Hyundai Creta It has been one of the best selling mid-size SUVs in its segment since its launch in the market. The SUV has recently been updated to meet the upcoming BS6 stage 2 emission norms. Now, Hyundai has made changes to its variant lineup by removing the entry-level trim and exterior colour.
Hyundai has discontinued the signature Mulberry Red color option from the Creta line-up. The SUV is now available in 6 paint options – Denim Blue, Titan Grey, Typhoon Silver, Phantom Black, Polar White and Polar White with Black Roof.
Hyundai has also dropped the SX Executive trim from the Creta line-up. This trim level was introduced in 2021. It was positioned between the S and SX variants. The SX Executive was available with two engine options – a 115bhp, 1.5-litre 4-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol and a 115bhp, 1.5-litre 4-cylinder turbo diesel. A six-speed manual gearbox delivering power to the front wheels was offered as standard.
The 2023 Hyundai Creta is available with two powertrains – a 1.5L NA petrol and a 1.5L diesel. Both the powertrains have been upgraded to meet RDE emission norms and are E20 fuel compliant. Hyundai has already discontinued the 1.4L turbo petrol engine. This engine will be replaced by the new 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine that was recently introduced in the Alcazar SUV. It will also power the soon-to-be-launched new-gen Verna sedan.
Hyundai is also working on the new Creta, which will get India-specific changes. The Creta facelift is reportedly to be launched in early 2024. The new model will receive significant design changes and an upgraded cabin. Adding to this, the SUV will also get Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS).
