Hyundai Motor India has launched the facelifted Creta SUV at Rs 944,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The refreshed SUV is available in five trims, three engine options and a choice of two transmissions. The top-spec SX (O) MT diesel carries a price tag of Rs 15.04 lakh.

Compared to the outgoing model, the facelifted Creta differentiates itself by getting a larger, chrome-lined hexagonal grille, a thick new front bumper with separate housings for the front fog lamps, a new black chin and a slightly tweaked rear bumper.

The facelift also gets the option of a dual-tone exterior finish, along with its list of monotone finishes. Single-tone options include white, orange, black, silver blue and red, while the dual-tone options are white with black, and orange with black.

Hyundai has upgraded the level of kit on each variant, and even the base E trim – which came with safety features like dual-front airbags and ABS – now gets its standard kit updated with driver’s seat height adjustment and a front sliding armrest. In addition to features like 17-inch alloy wheels, projector headlamps, cruise control and the AVN infotainment system with an IPS display, the top-spec SX (O) also comes with a powered sunroof, cruise control, six-way adjustable powered driver’s seat, a smart key band, wireless charging support and six airbags.

It retains the same 90hp, 1.4-litre diesel; 123hp, 1.6-litre petrol; and the 128hp, 1.6-litre diesel engines.. As before, the 1.4 diesel is mated only to a six-speed manual while the 1.6-litre engines get the option of a six-speed torque-converter automatic as well. However, the automatic is not available on the top-spec SX (O) trim, which means buyers of the automatic versions will have to make do without features like the sunroof and wireless charging.

The new Hyundai Creta will be pitted against Renault Captur (Rs 999,000-Rs 14 lakh), Maruti S-Cross and the Honda BR-V (Rs 921,000-Rs 13.39 lakh).

Till end-April 2018, the Creta has sold a total of 277,261 units in India, 84,556 diesel variants and 192,705 petrol.
