We recently tested the 2020 Hyundai Creta with 1.4L turbo-petrol variant to see how fast it is to the 100 kmph in all of its 3 driving modes. Here are results, take a look.
Hyundai Creta was the best-selling car for May 2020 and second-best-selling car for June 2020. It was launched a few days before the nation-wide lockdown was imposed, but managed to be a good seller in such a scenario. How? Thanks to the multiple variants on offer along with various engine-gearbox options. Also, the prices for the Hyundai Creta start fairly low at Rs. 9.99 lakh, and it comes loaded with a host of features. Plus, it is rather quick to the 100 kmph mark. We recently tested the diesel-manual variant of the car, which took 12.23 seconds to reach the 100 kmph mark. Thus, we thought of testing the Turbo-petrol trim of the Creta that comes with a DCT, since it is the most powerful engine option on offer.
Also, it comes with 3 driving modes – Eco, Sport, and Comfort. Therefore, 0-100 kmph timings were compared for all the three modes. Starting with the Eco mode first, it took 11.80 seconds to reach the tonne mark. Moving over to the Comfort mode, Creta reached the speeds of 100 kmph in just 11.72 seconds. The last on the list is the Sport mode, which helped the Creta do the same exercise in just 11.35 seconds.
With these timings, it is evident that turbo-petrol variant of the Creta is faster than its diesel counterpart. Also, these test runs were performed with 2 occupants in place along with some camera gear in the boot. The AC was also on all though-out the test runs. This was done to depict real-world conditions.
Talking of the specifications, the 1.4L 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor is designed to develop a peak power output of 140 PS and max torque of 242 Nm. Also, it comes mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with steering-mounted paddle shifters. This variant also gets a different interior theme in comparison to the regular variants of the Creta. The interior of the turbo-petrol variant is draped in a shade of black with contrast red inserts for AC vents and stitching. Like the other variants, this too gets the full-size panoramic sunroof, BlueLink connectivity tech, powered driver seats and more.
