Contrary to expectations, the new Creta will not have a vertical infotainment system screen in the style of Tesla. The SUV will have a 10.25-inch conventional horizontal touchscreen tablet. In addition, some functions of the Indian Creta are simplified: the climate control system is adjusted by rotary shift knobs, rather than through a touchscreen. Its steering wheel, door panels and center console design are different from that of the ix25.
