Hyundai Creta 2020 First Impression!


Hyundai Creta 2020 First Impression!

by admin | November 23, 2020


Hyundai’s Creta has been a very popular SUV since its launch in India in 2015.

While there weren’t any significant players that could knock it off, the tech savvy world is difficult to keep up with. Not too difficult for new cars as they come up with updated tech. So naturally, it is important to keep up with fight competition and Hyundai has done just that. Launched in March this year, the new Creta not only looks different but also comes with updated tech, new features, new engines and much more!

Exterior:
Starting from the front, the new Creta gets new LED DRL’s, new triple beam headlamps and a typical new- gen huge front grill. The side profile looks beefier but the 17- inch diamond cut profile wheels gives a sort of a geeky vibe. The LED striped tail lamps at the rear and a twin ‘tip’ exhaust give it a very different look, obviously. We personally think the looks of the Creta 2020 are a bit average. While it has a muscular feel to it, there are elements that make it seem low key and toned down. A combination that is quite difficult to make it a success.

 

Interior:
The inside of the new 2020 Creta is more interesting. The top of the line variant gets a mix of while and black while the Turbo GDI variant gets all Black interior with red highlights. A refreshed dashboard, 10.25 inch infotainment touchscreen system, a 7 inch instrument panel, a panoramic sunroof, wireless charging, air purifier, a TPMS system, a cooled glove box, LED reading lamps, a BOSE audio system, raise- able sun blinds, a new steering wheel takes this car to a whole new level in this segment in terms of the ambience it offers.
 

2020 Hyundai Creta Price and variants:

The variants of the Creta 2020 are well spread out. Starting from the E variant, EX, S SX, and SX(O) at the top, prices begin from 9.99 Lakhs Ex- showroom and go upto 17.20 Lakhs. While it does seem like a competitive price especially in the mid variants, the top variants go a tad higher. The car comes in many colors though- 10 of them!

 

Engine and power:

The 2020 Hyundai Creta comes with three BS6 engine options- a 1.4-litre Kappa Turbo-GDi petrol engine that produces 140PS and 242Nm of torque. In typical Hyundai style, it is mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox. The second petrol engine option is a 1.5-litre MPi motor that produces 115PS and 144Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed manual transmission unit or a CVT gearbox. The third option is a 1.5-litre U2 diesel engine that produces 115PS and 250Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter unit.

 

While Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier and MG Hector have been making the competition in this segment pretty melodious. The 2020 Creta with its features and price has been making the right kind of noises.

    Tata Motors likes to stay in the news and they have always been quite successful at that. They have a habit of launching either subtle updates or special editions or even new variants of their cars almost every month. This time it’s a great news for Black lovers.

          Tata motors have filed trademark for #DARK and Camo editions of their budget range of cars, the Tiago, Tigor, Altroz and the Nexon. The #DARK edition is what we have seen on the Harrier already. The Harrier #Dark edition featured a new Atlas Black colour scheme with Glossy black finished alloy wheels. The

    interiors too were given an all-black treatment with faux metal glossy grey accents on the dashboard and doors. We can expect the same treatment to be given to the other cars as well.

           As a result of the success of this special edition, the manufacturer has decided to launch this edition on all of their cars including the Tiago, Tigor, Altroz and Nexon. This #Dark edition scheme however, just like on the Harrier, will be available only on the top spec XZ+ variants of the Tiago and Tigor. The Altroz will receive this paint scheme only on the XZ and Nexon #Dark will be available on the XZ+, XZ+(S) & XZ+(O) variants along with their AMT equipped versions.

           The other special paint scheme that is expected to launched is the CAMO edition. Though we are not sure about it’s details or colour scheme, it is safe to expect a white and black camouflage theme either only on the roof or the whole body.

            Apart from these already available Tata cars, Tata Motors will also be introducing these #Dark and Camo schemes on the upcoming flagship Gravitas SUV as well.

            These #Dark and Camo special colour scheme are expected to be priced around Rs 30,000 - 40,000 depending on the car model. Stay tuned for further details on these special editions from Tata Motors.

    which is further connected to the headlights. The front fascia resembles the Toyota Highlander SUV and Hilux pick up truck to a certain extent.

    The bumper has also been made to resemble an SUV and looks beefier with a faux skid plate. The fog lamps are located lower down in the bumper on the lower variants whereas the higher variants get LED DRLs integrated with the fog lamps on the regular location. There are no major changes on the sides except for the new dual-tone Alloy wheels. The rear too looks exactly the same except for minor changes in the tail lamps.

    Interior

    The interior of the new Crysta offers a new larger infotainment system which is expected to feature Android Auto and Apple car play. The Indian version is expected to receive a different faux wood treatment as well. Apart from these changes, the overall layout and comfort will remain the same.

    Powertrain

    Mechanically, no changes are expected and the updated model is expected to get the same engine options as before. The 2.4-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox generates a maximum power of 150PS and maximum torque of 343NM. The 6-speed automatic-equipped diesel variants, however, generate a slightly higher torque figure of 360NM. The 2.7-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine on the other hand produces a maximum power of 167PS and Max torque of 245NM through either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed Automatic transmission.

    Launch and pricing

    This new facelifted Innova Crysta expected to be priced slightly higher than the outgoing models, the price could increase by Rs60000 to Rs100000. At present, the base petrol variant is available in India with an ex-showroom price tag of Rs.15.66 lakhs while the top-spec diesel variant is priced at Rs.23.63 lakhs. Stay tuned for further updates on the new Innova Crysta.


    The popular performance version of the Octavia- the RS has a new version- the RS 245 and straight away, it has some striking numbers. Starting with the price- at 35.99 Lakhs, the introductory price tag is quite brave to be honest. But again, only 200 units of this car will be available in India so yes, it does have that special touch to it.

    Talking of more numbers- the RS 245 is equipped with the 2.0 Litre TSI petrol unit that churns out 245 PS and 370 NM of torque. Connected to a 7 Speed automatic Dual Clutch Gearbox compared to

    the earlier version that had a 6- speed unit, the RS 245 is expected to leave behind its predecessor in terms of acceleration as it now crossed 100 Kmph in 6.6 seconds. Power is also 15 PS more compared to the older model. Skoda claims that the top speed of the Rs 245 is limited to 250 kmph. We told you, these are some really striking numbers.

    While the performance has changed, the exterior remains the same mostly. A sports butterfly grille, gloss black touches, projector headlamps, LED DRLs, LED tail lights, sporty tailpipes, the sport vRS badging, 18- inch glossy Black Dual Tone alloy wheels make this car very appealing to look at. We the like the way it looks like a normal sedan but has some prominent highlights to it that don’t scream performance but when you need it, it is all at your disposal. So much, that it will surprise many!

    The interior does look like a normal Skoda Octavia apart from some exception like RS seats with perforated leather and red stitching, 3- spoke flat bottom steering wheel with paddle shift. LED ambient lighting, an 8 –inch touch screen infotainment system with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, digital instrument panel, dual-zone Climatronic air conditioning suggest that comfort and convenience is in no way compromised for the sake of performance. Some optional features include Black Alcantara sport seats and a 12- way electrically adjustable driver and passenger seats.

    The Skoda Octavia RS 245 also comes with loads of safety tech like ABS, ESC, Mechanical brake assist (MBA), multi- collision brake (MCB), adaptive front- light system (AFS), Anti- slip regulation (ASR) and Electronic differential lock (ESR). So, this car then does add a lot to the confidence.

    Available in five colours like Race Blue, Magic Black, Rallye Green, Corrida Red, and Candy White. The Skoda Octavia RS 245 is a highly desirable performance car for enthusiasts who want to drive tastefully.
