One of the main launches of the year, the new Hyundai Creta 2022 has already ended one of its secrets by revealing what the 2nd generation compact SUV will look like. The model, who kindly shared the photos she took from Stefano Saraceni’s @carsbysfs profile on Instagram, appeared on the streets without any camouflage and recorded parts of the ad.
The first image you see above is the one that confirms first hand what has been developed. motor1.com: The Hyundai Creta 2022 produced in Brazil will have a different look from the Chinese variant, adopting a design very close to the Russian version. The grille has a similar format to the generation still available at national dealerships as on the Russian Cretan, but with one difference: the Russian variant will eliminate the separate air intake at the top, while the national Cretan will reposition it at the bottom. , next to the nameplate.

Another part that has changed is the bumper, which, while keeping the “mouth” in gray plastic, adopts a larger air intake. This new format also led to a change by increasing the size of the fog lights. Otherwise, the headlights will continue surrounded by three thin lines of LEDs.
One of the photos shows the back a bit. The angle does not allow us to see the entire rear, just enough to confirm that the flashlights will be the same as the Russian model, and it comes out of the bar that goes through the entire tailgate. The bumper will have a very wide air passage, and Hyundai’s Brazilian division will use a silver paint instead of a dark color, at least in the sighted version.
At launch, the national Hyundai Creta will continue with the 166 hp and 20.5 kgfm 2.0 aspirated engine, which always equips the Piracicaba (SP) model with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Production of the 130 hp and 16.5 kgfm 1.6 should be discontinued, replaced by the 1.0 turbo (same as the HB20) with 120 hp and 17.5 kgfm, so that the car meets the new emissions standards of Proconve 7.
The launch of the new Hyundai Creta 2022 is scheduled for the last half of the year only in Piracicaba (SP). Meanwhile, the manufacturer is already working on a restyling for the global version, which, as the first observations show, should take inspiration from the current Cretan generation. The launch is scheduled to begin in China next year.
