Hyundai's only competitor in the compact-SUV/crossover segment is a premium offering. It certainly looks like an SUV; the tall stance (190mm of ground clearance), black cladding all around, judicious use of chrome, LED DRLs, projector headlamps, 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels etc. give it a premium look that many others in the segment do not have.

The premium feeling continues on the inside. It has a dual-tone theme (black-and-beige) with a neatly laid out design. The use of leatherette around the cabin makes it feel richer. The highlight of the dashboard is the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror Link smartphone connectivity with in-built satellite navigation.
Hyundai is offering the Creta with three engine options: a 1591cc, 4-cylinder petrol, a 1396cc, 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel and a 1582cc, 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel. All three engines can be had with a 6-speed manual transmission, while the 1.6-litre petrol and diesel motors can also be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 1.6-litre motors have a good blend of performance and efficiency while the 1.4-litre diesel is for the cost conscious.

The Creta has 14 variants to choose from. The entry level 1.6L VTVT (petrol) E MT variant costs Rs 8.92 lakh, while the top-of-the-line 1.6L CRDi (diesel) SX+ AT costs Rs 14 lakh. The automatic transmission is offered on both petrol and diesel powered variants but are limited to S+ and SX+ variants only. The SX+ variants are also offered with a dual-tone paint.

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross: Maruti's premium crossover suffers from the fact that it does not look like an SUV. It is a premium offering with a good amount of standard equipment, good space for five people and their luggage and a powerful 1.6-litre diesel motor.

Renault Duster: The car that started it all, the Renault Duster is the only modern crossover in the segment to feature an AWD system. Its butch design, adequate space, CVT transmission (petrol), AMT (diesel) and all-weather ability make it score a lot of brownie points in the segment. Interior quality and limited service network make it less appealing.

Honda BR-V: Honda's offering in the segment is essentially a jacked up Mobilio with some mechanical changes to compensate for the raised stance. It is one of the only crossovers here which can seat seven people.

Nissan Terrano: The Duster's better-looking cousin (for some), the Terrano suffers from being too overpriced for its own good. It does get a diesel AMT variant which is a good option for those looking for a convenient urban SUV.

Mahindra Scorpio: The Hyundai Creta is also priced in the same price range as 'proper' ladder-frame SUVs like the Mahindra Scorpio. While it may use an old-school philosophy, it is a thoroughly modern SUV.

Tata Safari Storme: The oldest nameplate in this segment, the Safari Storme feels that way too even though it wears a slightly new skin. The Safari still has its road presence, ride quality and interior space to boast about, but its appeal is now limited to those who seem reluctant to let go of the past.

The Hyundai Creta presents itself as a great option for those looking for an urban SUV/crossover. The smart exterior design, premium interiors, punchy engines and convenient automatic transmission give it an appeal very few of its competitors can match.
