Hyundai Creta N Line teased, India launch could be soon – might get aggressive design elements
Hyundai Creta, the second highest selling SUV in India after Tata Nexon, might soon get the much anticipated performance oriented N Line trim as Hyundai has teased the same on its Instagram page. With this addition, Hyundai might aim to clinch the first place from Nexon.
As Hyundai is already on the verge of launching the Venue facelift and its N Line trim in India the news about Creta N Line does come as a surprise. While the Korean maker was already seen testing the car overseas, the launch wasn’t imminent at least this year.
But with the teaser flaunted, we can expect a much sooner launch. The picture was posted by Hyundai Brazil on its Instagram page. So, the launch could first take place in Brazil followed by other countries including India.
While there aren’t much details about the upcoming sporty SUV other than the N Line badge on its grille on the teaser, we can be rest assured that it won’t be a true-blooded N Line car. It will just have the traits of the i20 N Line launched early this year.
Also, 1 more confirmation is that the upcoming N Line trim won’t be based on the facelifted Creta sold in the Indonesian markets but on the version sold here in India.
It could be based on the recently launched Knight Edition as the car has some sporty bits like a new glossy black grille with red inserts, glossy black skid plates at the front and the rear, C-pillar garnish, side sill garnish, roof rails, ORVMs, and shark fin antenna.
The Knight Edition also gets blackened tail lamp inserts, body-coloured door handles, dark chrome finish to the emblem, red front brake callipers, Knight Edition emblem at the rear, and dark metal coloured alloy wheels.
The patent images released previously do give us a glimpse of the sporty SUV. The front and rear bumpers could be taller featuring Hyundai N’s chequered flag. The front grille could be as aggressive as the upcoming Tucson whose pictures were revealed recently.
There could be updates to the suspension and exhaust like what was done to the i20 N Line. Finally, the SUV might get new alloy wheels, N Line upholstery with red stitching, and aluminum paddles.
