Hence the companies are preparing for its launch.

The Design change
The vehicle’s aesthetics is the most noticeable and distinguishing factor to notice a facelift. And in this upcoming facelift, Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos will have updated looks. It can be more said for the Creta as it will have more noticeable changes, which include a completely new front facia and an updated rear.
On the contrary, Kia Seltos is expected to come with subtle changes on the outside that include a redesigned front and rear bumper and a new front grille.
Updated Feature List
Both Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos are already feature-loaded, but with the update, the company might extend the existing long list of these creature comforts.
For Hyundai Creta, we can expect the new SUV to come with
- All-Digital instrument cluster, like the one that comes with Hyundai Alazar.
- 360-Degree parking camera
- Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
- Level-2 ADAS Features include adaptive cruise control, blind sport monitoring, and others.
In the new Kia Seltos, we can expect the SUV to come with
- All-Digital instrument cluster display that continues to the infotainment system. Like the one in Mahindra XUV700.
- Wireless Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto
- Level-2 ADAS features.

More about the Kia Seltos Facelift Revealed! Exciting Enough?
In its current model on sale, the Seltos already comes with a 360-degree camera ventilated seats, part digital instrument cluster, and others.
As both the cars add more creature comforts, they are bound to get expensive. We expect both the cars to gain a price hike of about Rs. 1 Lakh for the top-end trims. This hike would also make them among the most expensive SUVs in their segment. Also, both the cars will feature the existing set of engine and transmission combination.
