We recently ventured to Jordan to drive Hyundai’s new Creta 2023, a head turning premium compact crossover that brings a novel definition to what a sensuous and sporty car can be, together with its dynamic capabilities and seamless driving personality.
Equipped with a futuristic and strong-looking exterior, dynamic interior architecture and an impressive set of advanced technologies, the new Creta shows improved performance. We enjoyed the convenience features that certainly assured we had fun driving experience from Amman to see the panoramic views of the Dead Sea, with some lovely spots along the way for lunch and photos.
The new Creta combines a resilient bold sportiness, supported by brand-new technologies and features that gives it a unique and new personality in terms of the design and its presence on the road. It is a city compact SUV that has a bold and robust look with sharp sporty side cuts and a modern forefront. This gives the car a strong presence on the roads and reflects Hyundai’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design identity.
The front has an original bold look with a symbolized radiator grill painted with black and silver, and a set of hidden position DRL lights projecting a unique brand statement which is styled to draw a distinctive “Lights ON” image. From the side, a long hood profile reflects the robust and dynamic design of the car, which aims to mirror the latest trends in body design, implying a more powerful personality.
The rear of the CRETA contains individual lamps and a wide, rigid-looking stance which complements the front side. With an ample rear window glass, drivers enjoy more visibility.
The new CRETA sports a T-shaped layout and the interior cabin has evolved with new enhancements. The center fascia and console include a comfortable crash pad and a vertical structural layout to ensure safety. The door trim is now designed in a wing-shaped fashion and there is more spacious legroom and headroom for passenger comfort.
Careful attention was given to create harmony between the exterior and interior colors by offering different shades of black, brown and grey to the interior furnishes, which is made of cloth and artificial leather.
The new CRETA features Hyundai’s innovation in the ‘Smartstream’ lineup of powertrains. These technologies aim to provide the car with better fuel efficiency, improved performance, and reduced gas emissions. The powertrain specifications for the gasoline ‘Smartstream’ G 1.5L include an optimal airflow control which aims to control the amount of air intake, a more effective combustion and improved fuel economy.
The advanced driver assistance system enhancements include Forward Collision- Avoidance assist, Lane keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, High Beam Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Safe Exit Warning, Reverse Parking Distance Warning and Rear-View Monitor.
The new CRETA infotainment system features a variety of responsive, user-friendly technologies that accommodate the needs of music savvy customers. With eight speakers, passengers will enjoy a premium quality Bose sound system, a USB port with an Illumination USB charger.
We thoroughly enjoyed driving this across different terrains in Jordan using different driving modes that includes NORMAL, ECO, SPORT, and SMART. The new Creta has certainly evolved into a comfortable SUV that is perfect for the city and for road trips.
