You don’t need to wait for a long month for you to receive a call from the Hyundai showroom dealer on your delivery of your car. Yes folks, soon after the launch, Hyundai India plans to delivers its car to the prospective customers. The Hyundai Creta will be showcased to media on July 25th with a drive happening soon. Now that, it will be launched on 21 July; Booking for the car will start from early next month with deliveries commencing soon after the car gets officially launched in India.
Hyundai Motor, the Korean car maker, has confirmed the launch date of its conpact SUV creta as July 21. Now that, Hyundai had brought forward the launch date by a couple of months to take advantage of the festive season.
The Hyundai Creta isn’t a crossover like the Hyundai i20 Active but is a proper SUV based on the Hyundai ix25, albeit in a petite dimension and will be marketed as a compact SUV. The compact dimensions and the butch looks make the Creta a great SUV option for the urban landscape.
The Hyundai Creta will be offered with both petrol and diesel powerplant options to further expand its appeal. The 1.6-litre displacement motor will be sourced from the Verna sedan.
The Hyundai Creta will carry forward features from the i20 Elite like keyless entry, start/stop button, day time running lamps, reverse camera, Bluetooth connectivity, steering mounted controls, rear AC vents, auto folding mirrors etc. Also the interiors of the Hyundai Creta will be more plush and car like as opposed to the rugged ones of its rivals.
The 1.6-litre Hyundai Creta diesel motor will generate 128PS of maximum power and healthy 260Nm of torque which makes it significantly powerful than its rivals. The Hyundai Creta petrol variant will house a 1.6-litre petrol mill under its bonnet good enough for 123PS of peak power and 155Nm of torque.
Hyundai India hasn’t revealed the mileage figures for the Creta yet. But given the fact that the Creta will employ the same motor as the Hyundai Verna it is safe to assume that the car will boast an ARAI fuel efficiency figure of around 22kmpl for the diesel mill.
The 1.6-litre diesel motor will be offered most likely with a 4-speed auto transmission. Given the fact that the Hyundai Creta is more of an urban SUV, the auto transmission will find many takers owing to the arduous traffic conditions in metro cities.
The Hyundai Creta will be positioned between its arch rivals with respect to pricing i.e. the Ford Eco Sport and the Renault Duster along with Nissan Terrano.
