Hyundai Motor India has removed the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol Hyundai Creta version from its official website. Speculations are rife that the carmaker has discontinued this model in India. As for power, the delisted version is used to generate 138bhp and 242Nm. In a recent development, Hyundai India revealed the 2023 Creta in our market earlier this month with new engines and added safety measures to meet RDE norms. The 2023 model of Creta comes equipped with 1.5 litre petrol and diesel engines. According to reports, the 1.5-liter petrol engine generates 113bhp at 6,300rpm and 143.8Nm of torque at 4,500rpm. For transmission, it uses a six-speed IVT. When running on diesel, the new Creta claims to deliver 114bhp at 4,000rpm and 250Nm at 1,500rpm-2,750rpm. Both versions are now E20 fuel-ready and RDE-compliant.
The Hyundai Creta has been one of India's most popular SUVs since its launch. Additionally, it has consistently been a significant source of revenue for the company, according to industry reports. The reason behind quietly removing the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol version from the lineup has not been officially stated by the company. However, the increased cost of the compact SUV harboring the turbocharged engine could be one of the reasons.
