Hyundai Motor India has launched a new variant of their popular Creta SUV in the market. The new Hyundai Creta 'EX' variant is positioned above the base 'E' trim and is available with a starting price of Rs 10.84 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi).
Hyundai had previously discontinued the 'E+' variant of the Hyundai Creta. The new Hyundai Creta EX will be available in both petrol (1.6-litre) and diesel (1.4-litre and 1.6-litre) variants and will feature a number of new features and equipment.
With the addition of the new EX variant, the popular Hyundai Creta SUV is now available in a range of seven variant —E, EX, S, SX, SX Dual Tone, SX (O) and SX (O) Executive.
The petrol version of the new Hyundai Creta EX variant will now come with LED DRLs, rear armrest with integrated cup holder, reverse parking camera and adjustable headrest for the rear seats. The diesel variant, on the other hand, will feature all the above features with the addition of a five-inch touchscreen infotainment system, steering-mounted controls, sunglass holder and a front USB charging socket as well.
Apart from the addition of the new EX variant on the Creta, Hyundai has also discontinued the automatic version of the S diesel variant. The automatic transmission will now be available only on the top-spec models of the Hyundai Creta, as they are more popular in the market.
All variant of the Hyundai Creta will now also feature dual-airbags, ABS with EBD, reverse parking camera, high-speed alert and seat-belt reminders; as part of the new safety regulations of April 2020.
Other safety features include speed and impact-sensing auto door lock, lane-change indicator, engine immobiliser, ESC, HAC, rear defogger and ISOFIX among others. Top-spec Hyundai Creta variants also come with 6 airbags as standard.
The new Hyundai Creta EX variant will continue to be powered by the same 1.6-litre petrol engine producing 122bhp and 151Nm of torque; the 1.4-litre diesel churns out 89bhp and 220Nm of torque while the 1.6-litre diesel puts out 126bhp and 260Nm of peak torque. All three engine options are mated to a either a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
Thoughts On The New Hyundai Creta EX Variant
The new Hyundai Creta EX variant comes with a host of additional features over the standard base trim. With the additional features on the new Creta variant, Hyundai hopes to attract more customers towards the popular SUV which is already leading the segment in the Indian market. The Hyundai Creta continues to rival the likes of the Tata Harrier, Mahindra XUV500 and the Nissan Kicks in India.
