Hyundai has revealed the facelifted 2022 Creta at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS). The SUV features quite a few tweaks and updates–changes in design, features, and improved safety–and it comes in four variants: Active, Trend, Style, and Prime.


The new Creta features a parametric jewel-pattern grille flanked by integrated DRLs on both sides. As for the lights, the car comes with dual-beam projector headlamps at the front and an LED combination light at the rear. 

The Creta comes with a two-tone (Black and Cognac Brown) interior that features either a woven or leather or embroidered-leather upholstery, depending on the variant. Upfront, the dashboard features a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, and behind it is either a 3.5-inch segmented LCD cluster (in the Active and Trend variant) or a 10.25-inch TFT LCD cluster (in the Style and Prime variant). As for infotainment and connectivity, the car comes with an 8-inch touchscreen display (compatible with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto), 2 front USBs, BOSE premium sound system, and Bluelink connected car services (except in the base variant).

Other interior features include ambient mood lamp, cup-holder light, cooling glove-box, and personal LED lamps (offered in the top variant only). 


The 2022 Creta-facelift model is powered by a Smartstream G1.5 MPI engine–mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT)–that generates 84.4 kW of power at 6300 rpm and a torque of 143.8 Nm at 4500 rpm. 

To ensure optimal power use and better handling, the SUV comes with paddle shifters, cruise control, driving modes ( Eco, Comfort, Smart, Sport), traction mode, and electric parking brake (EPB) with auto-hold.
