Hyundai will unveil the new generation of SUVs at the forthcoming Auto Expo 2020. In the run-up to its global debut, the SUV was spied on Delhi paths, testing on its last leg. The Hyundai Creta seven-seater has been spied on for the first time in India. The photos confirm the specifications of the 7-seat Crete we mentioned earlier when we announced that the 7-seat Crete is supposed to have a specific name.
- 7-seater Creta has elongated rear-end and unusual tail-lights.
- One of the few changes on the front of the current grill
- Arriving in late 2021 expected
Behind the thick camouflage mask, the SUV’s revised front grille and silhouette can be seen in exclusive ETAuto spy shots. The SUV will be launched by mid-March 2020 with major design improvements relative to the existing iteration. It looks like a bigger brother of the Venue SUV that introduced a new design language from Hyundai Motor.

Hyundai Creta seven-seater exterior details confirmed
New spy photos reveal that the 7-seater variant of Hyundai Creta is longer than the 5-seater edition. Much of the length added can be found after the rear tire, which is where the third row is put inside.
Fresh wraparound tail lamps – not the dual set-up found on the 5-seater Creta – a reworked rear bumper, and a wider rear quarter glass all differentiate the 5-seater and 7-seater models of Hyundai’s SUV. The spied model also boasts the same alloy wheels as the regular Creta.
At the front, the grid is composed of studs instead of slats. Apart from these changes, the exterior of the 5-seat and 7-seat Crete is very identical, from the roof rails to the front door panels. Front parking sensors can also be viewed.
Hyundai Creta seven-seater interior details confirmed
Spy shots don’t show much inside the 7-seater Creta, but what we do see is a digital instrument panel, a wide 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and an auto day/night inside the rearview mirror.
We know that there will be three rows of seats, plus more kits than the already well-equipped 5-seater Creta – in-car communication software, panoramic sunroof, 6 airbags, tyre pressure control, LED DRLs, leather upholstery and more.
Hyundai Creta seven-seater engine and gearbox details
Both models of the Crete would share the same engine and gearbox options. 140hp, 1.4-litre turbo-oil with manual and dual-clutch auto options and 115hp, 1.5-liter petrol and diesel engine options (both with automatic gearbox options) are expected to be available.
Hyundai Creta seven-seater launch details
Planned to arrive in Hyundai showrooms by the end of next year, the Hyundai Creta 7-seater would cost a premium over the 5-seater edition. This means that they will face competition from MG Hector Plus, Tata Gravitas, the next-generation Mahindra XUV500 and the 7-seater Jeep Compass. “As read and reported by *AutoCarIndia* ”.
