Hyundai is gearing up for the launch of one of the most significant models in its line-up, the all-new Creta, on March 17. As we inch closer to the big day, more and more details about the second-gen model keep seeing the light of day. And now, we’ve got our hands on the complete variant-wise features list of the upcoming SUV. So, read on to know what each trim level will have to offer.

In true Hyundai fashion, the 2020 Creta will be loaded to the gills with equipment. While the current-gen SUV has started to show its age, the new Creta will take the story forward in an attempt to get back to the number one position in the midsize SUV segment – a title which it has recently lost to the Kia Seltos.

The soon-to-be-launched Hyundai Creta will be available in five trim levels – E, EX, S, SX and SX(O) – and five powertrain options, adding up to 14 variants in total. Here is a complete break-up of the trim-wise features that can be expected.

In addition to an extensive features list, prospective customers will get to choose from a palette of as many as 10 body paint shades, including Mulberry Red, Galaxy Blue, Typhoon Silver, Titan Grey, Deep Forest, Phantom Black, Polar White and Lava Orange, with the last two also getting the option of a contrast black roof.    

In terms of powertrains, Creta’s line-up will closely mirror that of the Kia Seltos’. As such, it will get a 115hp/144Nm, 1.5-litre petrol engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT (or IVT, as Hyundai puts it) automatic transmission; a 115hp/250Nm, 1.5-litre diesel motor paired to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter auto gearbox; and a 140hp/242Nm, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol mill with a sole 7-speed DCT automatic transmission. Curiously, Hyundai has decided to omit a manual offering for the turbo-petrol, something that is available on the Seltos.

As we have previously reported, the petrol and diesel-manual variants will post official mileage figures of 16.8kpl and 21.4kpl, respectively, while the turbo-petrol will have a fuel economy of 16.8kpl. To know how these figures match up to those of the Seltos, click here.

With a head-turning design, contemporary interiors, extensive features and a wide range of powertrains, the new Creta will duke it out with the Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Tata Harrier, Renault Captur, Renault Duster and the Nissan Kicks in a hotly contested space. Expect prices for the upcoming Hyundai to be in the Rs 10-16 lakh range (estimated, ex-showroom).
