touchscreen unit, but the climate control unit will instead get a touch interface. The rendering also shows two cup holders behind the gear stick, an armrest at the front with possibly a storage compartment and rear air vents as well.
The Hyundai Creta will most likely be launched in India on 21st July 2015 and this date will most definitely be one of the most anticipated ones.
