Hyundai launched the new-gen Hyundai Creta earlier this year. Initially, the 2020 Hyundai Creta does not meet with expected response from the market due to the COVID19 outbreak. However, since the market has warmed up in the last few months, the Hyundai Creta is gaining more sales.
2020 Hyundai Creta shares its powertrain options with the Kia Seltos. It is available with three choices of engines, 1.5-litre petrol, 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel motor. The 1.5-litre petrol engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic gearbox. The turbocharged petrol engine, on the other hand, is available with a 7-speed DCT only. The only diesel engine comes with two transmission options, 6-speed MT or 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
Even though the Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta share similar engine choices, Hyundai Creta ends up with higher fuel efficiency thanks to lighter kerb weight and higher gear ratio. The non-turbocharged petrol engine returns the mileage of 16.8kmpl and 17.1kmpl for the manual and CVT version, respectively. The turbocharged petrol’s fuel mileage stands at 16,8 kmpl. The diesel-DCT is claimed to offer the mileage of 16.8kmpl while the diesel-AT delivers a fuel economy of 18.3kmpl.
