Hyundai has introduced the 2018 Creta in India with fresh set of cosmetic and feature upgrades. Slightly pricier than the old model, the SUV is priced from 9.43 lakhs to Rs 15.03 lakhs. The company’s popular SUV is available in two new colour options, passion orange and marina blue along with the dual tone colour scheme of orange and white with a black roof.
What’s good about it?
The new cosmetic upgrades and additional colour options adds an element of freshness to the popular SUV. The top-spec version is offered leather upholstery, electric sunroof, electric driver seat, smart key wrist band and a wireless charging unit. Additionally, it also offers six airbags, stability program for the automatics, parking sensors with camera and passive cornering lamps.
What’s not so good?
Although the top-spec SX (O) is offered with interesting features like six-way adjustable powered driver’s seat, a smart key band, wireless charging support, updated touchscreen infotainment system and more; it lacks an automatic transmission option. While the second to top, SX AT variant misses out on features like sunroof and wireless charging.
The best variant to buy?
Hyundai Creta SX would be a good choice to buy as it gives you an automatic option in both petrol as well as diesel trims. For those who crave for a fancier version, you have the SX dual tone option. Customers looking for a budget option and are only keen on diesel, the S variant can be a good choice.
