Recipient of Indian Car of the Year 2016 (ICOTY) award, new Hyundai Creta has been one of the best-selling SUV in India ever since it was launched last year.
With more people aiming to buy Creta, Hyundai India has added a new variant to the line-up. This new variant is S Plus Diesel Automatic. It is priced from INR 13.56 lakh, ex-Delhi, which means it is cheaper by INR 1.06 lakh as compared to the existing diesel AT on offer.
A notable launch in the Indian automotive industry, Hyundai Creta immediately excelled in popularity. Hyundai Creta registered about 1 lakh bookings since launch launch. Production had to be stepped up to meet growing demand and decrease waiting period, which is about 6-8 months on average.
Hyundai India has invested INR 1000 crores into the Creta project. It is offered in six trim levels Base, S, S Plus, SX, SX Plus and SX(O). Features on offer includes engine Start/Stop, auto air-conditioning, projector headlamps and LED DRLs. Interiors are seen with flexible seating arrangement and steering mounted audio controls while leather seats, 5” touchscreen audio system, electric folding ORRVMs and dual airbags with side and curtain airbags are also evident.
The new Hyundai Creta engine specifications include a 1.6 liter Dual VTVT petrol engine offering 123 PS power, a U2 1.4 liter CRDi engine capable of 90 PS power and a U2 1.6 liter CRDi VGT engine offering 128 PS peak power.
