New 2018 Hyundai Creta Variants And Features Leaked

Likely to be launched by the last week of May, the updated SUV packs a couple of segment-first features, including a sunroof!

The Hyundai Creta facelift is around the corner and we’ve got our hands on the list of variants and features it will get. The biggest additions in the updated Creta are a sunroof, electrically-adjustable front seats, cruise control, smartkey band and a wireless phone charger. But before we dive into them, let’s check out the powertrains, shall we?


The 2018 Hyundai Creta will continue to be powered by a 1.4-litre diesel motor and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines. While the 1.4-litre diesel engine is only available with a 6-speed manual transmission, the other two engines can be had with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The performance offered by these three engines are likely to remain the same. Here’s all you need to know about them.

Engines 1.4-litre Diesel 1.6-litre Diesel 1.6-litre Petrol

Transmission 6-speed MT 6-speed MT/AT 6-speed MT AT

Variants, Prices And Colours

The 2018 Creta facelift will get a total of six variants - E, E+, S, SX, SX (Dual) and SX (O). Currently, the Creta is priced between Rs 9.29 lakh and Rs 14.49 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). We expect the updated version to cost a little bit more owing to the addition of a few segment-first features. There will be seven colour options to choose from - white, black, silver, red, orange, blue and grey. The dual-tone versions are finished in either white-and-black or orange-and-black paint. Now, let’s take a look at what each variant packs, shall we?

  • Front USB Socket (petrol only)


Creta S Variant (Over E+)

  • LED DRLs

  • Front USB Socket

Creta SX Variant (Over S)

  • Four engine-gearbox combos - 1.6 petrol MT, 1.6 petrol AT, 1.6 diesel MT and 1.6 diesel AT

  • Shark Fin Antenna

Creta SX (Dual) (Over SX)

  • Two engine-gearbox options - 1.6 petrol MT and 1.6 diesel MT

  • Standard 17-inch Machine-cut Alloy Wheels

  • Dual-tone paint options - Passion Orange + Black and White + Black 

Creta SX (O) (Over SX)

  • Two engine and gearbox options - 1.6 petrol AT and 1.6 diesel AT

  • Electrically Adjustable Driver’s Seat

  • Wireless Phone Charger

  • Six Airbags

  • ESC - Electronic Stability Control

  • Hill Assist

  • Front Seat Height Adjust

From the above list, the one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb continues to be the fact that the automatic variants are not offered in the top-spec SX (O) trim. Hence, customers wanting an automatic transmission will have to forgo features such as six airbags, wireless phone charger, hill assist and more. However, the addition of the sunroof should make the Creta even more popular and we expect existing as well as prospective customers to throng Hyundai dealerships across the country to take a glimpse at the updated version, or even bring one home. Looks like Hyundai has got yet another winner on its hands. Do you think the Renault Captur and the Jeep Compass have a chance against the updated Creta? Let us know on our social media channels.
