Hyundai Creta is one of the best SUVs out there in the market. Hyundai recently launched the second generation model in India. The SUV now gets a brand new look, additional features and new BS6 compliant engine. But where does it stand when compared to its rivals. Let’s find out:
As is evident from above, MG Hector beats the Creta in length by 355mm. The Creta is also the smallest car in the segment in all the dimensions, be it length, width, height or even wheelbase. The Tata Harrier is the most spacious of all as it has the maximum width. Mahindra XUV 500 is by far the tallest car in the segment. The Hector comes second and the Harrier third. Harrier and Hector have the longest wheelbase in the segment i.e., 2750 mm.
Tata Harrier and Mahindra XUV 500 don’t get a petrol engine. The Creta and Seltos both share the same BS6 compliant engine in two configurations: naturally aspirated and turbo. Hector only gets a turbocharged petrol engine while the Kicks and Captur too share the same petrol engine. The performance of Hector’s turbocharged petrol engine is closely matched by that of Seltos and Creta. The Captur and Kicks SUVs only come with a standard 5 Speer manual gearbox, while others are offered with CVT/DCT as well.
All the cars in this comparison come with a diesel engine. The Hector, Harrier and XUV 500 get bigger and more powerful engines as compared to others. The Fiat sourced 2.0 Multijet engine is shared by both the Harrier as well as Hector. Kicks and Captur have the least powerful engines of all. The XUV 500 produces the largest peak torque of 360 Nm. Creta's output figures on the other hand stand at 115 HP and 250 Nm respectively. The diesel mill in the Hector, Kicks and Captur is mated to a standard 6 speed manual transmission while others get AT as well.
The new Creta was recently launched at introductory prices of Rs. 9.99 Lakh – Rs. 17.20 Lakh. It’s priced similar to its sibling, the Kia Seltos. The Captur and Kicks get limited variants and thus have lower price range. On the other hand, the Hector, Harrier and the XUV 500 are slightly bigger and more powerful
than the Creta, thus sold at higher price point. It should also be noted that the XUV 500, Kicks and Captur are yet to get a BS6 compliant. Their launch has been pushed further due to the lockdown in the country.
