Hyundai Creta Facelift 2024

The Hyundai Creta Facelift features a large front grille with 3 vertical and horizontal slats. It has LED DRLs attached at the front and its width extends across the entire front body. Then there are the square-shaped LED headlamp units with a double cube shape inside for low and high beam projection. Below the grille is the rectangular unit which is the ADAS radar, and the bumpers are made of skid plates. The side profile remains simple with body creases, black roof rails, and new 18-inch alloy wheels. The rear features continuous L-shaped LED taillights, a shark fin antenna at the top, a single-tip exhaust on non-turbo models, and a dual-tip exhaust on turbo models.

The new Creta Facelift features two 10.25-inch displays – one for the infotainment system and the other for the digital instrument cluster. The design of the dashboard has changed because the dual screens are independent. The vertical position on the sides of the air conditioning vents remains the same and features a 4-spoke steering wheel similar to the one found on the Tucson. The center console has seat ventilation and heating buttons, an Audi-like gear lever, a rotary dial for driving modes, two cup holders a manual parking brake for the lower trims, and an electric parking brake for the upper trims.

Additionally, you have two USB-C ports on the front and back to quickly charge your phone. The front seats are electrically adjustable while the rear seats can be reclined according to your comfort. The rear seats feature a 60:40 split, multiple color options for ambient lighting, a huge panoramic sunroof at the top, and continue to have an 8-speaker Bose Premium sound system.

From the outside, the Grand Vitara has a bold appearance. Up front, it has three-cube NEXA LED DRLs, and below them are square-shaped LED headlights. The front grille is huge with a curved 'n' pattern and chrome around the grille. The fenders are made of synthetic skid plate and the hood features cuts and creases that enhance its aggressive appearance. The side profile has creases, slim wheel arches, 17-inch alloy wheels, chrome on the window belt lines, and non-working gray roof rails. Moving to the rear, the LED taillights look similar to those found on the Jeep Meridian, but they are not connected due to the Suzuki logo between them. There is a C-shaped protrusion with a reverse light indicator and straight creases.

Inside, the Grand Vitara features a 9-inch infotainment system placed above the air conditioning vents, and the air conditioning vents on the sides are placed horizontally. It features the option of a two-tone dashboard, as well as leather seat upholstery. The Grand Vitara has a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel. The Grand Vitara has two USB ports front and rear, and buttons for ventilated seats, driver mode, and EV mode. The Grand Vitara also has a heads-up display at the top of the instrument cluster.
