Hyundai Creta Loses Out On Two Popular Variants
The Creta’s SX trim with the 6-speed manual gearbox has been axed due to the recently launched SX Executive trim
Hyundai offered the second-to-top SX trim in both the petrol and diesel lineups.
The SX petrol MT was priced at Rs 13.96 lakh while its diesel counterpart costed a lakh more.
It had got a near-identical similar equipment list as the SX Executive but the highlight was the a touchscreen system.
The SX trim with the automatic transmissions will continue to remain on sale.
Hyundai has priced the Creta between Rs 9.99 lakh and Rs 17.70 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The Hyundai Creta recently got a new mid-spec SX Executive trim in both the petrol and diesel lineups. Now, as per our dealers, the carmaker has discontinued the second-to-top SX trim, albeit only the MT-equipped petrol and diesel variants due to the introduction of the SX Executive. That said, Hyundai is yet to take down the prices of the said variants from its website.

One of the main reasons for the discontinuation of only the MT-equipped SX variants could be due to the unavailability of automatic transmissions with the SX Executive trim. While the latter misses out on a touchscreen system altogether, it does share a few features with the SX trim including a panoramic sunroof, cruise control, and auto climate control. Hyundai has priced the SX Executive variants at Rs 78,000 less than the SX petrol and diesel MT, priced at Rs 13.96 lakh and Rs 14.96 lakh respectively.
Hyundai offered the SX trim with both 1.5-litre petrol (115PS/144Nm) and diesel engines (115PS/250Nm). The transmission options for both were as follows:
1.5-litre petrol- 6-speed MT and CVT
1.5-litre diesel- 6-speed MT and 6-speed torque converter
The Creta is priced between Rs 9.99 lakh and Rs 17.70 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It takes on the Skoda Kushaq, Kia Seltos, Renault Duster, Nissan Kicks, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross and the upcoming VW Taigun.
