To boost to those sales figures, Hyundai has added yet another variant in the Creta line-up, the SX Executive. The SX Executive will be available on both, the 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol as well as the 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine. This new variant will slot in between the S and the SX that are currently on offer in the Creta line-up.

Hyundai Creta SX Executive variant: what features does it lose?
The big feature delete from the SX Executive is the infotainment system. The 10.25-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Hyundai’s Blue Link connected car features has been removed and no infotainment system has taken its place. Instead, a plastic blanking cover has been added to fill the void in the dashboard. Other changes include the lack of the Arkamys high-end audio setup, voice recognition and the burglar alarm. However, Hyundai will offer the SX Executive with a factory fitted Bluetooth mic, steering-mounted audio controls, shark-fin antenna, rear view camera and USB ports, in case buyers want to retrofit an aftermarket infotainment unit or dealer fit the one that is available on the higher trim levels.
