While we bring you several modification examples of the Creta for quite some time now, this is the first new Hyundai Creta with aftermarket CNG kit. Read along for further details.
Earlier this year, Hyundai has launched the all-new Creta in India amid the global coronavirus pandemic. Despite the challenges and uncertainties, the new-gen Creta manages to become an immense success for Hyundai, dominating the top spot in the Indian mid-size SUVs segment. With such popularity, Hyundai Creta becomes a popular car among the modification circles in India. While we bring you several modification examples of the Creta for quite some time now, this is the first New Hyundai Creta with aftermarket CNG kit. Read along for further details.
Before going into any further, one should keep in mind that in the stock form, the 2020 Hyundai Creta is available with both petrol and diesel engine options but there’s no factory-fitted CNG variant onboard. Evidently, that’s why the Creta’s owner has decided to give his car an aftermarket CNG fitment to enhance the efficiency of the vehicle.
Uploaded by cngMarutiautogas CNG on their official Youtube channel, the video shows us the components that are kitted out in the aftermarket CNG kit on the Hyundai Creta. The fit and finish of the setup look very neat. All the parts like the reducer, injectors, filler valve and high-pressure pipes are laid out in the model neatly. Like other CNG-fitted cars, this Creta features a gas cylinder at the rear. The kit installed here is the Zavoli Bora S32 sequential kit. From the video, we can also see the gas level indicator and the button to switch from petrol to CNG mode on the inside of the model.
It’s obvious that installing a CNG kit on a petrol-powered car like the Creta might be a good method to lower the running costs. The dealer claims that this Hyundai Creta CNG can return the economy rating of over 20 km/kg if the driver drives the SUV decently. However, one should notice that there are a lot of vendors offering low-standard CNG kits in our country that can do harm to the vehicle. It is advisable to contact the dealer who is providing RTO-approved CNG kits if anyone is interested in having their car converted to a CNG model.
Back to the regular Hyundai Creta, the all-new mid-size SUV is available with a 1.5-litre NA petrol, a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel and diesel engines and a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit. While the 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol can produce 115 PS and 144 Nm, the 1.5-litre turbo-diesel mill can generate 115 PS and 250 Nm of peak torque. The former comes mated to a 6-speed MT and an IVT, the latter gets the support from a 6-speed MT and a 6-speed AT option. The 1.4-litre turbo-petrol motor, on the other hand, is capable of making 140 PS of max power and 242 Nm of peak torque. This engine can be had with a 7-speed DCT option only.
