The Hyundai Creta took the market by storm when it was launched three-years ago. India's love for the SUV gave Hyundai Motor India Ltd., huge success. The craze for the SUV appears to be the same even today. Hyundai reports that they have an average of over 10,000 unit bookings every month, and they hint that these numbers may go up in 2020—with the new Hyundai Creta.
The South Korea based auto giant realized the importance of a new generation Hyundai Creta, and therefore gave the existing model mid-cycle updates in may last year. The updates featured cosmetic changes, and interior additions. Making these changes helped maintain the frequency of sales of the current model. This strategy made the Hyundai Creta the second-best selling SUV in the country.
Hyundai is now concentrating on giving the Creta more upgrades and introducing the second generation SUV in the Indian market. Hyundai will bring changes and upgrades to the next generation Creta to cater for the ever-changing needs of customers, and also because of increased competition that includes the Tata Harrier, Nissan Kicks, and soon-to-be launched Kia, Skoda, and Volkswagen SUVs.
Hyundai is aiming to launch the new Creta by the end of 2020, or early 2021. The new Hyundai Creta is expected to arrive as a 7-seater in comparison to the current version (5-seater). It will be bigger than the current model, and may most likely be taller and wider—in order to accommodate more seating, to offer more passenger space, and more boot space. Rumor has it that the new Hyundai Creta will borrow some design elements from the Hyundai Santa Fe. Other changes may include more air-conditioning vents, and a larger infotainment system.
The Hyundai Creta is currently available in 1.6-litre petrol enagines, and, 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre diesel engines. Both petrol and diesel variants offer manual and automatic transmission. The Creta is offered in various colours—Marina Blue, Passion Orange/Phantom Black, Phantom Black, Fiery Red, Stardust, Passion Orange, Sleek Silver, Polar White, and Polar White/Phantom Black. Prices for the Hyundai Creta range between Rs 9.60 lakh and Rs 15.64 lakh (ex-showroom, India).

This move might push Hyundai into the number one position—considering the price bracket of the SUV, and the 'people capacity' expected by the Indian customer.
