first rendering of hyundai creta subcompact cuv revealed

Recently announced for production with the Santa Cruz to possibly be made as well, the Hyundai Creta was revealed in rendered form Tuesday.

The new subcompact crossover boasts a so-called premium look based on Hyundai’s “evolved design philosophy,” with details such as the blacked-out A-pillar reminiscent meant to evoke “an open and airy cabin,” a “bold” front section with the automaker’s newest corporate grill — already on the new Tucson — embrasure side windows, and a rearward swooping slash along the beltline.

The Creta will soon appear in showrooms sometime during H2 2015, with India being the first on the subcompact crossover’s list of global markets to visit. Whether the North American market is on said list — where it would face the Honda HR-V, Chevrolet Trax and Mazda CX-3 among others — is up for Hyundai to decide.
