The facelifted Hyundai Creta has launched in South Africa. See pricing below…


The refreshed line-up comprises three derivatives, each with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine producing 84 kW and 144 Nm of torque. The petrol motor can be had with a six-speed manual gearbox or Hyundai’s IVT unit. A duo of trim grades are on offer. These include Premium, which is available with a manual and IVT, and the Executive, which is exclusively available with the IVT. The South Korean carmaker claims average fuel consumption figures of 6.5 L/100 km (manual) and 6.3 L/100 km (IVT). 

The manual variant has a claimed 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 12 seconds. Equipped with the IVT, the Creta completes the sprint 0.2 seconds quicker than the manual model. All derivatives have a top speed of 170 km/h.


All variants are equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto software, manual air conditioning, reverse-view camera and park distance sensors. Halogen headlamps and 17-inch wheels can be found across the range. 

Among other items, the Executive model upgrades to LED daytime-running lights and keyless entry. Artificial leather seats and wireless smartphone charging is also present in this model. 

As standard, all models ship with Hyundai’s four-year/60 000 km service plan. The firm’s seven-year/200 000 km warranty is also included in the pricing.
