The Creta has been a blockbuster SUV for Hyundai right from its launch in 2015. The company gave the model a mid-life refresh in May this year, and the Creta has been scaling new heights ever since. According to Hyundai dealers, the facelifted SUV has recorded more than 40,000 bookings in just two months.
Apart from minor styling tweaks, the Creta gets the addition of many features, some of which are much sought after these days, like a sunroof. It also gets a powered driver’s seat and wireless phone charging in the top variant. With the update, it’s the E+ (one level above base) trim that’s become the bestselling variant. The E+ gets the option of a 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.4-litre diesel engine, and features like electrically adjustable wing mirrors, a 5.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, steering-mounted controls and a 12V power outlet, depending on the engine option. The Creta E+ is priced at Rs 11.63 lakh for the petrol and Rs 11.75 lakh for the diesel (ex-showroom, Delhi). The more powerful 1.6-litre diesel hasn’t been offered on this trim.
The company has witnessed a surge in demand for petrol variants of the Creta in the last few months – contributing as much as 32 percent to the bookings. As far as sales numbers go, Hyundai managed to sell 11,111 units of the SUV in June 2018, out of which the petrol-engined model sold 3,583 units and the diesel sales were at 7,528 units.
