As had anticipated a few weeks ago, Hyundai India introduced the SUV guy, global brand. It is of Creta, starting from platform nievo i20 it will be sold in several markets. Maybe you get to us? Very possibly.
Although quite some time that Hyundai is selling in some markets ix25 SUV, was not considered a product global. Some days ago, the South Korean brand will unveil to the world the same product, but with its international name: Creta.
Take inspiration from the famous Greek island, but depending on the brand, also seeks roots in the word "creative" for his "adventurer and explorer spirit" as the press release says. To give you a reference, the Creta is the younger brother of Tucson, and take the platform and some mechanical components of the new i20 produced in India, as well as the Kia Soul.
It will be produced at the plant in Chennai, India, which also manufactured the Grand i10 and i20, i20 addition to the Indian market. It measures 4,270 mm long, 1,780 mm wide, 1,630 mm high, and its wheelbase is 2,590 millimeters. Recall that the Creta and is manufactured in China, but under the name ix25 in the plant-Yueda-Kia Dongfeng.
For Hyundai Creta, the brand promises several mechanical in the Indian market, with main emphasis on gasoleras, very popular in the land of sacred cows. There are two common rail turbodiesel CRDi with 1.4 or 1.6 liter engine, which in the case of 1.6 has variable geometry turbo and 128 hp. Iran associated with manual or automatic transmissions, both with six gears.
In the naphtha universe will one option, known VTVT 1.6 Dual 123 mated to a six-speed manual gearbox hp, as seen in the Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, or Cerato in our market, for example. Traction in all cases be front and there are no plans, at least not for now permanent all-wheel drive options.
Detailed equipment by Hyundai for Creta claim to be complete enough for the segment where it will compete. Depending on the chosen level, you can choose LED daytime running lights, leather upholstery, alloy wheels 17 "diamond-navigation system, touch screen 5" access system and keyless Smart Key, automatic climate control with outlets air to the rear seats, multifunction steering wheel, ABS brakes, traction and stability control, hill start assistance, backup camera, audio system with 1 GB of internal memory, and front, side and curtain airbags.
At the moment only it is talking about marketing Creta in the Indian market, but it is known that from there exported to various markets worldwide. Knowing that from India and we get products such as Hyundai Grand i10 and i10, it would not be unreasonable to think of the Hyundai Creta as the next novelty to reach us from there in late 2016 or 2015. I wish the "crystal ball Autoblog" is well clean.
