There are 14 variants and three engines to choose from. There is the E, EX, S, SC and SX (O). The bookings have crossed 15k as we write this and Hyundai expects a bit of waiting period.
The all-new Hyundai Creta looks like a winner, already!
Well, it seems so to us as well. Just like the first model was a runaway success and garnered a 10-month waiting period, this one might have a longer period. The platform is new and even two elephants standing on the car cannot crush it. Impressive, eh! The Hyundai corporate look has been passed on to this car. It seems that the headlights are inspired from the Kia Seltos and have a unique pattern. Hyundai has also added new 17-inch alloys to the equation and the tail lights are now LEDs. The rear design seems like a mirror image of the front one.
The cabin too has a makeover. There is the large 10.2-inch touchscreen that hosts Android Auto and Apple Carplay along with Mirror Link. Hyundai has also added it’s BlueLink 1.5 software that brings along emergency assistance and remote vehicle analysis. There are also ventilated front seats in this 5-seater as well as climate control with rear AC vents. The driver’s seat is power adjustable and a sunroof too is there.
Coming to the engines, the all-new Hyundai Creta borrows it’s powertrains from the Kia Seltos. The state of tune too is the same. The 1.5-litre petrol engine makes 115PS/145Nm and claims a mileage of 16.8kmpl with the manual and 16.9kmpl with CVT. As for the diesel, there is the 1.5-litre motor that makes 115PS/250Nm. The claimed mileage for the manual is 21.4kmpl while the 6-speed torque converter automatic claims 18.5kmpl. Hyundai has also added a 1.4-litre turbo petrol. This one makes 140PS of power and 245Nm. The claimed mileage is 16.3kmpl, with the 7-speed DCT. For the 1.5-litre engines, a 6-speed manual is standard.
There is a warranty of three years or unlimited kilometres, four years or 60,000km or five years or 50,000km on offer. The all-new Hyundai Creta also comes with three years of roadside assistance. Competition to the Creta comes from the Kia Seltos and Tata Harrier.
