    Hyundai, it seems, is either in a hurry or has missed its deadlines for launching updated products in 2017. Jokes apart, it is seldom that we see a company introducing two refreshed products in a single day. Right after we learnt that India’s second largest carmaker has launched an updated recipe for its Elite i20 hatchback, the company also introduced the Creta SUV with a similar overhaul. Prices for the updated Creta start at Rs 9.29 lakh for the entry-level E petrol variant and go all the way up to Rs 14.64 lakh for the SX+ AT variant (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi).

    So, what has changed? First of all, the E variant, that came with the diesel engine, makes way for the E+ trim with the same 1.4-litre diesel motor. It is available at a standard all-India price of Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Earlier, the E+ came with the 1.6-litre petrol mill only, at the same Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) price tag. The diesel, however, loses some of the equipment when compared to its petrol counterpart, such as the 5.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and gets a 2-din audio system instead, Bluetooth connectivity, 1GB internal memory, steering-mounted audio controls and two front tweeters.

    On the other hand, the updated Creta now has SX+ dual-tone variants which are offered with either the 1.6-litre petrol mill or the 1.6-litre diesel. Choices for the exterior are like the ones added on the Elite i20 - White & Black and Red & Black. The same dual-tone treatment is carried on the inside as well. The all-black interior now comes with red-coloured inserts. While the dual-tone petrol-powered Creta is priced at Rs 12.35 lakh, the diesel one will cost you Rs 13.88 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi).

    What’s more, the 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system has been upgraded to support Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Mirror Link and Arkamys Sound Mood System functionalities. Prices for all the variants have gone up by approxmately Rs 2,000.

    The Hyundai Creta remains to a be customer favourite in its segment. It competes with the likes of the Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano, Honda BR-V, Mahindra Scorpio and the Tata Safari Storme.
