Hyundai Motors Unveils ix25 Second-Gen at Auto Shanghai 2019
Hyundai Motors took the curtains off the second-gen ix25 SUV just after the official debut of Hyundai Venue on 17th April 2019. The Indian version of ix25 is commonly known as Creta, both being considered as identical twins. The second-gen Creta (ix25) is expected to make its debut in India by 2020.
It will feature the new design theme which has already been enclosed in the upcoming Venue by Hyundai Motors India. As per the norms of Bharat Emission VI, new Creta will be available to the Indian customers in the 1.5-litre diesel and 1.5-litre petrol variants as the company plans to ditch the 1.4-litre, 1.6-litre petrol, and 1.6-litre diesel options. The new range of engines will comply with the norms of BS-VI and will most probably churn out about 115Hp. The company also plans to install these engines in the upcoming models of Hyundai such as the Verna facelift.
The upcoming Creta will feature bumper-mounted headlamps and C-shaped LED DRLs that will be split into two. It will also feature a heavy front grille and the rear will completely change for the upcoming Hyundai Car. Hyundai has also made some changes in the interiors making them look a bit muscular with a sharp shoulder line. For those who go for the steering wheel in a car, the upcoming Creta will get a slightly arched steering that will provide better handling to the riders. The gear console of the vehicle will also receive a slight change and will be based on the sports car making it much happening during the manual shift.
Talking about the center of attraction, a large infotainment system will replace the center console. Along with that, it would also include ventilated seats, powered driver seats, and wireless charging. Hyundai’s Internet-connected tech, BlueLink will be offered in the new Creta and will be equipped with an e-Sim that will allow remote access to air conditioning, ignition start/stop, and other features through mobile phone. Under the hood, Hyundai Creta will probably get a new set of 1.5-litre BSVI compliant petrol and diesel engines. Prices for the new Creta have not been decided yet but it is expected to rest between Rs. 10-16Lakhs.
