    City 2020 vs Creta 2020 | Dimension Comparison - Which One Is Bigger?

    Honda City is 4549mm long, 1748mm wide and 1489mm tall and rides on a wheelbase measuring 2600mm. The Honda City has a boot space of 506 litres. On the other hand, the Hyundai Creta measures 4300mm in length, 1790mm in width and 1635mm in height. The wheelbase of the Hyundai Creta is 2610mm and it has a boot space of 433 litres.

    A wider body normally results in better shoulder room inside the car while a higher roof makes it easier to get in and out of the car. A higher ground clearance makes it easier to go over tall speed breakers or drive on broken roads. The wheelbase is the distance between the centre of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase often results in more cabin space. A larger boot allows you to carry more luggage.

    Dimension Review

    • City is longer than Creta by 249mm.
    • Creta is wider than City by 42mm.
    • Creta is taller than City by 146mm.
    • Creta has a longer wheelbase than City; by 10mm.
    • City has 73 litres more boot space than Creta.

    In terms of dimensions, the Creta is a larger car compared to the City. So, it’ll have a better road presence than the new City. Most of that stance comes from its taller body, while the City is longer but has a much lower roofline.

    Is the New Honda City 2020 Better than the 2020 Hyundai Creta?

    Price of the base variant of Honda City is Rs. 10.90 lakh and Hyundai Creta is Rs. 9.99 lakh (both ex-showroom). The Creta is cheaper but if you prefer the fully-loaded top variant, then the City will cost less than the Creta.

    The high roofline of the Creta helps offset the City’s length advantage. In terms of dimensions, Creta is a bigger car than the City so it’ll have a better road presence than the City.

    For petrol manual powertrain, City's engine offers a bit more torque but the difference is negligible. Both the cars will offer similar drivability. The new City is a bit more fuel-efficient and therefore it’ll save you a bit in fuel costs.

    As far as petrol automatic powertrain the Creta’s 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine has phenomenal torque output and will offer better in-gear acceleration. However, it’s still not as fuel-efficient as the 2020 City.

    For diesel manual powertrain, Creta's engine offers more torque, so it will offer better driveability compared to City. However, the City diesel is more fuel-efficient than the Creta. If you want a diesel engine with an automatic transmission, then the Creta is your choice out of the two cars here. The Honda City diesel is not available with an automatic transmission.
