Naked! Does the Hyundai Crete what it takes to fight the Nissan Juke?
Last little secret in this industry, really. It just takes someone with a camera to derail months of trade secret. In this case it has happened in India, where the Hyundai Crete It will be manufactured locally. Crete is the Hyundai Hyundai bet by one of the most profitable segments of time, that of B SUV, crossover or small. Is a segment dominated by cars like the Nissan Juke, the Renault Captur or newcomer SsangYong Tivoli. We know how it will look new Hyundai Crete.
His appearance is much more serious than expected, if I'm honest. Unimaginative. Sketches augured a very fluid design, sculpted, full of movement and nerves. But the result is that it is the same car as the Hyundai ix25 already sells in China for some months, it derived directly from the ix25 Concept, which is relatively faithful. A small crossover that does not stand for anything in particular beyond a sober and discreet image, to which however I predict a sales success.
A sales success It would have been better with a more risky design. It is a segment in which we must draw attention. Filtration Hyundai Crete focuses on two different units: one is red and has been photographed on an assembly line. It seems belonging to a basic finish, your tires are small and have enough black plastic moldings. The other unit - in black - has been spotted on the streets of India, without camouflage and normally circulate in traffic.
This second unit carries larger wheels and a chrome strip on top of the glass surface. The front is the most beautiful part of both cars, with a grille and a gridded optical aspect in which LEDs are integrated daytime. It's a brand image very similar to that followed by the Hyundai i20 renewed, which reminds me mightily. In fact, it is as if we were talking about Hyundai i20 crossover, as to their general appearance and style codes they are very similar.
The side profile of the car is very gridded, with an upward side waist giving you a strong air car. At the rear, as well as an imitation of a cubrebajos we found a sizable window and a optical generously sized. No pictures of the inside - that promises spacious - or its engines. a range similar to that of the Hyundai i20, with the top end perhaps by the time located 1.6 CRDi 128 hp and a turbocharged gasoline engines of similar power is expected.
Soon we will have all the official information. For the moment, What do you think the Hyundai Crete?
