In a single teaser photo on Hyundai’s official Facebook page, the Creta is proclaimed as a “perfect partner to your lifestyle.” First introduced in India, it is now drawing popularity in other developing countries.

Considering the design, the Creta apparently wears Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language like other Hyundai’s models. The front is dominated by three chrome-plated horizontal slats and a pair of sharp headlights.

Moreover, this front’s design is also combined with the sophisticated rear’s design that makes this new compact crossover look like a “baby Tucson”.

Though it is uncertain about which engines will be available for the local market. In other markets, the Creta offers a choice between a 1.6-liter CRDi VTG engine with 126 hp and a 1.6-liter Dual VTVT gasoline mill with 121 hp. The available transmissions are a 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic.


Besides, a 1.4-liter CRDI engine that has 89 hp and 220 Nm of torque is solely available for the 6-speed manual transmission.

By bringing in the Creta for Manila International Auto Show (MIAS), Hyundai will be a great rival in the 2017 MIAS and surely, will make this upcoming show more exciting.
