Hyundai Creta made quite a stir when it was launched last year and the company has managed to deliver 1.25 lakh Creta SUVs since then in India. Celebrating Creta’s first anniversary, Hyundai has introduced a special anniversary edition variant in the Creta besides two other variants; S+ variant in diesel automatic and petrol Executive variant. The anniversary edition Creta will be available with both petrol and diesel engines in SX+ trim.
Hyundai recently gifted anniversary edition Creta to ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal on her stupendous performance in the Australian Open. The anniversary edition Creta is priced at Rs 12.23 lakh for the petrol version and Rs 13.76 lakh for the diesel version, about Rs 38,000 costlier than the respective SX+ manual transmission versions. For that amount, you get dual tone exteriors with glossy black roof along with C-pillar and integrated spoiler, 17” diamond cut alloy wheels, black Shark Fin antenna, Jet wing inspired body graphics, bright silver skid plates, all-black theme dashboard with red accents, black seat fabric with red inserts, 7” touch screen AVN system and leather wrapped steering wheel with audio & bluetooth controls.
The anniversary edition Hyundai Creta will be a limited edition version however, Hyundai has alongside it introduced two more variants in the Creta line-up. An important addition is the introduction of Creta diesel automatic in S+ variant which was previously available in SX+ variant only. Since Creta S+ diesel automatic is priced at Rs 13.58 lakh, about Rs 94,000 less than the SX+ diesel automatic Creta, it will make owing the Creta diesel automatic easier.
Hyundai has added an Executive variant (E+) to Creta petrol’s line-up that sits in between the base variant of Creta petrol and the S variant, priced at Rs 9.99 lakh. This variant gets touch screen audio (5”) along with steering audio & bluetooth controls and tweeters, a sporty roof rail, electrically adjustable ORVM with LED turn indicators & rear AC vents making it supremely VFM over the base Creta which is priced at Rs 9.17 lakh.
Besides the new variants, the Creta now gets a new exterior colour - Earth Brown.
