Hyundai Creta SX Overview
The updates in the new generation are pretty evident and praisable. The complete design theme is new, whether it’s the front grille, headlights, alloy wheels, or the rear end. With the launch of this Creta, the new cascade signature grille has also got a new makeover with a lot of chrome inserts.
The design of the Creates is more evolutionary than revolutionary. In comparison to its predecessor, all the sharp edges and corners are replaced with new soft and round ones. The front headlights are now a three LED beam setup, the throw though not that good (based on buyer’s reviews) and the DRL is split into two parts covering the headlight unit.
The fog lamp setup is slid a bit down and is equipped with a white LED throw and below that the blacked-out diffuser is placed. On the sides, the alloy wheels are placed to enhance the appearance of the SUV and a black body cladding is also there on the entire body to give it a cross-over-ish look. The ORVMs have turn indicator signals, the top has non-functional roof rails, and the roof has a big panoramic sunroof and a shark fin antenna.
The tail lights are also split into three sections, the top has a horizontal line, the mid has a supporting section to the top and bottom and the bottom has the main section of the light. They are LED and snuck fitted to the body rather than to the boot lid.
The next generation of Creta is about to launch in the near future and it will carry the same design language on which the New-Gen Hyundai Tucson is designed.
The interior of the Hyundai Creta SX feels premium and upmarket, and the number of electronics and features it has are praise able. The Creta SUV has two color theme options, one is a mixture of black and beige, while the other is pure black with red inserts on stitching and some elements in the turbo variant.

Engine, Transmission, and Driveability
Three engines are powering the Hyundai Creta with three different transmission setups. The 1.5L Petrol/Diesel and the 1.4L, Turbocharged Petrol Engine. The engine specs are mention below, have a look
|Hyundai Creta Engines||1.5L MPi Petrol||1.5L U2 CRDi||1.4L Kappa Turbo Gdi|
|Engine Type||1.5L MPi Petrol||1.5L U2 CRDi||1.4L Kappa Turbo Gdi|
|Fuel System||Multi-Point Injection (Mpi)||Common Rail Direct Injection||Gasoline Direct Injection|
|Max Power (ps/rpm)||115 PS @ 6,300 rpm||115 PS @ 4,000 rpm||140 PS @ 6,000 rpm|
|Max Torque (nm/rpm)||143,8 NM @ 4,500 rpm||250 Nm @ 1,500-2,650 rpm||242 Nm @ 1,500-3,200 rpm|
|Valves||16 Valves||16 Valves||16 Valves|
|ARAI Mileage||16.8-16.9 kmpl||18.5-21.4 kmpl||16.8-21.4 kmpl|
The maximum power in the petrol and diesel motor has absolutely no difference but the torque has changed the game completely. The 1.5L Diesel motor has almost double of the torque to the petrol naturally aspirated motor. Also the torque band in the diesel motor starts from as low as 1,500 rpms. Which helps the engine to reduce the turbo lag band width and gives the punch on even pinch of paddle pression.
On the other hand, if we look out to the 1.4L turbocharge petrol motor. Here we get more power at 140 PS and 242 Nm torque (almost near to the diesel). The thing that kicked here is too the torque band width, it starts from the lowest point at 1,500 rpm and goes up to 3,200 rpm. The torque range is quite evident and it do makes the ride more joyful and peppy. The overtakes on high are so smooth, triple digits speeds not an issue. The combination of DCT makes the ride more smoother and comfortable, it upshift the gear with negligible efforts no matter what the speed it.
The addition of the iVT (Intelligent Variable Transmission) makes the buyers to go for this semi automatic variant of Hyundai Creta SX. Here in this transmission, there is a no clutch but the gear needs to be upshift or downshift manual.
Then how its works?
Look there is a sensor in the gearbox that sense the drive is about to upshift/downshift by releasing the acceleration paddle. It does this by modulating the pressure of the pulley system in the transmission. The process adjust the pressure as per the driver input and driving conditions.
