The second-gen Hyundai Creta is offered with BS6-compliant engines and new features. Let’s see how it stacks up against its rivals

Hyundai Creta vs rivals

The Kia Seltos has been dominating the compact SUVs segment for quite some time now. This segment was once led by the Hyundai Creta itself. Hyundai has now launched the second-gen Creta in India and has priced it from Rs 9.99 lakh to Rs 17.2 lakh (ex-showroom India). With its Kia cousin placed as its prime competitor, here’s how the new Creta fares against the Seltos as well as other compact SUVs:

Kia Seltos

  • Hyundai offers the second-gen Creta with the Kia Seltos’ 1.5-litre and 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engines. Both compact SUVs are the most powerful and torquiest offerings in the segment. 

  • While the 1.5-litre engine is mated to either a 6-speed MT or CVT (continuously variable transmission), the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit in both SUVs comes with a 7-speed DCT (dual-clutch transmission) gearbox. The turbo-petrol engine in the Seltos also gets the option of a 6-speed manual transmission.

Nissan Kicks

  • However, the Renault-Nissan SUVs are only offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox. 

  • When the fuel efficiency figures of the petrol-powered compact SUVs are considered, it is the second-gen Creta that takes the cake.

  • Next-gen Scorpio, scheduled to launch in 2021 is expected to offer a petrol engine too.

Diesel:

Both the new Hyundai Creta and the Kia Seltos are offered with BS6-compliant 1.5-litre diesel engines. Mahindra, however, offers the current-gen Scorpio with a set of BS4-compliant diesel engines.

Hyundai Creta

Most Fuel Efficient: Hyundai Creta 

  • As Renault-Nissan won’t be offering BS6 diesel engines, there are only three diesel-powered compact SUVs on offer. 

  • Mahindra offers the Scorpio with two BS4-compliant diesel engines-- 2.2-litre and 2.5-litre engines. With a maximum output of 140PS and 320Nm, the Scorpio is the most powerful and torquiest compact SUV in the segment. 

Hyundai Creta 6-speed manual gearbox

  • While Hyundai and Kia offer their diesel-powered SUVs with both 6-speed manual and automatic gearbox, the Scorpio is offered only with a 5-speed and 6-speed manual transmission. 

  • The diesel-powered Creta is the most fuel efficient compact SUV amongst the lot.
