Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has revealed that it has crossed the one lakh booking mark for the 2024 Creta. This milestone came within 3 months of its arrival on our market in January. Notably, the updated SUV was the company's first product launch of this year. The facelifted model comes with enhanced features, a new drivetrain option, and a significantly redesigned exterior and interior. With over 13,000 units sold on average each month, the Hyundai Creta SUV has been one of the company's best-selling models in India. Hyundai also disclosed that the percentage of total bookings for the sunroof and connected car models accounts for 71 per cent and 52 per cent, respectively. The price for the Creta starts at Rs 11 lakh and goes up to Rs 20.15 lakh. Both mentioned prices are ex-showroom.

Mechanically, the Creta has three engine options: a 1.5-litre normally aspirated (NA) petrol engine, a 1.5-litre diesel engine, and a new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol unit. The first two units, producing 250Nm/114bhp and 144Nm/113bhp, respectively, were modified to meet the more stringent BS6 Phase II emission standards. The new turbo GDi petrol engine, on the other hand, puts out 158bhp of maximum power and 253Nm of peak torque. Moreover, four transmission options are available: a six-speed manual, an IVT, a standard seven-speed DCT, and a six-speed automatic.
