Priced between Rs 9.44-15.04 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi), the newly launched Hyundai Creta facelift is now available with three engine options, two transmission options and five trims. The engines include a 1.4-litre diesel motor producing 90 bhp, 1.6-litre petrol engine churning out 123 bhp and a 1.6-litre diesel motor generating 128 bhp. The 1.4-litre diesel motor is available only with manual transmission, while the 1.6-litre engines get the option of a six-speed automatic transmission. However, Hyundai India has not offered automatic transmission for the top-spec SX (O) trim. This means that the customers buying any of the automatic variants will have to miss out on a sunroof and wireless charging.

Recently, two new colors have been added – Marina Blue and Passion Orange along with new Dual Tone Passion Orange and Black. The 2018 Hyundai Creta takes against the likes of the Renault Captur, the Maruti S-cross and the Honda BR-V.
