2022 Hyundai Creta Facelift: What Is New?

The second-gen Hyundai Creta available in India already looks stunning. But 2022 Hyundai Creta facelift takes the style quotient a notch higher. Its front fascia resembles that of the new Hyundai Tucson. It gets an all-new grille, which Hyundai calls 'Parametric Jewel' grille. Additionally, there are 'Parametric Jewel' DRLs, which seamlessly integrate with the grille. The headlamp cluster has been redesigned and so has been the front bumper. Overall, the front looks very butch in the design sketch. We are expecting the production-spec model to have a similar muscular character. There are mild tweaks to the rear as well, mainly the taillamp cluster.
