While the side profile of the car remains completely unchanged, the rear gets a revised tailgate with sharp creases and slightly updated LED tail lamps. It has also dumped the LED light bar placed between the tail lamps.

Fun Fact: Our sources have told us that Hyundai India had the option of opting for this new grille with the second generation Creta. However, the idea was dropped to keep the prices in check.
