Early last year, Hyundai Motors launched the all-new Creta SUV in the Indian market. The new Hyundai Creta was first showcased in the country at the Auto Expo 2020. The Creta is offered in five variants: E, EX, S, SX and SX(O). However, early this year the new Creta got its first price hike.
Now, the company has yet again increased the price of the Creta SUV. The SUV has got a price hike of Rs 19,600 for diesel variants and up to Rs 13,600 for petrol variants. The petrol variants start at Rs 9,99,990 for the base variant and Rs 17,67,400 for the top-end trim. Also, the diesel variant is now priced at Rs 10,51,000 for the base and goes all the way up to the Rs 17,62,400 mark for the top-end model. All prices mentioned above are ex-showroom.
The Hyundai Creta features the brand's latest cascading grille at the front, surrounded by a newly designed set of LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs. The front bumper has also been updated and features LED fog lamps and a central air intake with faux silver scuff plates at the bottom.
Other features on the all-new Hyundai Creta include wireless charging, ventilated front seats, keyless entry, push-button start/stop, panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, tyres pressure monitoring system, multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, paddle shifters, electric parking brake, rear parking camera & sensors, hill-start assist, hill-descent control, electronic stability control; among a host of others.
Mechanically, the 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines on the new Hyundai Creta, churn out the same 115bhp and 144Nm and 250Nm of peak torque, respectively. Hyundai will also be offering the 1.4-litre turbo petrol unit on the higher-spec variants. This 1.4-litre T-GDI unit also produces the same 140bhp on the Creta as it does on the Kia Seltos.
All three engines will come mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox. While the three engines will also be offered with separate automatic transmission options as well. This includes a six-speed CVT with the 1.5-litre petrol, a torque-converter for the 1.5-litre diesel and a seven-speed DCT on the 1.4-litre petrol units.
Thoughts About The Second Price Hike For The Hyundai Creta This Year
The Hyundai Creta SUV gets the second price hike this year and that is because the cost of production has gone up. The Creta goes up against the likes of the Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass and the Volkswagen T-Roc.
