Here's what's new in the 2023 Hyundai Creta: features & engines

The 2023 Creta will get RDE-compliant engines and several new features and safety systems.

The Hyundai Creta facelift isn’t coming to India anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean that the popular SUV won’t receive an update for the 2023 model year. 

While the 2023 Creta will not sport the Tucson-inspired exterior design, it will be equipped with several new features and safety systems. It is said that 6 airbags, ESC, VSM, HAC and height-adjustable front seat belts will be standard across all variants. The SUV will also get ISOFIX and a 60:40 split rear seat. The most notable change though would be the introduction of rear disc brakes and Idle Start / Stop. 

Hyundai will be launching the Creta with RDE-compliant engines. The updated 1.5-litre petrol engine will also be E20 fuel ready.

At present, the Creta is available with a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that makes 113 BHP @ 6,300 rpm and 143.8 Nm @ 4,500 rpm. It is paired with a 6-speed manual and iVT. The SUV also comes with a 1.5-litre diesel engine that puts out 113 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 250 Nm @ 1,500-2,750 rpm. Customers get a choice of a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic with the oil burner. 

The changes that are being made to the engines could affect their overall output.
