Hyundai Brazil has recently teased the Brazilian spec Creta on their website. The reports state that the compact SUV will be unveiled at the 2016 Sao Paolo Auto show which will commence from November onward.

The Creta was already launched in the Indian market and India is also the first market to use the ‘Creta’ nameplate as well. In India, the compact SUV is quite popular and is made available with both petrol as well as diesel drivetrains under its hood. Quite honestly the Creta with its loaded exterior and interior not only gives some tough competition to the Renault Duster but also to the Mahindra XUV500 which is priced slightly higher than the SUV.

As far as the Brazilian spec Creta is concerned this compact SUV will be manufactured at Piracicaba plant in Sao Paulo, Brazil. After it’s unveiling in November the car will go on sale in the Brazilian market early 2017. However the reason why we are interested in this particular SUV is because of the fact that this will also make it to the Indian market as well sometimes in mid-2017 as a facelift model. Although not much details are available at this moment but we have updated this article with all the information.
