  • 1.4-litre turbo-petrol variants removed from Creta’s lineup.

  • Continues with a 1.5-litre NA petrol and a 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine for now.

  • Expected to get the bigger 159PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol unit from the upcoming Verna’s new generation.

  • The SUV is priced from Rs 10.84 lakh to Rs 19.13 lakh (ex-showroom).

Hyundai has silently dropped the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine option from the Creta’s lineup. Now there’s no official stated reason behind the discontinuation, but fret not, as this move could make way for a bigger and more powerful powertrain option.

A bigger 159PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine, from the i30 hatch sold overseas, has been confirmed for the upcoming Hyundai Verna’s new generation and the same engine would be a fitting replacement for the outgoing turbo-petrol powertrain of the Creta. This engine will be offered with the 7-speed DCT, like earlier, as well as a 6-speed manual. 

Other SUVs in the segment, like the Skoda Kushaq, are already available with a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol unit, so that further supports the narrative of Hyundai offering the 1.5-litre turbo-petrol powertrain in its SUV, post-arrival of the RDE emission norms.

For now, the Creta continues to be available with two engine options: 115PS/144Nm 1.5-litre NA petrol engine and 115PS/250Nm 1.5-litre turbo diesel unit. A six-speed manual is offered as standard throughout the range, while the diesel gets the option of a six-speed torque converter. The naturally aspirated petrol powertrain, on the other hand, can be had with an iVT continuously variable (CVT) transmission.
