Prices for the base diesel model starts at Rs 9.99 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi). The new Creta brings subtle changes to the exterior while adding new features. It is one of the best-selling five-seater SUVs in India.

That said, here are some things to know about the new Hyundai Creta Facelift!
Hyundai Creta Facelift: Top Speed & Acceleration
Hyundai has not officially released any top speed or acceleration figures for the Creta. However, there have been many claims on its performance through unofficial videos and statements; some of which are compiled below:
|Engines||Top Speed (km/h)||0-100km/h (seconds)|
|1.6-Litre VTVT Petrol||195 ||10.5 |
|1.4-Litre CRDi Diesel||165 ||12.5 |
|1.6-Litre CRDi Diesel||180 ||11 |
Note: The top speed and acceleration figures apply to the previous Creta model which uses the same engine and transmission.
Hyundai Creta Facelift: Mileage & Fuel Tank Capacity
The Hyundai Creta offers decent performance, especially with the 1.6-litre diesel unit. But in a country like India where fuel prices are always on a rise, manufacturers are forced to improve their products' fuel efficiency before anything else.
Here are the official mileage figures for the Hyundai Creta:
|1.6-Litre Petrol (Manual)||15.80|
|1.4-Litre Diesel (Manual)||22.10|
|1.6-Litre Diesel (Manual)||20.5|
|1.6-Litre Diesel (Auto)||17.6|
*The figures will vary with driving style, road condition and engine health.
With a fuel tank capacity of 60 litres, the Hyundai Creta offers a decent driving range too.
