Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which will be best Creta 2020 or Seltos?
  • First both belongs to different segment creta is an mid size suv and eco sport is an sub combat 4meter suv. Hmm xuv300? I don't think it's the best and it doesn't have segment leading future and dash board is not so pleasing and the price is too high comparing to other competitors in this segment and boot space is very low. Try check venue, sonet, nexon will give you an best option
  • I think you should purchase XUV300 as the top model’s on road price would be around 12.8 lakhs and it has much more features than that of creta or any other car in this segment in this price range. It’s value for money.
  • Both Creta and seltos are good, but the maintenance cost of both is the higher side, XUV 300 is good with features but maintenance is much higher. for hatchback Maruti S cross is the best choice with low maintenance cost.

Q. What is the difference between SX(O) and SX model in Creta?
  • There are actually many differences between SX(O) and SX1). Dual tone Diamond-Cut alloy wheels in SX(O) vs Single tone Machine-Cut alloy wheels in SX 2). Bose 8 speaker set up with badging in SX(O) vs Regular 4 speaker set up in SX 3). Leather Upholstery in SX(O) vs Fabric Upholstery in SX 4). Ventilated front seats in SX(O) vs Regular seats in SX 5). Electrically adjustable driver seat in SX(O) vs Manually adjustable driver seat in SX 6). 7” Digital Speedometer (with 3 different colours for different drive modes only in automatic variants) in SX(O) vs Regular analogue dials in SX 7). Air purifier in all variants of SX(O) vs Air purifier only in Automatic variants of SX( Manual variants don’t have an Air purifier) 8). Electronic Parking Break with Auto-Hold function in all SX(O) variants vs Electronic Parking Break with Auto-Hold function only in automatic variants of SX( Manual variants come with a regular hand break) 9). Remote Engine Start to cool the cabin before you get in is available in SX(O) variants, Remote Engine Start to cool the cabin before you get in only available in Automatic variants of SX, that too with the bluelink app only(Manual variants don’t get this feature). In Automatic trims of SX you already be getting a lot of goodies that you’ll be getting in the top of the line SX(O) variant, so I’d say go for the SX if you’re option for the Automatic trims. But if you’re opting for the manual trim, then you should make a decision according to your budget because you’ll be getting a total of 9 things in SX(O) over the SX.
  • You get diamond alloy cut stylish wheels, digital air purifier, bose audio system, ventilated front seats in the SX O and you get normal silver alloy wheels, normal air purifier, Hyundai (Arkamis)audio system and fabric front seats in SX.
  • ALL diffs cant be mentioned here there are many of them . Basically its cost diff you see o verity is loaded

The Smartstream engine produces the same power as the Kappa engine line – 100 ps or 120 ps – but enables 16% higher peak torque output for 120 ps variants (200 Nm).
