Hyundai Creta Automatic Design and Dimensions
Design wise, the Creta has the boxy SUV shape all around. Front is typical Hyundai with large 3 slat grille and a bigger bumper with vertical fog lamps. Large 16-inch wheels fill the wheel wells very well. The side profile looks very Asian design indeed and window kink that ends is also the same. Rear has some funky and edgy looking tail lamps and the sheet metal and bumper is yet again large that aids in the macho SUV look that one looks for.
