Hyundai has officially revealed the new Creta N Line SUV. Inspired by the performance of the Korean automakers’ N cars, the N Line gives the consumers a glimpse of what the N’s capabilities are.
The sportier iteration of the popular Creta has been teased over the past few weeks, while pictures of the SUV’s close-to-production form had leaked recently.
The Creta N Line gets unique styling touches inside out, along with minor mechanical upgrades as seen on existing Hyundai N Line portfolio globally. The front bumper is larger and houses a horizontal air vent which has been positioned above the grille which adds to the Creta N Line’s styling. The area between the grille and the headlamps is also finished in dark chrome which makes the grille look wider. The SUV also gets prominent Hyundai N Line badging on the grille. The full LED headlamps seem to be the same units that are found on the standard Creta.
It gets the N badging on the front fenders and darkened mirrors, new side skirts and an all-new design for the 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels with N badging. The roof and the window sills also get darkened bits. The rear fascia gets blacked-out tail lamps and sports a dark chromed faux diffuser that houses twin exhaust tips.
Moving on to the interior, the Creta N Line gets prominent badging on the seats, red stitching on the upholstery, N Line themed gear knob and steering wheel, among other changes.
While mechanically there are not many differences between the standard and the N Line variants, the suspension is slightly tweaked for sportier driving inputs. The Brazilian market gets the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine on the N Line Creta.
Following the launch of the updated Venue in just a week’s time, Hyundai will introduce the new generation Tucson in India in the coming months and the Ioniq 5 electric vehicle will arrive later this calendar year.
