    Hyundai has launched its much-awaited SUV, the Creta, starting from Rs 8.59 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).  It will compete with the likes of the Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano and the upcoming Maruti S-Cross.

    The Creta is available in a choice of three engines — a 1.6-litre petrol, a 1.4 or a 1.6-litre diesel from the Verna. A six-speed manual gearbox will be standard across all variants, with only the 1.6 diesel SX+ variant getting the option of a six-speed automatic — a first in this segment. There is no petrol automatic or four-wheel drive version on offer for now.

    In terms of fuel efficiency, the Hyundai Creta with a 1.4 diesel engine has an ARAI-certified fuel efficiency of 21.38 kpl; the highest among the three. The 1.6 diesel manual returns 19.67 kpl, the diesel automatic has a claimed fuel efficiency of 17.01kpl and the 1.6 petrol engine returns 15.29 kmpl.

    The Creta will be available in six trim levels —  Base, S, S+, SX, SX+ and the top-spec SX (O).
    The Base variant gets standard features like rear AC vents, remote locking, a 12V power outlet, a 4-speaker audio system and ABS. Meanwhile, the feature-loaded SX(O) variant comes with premium features like six airbags, leather upholstery, keyless entry and go, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and 17-inch alloy wheels.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
