Hyundai has officially taken the wraps off the Creta Sport in Brazil, but its India launch possibility is unknown.
The Hyundai Creta Sport has been officially revealed in Brazil. It is a sportier version of the Creta facelift that was introduced in Brazil in December 2016. The compact SUV will go on sale in the Brazilian market by around November 2017.
As the name itself suggests, the Hyundai Creta Sport is sportier, feature-loaded and comes with some cosmetic changes. The signature cascading hexagonal grille and the lower bumper gets gloss black finish. Like the facelift, the Creta Sport gets projector headlamps with LED DRLs and horizontally stacked fog lamps. You have the usual body cladding at the sides, however, Hyundai has given the Creta Sport new 17-inch two-tone diamond-cut alloy wheels and blackened ORVM housing. A rear spoiler aids for better aerodynamics, while the LED tail-lights and the gloss black skid plate adds to the style quotient of the SUV.
Inside, the Creta Sport gets an all-black cabin with black leather and fabric seats. A new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is also offered. Under the hood, the Creta Sport continues with the same flex-fuel engine line-up – a 1.6-litre motor with 130 HP offered with a choice of 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearboxes and a 2.0-litre motor with 166 HP offered with a 6-speed automatic gearbox only.
On the safety front, the SUV gets dual front airbags, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), traction control, and Hill-Start Assist. Hyundai hasn’t yet announced prices for the Creta Sport, but it is expected to be in the range of 95,000 and 98,000 Brazilian Real (approximately Rs. 19.64 – 20.29 lakhs).
Back in India, Hyundai is still working on the Creta facelift, so it’s highly unlikely that the Creta Sport will be introduced in India.
