Confused about which one to choose between SX and SX(O) trims of 2020 Hyundai Creta? Check out this space for help.
2020 Hyundai Creta was launched in March this year. Soon after its launch, a nationwide lockdown was imposed due to the outburst of a global pandemic. However, that hasn’t been an obstruction for the new-gen Creta in clocking big numbers on the sales chart. In simple words, new-gen Creta outsold every car on sale in May to become the best-selling car in India. Reasons for the high demand of the new-gen Creta are not one but many. One of which is the multiple variants and engine-transmission options on offer. It is offered in a total of 5 variants, namely E, S, S+, SX, SX(O). While it is easy to make a fix in the lower end of the spectrum of the variants, but choosing between the SX and SX(O) is a tough affair.
To ease the job for you, here’s a video that we came on the YouTube channel of Car Duniya. The video starts by showcasing the difference between the two variants that they possess on the outside. Interestingly, both the variants look identical to each other except for the different wheel designs. The lesser SX variant sits on a set of R17 silver-finished alloy wheels, whereas the SX(O) trims uses diamond-cut finish for its 17-inch rims.
On the inside, however, the differences are in plenty. The SX trim misses out on a lot of features in comparison to the SX(O) variant, namely ventilated front seats, side & curtain airbags, air purifier, power-adjustable driver seat, 7-inch digital instrument cluster, remote start, Bose sound system, front central speaker, subwoofer, and leather upholstery. Although, it does get the leather-wrapped D-cut steering wheel, panoramic sunroof, 10.25-inch touchscreen with Arkamys sound system, which makes it a better deal overall.
Talking of the powertrain and drivetrains options, both the variants are similarly spec’d. They are offered with all the 3 engine options that new-gen Creta comes with. The 1.5L N/A petrol motor, however, can only be had with a CVT unit on the top-spec SX(O) trim. Remaining other engine-transmission options are common across both the variants. Considering the price difference, the 1.5L petrol-powered SX variant is cheaper by Rs. 1.21 lakh in comparison to the SX(O) trim. The turbo-petrol variants, on the other hand, share a price difference of Rs. 1.04 lakh. The price difference between the two variant with diesel-manual and diesel-auto configurations is Rs. 1.48 lakh and Rs. 1.41 lakh, respectively.
