Futuristic Cabin

The new 2024 Creta's cabin design takes inspiration from Hyundai's (external link) international models, presenting an unconventional yet premium feel. The centrepiece is the dual curved 10.25-inch display for infotainment and instrument cluster.

Moreover, beneath the infotainment screen, physical controls for the AC panel ensure a user-friendly experience and the ambient lighting adds a touch of sophistication throughout the cabin.

Tech Upgrades

The new Creta boasts a plethora of cutting-edge features, elevating the driving experience to new heights. Among the notable additions is a 10.25-inch digital driver's display, providing a futuristic and customizable interface. The inclusion of dual-zone climate control enhances passenger comfort by allowing personalized temperature settings.

Safety has also taken centre stage in the 2024 Creta with the integration of a camera + radar-based level 2 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), a sophisticated suite of technologies aimed at preventing accidents and enhancing overall safety. The ADAS tech is similar to what the Hyundai Verna (external link) or the Kia Seltos (external link) offers.

Moreover, the introduction of a 360-degree camera system with a rear blind view monitor further amplifies the SUV's safety profile, providing a comprehensive view of the surroundings. Additionally, the inclusion of Type-C USB chargers serves the modern connectivity needs of users, ensuring a seamless and convenient driving experience.
