The brand-new Hyundai Creta has high expectations. Is it up to the hype?
Hyundai's most important car is the Creta. This car has been a huge success. It is amazing that almost 10,000 units have been sold every month for six years, despite it being a high-end vehicle costing well over Rs 10 lakh. Hyundai finally released a brand-new Creta, a premium vehicle that will set a new standard in class and performance. The feature list has also increased in value, but the prices have not. The new Hyundai Creta is once again the best-selling car in its class.
The new Creta is larger than the previous SUV, but is also 30mm smaller than before. The new Creta's design is similar to the Hyundai Aura. Hyundai's designers went a little too far in their quest to make the Creta look as appealing as possible. This includes the tail and nose. The front features a huge hexagonal grille, which is outlined with a chrome strip that seems a little too shiny. Next, you'll find the three-element ice cube LED headlamps with their LED DRLs. The fog lamp casing houses the turn indicators, which are located lower. The Creta, however, uses halogen bulbs, unlike its Kia rival and largest competitor, the Kia Seltos.

The rear design is more striking than the front. The rear design is more dramatic than the front. There are creases, bulges, and even unique tail lamps. The Creta's unique look is made possible by the bulging boot section and the black strip connecting the tail lamps. The new Creta silhouette is clean and offers some relief in profile. It looks stylish with its flared wheel arches and sloping roofline. The diesel car's alloy wheels are a Hyundai classic - sporty and sharply cut.
The sportier turbo-petrol version has grey alloys that are more simple. This variant gets a 'Turbo" badge at the rear, and an option to have a black roof when it comes with the red exterior colour car. Although the Creta's design is quite attractive, it can be a little gimmicky when compared to the more classy Seltos.
The interior of the Creta cabin is much more mature and sophisticated than the exterior. The dash design is simple and conventional. The centre console is a V-shaped shape with the 10.25-inch high-resolution display at the centre. Thanks to the large TFT display, which displays loads of information such as speed, trip, and tyre pressures it makes instrumentation look futuristic. The fuel gauge and tachometer are flanked by analog dials. They are small and difficult to read. The new Creta has a higher quality than the old car, but there are some cheaper parts. The speaker grille at the top of the dash could be better finished, and the plastics around climate control and the gear selector are a little too plain. You won't find fake stitching anywhere else in this cabin, even though it is not what you would expect from a car of this price.
You have two options for interior colours. The 1.4-litre turbo petrol variants come with an all-black cabin, and the diesel comes with a two-tone, beige-and black theme. The Creta's front seats are spacious and comfortable, and the cushioning is perfect. The Creta has an 8-way powered driver seat, which makes it easy to find the ideal driving position. The only thing missing is that the steering adjusts for height, not reach (no Telescopic adjust). This is a major flaw in a car that is almost Rs 20 lakh.
Rear seats are also comfortable, with good shoulder and knee room. Hyundai also removed the back section of the seat base, which allows for more headroom and provides more support under the thighs. The huge panoramic sunroof makes for a very airy cabin. Rear window sunblinds are available as well as a two-step adjustable backrest. It can accommodate three people comfortably with its wide bench. Surprisingly Hyundai doesn't offer an adjustable headrest for the middle passenger like the Seltos.
The cabin of the Creta has many storage options and is thoughtfully designed. Two sizes of cupholders are located behind the gear lever, making it easy to store a large water bottle or a cup of coffee. The glovebox is large and even the door pockets are large. Although the boot is large enough, it is not class-leading. The boot has 433 litres of storage and is well-shaped. For added convenience, you can also have a 60/40 split folding rear seat.
Technology and Features
The Creta's top models are loaded with features. There are LED headlamps and tail lamps, as well as LED DRLs. The Creta's lower models come with bi-functional halogen projectionor headlamps. You get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity as well as a cooled front seat, paddle shifters in the automatic variants and an air purifier. Auto wipers are also included, but you won't find them in the automatic headlamps.
The 2020 Creta is equipped with connected car tech. Blue Link allows owners to remotely control the engine, track their vehicle, and set up geo-fencing. Even though it is only available in the SX(O) top-spec model, this feature is still present on the manual variant. Remote engine start is possible in manual variants only if the electronic parking brake is enabled.
Hyundai has provided a wide range of safety features to the 2020 Creta. All variants have two airbags. The highest-spec version has six. All variants include the standard ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, and other safety features. Additional active safety features like Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management control and Hill Start Assist Control are only available in the SX and top-of the-the-line SXO variants. These two variants include anchor points for child seats as well as disc brakes for rear wheels. The SX and SX(O), however, have a rear parking camera.
The new Hyundai Creta, like the Seltos has one petrol engine and one diesel engine. We tested the diesel manual as well as the turbo-petrol auto. The turbo-petrol petrol motor, which is 1353cc in displacement, produces the identical 140PS and 242Nm torque as the Kia Seltos. This high-tech motor is coupled with a modern 7-speed dual clutch auto. The Creta's turbopetrol version is not available with a manual gearbox, unlike the Seltos.
This turbo-petrol Creta is a great choice if you are looking for a fast car. The motor responds quickly when you press the accelerator pedal. It feels responsive and peppy right away. Peak torque is at low 1500rpm. Beyond that, the mid-range torque is quite strong. The engine will also pull happily to its 6000rpm limit. There are three driving modes for the new Creta: Normal, Sport and Eco. The gearbox will upshift as soon as possible in Eco or Normal mode, which maximizes fuel efficiency. In Sport mode, however, the gearbox will keep in the lowest gear. The Creta is more powerful in 'Eco' and 'Normal' modes, which allow for the engine to feel the most smooth. The gearbox in 'Sport' mode becomes more enthusiastic and retains higher gears. However, it makes the throttle response much more jerky. It makes it almost impossible to drive at low speeds smoothly. The Creta managed to run the fastest times in Normal mode during our performance tests. This is because the gearbox does not shift in Normal mode and the power band remains intact. The Creta was able to go from 0 to 100 kmph in 9.4 seconds using our timing gear. The in-gear times were quick thanks to the fast gearbox. The engine runs very quietly and smoothly at low speeds and when you are cruising. However, it can get a little thumpy after 4000rpm. It isn't as smooth or quiet as a four-pot TSI motor like the one in Skoda and VW.
While the diesel engine is identical to the original car, it is slightly smaller and now BS6-compliant. The 1.5-litre engine produces 115 PS of power. This is 13PS less than the old engine. However, you don't notice it while driving. This engine is smooth and refined from the beginning. The turbo lag is minimal, so gear shifts are kept to an absolute minimum. The Creta diesel manual is a car that's easy to drive around the city. The engine's powerful nature makes it easy to overtake on the highway. It also cruises smoothly thanks to its tall gearring. You will find your life easier with the light clutch and smooth gearbox. The Creta diesel scored decent times in our performance tests. It took 12.24 seconds to go from 0 to 100 kmph, which is slightly longer than the old car. However, the car's good driving ability meant that in-gear times were much faster, with 30-80kmph taking only 6.85 seconds.
Ride and Handling
Its suspension setup is what gives the Creta its real plushness. The Creta excels at town speeds due to its smooth, low-speed ride. This is despite the 17-inch wheels. This compact SUV feels soft and controlled thanks to its well-judged spring rates. The suspension is remarkably good at absorbing bumps even on rutted surfaces. You don't feel any imperfections and it doesn't crash as much. There is some firmness at low speeds, but not enough to be uncomfortable. The Creta is a calm and composed companion on the highway, even at higher speeds. The Creta is also very quiet and can cut out road noise.
The old car felt a little sloppy at high speeds and nervous, but the Creta is now solid and has great straight-line stability. Although the Creta can change direction very quickly even when it's in a corner, it's not particularly fun to drive. Although the steering is precise and smooth, it is only a tool to point the front wheels. There is also a lot of body roll.
Five variants of the new Creta are available. Only the SX and SX(O), higher-spec variants have automatic options. The base-spec EX variant is a good choice for those with limited budgets, as it comes standard with a decent number of features. Our variants explained article provides a comprehensive explanation of all variants. Hyundai offers a 3-year/unlimited km warranty, which can be extended to five years.
The Hyundai Creta is a compact SUV that's impressive. The Hyundai Creta is spacious, comfortable, and loaded with features. It also comes with powerful petrol or diesel engines. It is a vast improvement over the old car in terms of both drive and feel. There are some flaws, such as the polarizing design and the absence of features like front parking sensors or telescopic adjuster for the steering. The Hyundai Creta is a solid product. Will the Creta again be a leader in its segment? Stay tuned to CarDekho for the Creta-vs Seltos comparison.
What we Like in Hyundai Creta :
Automatic gearboxes available for refined engines
Strong market value
It could be better
Driver's car not
There are many powertrain options for the Hyundai Creta. It is also one of the most feature-rich SUVs available. The strong brand following that Creta enjoys here in India has helped the new design to be a success.
Why should it be bought?
A refined and economical diesel engine with segment-first features that adds strong market value
Why shouldn't I do it?
Not a driver's car, but a quirky styling
What's it all about?
Few cars have been able to make themselves a household name in India. It was the Hyundai Creta's first generation that did it, when it dominated the mid-size SUV market. Now there's a new one. The diesel manual variant of the Hyundai Creta is available at a price range between Rs 9.99 to 15.8 lakh (extended showroom). We also drove the new turbo-petrol version. You can read more about it here.
The new Creta's polarizing styling is sure to divide opinion in terms of its appearance. The design will grow on you if you look at it for long enough. The Hyundai's global design language is now the split headlamps, taillamps, and cascading grille. Although it isn't as traditional-looking as the older Creta, it still manages to draw attention. The new Creta stands out among its competitors thanks to some striking features like the floating roof and split-DRLs. The car's unique styling is also complemented by the alloy wheels with multi-spoke 17-inch wheels. The new Creta has a slightly different dimension. It is wider, longer and lower than the previous model. This is also evident in its stance. The new Creta has a global design, and its appearance isn’t as important as many may think.
The cabin is modern and stylish, and it immediately grabs your attention. The 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment screen dominates the center console. We also liked the new Audi esque steering wheel design. Hyundai has made the cabin feel more luxurious by using a beige-black combination and aluminum inserts throughout. The cabin of the Creta is an inviting place. We think that soft-touch materials on door panels and dashboard would have made the experience even more enjoyable.
We find the use of hard plastic and the simplistic controls for the air conditioner to be a bit clunky. There's plenty of space to store your small items. The compact steering wheel is comfortable to hold, and the buttons feel tactile. The digital screen behind the steering wheels is flanked on both sides by analog needles. The screen is large and easy-to-read. It is a segment-first feature but it doesn't work well with its animated interface or tawdry look.
The seats are very comfortable, with ample support for the lateral and under-thigh. The driver's seat is also equipped with an electric adjustment and the front seats have a cooled function. Thanks to the narrow A-pillars, and the large windscreen, visibility is quite good. Light-coloured materials make the cabin feel spacious. The huge panoramic sunroof adds to the spacious feeling. The back seat provides ample head and legroom, as well as a comfortable sitting position. The backrest contours and recline allow the passenger to stay longer at the backbench. The downside is that the shoulder space for three is too small and could use more thigh support.
The boot space can hold a large suitcase, along with several medium-sized suitcases. There is also room for duffle bags and backpacks. The cargo space is quite usable, and the loading lip doesn't rise too high. This makes it easier to load heavy luggage. The new Hyundai Creta is packed with many features, including powered mirrors, all-four discs, Bose sound system and smartphone connectivity. The features include all-four discs and powered mirrors, auto headlamps, all-four discs as well as Bose sound system, smartphone connectivity (TPMS), ambient lighting, wireless charging and integrated air purifier.
Hyundai replaced the older 1.6-litre diesel engine with a 1.5-litre U2 CRDi that is BS6 compliant. It can be mated to either a six speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The manual derivative has a power output to 113bhp at 4000 rpm, and 250Nm from 1500 rpm (as opposed to the 128bhp/260Nm 1.6).
The diesel settles to a quiet hum when you crank it up. There are very few vibrations inside the cabin. The clutch is released and there's a lot of grunt when you get off the line. The clutch is also smoother than the old Creta, which had a naturally spongy clutch action. The turbo lag is around 1800-2500rpm, but the engine feels very linear beyond that. The turbo will start to spool up at 2000rpm and then it surges up to 4500rpm. The engine noise starts to filter inside the cabin despite the insulation. It isn't as loud as you would expect from a diesel engine, and it is manageable.
It doesn't matter how heavy you keep the engine in, as long as it is still in the middle of the rev range, the gearbox will not need to be pushed. This applies even when you are cruising through city traffic. The engine's relaxed nature allows it to maintain a rev counter of around 2000rpm when driving on highways. For quick overtakes, the strong mid-range is ideal as you just need to lightly feather the throttle. The engine isn't stressed when you cruise at triple-digit speeds, and the new Creta feels much more confident and stable than the old model.
The clutch is easy to use, but the gear-lever is not. The gear-lever feels a little twitchy when it is in the up or down position. The steering is heavier than expected, but it can feel off-centre. It isn't very direct, with three turns locking lock-to-lock. The new Creta's body roll is not entirely absent, but it is under control. The ride is firmer at slower speeds. It is not uncomfortable or jarring, but there are sharper bumps in the cabin. The Creta can also navigate small imperfections and undulations easily as it increases in speed. The brakes are a powerful, steadfast force that allows the SUV of 1360kg to stop/slow down at all speeds.
The diesel-powered Creta is now available in turbo-petrol trim. This SUV would appeal to those who are looking for an affordable, reliable, and comfortable vehicle that can be used for everyday driving. The new-generation Creta has many other advantages, including a spacious cabin and a wide range of features, many of which are first-in-segment, and Hyundai’s proven after-sales service. The Creta's styling and its lack of driver-oriented features may cause some to disagree, but it will not stop car buyers from recognizing that the Creta remains a well-designed family SUV.
The new Hyundai Creta is a viable alternative to the Tata Harrier's Nissan Kicks, Tata Harrier's Renault Captur, MG Hector and the Kia Seltos. You can also check out the Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and Mahindra XUV300 for a sub-four metre SUV at a starting price.
The Hyundai Creta is now in its second generation. It was first displayed at the 2020 Auto Expo. The Hyundai Creta is the ultimate D-segment car and comes in 14 versions with three engine options and three gearbox options.
It has distinctive features on the exterior, such as a three-dimensional cascading grille featuring muscle like vertical or horizontal patterns, and a sculpted bumper with skid plates. Its overall appeal is enhanced by its flared wheel arches and carefully crafted crease lines.
Two boomerang-shaped LED DRLs, LED Head Lamps, and cleverly placed fog lamps give the SUV futuristic styling. The Creta's new features include a panoramic sunroof and LED headlamps. The interior was revealed in blacked out windows and windscreens. More details will be available closer to the launch date.
The Creta comes with BS6-compliant petrol and diesel engines. The 1.5-litre petrol engine produces 112 bhp/144Nm. It can be ordered with either a CVT, or a 6-speed manual. A 1.4-litre Turbo GDi petrol engine producing 138bhp/242Nm is available. It is limited to a seven speed DCT. A 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel unit with 113bhp/250Nm is the only one available. It can be ordered with either a six speed manual or six-speed auto.
Since its launch in 2015, the Hyundai Creta has been the most popular car in this segment. Its combination of powerful engines with a strong feature set made it the best-selling vehicle in the segment. It is a strong competitor to the Nissan Kicks and Renault Duster, the Kia Seltos and Captur, as well as other cars such as the MG Hector or Tata Harrier.
