The Hyundai Creta might be the most popular selling SUV for the carmaker and also one of the best selling SUVs in India, but that has not stopped the South Korean carmaker from discontinuing a petrol variant from its lineup.
Hyundai has discontinued the ‘S' trim petrol variant of the Creta from its lineup in India. The variant has also been taken away from the manufacturer's website. The move could be after Hyundai introduced the E+ variant of the Creta, priced at Rs. 9.99 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi).
The petrol version of the Hyundai Creta is now available in five variants, namely, E, E+, SX+, SX+ Special Edition, and SX+ Automatic.
The petrol powered Creta comes with a 1.6-litre petrol engine that produces 122bhp and 154Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated either to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Hyundai claims that the petrol variant of the Creta returns a mileage of 15.29km/l.
The S variant continues to be sold with the diesel engine. The diesel powered Creta has a either a 1.4 or a 1.6-litre engine under the hood that make 89bhp and 126bhp respectively.
The diesel engine comes paired to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Hyundai says that the Creta with the smaller displacement diesel engine (1.4-litre) will return a mileage of 21.38km/l, while the bigger displacement engine (1.6-litre) will return mileage figures of 19.67km/l, and the automatic version will return 17.01km/l.
