Here's everything you need to know about the all-new 2020 Hyundai Creta.
The all-new, second-gen Hyundai Creta has been launched today, with prices starting from ₹9.99 lakh for the 1.5-litre petrol base variant - EX (MT). The top-spec 1.5-litre petrol variant – SX(O) with 6CVT – is priced at ₹16.15 lakh. The diesel variant line-up of the new Creta is priced between ₹9.99 lakh and ₹17.20 lakh, and the 1.4-litre Turbo GDi petrol variants are priced between ₹16.16 lakh and ₹17.20 lakh. All figures are ex-showroom. Listed below are the variant-wise prices:
|1.5 Petrol (MT)||-||₹9.99 lakh||₹11.72 lakh||₹13.46 lakh||-|
|1.5 Petrol (CVT)||-||-||-||₹14.94 lakh||₹16.15 lakh|

Unlike before, the 2020 Creta goes on sale in five trim levels – the E, EX, S, SX, and SX(O) – and these combined make up a 14-variant line-up. This was expected, keeping in mind that there are now three new engine options (two petrol & one diesel) and four transmission options (one manual & three automatic) on offer. The powertrain options for the new Creta have been borrowed from its sibling, the Seltos (both cars also share the same platform now).
With the generation change, the 2020 Creta looks nothing like the outgoing model and instead borrows its styling cues from the China-spec ix25. The 'Trio-Beam' LED headlamps, coupled with 'Crescent Glow' LED DRLs, form a very unique three-part layout. The new cascading grille gives the overall front fascia a very bold appeal. Likewise, the 2020 Creta gets an all-new rear fascia too, with the three-part LED taillamps and distinct 'CRETA' lettering on the tailgate giving the car an unmistakable identity. Flared wheel arches, new diamond-cut alloy wheels, integrated roof rails & rear spoiler and twin-tip exhausts (Turbo variants only) add panache to the new Creta's design.
The second-gen model has marginally grown in size, as it's 30mm longer and 10mm wider than its predecessor. On the other hand, the new car is 30mm shorter in height and offers 20mm longer wheelbase, which means the cabin space has also improved. For reasons unknown, the 2020 Creta gets a smaller 50-litre fuel tank (compared to the old car's 55-litre capacity).

The 2020 Hyundai Creta, as mentioned above, borrows its powertrain options from the Kia Seltos. This means it gets a 1.4-litre Kappa Turbo GDi petrol unit (paired to a 7DCT automatic gearbox exclusively) along with a 1.5-litre MPi naturally-aspirated petrol unit (available with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed CVT/IVT automatic). On the diesel front, there's a single 1.5-litre turbocharged U2 motor on offer (6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed torque converter automatic). Listed below are the power specs of all three engines:
|1.5 MPi Petrol (naturally-aspirated)||1,497cc||113bhp||144Nm||6MT/6CVT|
|1.5 U2 Diesel||1,493cc||113bhp||250Nm||6MT/6AT|
|1.4 Kappa Turbo GDi Petrol||1,353cc||138bhp||242Nm||7DCT|
