After making its debut at Auto Expo 2020, Hyundai has finally launched the 2020 Creta in India with prices starting from Rs 9.99 lakh, going all the way up to Rs 17.20 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The new SUV gets a major design revamp and is offered with three BS6-compliant engines. It takes on the likes of the Kia Seltos, MG Hector and Tata Harrier. What’s more? There are five variants - E, EX, S, SX and SX (O) - on offer as well . Spoilt for choice? Here’s each of them explained in detail: 

E 

We start off with the most basic variant in the 2020 Creta’s lineup. This variant is only available with the 1.5-litre CRDi diesel engine paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox.  Standard features in the E variant include bi-functional projector headlamps, dual tone bumpers, two-tone black & greige interior upholstery, and follow-me-home headlamps. It also comes with bits such as manual AC, electronically adjustable ORVMs, tilt steering,  height-adjustable driver’s seat, and a front power outlet. Safety features consist of driver and passenger airbags, ABS+EBD, rear parking sensors, driver and passenger seatbelt reminder, speed-sensing auto door lock and central locking.

Since this is the base variant, it misses out on a host of features such as alloy wheels, tri-beam LED headlamps, LED tail lamps, integrated roof rails, chrome grille, and LED DRLs. Inside, it lacks equipment like auto-folding ORVMs, automatic climate control, smart key with push button stop/start, ambient lighting and a 60:40 split rear seat. The major misses in terms of features are the lack of a touchscreen infotainment system, a digital instrument cluster, a panoramic sunroof, drive modes, USB charging and rear wipers. Safety misses include rear disc brakes, side and curtain airbags, ESC, hill start assist, rear camera, automatic headlamps and front fog lamps. This variant is the ideal pick, if you’re willing to compromise on premium features. 

EX

Next up is the EX variant that is offered with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine. As is the case with the E variant, both petrol and diesel engines are paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. It gets all the equipment  from the base variant along with bits such as a shark fin antenna, a USB charger at the front, a sunglass holder, and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, steering-mounted audio controls, and front and rear speakers. The safety kit remains unchanged.

It still misses out on bits like the bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with BlueLink connected car tech, a Bose 8-speaker sound system, and wireless charging. It also lacks equipment like alloy wheels, tri-beam LED headlamps, integrated roof rails, LED DRLs, auto-folding ORVMs, automatic climate control, smart key with push button stop/start, ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof and a digital instrument cluster. Like the E variant, it doesn’t come with safety features like rear disc brakes, side and curtain airbags, ESC, hill start assist, rear camera, automatic headlamps and front fog lamps.  

S

We now head over to the middle variant from the Creta’s lineup that continues to be offered with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Additional features in this variant include 16-inch steel wheels, LED tail lamps, integrated roof rails, chrome cascading grille, rear window sunshade, and rear parcel tray. It also gets equipment like a smart key with push button stop/start, cruise control, automatic climate control, rear USB charger, and a rear wiper with washer. Safety additions consist of a rear camera, front fog lamps, rear defogger, automatic headlamps and a driver rear view monitor. 

Some features that don’t make it to the S variant include a digital instrument cluster, ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, a bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an 8-speaker Bose sound system, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a 60:40 split rear seat. It still doesn’t get side and curtain airbags, ESC, hill start assist, burglar alarm, child seat anchor and vehicle stability management control (VSM).

 SX 

We finally head to the higher variants in the Creta lineup with the SX variant. This is the only variant that is available with all three engine options: 1.5-litre petrol. 1.4-litre turbo-petrol, and 1.5-litre diesel. Alongside that, it is also available in all gearbox combinations: 6-speed manual, IVT (1.5-litre petrol only ), 7-speed DCT( 1.4-litre turbo-petrol only), and 6-speed automatic (1.5-litre diesel only). Other feature additions include optional dual-tone exteriors (DCT), 17-inch alloy wheels in silver and gray (DCT) options, tri-beam LED headlamps, LED DRLs and a dark chrome cascading grille (DCT). The DCT option gets all-black interiors with an orange pack that consists of orange accents on the AC vents and leather wrapped steering wheel.  It also gets additional features such as ambient lighting, sports pedal (DCT), panoramic sunroof, electric parking brake with auto-hold, air purifier and driving modes. 

Other additional kit includes traction control modes, auto-folding ORVMs, drivers side auto power windows, and a 60:40 split rear seat. The biggest feature upgrade is the presence of the bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with BlueLink connected car tech as well as a BlueLink integrated smart watch app and wireless charging. Safety additions consist of rear disc brakes, ESC, VSM, hill assist, child seat anchor, burglar alarm and puddle lamps. It lacks bits like diamond-cut alloy wheels, more orange accents in the upholstery,  8-way powered drivers seat, front row ventilated seats, a digital instrument cluster and an 8-speaker Bose sound system. In terms of safety, it only misses out on bits like side and curtain airbags, an electro chromic mirror, and height adjustable driver and front passenger seatbelts.

SX (O) 

The SX (O) variant is the top spec trim from the Creta’s lineup. However, it’s 1.5-litre petrol option is only available with the IVT transmission. It is fully loaded with features like 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, more orange accents in the upholstery,  8-way powered drivers seat, front row ventilated seats, a 7-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8-speaker Bose sound system.
