Sustainable mobility for the FIFA World Cup™
Hyundai Motor first joined forces with FIFA in 1999 and has since then become its automotive provider and sponsor. This time, the brand is taking a step further to position itself as a sustainability partner by deploying eco-friendly vehicles to this year’s FIFA World Cup™, a first in the history of the event. The fleet, which will include the IONIQ 5 and Santa Fe Hybrid and Elec City Bus, are going to be used to transport national team players, VIPs and event officials. Moreover, to expand reach and spread the cause, Hyundai Motor is also pledging 1% of its sponsorship fee to Common Goal, the world’s leading social movement in football.
A group of ambassadors, “Team Century”, was formed by the brand in amplification of the initiative. Led by former England national team player Steven Gerrard, together with K-pop supergroup BTS, Afghan refugee soccer player and Danish UNESCO ambassador Nadia Nadim, American fashion designer Jeremy Scott, contemporary Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn, visual storyteller Nicky Woo, South Korean football icon Jisung Park, former Oman national team goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi and Boston Dynamics’ Spot® robot.
New Hyundai Creta
The newest addition to the product line up of Hyundai Motor is a sub-compact crossover SUV that is efficient yet fun, stylish but safe and easy to drive. Innovative on every aspect from design to convenience features.
In the front, the New Creta flaunts a bold ‘Parametric Jewel’ grille with integrated daytime running lights (DRL) and a unique headlamp architecture. The side lines express a more muscular and agile body shape. Its long hood, connected black A pillar, wide C pillar, straight roof line and the deep wheel-arch gives a wider and stable stance completing the muscular look. Behind, the individual lamps match the equally daring front. Paired with the silver skid plate are signature “boomerang” shaped LED rear lamps that add to the unique identity of the vehicle. On the inside, refined lines on the side panels continued on to the dashboard form a clean, symmetrical T-shaped layout. Access panels, buttons and compartments are neatly organized and kept uncluttered to lessen visual driving obtrusions.
Under the hood is a 1.5-liter SmartStream engine which allows optimal airflow control, more effective combustion, better heat and friction control and reduced exhaust. The New Creta uses an Intelligent Variant Transmission (iVT), Hyundai Motor’s flagship propriety technology, that regulates vehicle speed more cleverly than the “step-by-step” of an automatic gearbox. These enable an overall improved fuel economy while maintaining high power and torque output. It also comes with an Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) system complemented by Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Hill Start Assist Control (HAC).
- Comfort and Safety
Leading the segment in terms of driver safety, the brand’s suite of intelligent cameras and ultrasonic sensors called Hyundai Smartsense is standard to the New Creta. This comprises of functions such as Forward Collison-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Reverse Parking Distance Warning and Rear-View Monitor. For added comfort and functionality, there is also a 10.25” TFT LCD cluster that has multi-lingual settings and user-friendly information menus. This is accompanied by an 8” touchscreen infotainment display compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a fast wireless charger for hands-free connectivity.
The model is available in four (4) colors which are Creamy White, Magnetic Silver Metallic, Dragon Red Pearl and Midnight Black Pearl. It has three (3) variants starting with the 1.5 GL 6MT, 1.5 GL CVT and 1.5 GLS CVT. The latter, comes with a black roof for a distinct two-tone styling.
