We also get to see a pair of new ORVMs and silver alloy wheels. As for the rear section, with the heavy camouflage and pseudo cladding, there is not much that we can talk about the design and styling, however, we do get a sneak-peek at the taillamps but, they appear to be slightly different from the ones seen on the ix25.

Based on the global spy shots we have seen so far, the India-bound Hyundai Creta is likely to borrow several other styling cues from the ix25, like - the new V-shaped headlamps with integrated LED DRLs and a secondary set of DRLs positioned above. The SUV will also get a new front bumper with sharper lines and a large skid plate as well. The production model is also likely to get sportier alloy wheels, floating roof design, and new rear bumper as well.

Under the hood, the new 2020 Hyundai Creta is expected to get the new BS6 compliant 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, which are likely to debut in the Verna facelift when it arrives sometime next year. Hyundai India might even showcase the SUV at the 2020 Auto Expo.
