However, Hyundai will not be launching the all-new Creta at the Expo. The company will just be showcasing the exterior design of the car while the interiors will still be all covered and blacked out, the same way it did with the Hyundai Aura. The main reason not to showcase the interiors is that Hyundai will reveal more details about the second-gen Creta closer to its launch date, which is somewhere around March 2020.

As far as the design is concerned, the second-gen Hyundai Creta does not get an all-new design. It will be based on the Hyundai ix25 that was revealed in China last year. The India-specific second-gen Creta will get features such as a new set of alloy wheels and a newly designed front grille.

Mechanically, Hyundai is most likely to borrow the engine configurations available on the Kia Seltos for the second-gen Creta. Thus, we can expect the Kia Seltos GT-Line's 1.4L turbo-petrol engine on the new Creta.

The SUV is expected to retain the headlamp and tail-light designs. Other features available on the Hyundai ix25 such as the 10.25-inch touchscreen info system, the distinctive wheel arches, and the panoramic sunroof is also expected to come with the 2020 Hyundai Creta.
