With the MY’23 updates, safety features, convenience features, and the efficiency and performance of the powertrain will all be improved.

The Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai Motor India, Mr. Tarun Garg, said this about the launch of the MY’23 SUV Range: “As a customer-focused company, we have always tried to give our customers the best mobility experiences possible. With the MY’23 updates we’ve made to Hyundai’s best-selling SUVs, we’ve made sure that safety, convenience, and performance are even better all around. Also, we are going in the same direction as the government and have made sure that our powertrains are ready for RDE and E20 fuel. So, with these major changes, Hyundai’s MY’23 SUVs (VENUE, CRETA, and ALCAZAR) will be a better deal for our valued customers.


As part of the MY’23 launch, models like the CRETA and the ALCAZAR come with a lot of active and passive safety features that are built in as standard. Hyundai has added the following Key Standard safety equipment to CRETA to make sure customers have a strong layer of protection and feel safe while driving:

• 6 airbags (driver, passenger, side, and curtain); • Electronic Stability Control (ESC); • Vehicle Stability Management (VSM); • Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC); • Rear Disc Brakes; • Seatbelt Height Adjustment.

Also, the S (O), SX, and SX variants of VENUE now come with four airbags (for the driver, passenger, and sides) as standard safety features (O). Hyundai is improving the customer experience by making its safety packages for the CRETA, VENUE, and ALCAZAR better as a whole. This gives customers better protection and drive control.


Idle Stop & Go (ISG) has been added to HMIL’s MY’23 SUV range. This is in addition to the safety package upgrades. During stop-and-go driving, the smart ISG system makes Hyundai SUVs more convenient for customers while also making them more fuel-efficient.
