Q. My budget is 10-12 lakh. Want to go for diesel. Should I buy Hyundai Creta 1.4 e plus diesel or 1.4 s diesel?? Or should go for i20 active sx diesel? please help.
  • I20 is good but it is kind of dated now and sales are not that great because the introduction of VENUE which is built on the same platform of i20 active.. so instead of paying more for 1.4 lit creta and getting less features in return, go for venue which is correct choice for you. it does the both jobs of hatchback and compact suv, the key point of venue is the ground clearance of 190mm same as i20 active & creta you can glide of over the potholes & speedbrakers with an ease. So i suggest you to go for venue
  • Go for Creta 1.4 EX diesel costing 12L plus (around12.80L) on road price. 1.4 S diesel is minimum 1L costlier. Better to go for Venue 1.4 SX CRDi which has more feature than Creta and in your budget too. It has same power and torque as there in Creta.
  • Both the cars are worthy to buy. In Creta, you will get a commanding view with added ride height but you won't get much features in its base trim. On the other hand, Hyundai i20 Active SX diesel is packed with features that ticks most of the right boxes in a regular buyer list. Though, opting one will depends on your requirement. Do take a test drive in order to judge your driving comfort. Click on the link to compare them: https://bit.ly/2LQ9PMV

Q. I want to buy i20 active sx or creta sx petrol which one is better option
  • Off course Creta SX petrol. This is the best SUV around 14L, feature loaded and powerful.
  • I20 active is very good car to drive and by looks. It looks like baby creta. But if you do not have any budget issue the you should prefer creta.
  • I20 sx is city ride vehicle and creta is an SUV useful for city and long rides and of course is a premium vehicle..
