A leaked image of a Hyundai Creta recently suggested that a new variant was on its way and now, the manufacturer has silently launched it. The SX Executive variant that will sit between the S and SX variants has been launched in both petrol and diesel engine options at a price of Rs 13.18 lakh and Rs 14.18 lakh (both prices ex-showroom), respectively. With this, the SX Executive variant is about Rs 78,000 more affordable than the SX variant, however, will only be available with a manual transmission.
Based on the SX variant of the Creta, the SX Executive boasts a list of features that include a shark fin antenna, steering-mounted controls, a Bluetooth mic and a USB port. What it misses out on is a factory-fitted music system, however, could be made available as an accessory.
The SX Executive variant also doesn’t get chrome on its door handles, rearview monitor, voice control system, and a burglar alarm. What it does get is a panoramic sunroof, along with wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, cruise control and climate control as standard.
The trim will be available with the option of a 1.5-litre petrol engine or a 1.5-litre diesel engine. It will not have the option of the most powerful engine option, which is the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol.
In related news, Hyundai launched the much-awaited Alcazar 3-row SUV in India last week. With underpinnings borrowed from the Creta but with some heavy modifications, the Alcazar is offered in six and seven-seat configurations. In comparison to the Creta, the Alcazar 6-seat model will feature two captain seats with a centre armrest with storage and more. Click the link above for all details.
