Updated (Feb 15, 2022): This update of the Hyundai Creta petrol variants explained article includes the latest prices.

What Are The Pros And Cons Of Hyundai Creta Petrol?

The pros or advantages of Hyundai Creta petrol are:

  • Higher variants get a long list of features, including power driver seat, ventilated front seats, Bose sound system, tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), panoramic sunroof, 6 airbags, reclining rear seats, etc.
  • Good balance in terms of performance, fuel efficiency and dimensions
  • Option of 3 powertrains - 1.5L normal petrol manual, 1.5L normal petrol CVT automatic, 1.4L turbo petrol with DCT automatic
  • Fantastic value-for-money with the SX Executive variant
  • Being the best-selling car in its segment gives it a strong resale value
  • Widest service network for a car of its class

The Hyundai Creta petrol has the following shortcomings or problems:

  • No variant is available under Rs. 10 lakh anymore
  • The design may polarise opinions
  • EX and S variants offer poor value for money while the E and EX variants lack several must-have features
  • Features you might miss in the Creta - 360-degree camera, lane watch camera, blind spot alert, powered tailgate
  • Turbo petrol engine doesn’t get a manual transmission and carries a steep premium for what it offers

What Is The Price Of Hyundai Creta Petrol Variants?

The new Hyundai Creta petrol is available in 6 variants - E, EX, S, SX Executive, SX and SX (O). The lower 5 variants are available with the 1.5L normal petrol engine and a manual transmission. The Creta 1.5L petrol-manual range starts at Rs. 10.23 lakh and tops out with the SX variant at Rs. 14.2 lakh. The top 2 variants are available with 2 powertrain options:

  • 1.5L normal petrol engine with CVT automatic
  • 1.4L turbo petrol engine with DCT automatic

The 2 variants with the normal petrol with the CVT automatic costs Rs. 15.68 lakh and Rs. 16.89 lakh. The CVT automatic carries an incremental price of Rs. 1.48 lakh over the petrol-manual, however, it does offer some additional features to justify some of the higher price gap.

Moreover, the EX variant doesn’t justify the incremental cost over the E variant with the added features.

Moreover, most of its features are functional, which all buyers will appreciate during the ownership. So, if you don’t want to stretch your budget further, then you can compromise on the value and buy the Creta S petrol-manual variant.

The SX Executive variant is the next in line for Creta petrol-manual buyers. It costs Rs. 13.41 lakh, which is almost Rs. 1.0 lakh more than the S variant. This variant removes the infotainment unit and all the related features with it. However, it adds several useful features like:

  • Puddle lamps
  • Rear disc brakes

  • Rear headrest cushion
  • LED headlamps
  • LED DRLs
  • 17-inch alloy wheels

You can easily add an aftermarket music system and connect it with the existing speakers, steering-mounted controls and antenna. But, once you buy the car, you can’t easily add most of the other features the SX Executive variant offers. Moreover, because of the high-value features like alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof and LED headlamps, this variant manages to justify its incremental cost over all of the lower variants. Therefore, this is our top-recommended variant.

Hyundai Creta Petrol SX Exe vs SX Variant

The Creta SX variant with the petrol-manual powertrain costs Rs. 14.2 lakh (ex-showroom), which is about Rs. 79,000 more than the SX Executive. For the additional cost, this variant adds the following notable features:

  • Larger touchscreen
  • Wired Android Auto and Apple Carplay (S variant gets wireless)
  • Alarm
  • Telematics
  • Chrome door handles

As you can see, this variant mostly brings back what is removed in the SX Executive variant and adds a larger touchscreen and telematics. It also removes the wireless smartphone connectivity, which is available in the S variant. While the Creta SX is a good value for money, we strongly recommend you instead consider buying the SX Executive and add an aftermarket music system.

You should buy the Creta SX over the SX Executive only if you hate letting an aftermarket technician tinker with your brand new car while installing the music system. Another alternative to this is having it installed at dealer level as you can expect better workmanship and have the car ready to go with all the necessary features at the time of delivery.

Hyundai Creta Petrol SX 1.5L MT vs SX 1.5L CVT Variant

If you want the Creta petrol with an automatic transmission, then the SX 1.5L CVT is your most affordable option at Rs. 15.68 lakh. It’s Rs. 1.48 lakh more expensive than the SX manual, but, besides an automatic transmission, for the additional price, it also adds electronic parking brake, paddle shifters, traction modes and air purifier.

The top-spec SX (O) variant is not available with the 1.5L petrol manual powertrain. With the CVT automatic, the SX (O) costs Rs. 16.89 lakh, which is Rs. 1.21 lakh more than the SX CVT automatic. For this sum, this variant adds features like:

  • Side thorax and curtain airbags
  • Auto dimming inside mirror
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Power driver seat
  • 17-inch machined alloy wheels
  • Leather upholstery
  • Bose sound system
  • 8-inch full-colour instrument cluster

At least with the turbo petrol, the price jump to the SX (O) is much smaller. So, we strongly recommend that you buy the SX (O) variant of the Hyundai Creta petrol if you’re interested in the turbo petrol engine. It offers better value for money than the lower SX turbo variant.

Which Variant Of The Hyundai Creta Petrol Should You Buy?

Now, let’s recap the buying recommendation for the Hyundai Creta petrol buyers and start with the 1.5L petrol-manual powertrain.

The base E variant doesn’t have many must-have features. Even if you move higher to the EX variant, you only get a few critical features for a lot bigger price jump. So, you’re better off skipping both of the lower variants of the Creta petrol.

The S variant also offers poor value for money but if you don’t want to stretch your budget further, than the S variant is suitable for most budget buyers because it has a bunch of must-have features. If you can stretch your budget, then the SX Executive is the variant to get because it adds most of the features you would expect from a car at this price at the cost of the infotainment system. Thankfully, that’s an easy aftermarket upgrade. So, you are getting a very well loaded car with a lot of features without compromising on value for money. The SX Executive variant earns our top recommendation for Creta petrol manual buyers.

Even the upgrade to the SX variant is not justified given the high VFM rank of the SX Exe.

What Are The Engine Specifications Of The Hyundai Creta Petrol ?

The Hyundai Creta’s 1.5L base petrol engine makes enough power to hang among the top performers. But its torque output is much lower than that of the Volkswagen Taigun and Skoda Kushaq’s smaller 1.0L turbo petrol engines. With better torque output available at lower RPMs and for longer durations, the turbo petrols have an edge over the normal petrol engines.

In terms of fuel efficiency, the S-Cross leads the pack with figures hovering around 18.5kmpl because of its hybrid tech. The mileage figures of almost 17kmpl for the Creta 1.5L normal petrol engine remain acceptable.

Just like many other C-segment petrol SUVs, the Creta also has a more powerful turbo petrol engine. The 1.4L turbo petrol engine in the Creta is the same as the one available in the Seltos. However, in the Hyundai Creta, this engine is only available with the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission while the Seltos offers the option of a manual transmission with this engine.

Note: Check your Car EMI with - Car EMI Calculator

The Creta turbo petrol has a good power and torque output for its class. The Kicks turbo manages to offer class-leading power and torque output while the Astor turbo sits at the lower end of the segment. In terms of fuel efficiency, the Creta turbo petrol again delivers acceptable figures. The Taigun and Kushaq’s 1.5L turbo petrol have better mileage figures and their cylinder deactivation technology plays some role in achieving these figures.
