The Hyundai Creta’s range-topping SX (O) trim comes with a 7.0-inch instrument cluster, an 8-speaker Bose sound system, leather upholstery, auto dimming inside rear view mirror, remote engine start stop, powered driver’s seat, front ventilated seats, height adjustable front seat belts and 6 airbags. The Creta SX (O) variants are available with the 1.5L petrol, 1.4L turbo petrol and 1.5L diesel engine options. There is no hybrid powertrain.
The Toyota Hyryder has been offered with the brand’s 1.5L TNGA Atkinson Cycle (114bhp) and 1.5L K15C mild hybrid (103bhp) powertrain options. The strong hybrid setup delivers a claimed mileage of 27.97kmpl. The Hyundai Creta petrol, on the other hand, promises fuel efficiency of 17kmpl.
