Safety has become one of the top priorities for car buyers in India today. And Hyundai has taken note with the 2024 Creta facelift. The updated sub-compact SUV packs in over 70 safety features, headlined by a cutting-edge Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) suite.
Level 2 ADAS Takes Centre Stage
The star of the new Creta’s safety tech is its Level 2 ADAS capabilities. The system uses a front camera and three radars to enable 19 intelligent safety features. These build on existing essentials like 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, Vehicle Stability Management and Hill Assist Control.
The ADAS package can warn you about potential collisions, keep you centered in your lane, automatically adjust your cruise control speed based on other vehicles’ speed and distance, and much more. Features like Blind View Monitoring and Safe Exit Warning further enhance all-round safety.
Comprehensive Collision Avoidance Tech
Indian roads are full of unpleasant surprises—you never really know when and from where some vehicle or even a pedestrian pops up. Overtaking from the wrong—left side—is quite common. Its impossible for a driver to have 360-degree view on his own.
With the new Hyundai Creta, help is at hand. At the heart of the Creta’s ADAS suite are its collision avoidance capabilities. Multiple warnings and automatic braking functions cover a wide variety of accident-prone scenarios. For instance, Forward Collision Avoidance works to prevent front-end impacts with cars, cyclists and pedestrians. Meanwhile, features like Rear Cross Traffic Collision Assist have your back covered.
The ADAS system also offers Junction Turning collision assistance. And Driver Attention Warning monitors steering inputs and warning signs to caution you about distractions or drowsiness.
Advanced Cruise and Lane Centering Functions
Past few years have seen Indian highways catching up with best of the best. And while that is a good thing, driving on such highways brings new risks: drowsiness or just general lack of alertness that could be deadly given speeds cars are driven at on new highways.
The new Creta accompanies you on long drives via Advanced Smart Cruise Control. It can automatically accelerate, brake and stop your SUV based on the speed of vehicles ahead. This makes highway drives safer and more convenient.
For staying centered on the road, the ADAS package provides both Lane Keeping and Lane Following assists. Gentle steering corrections keep you from drifting out of your lane—an extremely useful feature since it prevents your car from coming in the way of another car looking to overtake you.
Superior Visibility and Blind Spot Monitoring
The 2024 Creta facilitates stress-free driving through multiple visibility aids. Blind View Monitors use side cameras to display live video feeds of your blind spots in the instrument cluster. Meanwhile, the Surround View Monitor gives you a helpful top-down view of your surroundings.
Blind Spot Collision Warnings alert you if you try changing lanes when another vehicle is in a hard-to-see area. And Safe Exit Warning protects both you and passing cars from dooring accidents.
In a nutshell
With its cutting-edge ADAS suite and abundance of active and passive safety equipment, the 2024 Hyundai Creta facelift sets a new bar for small SUVs. The technology on offer can potentially prevent accidents in the first place, rather than only minimizing their impact.
In case the accident does occur, all Creta variants come equipped with 6 airbags and Hyundai has strengthen the body structure with high tensile steel. We expect the Creta to follow Hyundai Verna in scoring 5-stars in GNCAP ratings.
So if safety is your priority, the updated Creta should certainly be on your shortlist.
