The next-gen 2020 Hyundai Creta will be offered with a lot of segment-first features, but it still loses to MG Hector on some counts. Check these out.
Hyundai Motors is all set to launch the new-generation Creta in India next month. The SUV is expected to regain its position as the best-selling SUV in the country, a title which is held by the Kia Seltos right now.
Hyundai Creta plenty of features that aren't even offered on the MG Hector
To help the Creta win over Indian car buyers, Hyundai is offering the SUV with a lot of features which are exclusive for the segment. In a similar manner, MG Hector was launched last year with a lot of segment-firsts. Although the Hector is half a segment above the Creta, there is some equipment that is offered on the bigger SUV but not on the new Creta.
The MG Hector has quite a few additional features over the Creta, like electrically adjustable co-driver seat, 360-degree parking camera, flat floor panel (rear), front parking sensors, ‘Gaana’ app pre-installed infotainment system, floating style turn indicators, heated ORVMs, and an electric tailgate
The 2020 Hyundai Creta, on the other hand, comes with several premium features that aren't available even on the Hector. These include steering-mounted paddle shifters, remote engine start/stop, remote-operated air purifier, ventilated front seats, BOSE sound system, rear-seat headrest cushions, wireless charging pad, and dual-exhaust ports. While the Hector offers internet-enabled telematics and traction control, the same as Creta, the Hyundai also comes with smartwatch connectivity and multiple driving modes: Snow, Sand, and Mud. Other than that, the Creta is also offered with a dual-tone exterior colour option
There are a few similarities as well. Both the SUVs feature internet-based connected car technology, along with a host of voice-activated features. You can even open and close the sunroof with voice commands on both! The powertrains though, are different. The Hyundai will have three engine options- a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol, a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel, and a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. The MG is powered by two engine options- a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol and a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel. The former can also be bought with an optional mild-hybrid system on-board. Both engines come paired to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic.
