Hyundai Motors Indonesia recently unveiled the design sketches of the newly-refreshed 2022 Hyundai Creta Facelift. The company also stated that it will serve as a update for the vehicle exclusively for its customers in India by 2022.
The Hyundai Creta is the undisputed leader in India’s SUV market. When the second-gen model debuted in March 2020, its popularity only continued to soar. With its impressive list of standard features along with an exceptionally refined engine at a price point that’s very hard to beat, it’s no surprise monthly sales have been overwhelming.
When the Creta first launched, it gave Hyundai’s sales and market share in India a powerful boost. It was thanks to its current generation model which came with new tech, styling and interior space over what was offered before. It made Hyundai more competitive against other automakers in India’s new car market. The brand is planning some refreshing updates for the next-gen version which will further cement their status as a mainstream player in an already full market.
