Hyundai Creta will be offered in six trim levels- Base, S, S+, SX, SX+ and SX(O). To be offered in a choice of three engine options, and two transmission options, the new Creta brochure has already been officially revealed. What we await, are the mileage claims and variant wise pricing.

The two diesel and one petrol engine options on offer are 1.6 liter U2 CRDi diesel and 1.4 liter U2 CRDi diesel along with a 1.6 liter Dual VTVT petrol engine. The 1.4 liter diesel offers 90 PS power while the 1.6 diesel is capable of 128 PS and the 1.6 petrol offers 123 PS power. While all engines are mated to a 6 speed manual transmission as standard the SX+ 1.6 liter diesel will be the only variant to receive an automatic transmission. This will be in the form of a 6 speed dual clutch gearbox.

Once launched, Hyundai Creta will compete against the likes of Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano and upcoming Maruti S-Cross. Hyundai aims to sell 5,000 units of Creta every month. Obviously, this depends on how they price the car. And to know the price first, watch the LIVE webcast of Hyundai Creta launch below.
