Hyundai is gearing up to introduce the 2021 iteration of its Creta SUV in India in the coming weeks. The new-generation Creta will get a host of updated features, depending upon the variants.
In the latest development, the base E trim of the car has been spotted at a dealership, revealing that it will lack electrically adjustable indicator-mounted ORVMs.
Here's our roundup.
Exteriors: Turn-indicators will now be placed on the front fenders
The 2021 Hyundai Creta E will retain the design of the outgoing model, including a muscular bonnet, a cascading grille, a wide air dam, silvered skid plates, a roof-mounted spoiler, and adjustable projector headlamps.
On the sides, it will be flanked by roof rails, fender-mounted turn-indicators, manually adjustable ORVMs, blacked-out B-pillars, and 16-inch steel alloy wheels.
Fact: The vehicle will be powered by a 113.42hp petrol engine
The 2021 Hyundai Creta's E variant will likely continue with the current engine, which is a 1.5-liter petrol unit delivering 113.42hp of maximum power and 144.15Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties will be handled by a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Interiors: It will offer dual airbags and rear parking sensors
The upcoming Hyundai Creta E will offer a 5-seater cabin with fabric upholstery, a multifunctional steering wheel, power windows on the front and rear, keyless entry, and rear parking sensors.
It will also miss out on a luggage lamp and back pocket on the passenger seat.
For safety, the SUV should provide dual airbags, crash sensors, and ABS with EBD.

At present, the pricing details of the 2021 Hyundai Creta E are unknown. It is likely to start at Rs. 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom) - much like the existing model.
