The car market in India has seen a rise in the subcompact SUV segment. Ford, Renault and Nissan have catered to this segment which has seen tremendous success, and soon other car manufacturers are soon joining in.
Keeping this in mind, India's second largest passenger car manufacturer, Hyundai motors India LTD (HMIL) is launching the all-new ‘Creta' on July 21, 2015, to fight for supremacy in the subcompact SUV segment.
Inspired by the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy
Hyundai Creta is designed as a global SUV and is inspired by the same Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy as the new Elite I20. The Creta uses high quality materials like high-tensile steel to maintain body rigidity and structural strength. It also uses a ‘Hive Structure' to get a lightweight body structure and enhanced safety, and a ‘Ring-Shaped Frame' for better protection.
Creta will be available in both petrol and diesel options. Petrol will be powered by the 1.6-litre VTVT engine and the diesel model will be available with 1.4-litre CRDi & U2 and 1.6-litre CRDi VGT engines. The 1.4-litre engines comes mated to six-speed manual gearbox and the top spec 1.6-litre engine comes with a choice of manual or automatic transmission, both with 6 speeds.
