    Rumour: Cheaper E Plus And EX Variants Of Hyundai Creta To Soon Get 1.6-Litre Diesel Engine

    by V3Cars Team on Wednesday, Oct 16 2019

    The Hyundai Creta SUV will soon get the punchier 1.6-litre diesel engine option in the lower E Plus and EX variants. The move could be a result of stiffer competition in the segment. Or, may be they just have an excess of BS4 1.6-litre diesel engines, which will become irrelevant after the BS6 norms.

    Hyundai has a habit of haphazardly pricing its variatns. Rather than have a fixed premium for a certain piece of kit, the difference varies significantly between variants and models.

    For instance, the difference between Creta S 1.4 diesel manual and Creta S 1.6 diesel automatic is Rs. 1.43 lakh. For that sum, you get a bigger, more powerful engine and an automatic transmission. In the case of Creta SX 1.6 manual and Creta SX 1.6 automatic, the difference is Rs. 1.6 lakh. For that amount, you only get the automatic transmission even though the price difference is bigger.

     

    Creta E Plus And EX 1.6 Diesel Price

    Hyundai will announce the pricing very soon. Because of the irregular pricing between variants, it’s difficult to accurately predict how expensive the additional 200cc or so is going to be compared to the equivalent 1.4-litre variants.

    We’re expecting Hyundai to price them competitively with a nominal price hike over the 1.4-litre variants making them redundant. Perhaps even discontinuing the 1.4-litre diesel variants. Thus, making it a sweeter deal for you if you’re considering buying the E Plus or EX variants of the Creta with a diesel engine.

    We may see a similar tactic play out with Verna’s lower variants as well that run on the smaller 1.4-litre diesel engines. The new Venue uses these smaller 1.4-litre diesel engines. The Venue even qualifies for lower tax bracket because of its smaller dimensions and sub-1.5-litre diesel engine.

    At present, the Hyundai Creta’s diesel range starts at Rs. 9.99 lakh for the E Plus 1.4-litre diesel variant, and which goes up to Rs. 15.69 lakh for the top-end 1.6 diesel SX(O) Executive variant.

    Here are the differences between the 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre diesel engines:
