The Hyundai Creta comes in a 2WD configuration only, but is a capable soft-roader. Don't believe us? Take a look at this video here.
New Hyundai Creta is the top-selling SUV in its segment. Even when the world was partially locked-down due to the outburst of a contagious pathogen, Hyundai Creta managed to top the sales chart. In the Indian market, Hyundai Creta was launched for the first time in 2015, and it has been offered in a 2WD layout only. In the international markets, however, Hyundai offers the optional AWD system as well. But, with an FWD drivetrain, Hyundai Creta is quite apt at handling loose surface and broken roads. Don’t believe us? Here’s a YouTube video from Indian Sonic that can back our statement.
In the video, the new-gen as well as old-gen models of the Hyundai Creta can be seen wading through deep ponds, managing sticky slush, and crossing deep-rocky river beds. The video starts with a clip where the all-new Hyundai Creta can be seen crossing a bad patch of roads which is full of big potholes. Further clips are of the same fashion as well. However, at a later part, the host has added videos of the AWD trim of the Creta, which is sold in the international markets only. It can be seen makings its way through fresh snow with ease. Not just that, it is rescuing full-size ladder-frame SUVs like Mitsubishi Montero.
Talking of the all-new Hyundai Creta, it is offered with a total of three engine options – 1.5L petrol, 1.5L diesel, and 1.4L turbo-petrol. The gearbox options include a 6-speed MT, 6-speed AT, 7-speed DCT, and IVT. Also, the new-gen Creta comes with three driving modes – Eco, Comfort, and Sport. Additionally, it also gets three traction control modes – Sand, Mud, and Snow.
Furthermore, the new-gen Creta comes loaded with a long list of features. It gets a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, 10.25-inch infotainment unit with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, Bose sound system, keyless entry & go with push-button start-stop system, cruise control, automatic climate control, LED headlamps and more.
