How does the S-Cross’ 1.3-litre DDiS 200 perform in a real-world encounter against the Creta’s bigger 1.6-litre CRDi?

The urban compact SUV segment is quite a popular one. Two of the most sought after products here are the Hyundai Creta facelift and the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross. While Maruti has done away with the explosive 1.6-litre diesel engine on the S-Cross, the Creta is still available with the bigger and more powerful 1.6-litre diesel engine. Does a bigger, torquier and a more powerful unit make any drastic difference in the real world performance and efficiency? We find out.

Specifications and Tested Fuel Efficiency

 

Hyundai Creta 2018

Maruti S-Cross

Engine

1582cc, 4-cylinder

1248cc, 4-cylinder

Power

128PS@4000rpm

90PS@3850rpm

Torque

Fuel Efficiency as tested (City/highway)

13.99kmpl/21.84kmpl

19.16 kmpl/20.65kmpl

The Creta gets a 300cc advantage over the S-Cross, and it shows in the superior power and torque numbers. However, the S-Cross pulls a fast one when it comes to fuel economy within city limits thanks to its SHVS mild hybrid system. That said, if long highway drives are a regular feature, the Creta seems to be the better option as it beats the S-Cross by a very small margin. With the all-important fuel efficiency figures out of the way, let’s check out the performance figures, shall we?

Acceleration and Roll-Ons

 

0-100kmph

30-80kmph (3rd gear)

40-100kmph (4th gear)

Hyundai Creta

10.83s

7.93s

13.58s

Maruti S-Cross

13.42s

9.45s

16.22s

Difference

2.59s (S-Cross slower)

1.52s (S-Cross slower)

2.64s (S-Cross slower)

The real-world numbers just reiterate the fact stated on the spec sheet. The S-Cross comes out significantly slower in outright performance, be it off the line or in-gear acceleration required to make overtakes. The S-cross cannot be considered slow - it is just that the Creta with its bigger and more sprightly engine offers better performance than the former.

Braking

 

100-0kmph

80-0kmph

Hyundai Creta

43.43m

26.75m

Maruti S-Cross

43m

26.58m

In real world, braking should be given more priority than picking up speed and it’s one area where the S-Cross performs slightly better than the Creta. The difference is less than a metre but that could just make the difference when a panic braking situation arises. Related: Hyundai Creta 2018 vs Renault Captur: Real-World Performance Comparison
