The full list of 2020 Hyundai Creta accessories and their pricing will be released in the days to come
Hyundai India has launched the 2020 Creta SUV at an attractive starting price of Rs 9.99 lakh ex-showroom (introductory) and bookings have already touched 10,000 units. The new Hyundai Creta borrows a lot from the Kia Seltos (see comparison) and is arguably the better package. However, many have criticised its styling for being “a bit overboard” or “weird” compared to the older BS4 model which was a good-looking SUV.
Now, the official styling accessories of the 2020 Hyundai Creta have been revealed. It comes in the form of two kits: Performance and Adventure. Even if the names seem a bit misleading, the accessory kits are strictly cosmetic. The styling kits are meant to enhance the looks of the new Creta, but do they really do that?
2020 Hyundai Creta Performance, Adventure Kit
Starting with the Hyundai Creta Performance Kit, skirts, skidplates and mirror caps come as part of the package. They are finished in a rather tacky red shade and stay true to what some may refer to as “factory rice”. We prefer the 2020 Hyundai Creta in its fully-loaded stock format. Still, the Adventure styling pack is a decent choice especially compared to the Performance kit. It comes with more prominent skid plates and door claddings, alongside some additional chrome bits (which we are not a fan of).
The 2020 Hyundai Creta styling accessories are just a small part of a whole list of fitments that are coming under Hyundai Mobis (the South Korean brand’s part division). Prices of the same will be shared in the days to come. It is not news that the Indian automotive industry is going through a state of confusion with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In fact, FADA has reached out to the Supreme Court to seek an extension to the deadline for clearing off BS4 stock — read more details.
Coming back to the Hyundai Creta, the SUV shares its powertrains with the Kia Seltos. There are three engines on offer: 1.5-litre NA petrol (113hp/144Nm), 1.5-litre diesel (113bhp/250Nm) and 1.4-litre turbo petrol (138bhp/242Nm). The power plants are available with a CVT, 6-speed AT and 7-speed DCT, respectively while a 6-speed manual transmission comes as standard.
The 2020 Hyundai Creta is feature-packed and deliveries have already commenced in the country. The very first owner of the five-seater SUV is none other than Hyundai India’s brand ambassador, Shah Rukh Khan. The Creta locks horns with the Nissan Kicks, Renault Duster and Kia Seltos directly while the Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass and MG Hector also come at similar price points.
