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). Moreover, early this year, the new Creta also got its first price hike.
However, according to the latest report by Rushlane, the Hyundai Creta is about to receive several new features and some features might get removed as well. The top-end SX and SX(O) variants are likely to receive a significant connectivity enhancement with the Over-The-Air (OTA) updates for the infotainment system. This will allow new voice commands such as power window control, points-of-interest search, retrieving contact details and many more.
It will also get a new smart key with a remote engine start (both manual and automatic variants) and soft paint finish on the dashboard. Moreover, the mid-variant EX and S variants will get the wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay features.
Currently, it features a wired connection with a smartphone. The base E trim will be the one that will see some features get removed such as electrically adjustable wing mirrors, no luggage lamp and passenger seat-back pocket. Also, the ORVM mounted turn-indicators will be relocated to the front fenders.
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 New Features For The Hyundai Creta
The new features on the Hyundai Creta will definitely gain more attention. However, the base E variant now gets less features than before. The Creta goes up against the likes of the Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass and the Volkswagen T-Roc.
