The sub-compact SUV has the attractive design based on brand’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 Concept. The Creta looks stylish and sporty in the same. The sharply chiseled lines on the hood, side panels and sculpted rear side combined with raked roof leave the strong impression.
Hyundai updated styling of the Creta for the 2018 model year and the 2019 Hyundai Creta will return in the familiar style.
