- Hyundai is offering the new SX Executive trim with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines.
- The SX Executive petrol is priced at Rs 13.18 lakh, while its diesel counterpart costs a lakh more.
- It is more economical than the SX trim by Rs 78,000.
- While it misses out on the bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen system, it gets an 8-inch unit with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a panoramic sunroof, and cruise control.
- The Creta is priced from Rs 9.99 lakh to Rs 17.70 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Hyundai has launched the Creta’s new mid-spec SX Executive trim. It is available with both petrol and diesel engines, paired only with a 6-speed manual. As reported by us a few days ago, the SX Executive trim slots in between the third-from-base S and second-to-top SX. Here’s how it’s priced compared to the latter:
|Fuel Type||SX Executive 6-speed MT||SX 6-speed MT||Difference|
|Petrol||Rs 13.18 lakh||Rs 13.96 lakh||-Rs 78,000|
|Diesel||Rs 14.18 lakh||Rs 14.96 lakh||-Rs 78,000|
The new SX Executive trim is more affordable than the SX trim by Rs 78,000 while being nearly a lakh more expensive than the S in both the petrol and diesel lineups. As a result, the former loses out on some features available in the SX such as the bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen system with the connected car tech but the unit can be purchased via as an optional accessory.
It also misses out on outside chrome door handles, voice recognition button, Arkamys sound system, and burglar alarm. However, it does get an 8-inch touchscreen system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 17-inch silver-finished alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, cruise control, and auto climate control. Safety features include rear disc brakes, electronic stability control, and hill assist.
Hyundai has provided the SX Executive trim with the 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol (115PS/144Nm) and diesel engines (115PS/250Nm). Both engines get only a 6-speed MT. Other variants equipped with these engines also get an optional CVT (for petrol) and a 6-speed torque converter (for diesel). The Creta also has a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine (140PS/242Nm), paired with a 7-speed DCT (dual-clutch automatic) only.
The Creta is priced between Rs 9.99 lakh and Rs 17.70 lakh. It goes up against the Kia Seltos, Renault Duster, Nissan Kicks, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross, as well as the upcoming Skoda Kushaq and Volkswagen Taigun.
