South Korean car manufacturer, Hyundai appears to have discontinued the petrol ‘S’ variant of the Creta. Hyundai Creta has been tabbed as the most popular selling SUV for the company in India. The decision has come after the brand has introduced the E+ version in the Creta Carline in August 2016. Hyundai Creta was launched in seven trims - E, E+, SX+ and SX+ special edition in MT and the SX+ automatic, including the Creta S petrol 1.6L and Creta S+ petrol.
And now it will be available in the aforementioned five trims only. The difference in the price of E+ and SX+ variants is Rs 1.91 lakh (Ex showroom, Delhi). Where the Creta E petrol gets a price tag of Rs 9.21 lakh, the top of the line variant in the petrol model - the SX+ automatic is priced at Rs 12.93 lakh (All Prices, Ex showroom, Delhi).
Hyundai Creta is offered in both petrol and diesel engines. The 1.6-litre VTVT petrol engine is capable to generate 121bhp with 151Nm of peak torque. The diesel, on the contrary gets a 1.6-litre CRDi motor that is good for 126bhp and a peak torque 259Nm. Both the power units are available with either a six-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic transmission. While the less powered 1.4-litre CRDi unit produces 89bhp of maximum power and 220Nm of torque, paired with a six-speed manual transmission only.
It is feature packed with all comfort goodies that includes a 7-inch infotainment system, adjustable front head rests, keyless entry, power windows, driver’s seat height adjuster, adjustable rear seat head restraints, steering-mounted controls for audio system and audio-video navigation, bluetooth, and smart key with push button, and more.
