    At a time when there is a larger shift towards petrols in India, and rivals like the Renault Duster and Nissan Kicks have gone petrol-only, Hyundai has revealed the diesel engine-powered variants are the most popular version of the second-gen Creta. As per the company, the booking count for the second-gen Creta has crossed 30,000 units, of which 55 percent orders have been for diesel versions.

    Hyundai has also stated the new 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine has been well received. The engines on offer with the new Creta include a 115hp, 1.5-litre petrol (with a manual and a CVT automatic gearbox), a 115hp, 1.5-litre diesel (with a manual and torque converter auto gearbox), and a 140hp, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol (with just a DCT automatic unit).

    The Creta went on sale just prior to the nationwide lockdown and is yet to see a full calendar month of sales. Interestingly, with 3,212 despatches in the limited days of operation in May, the Creta managed to top the sales charts  for the month, marking the first time a Hyundai, a well as the first time an SUV, was the bestselling model in a month.
