Just days before the lockdown hit India last year, Hyundai brought in the newer generation of Creta. Surprisingly, the bookings saw an immediate rush and the 2020 Creta became an instant hit as it provided all the features needed in an SUV and was also value for money over its predecessor. In May 2021, Hyundai Creta became the top-selling car beating Maruti Suzuki for the first time in all these years. We provide you with 5 reasons as to why the Hyundai Creta is a hit and the most value for money SUV present in the country!
Now, this is a subjective choice but the design of the new-gen Creta grows on you once you encounter it. The split layout is marked at the front as well as the rear profile. All LED headlights with multiple alloy wheels design and wheel covers, Creta has covered buyers of all the segments. Plus with the official accessories, you can customise the Creta according to your taste.
Hyundai now provides three engine options - a 1.5L diesel, 1.5L petrol and a more powerful 1.4L petrol. The latter churns out 140 PS of power with a peak torque of 242 Nm and is mated to a 7-speed DCT only. The other two engines generate 115 PS of power and the torque sticks to 250 Nm for the oil burner and 144 Nm for the 1.5L NA petrol. A 6-speed manual as standard is observed in both the engines while 6-speed auto for the diesel and an IVT for the petrol as optional is available.
If there's one thing that Hyundai does right even with the entry segment cars then it is the features. This department is loaded and it's safer for Hyundai Creta too. A big panoramic sunroof, larger 10.25-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, cruise control, electronic IRVM, BlueLink technology, ventilated seats, power-adjustable driver's seat, digital instrument cluster and more.
Safety features on the Creta include a tyre pressure monitoring system, six airbags, ABS with EBD and ESP, Traction Control, keyless entry, ISOFIX mount child seats, rear parking sensors, child safety lock four discs and among others.
Good Rear Seat Space and Comfort
Be it 5 passenger travelling or you are chauffeur driven, the back seat of the new Creta has got you covered. It was the same in the previous gen too and thankfully, it is better in the newer model. There's plenty of legroom and headroom for tall passengers. The cushioning of the seats is generous and offers well under-thigh support.
Hyundai Creta is priced from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 17.68 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. Now, at this price point, Hyundai has covered you with the additional warranty of highly equipped service stations at almost all parts of India and Creta holds an amazing resale value too. So buying a Creta will surely give you an excellent return if you take care of it.
