Thanks dude, couldn't make much from the pics, since you live around the area, keep a watchful eyes. The thunder of Jeep will only make the 2018 Creta much more appealing. I am wondering what additional features will the new facelift get loaded.

Hope the driver involvement/steering feel aspect is taken care of. Also the suspension is better tuned. If Creta improves on these it will be only a real strong jeep fan who will pay 10 lakhs more for the comparable Jeep variant.

How 10 L more?

The Creta is 17 L plus for the top end and the Compass is 23 L plus for the top end 4*2. Compass is in a different league altogether, atleast for now.

I compared the respective manual top end variants with 6 airbags. Remember that Creta has other features too that's missing in the jeep top end. When I checked the difference was around 10 lakhs. Creta already has slightly more spacious interiors. Let me know if I am mistaken here.

Hyundai had better spend some time kitting the Creta out with features; its cheaper siblings have some really cool stuff (e.g. Verna & its ventilated seats + auto-opening boot). The Creta has been around for a long time and needs serious updates.

It's a facelift buddy. The platform won't change.

For a layman, this facelift wont make a significant difference unless they add some missing features. I feel these will be added:

1) Android auto and Apple carplay (already there in the current gen. The initial batch didn't have them).
2) Auto wipers/headlights.
3) All 4 disc brakes.
4) DTE, instantaneous fuel economy.
5) Cruise control.
6) Sunroof (doubtful)
7) Ventilated seats (again doubtful. Can push the price even further).
8) 60:40 rear seat (Hyundai will be least interested in that).

Wish they work on the gear ratios, steering and most importantly those horrific brakes but I feel these wont be touched. A redesigned bumper, LED tail lights and new grill. Somehow cosmetic changes are more important than mechanical changes here :Frustrati. Exterior wise If Hyundai is coming with the same car like the one in the picture, then I am happy with my current car :D.

Instead of above features, I would be more happy to see Automatic option being made available in SX(O) variant - 6 airbags, ESC, VSM and HAC.

I sincerely hope, Hyundai fixes this for petrol and diesel automatic buyers (they missed out on Diesel automatic in SX(0) in Verna).

+1. Totally agree that Hyundai should fix Creta top-end variant's screwed-up specs. It was fine a bunch of years ago when they didn't have a tangible competition, but Jeep Compass and its immense success should be an eye opener for Hyundai. (from a pricing point of view, that is).

I think not launching Verna diesel SX(O) AT was a deliberate decision they took to prevent cannibalizion of Elantra diesel top spec - with the same engine+transmission there would have been hardly any difference between Elantra and new Verna in their top-spec diesel AT avatars. Although team bhp's official Verna review is optimistic about Diesel SX(O) AT launch soon enough, I have my serious doubts about that happening (at least until Elantra diesel get a new engine) :Frustrati

Exactly. Jeep Compass is in a different class altogether. No way Creta can match that. If I were to buy a Creta , I would not mind paying even 10 lakhs extra and buying a Jeep. And I am not even a Jeep fan or anything. BTW, facelift Crtea's front end looks even less SUVish.

Doubt the Creta will get ventilated seats. For some reason Hyundai seems bull headed wrt to this feature. A 32 lakh OTR Tucson does not get it. So they are pampering the sedans and leaving out the SUVs as they seem to think they sell by themselves. :Frustrati:

Also not sure of their automatic strategy for the top spec SX(O) diesel. They seem to give the diesels in automatic top spec only on the Elantra and Tucson. It's high time the Elantra gets the 2 ltr diesel or if will just fade away like the Santa Fe.

Would love if Jeep can surprise them with a 1.6 ltr top spec diesel automatic.

Way in the world would they not give the consumer the choice of safety and convenience in one package ?

It's really difficult to expect anything out of Hyundai these days. They always throw in a surprise (not always a pleasant one). Also, they seem to be following different strategies for their hatch/sedan and SUVs. They know India is SUV crazy and they are trying to maximize profits by leaving out features.

There are at least 2 new Cretas being tested on Yercaud roads for the past 3 days. It's quiet tricky to shoot photos on the ghat road. The front grill is the same as the new Verna Will try to get the front view as and when possible.
