Different vehicles will be unveiled at the 2020 Auto Expo. Hyundai Motors, one of India's leading car manufacturers, will be showcasing the 2020 Hyundai Creta's exterior design at the Auto Expo on February 6, 2020. Bollywood actor and brand ambassador of Hyundai, Shahrukh Khan, will be launching Hyundai Creta in 2020 on that day's global debut.
Hyundai announced that the AutoExpo is not going to launch the SUV. The exterior concept will be presented, much the same as it was with the Hyundai Aura. Hyundai wants to keep the segment-defining SUV's interiors as a mystery. In March 2020, it will announce the same before the vehicle's official launch. Hyundai announced the launch by the middle of March.
Hyundai's mid-size SUV brand had long enjoyed the monopoly on the Indian market. Nevertheless, the market was heated up by the recent arrival of MG Hector and the Kia Seltos. Hyundai is trying to counter it by launching the Hyundai Creta second-gen. The 2020 Mahindra XUV500 and Chinese car manufacturers such as Haima Automobile and Great Wall Motors are other rivals in the fray.
The design of the second-gen Hyundai Creta is not a new one, as it is based on the Hyundai i25 that was revealed in China in 2019. The Hyundai Creta could come with India-specific features that include a new set of alloy wheels and an innovative grille design.
The SUV will retain the designs of the headlamp and tail light. Other features available on the Hyundai i25 will be available on the Hyundai Creta 2020, including the 10.25-inch touchscreen info system, the distinctive wheel arches and the panoramic sunroof.
Most likely, Hyundai will borrow the engine configurations on the Kia Seltos. Therefore, one can expect the 1.4L turbo-petrol engine of the Kia Seltos GT-Line on the Hyundai Creta 2020.
In March, the mid-size SUV could be launched. Pricing expected should be between Rs 10 and 16 lakhs.
