    Petrol Engine Review

    • Nexon’s turbo petrol engine makes more power and has more torque than the Creta 1.5
    • Creta’s turbo petrol engine is way more powerful than the Nexon turbo.
    • Nexon turbo petrol engine is more fuel-efficient than the Creta petrol but only with the manual transmission.
    • The Nexon automatic has less mileage than both the Creta’s petrol engines.

    Nexon's engine offers more torque, so it is expected to offer better driveability compared to Creta's 1.5-litre normal petrol engine. For manual transmission, the Nexon will have lower fuel costs. With the automatic, the Nexon is lagging but it’s not too far behind the Creta.

    Is the Hyundai Creta better than the Tata Nexon?

    Price of the base variant of Hyundai Creta is Rs. 9.99 lakh and Tata Nexon is Rs. 6.95 lakh (both ex-showroom). The Nexon is much cheaper than the Creta across the board. After all, it’s one size smaller and one segment lower than the Creta.

    Naturally, the 2020 Creta is a larger car and therefore will have a much better road presence than the 2020 Nexon facelift.

    For petrol engines, Nexon's has more torque than the Creta, so it will offer better driveability compared to Creta's engine. The fuel efficiency ratings of the two cars are pretty close. The Nexon just has a slight edge with its manual transmission but loses by a small margin with the automatic.

    For diesel powertrain, both Creta and Nexon are on par. With the diesel engine, the Nexon has a noticeable advantage of the Creta because of better fuel efficiency while matching the Creta’s torque output. Especially with the automatic transmission, the Nexon’s mileage is way better than the Creta diesel AT’s.
