The second generation Hyundai Creta was recently launched in India and has gone on sale at a starting price of Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom). It is available in five trim levels - E, EX, S, SX and SX(O). Of these, only the top two grades are available with 17-inch alloy wheels, with only the top-spec version receiving the machine-cut units. However, a few images that have surfaced the internet show a white coloured Creta with stunning 18-inch alloy wheels shod with lower profile rubber.
The first-ever 2020 Hyundai Creta with aftermarket 18-inch alloy wheels and lower profile tires has been snapped in Amritsar.
The new generation Hyundai Creta is on sale with three engine variants, all of which are the same as Kia Seltos. All these engines come from the Kia Seltos and include BSVI-compliant 1.5-litre petrol, 1.5-litre diesel and 1.4-litre turbo petrol options. The 1.5-litre engines output 115PS each, while the 1.4-litre option offers 140 PS. Both the 1.5-litre motors come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission as standard but the 1.4-litre engine is available only with a 7-speed DCT automatic unit. The base petrol motor can be also had with an optional CVT, while the oil-burner is optionally available with a 6-speed torque-converter unit.
The diesel engine of the Hyundai Creta offers a maximum mileage of 21.4 kmpl with the manual transmission. This is slightly higher than the 20.8 kmpl offered by the Seltos in the manual-diesel combo. The petrol engine offers 16.9 kmpl, which is, again, 0.1 kmpl higher than the 16.8 kmpl offered by the Seltos' manual-petrol option. The 1.4-litre variant of the Creta can also stretch a litre of unleaded to 16.8 kmpl, which is 0.3 kmpl higher than the fuel efficiency offered by the Seltos 1.4 DCT.
