Hyundai Creta Bookings Open; To Be Available In Two Top Variants
BANGALORE: Its official, the pre-launch bookings for Hyundai’s most awaited compact SUV ‘Creta’ is open at dealer level in India for an amount between 40,000 to 50,000, depending on the region. Well not only that, the bigger news we have here is that the Creta is expected to come in two top variants like that on the Verna—the SX and SX (O), reports Autocar.
Having scheduled to launch on July 21, 2015, the Creta looks like a cut down version of its elder sibling the Santa fe but certainly not short of features. The Creta will be powered by 1.6-litre petrol and diesel motors for now, with the possibility of a 1.4-litre diesel variant being offered some time later.
Features And Variants
On the exterior the Creta is quite stylish as it carries a singular hexagonal radiator grille with three horizontal slats, a projector head-lamps, vertical fog lamps, black plastic cladding running all around the body and roof rails in chrome. On the inside, the SX Variant is said to get a dual-tone dashboard and seats, standard infotainment system without a touch-screen option, climate control, reverse camera with display in the rear-view mirror, reverse parking sensors, standard radio antenna. Whereas the SX (O) variant may feature a 17-inch Diamond-cut alloy wheels, push-button start with keyless entry, bigger touch-screen infotainment system with display for reverse camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel, shark-fin radio antenna and additional chrome strips running over the bumpers and door handles. But again the mentioned features may be variant specific.
The Hyundai Creta is expected to be priced in the range of 8 lakh—12 lakh (ex-showroom) and Creat’s entry into the compact SUV segment makes it certain that the SUV will rival against the Ford Ecosport, Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano and the upcoming Maruti Suzuki S-Cross in its segment.
