Recently, Hyundai has discontinued the second-top SX trim of both the diesel and petrol Creta that came with the manual gearbox. The automatic Creta continues to offer SX trim. In the manual variants, the SX trim has made way for the newly launched SX Executive variant.
The Hyundai Creta comes in 14 variants, including 7 petrol variants and 7 diesel variants.
The petrol variants with the naturally aspirated 1.5-litre engine are - EX, S, SX-Executive, SX-CVT, and SX (0) CVT. In comparison, petrol variants with a 1.4-litre turbo engine are - GDI SX DCT and GDI (O) SX DT.

Creta's design is its biggest USP. The Korean carmaker has perfected the design. Though the Creta looks polarising at the beginning, it grows on you nicely over time. Creta's other USP is its premium cabin with a comprehensive list of features.
The Creta currently retails between Rs 10.16 lakh and Rs 17.87 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Rivals of the Hyundai Creta in the Indian market are - Skoda Kushaq, MG Hector, Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier, Renault Captur, Nissan Kicks, and the Volkswagen Taigun.

There are plenty of things to like about the Creta. Here are some of them:
Premium Cabin - The Hyundai Creta has one of the best cabins in its segment, no doubts about it. The premium textures and detailing on the dashboard combined with the super comfortable seats make Creta's cabin a remarkable space.
Refined Engines - It doesn’t matter which engine you choose on the Creta; one thing that stays constant is the supreme level of refinement. All the engines feel smooth, and the cabin stays pretty quiet.
After Sales Service - Hyundai’s after-sales support has always been excellent. The Creta gets extended warranty schemes with several authorized workshops. Hyundai's long chain of dealership networks ensures that you never have a service issue.
Bucket Load of Features - The Creta comes with an insane list of features and creature comforts. Some of them include a panoramic sunroof, wireless charging, cooled front seats, a 10.25-inch touchscreen, auto headlamps, all four discs, powered mirrors, and smartphone connectivity.
There are a few cons that are worth looking at before making an informed decision:
Not very fun to drive - The Creta has always been inclined towards being a family-oriented, comfortable car. It isn't the most fun to drive around corners as both the suspension and steering wheel don't seem to give you much confidence and feedback while cornering. Even the engines on the Creta aren't the most powerful in its segment. Hence, someone looking for a sporty car to drive can look for better options at this price range.
Lots of Hard Plastic in the interior - No doubt, the Creta has a great cabin with loads of features. However, you simply can't deny that the plastic quality used inside the cabin is not up to par.
Premium Pricing: With the update coming up in 2020, Creta's pricing has gone up massively. The top-spec diesel costs more than 18 lakhs on road.
The second generation update of the Creta has made it a much more desirable option. It offers almost everything that you can ask for and even more. It looks funky and premium on the outside, has a luxurious cabin loaded with features, has a bunch of great engine and gearbox options, and has a very plush ride quality. It is the perfect family car.
Hyundai has done a lot to keep Creta's competition at bay. Hyundai's designers have done a great job in distinguishing this Korean compact SUV from the rest of its competition. Creta takes comfort and luxury very seriously. It has one of the most luxurious and comfortable cabins with bucket loads of features. Furthermore, the Creta offers a tonne of engine and transmission options to the buyers. All the engines are incredibly refined and driveable, and the suspension does a great deal in absorbing the undulations on the road.
The Hyundai Creta comes with some segment-first features like paddle shifters and blue link technology. Hyundai offers a total of 5 powertrains on the Creta - a 1.5-litre diesel engine with a 6-speed auto and manual, 1.5-litre petrol with a 6-speed manual and IVT auto, and 1.4-litre turbo petrol with a 7-speed DCT transmission. All the engines on the Creta are smooth, tractable, and relatively easy to drive. However, it's the 1.4-litre petrol that's the most exciting to drive. The throttle response is brisk, and the engine revs up eagerly till the redline. As far as fuel efficiency is concerned, the Creta will give you a mileage of around 17-21 km/l (ARAI claimed).
If you are looking for a car that looks stylish on the outside, is premium on the inside, and has a comfortable ride, in short, a great family car, the Creta is the perfect option for you. The car is apt for both cities as well as highway drives. However, if you are a driving enthusiast and want a fun-to-drive car, then the Creta might not be the most sensible option for you.
