The BS VI-compliant Hyundai Creta was showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 last month and now the technical details have been officially revealed by the company.  The Hyundai Creta has set a benchmark in the segment and over the years has sold over 4.6 lakh in India. The Hyundai Creta now gets five BS VI-compliant powertrain options that include one diesel and two petrol engine options, which are already on offer in the Kia Seltos.

Design
The Hyundai Creta now gets a new muscular design with the main highlight being the new trio beam LED headlamps and LED taillamps too. It looks very different from the outgoing model with its bold new front design in the form of a cascading grille and a flared stance. The sporty rear styling is one of our favourites in the segment and even sports twin-tip exhausts for the turbo variant. We also see 17-inch diamond-cut alloys enhancing the muscular avatar.

Cabin
New features on the interior front such as a two-step rearseat reclining as well as rear window sunshade make it more spacious and comfortable for a customer. A premium touch has been added to the interiors with dual-tone Black and Greige Colour Scheme and leatherette upholstery. The front row comes with ventilated seats keeping the driver comfortable during the hot months.

Engine
There’s the 1.5-litre petrol engine that makes 115 hp at 6,300 rpm and a peak torque of 144 Nm at 4,500 rpm with the option of a six-speed manual transmission or an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). Then you have the option of the sporty 1.4-litre turbo petrol that makes 140 hp at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 242 Nm between 1,500 and 3,200 rpm available with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). The diesel is a 1.5-litre unit that makes 115 hp at 4,000 rpm and a peak torque of 250 Nm between 1,500 and 2,750 rpm, and can be had with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.

Safety:

plays an ever-growing role when buying a vehicle for customers today. Hyundai have thrown in a fair amount of features like Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Hill Start Assist Control, rear parking sensors, and a lot more. These are in addition to the now regularized airbags.

Body Colour
The Hyundai Creta is being offered in ten colour options including Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Phantom Black, Lava Orange, Titan Grey, Deep Forest (Turbo Only), Galaxy Blue, Red Mulberry and 2 Dual Tone colour schemes – Polar White with Phantom Black and Lava Orange with Phantom Black.

Launch and Price
The 2020 Hyundai Creta will be launched on 17 March and we expect the Hyundai Creta to be priced at a slight premium over the Kia Seltos which is priced between Rs 9.89 lakh for the entry-level variant and Rs 17.34 lakh (ex-showroom prices) for the top-end variant. We await a drive in the new Hyundai Creta to tell you all about how it fares against its competitors.
