So, we’ve heard a sportier, meaner Creta is on its way. Hyundai has just commenced bookings of the Creta N Line, rumours of which have been going around for quite a while now. If you like the idea of a sportier Creta, you can now book the Creta N Line, for a token amount of Rs 25,000. So, how exactly is the Hyundai Creta N Line different from the regular Creta? Let’s find out.

Some time ago, we spoke about things to expect from the upcoming SUV, and now that we finally have official pictures from Hyundai, things get even more clearer. The Creta N Line gets a completely different front-end to differentiate itself, with a repositioned and redesigned grille, along with redesigned LED DRLs and a light strip running above. Much like the i20 N Line and Venue N Line, the Creta N Line also features prominent red inserts on the lower part of its exteriors. It also gets N Line-specific 18-inch alloy rims with red brake callipers, to lay further emphasis on its sporty nature.

The rear gets a new a spoiler and twin-tip exhaust pipes

Things haven’t changed too much at the rear, with the exception of twin-tip exhaust pipes, an N Line-specific spoiler, and a skid plate with red inserts. The Creta N Line offers a new dual-tone paint scheme, with Thunder Blue being the primary colour, while a black roof helps with contrast and add that extra sportiness in the car’s design.

Under the hood, the Creta N Line will get the 1.5-litre turbo-petrol, with 160 bhp and 25.3 kgm of torque, paired to the 7-speed DCT. However, a six-speed manual would make things really interesting; can you hear us, Hyundai?

Six airbags will be available as standard

On the inside, the N Line’s interiors will be based on the regular Creta’s, with the exception of black upholstery with red inserts, given that’s how it’s done on the i20 N Line and Venue N Line.

We expect the Creta N Line to carry a slightly higher price tag once launched, competing against the likes of the Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo, and the Kia Seltos X-Line. Remember the date; March 11 it is!
