Makes 1.6 Diesel AT variant more affordable.

Hyundai has quietly launched the more affordable version of the Hyundai Creta Diesel AT variant, which is based on the S+ grade. It’s priced at INR 13.56 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi), making it around Rs. 1.06 lakh less expensive than the Creta SX+ Diesel AT.

So far, the Creta Diesel AT variant was only available in the top-end SX+ grade (pictured).

This follows the launch of the petrol AT variant (only in SX+), and comes at a time when there is an increasing demand for SUVs equipped with automatic gearbox. So far, it was only available in the top-end SX+ grade. With the diesel variant now available in the more affordable S+ grade, more prospective customers can join the diesel AT bandwagon.

Compared to the SX+ grade, customers will miss out on features such as projector headlamps, dual tone grille, push button start, automatic climate control, and rear wiper in the S+ grade. Regardless, it comes standard with a 7 inch touchscreen audio system with 6 speakers, bluetooth streaming, 1GB HDD, dual airbags, ABS and foglamps.
