The Hyundai Creta N Line gets sharper styling, a stiffer suspension and a rorty-er exhaust

Hyundai fans rejoice! The Korean marque has finally given the Creta its sporty ‘N Line’ treatment and launched it at an introductory price of ₹16.82 lakh. Based on the turbo-petrol variant of the standard Creta, the Creta N Line gets sharper styling inside, a few changes to the interior, a stiffer suspension setup, revised steering and as we've seen on N Line cars of the past, a louder exhaust note.

Here's a deep dive into this highly awaited mid-size Sport-ute.

Hyundai Creta N Line styling and interior

Based on the recently revamped, third-generation of the Hyundai Creta, the Creta N Line gets a whole host of sharp-looking, sporty, elements. Up front there's an all-new grille and a more prominent brushed silver bumper with bigger air vents. The grille gets a hexagonal mesh pattern in lieu of the horizontal slats and also houses the 2D Hyundai logo. What remains unchanged is the pair of those sleek LED headlights connected by a lightbar at the front. In profile, the SUV gets bigger 18-inch alloys and red brake calipers. There's also a red highlight line, on the side skirts which extends its way into the front and rear bumpers, which gives a nice contrast to the primary exterior shade. At the rear, the Creta N Line gets a diffuser and a roof mounted spoiler. Not to forget the double barrel exhaust tips which look oh-so-incredible! Hyundai is offering the Creta N Line in three monotone and three dual-tone exterior shades, including a new ‘Titan grey matte’ option.

On the inside, the Creta N Line gets an all-black interior, complete with a black headliner, contrasted by red accents on the dashboard, air-con vents and gear lever. It gets metal foot pedals and a bespoke three-spoke steering wheel which is exclusive to N Line models. It also gets ‘N’ badging and contrasting red stitching on the steering wheel, seats and gear knob.

What remains unchanged is the extensive list of features including dual 10.25-inch screens for the infotainment and the cluster, three drive modes, a 360-degree camera, cooled front seats, a panoramic sunroof, eight-way electrical driver's seat, ambient lighting, dual-zone climate control, a Bose sound system and Level 2 ADAS tech.

Hyundai Creta N Line engine, transmission and suspension

The Creta N Line is powered by the same 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine which churns out 158bhp and 253Nm of peak torque. It can be had with either a seven-speed DCT or a six-speed manual gearbox (exclusive for the N Line). Just like its younger siblings, the i20 N Line and the Venue N Line, the Creta N Line gets stiffer dampers in a bid to aid handling. And Hyundai has also tweaked its steering for better dynamics. The Creta, in turbo-petrol avatar, already is a hoot to drive and these changes should make it an even fun car when it comes to the #ThrillOfDriving.

Hyundai Creta N Line price, variants and rivals

Launched at an introductory price of ₹16.82 lakh, the Creta N Line is available in four variants:

N8 MT: ₹16.82 lakh

N10 MT: ₹19.34 lakh

N8 DCT: ₹18.32 lakh

It rivals the likes of the Kia Seltos X Line and the Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo.
