Next-gen Hyundai Creta currently under development, based on Kia SP Concept platform

Hyundai is working on the next-gen of the Creta, which may head to India by 2020. The Creta, sold as the ix25 in international markets, has been successful there and this has prompted Hyundai to develop a better version of the existing model. Hyundai has not yet updated the Creta since it was launched in 2015.


The new Creta will share engines with the compact SUV based on the SP Concept.

This is going to change this year as the facelifted Creta will arrive here in mid-2018. It may include some cosmetic changes like a new grille and redesigned front and rear bumpers. Hyundai may also add some new features in the car in order to make it more attractive.

Now, the next-generation Creta will be pinned by a whole new platform with reports indicating that it may share platforms with the Kia SP Concept. It will be powered by BS-VI compliant petrol and diesel engines, currently being developed by Hyundai. Both will first feature on the Kis SP Concept, which will be launched earlier compared to the Creta.


Hyundai India plans to upgrade the Creta facelift with BSVI engines or launches the new generation model by April 2020.

There are sources saying that Hyundai may simultaneously launch the next-generation Creta in both Indian and international markets. When it will be launched, we can expect it to rival the likes of the Jeep Compass, Renault Duster and the soon to be launched Nissan Kicks. Hyundai will hope that the next-gen Creta can cause a stir in the market just like its predecessor did in 2015.
