New Delhi, January 13, 2019: Hyundai has updated the Creta for 2019 by adding to the SUV’s equipment list and introducing a new top-spec variant – the SX (O) Executive. The Creta is now available in a total of six variants, ranging from the base E trim to the range-topping SX (O) Executive.
On the outside, the refreshed model gets LED tail-lamps at the rear on the higher-spec SX, SX (O) and SX (O) Executive trims. The SX variant also gets a dual-tone colour scheme for its manual variants.
On the inside, the air conditioner gets eco-coating across all variants and the car will be available with a smart key band in the higher-spec SX (O) and SX (O) Executive trims. The range-topping SX (O) Executive trim also gets ventilated seats at the front.
According to reports published in autocarindia.com The 2019 Creta gets more safety kit as standard than the outgoing model – like rear parking sensors, seat-belt reminder and speed alert system – across all its variants.
The refreshed SUV will be available with the same three engine options as its predecessor. The 1.6-litre petrol mill puts out 125hp and 151Nm of torque, while the 91hp, 1.4-litre and 130hp, 1.6-litre diesel motors produce 219Nm and 260Nm of torque, respectively.
The new Creta gets the 1.6 petrol on the E, E+, SX, SX (O) and SX (O) Executive variants. And while the 1.6 diesel is available in the S, SX, SX (O) and SX (O) Executive, the 1.4 diesel comes only on the E+ and S trims. The automatic gearbox is paired only with the 1.6 diesel S, and both petrol and diesel SX variants.
It is interesting to note that on the S trim, the lower-powered 1.4-litre diesel can only be had paired to a manual gearbox while the 1.6-litre diesel S variant does not have a manual option at all.
