Hyundai Grand Creta Is A Three-Row Venue That’s Not For The US

The new seven-seat crossover launched in South Africa.

Crossovers that are small and economical are popular all around the world. They’re so popular in South Africa that Hyundai is adding a three-row Grand Creta to its portfolio. The seven-seat compact crossover is built on the same platform as other Hyundai and Kia models, including the Venue, which is sold in the United States. Hyundai, on the other hand, only offers the crossover in two-row configurations in the United States.

The Grand Creta’s length and wheelbase have been increased thanks to a revised K2 chassis. Hyundai was able to add two more seats behind the second row thanks to the extra space. The Grand Creta offers 6.3 cubic feet (180 cubic liters) of cargo space behind the third row, which grows to a gargantuan 58.9 cubic feet (1,670 cubic liters) with all the seats down.

A naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 156 horsepower (117 kilowatts) and 140 pound-feet (191 Newton-meters) of torque powers the crossover. A 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine with 113 horsepower (85 kW) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque is also available. The base model comes with a six-speed manual transmission, but a six-speed automatic is also available.

The Grand Creta will be available in two trim levels in the United States: Executive and Elite. Both are well-equipped, with a comprehensive list of standard features. Wireless phone charging, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility are all standard on the Hyundai Executive. It has LED headlights and 17-inch rims on the outside.

The Elite receives larger, 18-inch wheels, push-button start, a panoramic sunroof, parking sensors, and more. However, the neatest features are the fold-down trays for the second-row passengers. The Grand Greta Elite also sports a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster and a powered driver’s seat.

The crossover is equipped with MacPherson struts in the front and a linked torsion beam axle in the back. Another advantage of the Elite trim is its drive modes. Snow, Mud, Sand, Eco, Sport, and Normal are the five options.

The Hyundai Grand Creta’s arrival in South Africa serves as a reminder that crossovers aren’t simply popular in the United States, with several markets getting their own models and variants to meet the needs of demanding customers. While automakers prefer to produce variants of their vehicles to boost sales, we don’t think a three-row vehicle is on the horizon for American buyers.
