Hyundai India has finally launched the Creta compact SUV in a price range of Rs. 8.59-13.60 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, Delhi) in the country. The Creta comes in both petrol and diesel guises with a total of three engines. Hyundai Creta comes with as many as 10 variants, including the range-topping diesel automatic variant - a first-in-segment. The crossover would rival the likes of Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano and the upcoming Maruti S-Cross in the country. Apparently, Hyundai India had registered 15,000 bookings for the Creta before its official launch.

The India launch of Creta also marks its world premiere, quite identical to the Hyundai i20 Active. As for exterior styling, the Creta follows Hyundai's latest Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy and appears like a mini Santa Fe. The features offered as standard with the entire variant line-up are central locking, 2-Din music system, 16-inch wheels, and foldable key. Also, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) are available as standard safety features across the entire range. The top-end variants get a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system, smart key with push start-stop button, 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, projector headlamps, leather seats, and leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio and phone controls. 

The flagship variant of Hyundai Creta - SX (O) - comprises of top-notch safety features in form of 6 airbags (side and curtain airbags), reverse parking camera, anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic stability control (ESC), vehicle stability management (VSM), hill-start assist control, etc. However, the automatic variant in diesel fuel trim is offered in SX+ trim, and hence it misses out on side and curtain airbags. Just so you know, Hyundai Creta is manufactured at the company's Chennai plant with over 95 percent of local content. As for fuel efficiency, Hyundai Creta 1.4L diesel would deliver 21.38kmpl, while the 1.6L diesel would return 19.67kmpl and 17.01kmpl with manual and auto transmissions, respectively. The 1.6L petrol variants of Creta would come with an ARAI Certified mileage of 15.29kmpl.
