Hyundai launched the second-gen Creta in India on March 16. Now, it has commenced deliveries of the SUV. And can you guess the first owner? Well, it is none other than the Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan! It isn’t surprising considering that the last car he chose himself was the Creta, as per his own admission in a quick chat with us at Auto Expo 2020. His association with the brand dates back to 1998 when Hyundai launched the Santro in our country.

Even though the exact details of his variant are still unknown, going by the images, we think it could be the top-spec SX(O) variant. This variant comes with a BS6-compliant 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine that makes 142PS of power and 242Nm of torque. It comes only with a 7-speed DCT gearbox.

Other than the turbo-petrol engine, Hyundai also offers two more BS6 powertrains on the second-gen Creta. These’s a 1.5-litre petrol motor (115PS/144Nm) mated to either a 6-speed MT or CVT, and a 1.5-litre diesel unit that puts out 115PS and 250Nm. This is offered with either a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed AT gearbox.
