Affordable by a substantial margin, the new Creta SX Executive variant gets a panoramic sunroof, cruise control, and much more. The 10.25-inch Bluelink equipped infotainment, however, is optional.
Hyundai India has introduced Creta in a new variant – SX Executive – which is positioned between the S and the SX variant. The new SX Executive Variant is offered with both 1.5-litre petrol and turbo-diesel variants. The price for the petrol-powered Hyundai Creta SX Executive begins at Rs 13.18 lakh, while the diesel one asks for a premium of Rs 1 lakh. The diesel model has been priced at Rs 14.18 lakh. Both prices are ex-showroom.
Compared to the SX variant, both petrol and diesel Creta SX Executive variants are now affordable by Rs 78,800; however, the new variant misses out on a few features.
Starting with the drivetrain option, the SX Executive variant is offered with a six-speed manual only – the (optional) automatic gearbox has been reserved for the higher SX variant.
The SX Executive misses on a few more features including chrome door handles, an Arkamys stereo system, burglar alarm, and a voice recognition button. The Bluelink-equipped 10.25-inch infotainment system has been given a miss too; however, customers can opt for the same by paying extra. An eight-inch touch-operated infotainment system is standard, with Bluetooth connectivity, Apple Carplay, and Android Auto.
The features that are included with the SX Executive trim include a panoramic sunroof, cruise control, automatic climate control, rear disc brakes, electronic stability control, hill assist, and 17-inch alloy wheels.
The Hyundai Creta SX Executive is not offered with the more enthusiast-oriented 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine – it has been reserved for the SX and the SX(O) variants of the Creta, which are priced between Rs 16.67 and 17.71 lakh (ex-showroom).
