This dual-tone exterior is available in two body color combinations: White & Black and Red & Black. The company has also introduced a new Executive Variant E+, which comes equipped with electrically adjustable ORVM with LED turn indicators.

The Creta has forward leaning stance with muscular wheel arches for squad stance.

      No Hurry relax.

    July 18, 2015 at 8:10 PMJul

    It seems the SX-(O) variant is not offered in Automatic transmission. Is that correct?? Why??

    • IndiaCarNews

      July 31, 2015 at 8:10 AMJul

      Yup, you can buy the automatic gearbox with the SX+ diesel variant only. Why did they do it – only they can tell. 🙂

      • B N Yadav

        September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

        It is all commercial. You may get automatic in petrol also

    • B N Yadav

      September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

      But there are others in the same car with automatic gear

  3. Rakesh

    July 19, 2015 at 8:10 PMJul

    I am planing to buy. but I am confused in between i20 active and creta…may be also price will higher side than i20 active…
    What do you suggested???

    • IndiaCarNews

      July 31, 2015 at 8:10 AMJul

      The Creta being a premium compact SUV is obviously pricier than the i20 Active that is nothing but the beefed up i20. So if you want more space, better performance and more comfort, and you can extend your budget – go for the Creta.

      • B N Yadav

        September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

        I agree in that

    • B N Yadav

      September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

      I believe i20 is not very power and performance car. Difficult climbing steep height. model wise it is OK

    July 21, 2015 at 8:10 PMJul

    what difference a 17inch alloy & 16 inch alloy makes ? in terms of performance and looks ? which one is better ?

    • IndiaCarNews

      July 31, 2015 at 8:10 AMJul

      If a company is offering you the same car with two different sizes of wheels, the bigger ones would be slightly better in terms of road grip and stability, while the smaller ones usually return better fuel efficiency in real conditions. That said, there isn’t any significant difference in the overall performance of the two.

      • B N Yadav

        September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

        I do not agree that a bit larger wheel is low in mileage instead it will give more mileage. You may loose very slight pickup in initial few seconds of pushing the car.

    • B N Yadav

      September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

      17 inch alloy is certainly good in terms of its performance, handling, safety and look wise. better go for it.

  5. Rajiv

    August 1, 2015 at 8:10 PMAug

    My budget is petrol base model. Is it worth a buy. Understand for heavy Creta it is not the right choice. Please advise as I cannot increase my budget.

    • Akshay

      August 13, 2015 at 8:10 AMAug

      yes. Worth a buy if your car doesn’t runs a lot. Diesel cars which don’t run atleast 1 lakh km a year are costing you more on maintenance. So petrol car is actually cheaper in long run. I’ve booked 1.6 SX petrol

      • Dhruv

        August 16, 2015 at 8:10 PMAug

        Heyy hows petrol performance wise?

        • B N Yadav

          September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

          only performance wise, petrol is considered to be good

      • B N Yadav

        September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

        My dear Akshay, Now days due to advancement in almost all the module and different system, diesel car is the cheapest in running cost as well as maintanence. No problem its your choice and you can go for petrol versions which is liked by most.

    • B N Yadav

      September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

      There are variety of brand with variety of models. Choose the model as per your need and budget. Please compare everything and buy

    I am really interested to buy creta petrol sx+, but i heard petrol motor is uninspiring. Should i buy it or not?

    • B N Yadav

      September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

      Go ahead you will apreciate this creta petrol sx+ SUV

  7. Amit G

    August 17, 2015 at 8:10 PMAug

    I have similar confusion. I am planning for SX+ petrol, but read reviews that it is that engine which cannot take much load. If you load it with 3-4 passengers with boot capacity occupied upto 60-80 percent, you need to push a lot to make the car moving. That means, the petrol engine isn’t that effective…? Kindly respond at earliest as I am to book the car in this week itself.

    • Dj

      August 31, 2015 at 8:10 PMAug

      Reading the same line in one of the reviews confused me too, but after driving it i realised this can be felt in any petrol cars because of lesser torque compared to diesel but the 1.6 petrol of creta isn’t that bad, but don’t expect thr surge that you will feel in creta diesel 1.6. But 1.6 vtvt is decent enough and extremely buttery smooth and refined engine and gearbox.

    • B N Yadav

      September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

      The problem you have mentioned is common with all the vehicle should it be petrol or Diesel with heavy loads. Now choice is yours and go for 1.6 diesel instead, becaus it has high torque (pulling power) and high bhp. Current days diesel engines are so much so refiened that it is smooth, powerful and highly sensitive with very less cost in servicing due to advancement of CRDI and other system. Other things depends upon your driving.

    August 18, 2015 at 8:10 AMAug

    Hi, I want to purchase Creta 1.4 L diesel base model, is it value for money?
    Is this vehicle lacking in power? how is the driving comfort? I heard lot for 1.6 Diesel & 1.6 Petrol but not seen any user review on 1.4 L diesel. Can you guide me on this.

    • Dhruv

      August 31, 2015 at 8:10 PMAug

      1.4 l is frugal engine and use of proper gear ratios makes the car past the turbo lag powerful enough. Below the 1800 mark it does feels laggy but once past it, has enough grunt for the car this size. You can go for it.

      • ravi

        October 6, 2015 at 8:10 PMOct

        Even I bought 1.4 Diesel S model couple of months back and drove in heavy traffics (will zip zap at signal jumping) as well as on highways and I feel very comfortable with this SUV in all aspects. 1.4 Diesel is CRDI (regular and proven + great mileage) and 1.6 engines are VGT (Vertical Geometrical Turbo) which will adjust the power / torque and lag when varying from higher to lower speeds and vice-versa but due to no temperature difference there is lot of automation which was brought in the engine which requires testing and that carries risk as per my study with these VGTs. I went for test drive in 1.6SX and there is no lag relative to 1.4 but it was quite negligible. Highways on 5th Gear with 100 kmph was great in 1.4 CRDI and well controlled due to EBS and I cannot ask more than that being Non-Highways driving fan esp. in India

    • B N Yadav

      September 7, 2015 at 8:10 PMSep

      Creta 1.4 Diesel is having quite good pickup and turbo powered engine. It is good for travelling greater distance in little cost on fuel with considerable power. City mileage 12-13 kmpl and more than 21 kmpl on highway.
      If your are too sporty and you can have 1.6 diesel which will give you about 10-12 km/liter in heavy city traffic. highway traffic you will get around 18kmpl. this is all on mannual transmission. Overall both good SUV.

    Is it better to buy the top end verna crdi 1.6 sx or mid variant creta 1.6 sx crdi which has less features

    • IndiaCarNews

      October 20, 2015 at 8:10 PMOct

      Hi Sayeed,

      This solely depends upon your requirement and taste. If you want high seating position, a better view of the road and an SUV (though urban), the Creta should be your pick.

  10. Rajiv

    September 27, 2015 at 8:10 AMSep

    My monthly running is about 500_700 km n planning to buy creta diesel top model, for its performance n feature list. Am I right in my decision? People say for this distance, I should go for petrol. Kindly advise what is the problem with diesel.

    • IndiaCarNews

      October 21, 2015 at 8:10 AMOct

      Hi Rajiv,

      If your monthly run is up to 700kms, we would recommend you to instead go for the petrol version of the car that’s both cheaper to buy and maintain. There’s no problem as such with the diesel version, it will just cost you more; and maintenance of a diesel variant will always be more than the petrol variant of the same car.

    • atul

      October 16, 2015 at 8:10 AMOct

      who told u navigation system and rear camera missing in sx + petrol version

    • IndiaCarNews

      October 20, 2015 at 8:10 PMOct

      Hi Richu,

      You rightly pointed out that the 1.6 SX diesel misses out on features like rear parking camera, AVN and few others that are offered with the 1.6 SX+ petrol. As far as fuel efficiency is concerned, this depends upon several factors such as road conditions, maintenance and driving habits. So while we cannot tell you the exact mileage figure, this may vary between 10km/l – 13km/l in city, and about 15km/l on highways.

    • Editorial Team

      Hyundai doesn’t have an AMT-equipped model in its lineup, and we don’t recommend for any aftermarket modification. You can lose the warranty of the vehicle in such cases.
