Hyundai probably unveiled the Creta facelifted in Indonesia in November 2021, but the pre-facelift variant is being sold in other parts of the world, such as South America. Now, for the first time Creta gets an N line treatment, adding a little play to the small crossover.
The Creta N line is based on the pre-facelift second-generation model introduced in 2019. Still, it benefits from a redesigned bumper with a wider grille that is now attached to the split headlights and features a larger bumper with triangular turn signal and splitter-style features. The grille pattern is reminiscent of Tucson, and when the grille is separated from the bonnet scoop it makes the SUV look more sporty.

Other additions include a version-specific 17-inch alloy wheel, N-badge around the car, dual-tone exterior, a panoramic sunroof and a redesigned rear bumper diffuser-style add-on. Unlike some other N and N line models, the Creta doesn’t get red highlights on the bottom of the bodykit.
Inside the cabin, we find black upholstery with reverse red stitching, the N symbol on the seats, the gear knob, and the glossy black treatment for the steering wheel and center console. Equipment features include a ventilated driver’s seat, automatic air conditioning, six airbags and a basic pack of Hyundai SmartSense ADAS suites.
The Creta N line, already available for pre-order in Brazil, is powered by a turbocharged 1.0-liter T-GDi three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 118 hp (88 kW / 120 PS) and 172 Nm (127 lb-ft). ) Of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
