Is the Hyundai Tucson better than the Hyundai Creta?

Price of the base variant of Hyundai Tucson is Rs. 22.30 lakh and Hyundai Creta is Rs. 9.99 lakh (both ex-showroom). The Creta is a lot more affordable than the 2020 Tucson facelift.

In terms of dimensions, Tucson is a bigger car. So, it’ll have a better road presence than Creta. However, the Creta has better ground clearance than the Tucson.

For petrol automatic powertrain, Tucsons engine offers more torque than the Creta 1.5. But the Creta’s turbo petrol engine has more torque than the new Tucson.

As far as diesel automatic powertrain is concerned, Tucsons engine offers more torque, so it is expected to offer better driveability compared to the Cretas engine.

The Creta is also more fuel-efficient than the Tucson regardless of which engine transmission combination you choose with the Creta.

The new Tucson has more features than the second-gen Creta 2020. But, it’s also far more expensive.
