Hyundai Motor India has added more safety features to its 2023 model year (MY) SUV lineup, which includes the Creta, the Venue, and the Alcazar. The three SUVs have had their engines upgraded by the company to meet real driving emissions (RDE) standards, and they are now also E20 fuel ready. The RDE norms will go into effect on April 1. E20 fuel is fuel containing 20% ethanol. The models are also equipped with the idle stop and go (ISG) feature, according to the automaker. Apart from an upgraded feature list and a more powerful diesel engine, the Venue and the Creta also come with a price hike. The updated Venue is now available in the price bracket of Rs 7.68 lakh to Rs 13.11 lakh (ex-showroom). The manufacturer raised prices across nine variants for both gasoline and diesel engines. Buyers will now have to pay an additional Rs 25,000 for the Venue. The Hyundai Creta prices have also changed as a result of these revisions. The price of every petrol variant has increased by Rs 20,000, while the cost of diesel versions has increased by Rs 45,000. The Hyundai Creta now has a starting price of Rs 10.84 lakh and a maximum price of Rs 19.13 lakh (ex-showroom).
Coming to the features on the SUVs, six airbags (driver, passenger, side, and curtain), electronic stability control, vehicle stability management, hill-start assist control, rear disc brakes, seatbelt height adjustment, and ISOFIX are now standard on the 2023 Hyundai Creta.
