Hyundai Creta 7 Seater – Did You Know These Details About Upcoming 7 Seater Hyundai?

Will the upcoming Creta 7 seater bear only extra pair of seats or is there more to it? Read on.

Hyundai Creta 7 Seater Launch

With the massive gap in the MPV or 7-seat vehicle segment in the country, Hyundai Motors is looking forward to bring its new Creta 7-seater SUV to cash in on the dearth of practical 7-seaters. It all started with the spying of a camouflaged, elongated Creta on South Korean roads. It is slated to launch in India somewhere in January 2021.

Looks

Based on the existing 5-seat Creta, the extended version is likely to boast similar styling albeit few tweaks to lend it a unique appearance. It will get a revised grille with chrome appliqués in place of the standard horizontal slats. From the spied images of Creta 7-seater, it is clear that Hyundai has not gone for the short cut of just adding the third-row in the same setup; instead, it has elongated the wheelbase to accommodate the extra pair. It means better space for all occupants.

Even the sloping roofline of the Creta is gone now – it was required so that the third-row passengers could get enough headroom. However, the omission of the slope has resulted in a boxy appearance of the car from rear-end instead of the crossover look it had earlier. It is likely to get redesigned tail lamps and a new alloy wheel design.

Interior

Expect the 7 seater Hyundai Creta interior to be the same as its existing sibling except for the additional row. It could get a different colour theme for the cabin, though. The interior of the current Hyundai Creta look premium and tick most of the boxes you need for a comfortable and convenient SUV. If Hyundai surprises us at the launch, that’s an altogether different thing.

Engine

The Creta 7-seater is most likely to borrow the engine options of the Hyundai Creta SUV. It is expected to be equipped with all three engine options – 1.5-litre petrol, 1.4-litre turbo petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel. The 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated one develops 115PS and 144Nm, whereas the turbo petrol engine produces 140PS and 242Nm. The diesel pumps out 115PS and 250Nm. The turbo motor gets only 7-speed DCT option. Rest of the two engines get a 6-speed manual transmission as standard with a choice of CVT with petrol and torque converter with diesel.

Features

Hyundai cars are always laden with features and the same is true for the Creta. We expect similar feature on the 7-seat version too. It includes LED headlamps and tail lamps, power-adjustable driver’s seat, panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats and wireless charging. Moreover, other features such as a 7-inch driver’s display and a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility are also expected to remain intact.

Although Creta is loaded to the brim, it misses out on features like a powered tailgate, heads-up display and a 360-degree camera. With the 7-seat version, these features become all the more important.

Safety

The new Creta 7-seater is expected to come with safety features such as ABS with EBD, six airbags, front and rear parking sensors, to name a few.

Competition

When launched in 2021, the Hyundai Creta 7-seater SUV will be locking horns with upcoming Tata Gravitas, MG Hector Plus and Nissan Magnite.

Price

The Hyundai Creta 7 seater 2020 price in India is likely to be around Rs 15 lakh, ex-showroom. The current Creta is priced in the range of Rs 9.99 – 17.20 lakh (ex-showroom).
