Indian Autos Blog reader, Mr. Charan Kumar, has sent us a hoard of spyshots of the Hyundai Creta at a dealer stockyard, ahead of its market launch on July 21, 2015. At least three different variants of the Creta are seen in these images – Creta diesel SX, Creta diesel SX (O) and the Creta diesel AT.
The AT variant will be offered only in a single SX+ trim, and is identified easily thanks to the ‘Auto’ badge on the bootlid. The SX (O) variant is also visually distinguished by its 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. Further, the interior spyshots show the SX (O) variant, which gets black seats with white contrast stitching, and a leather-like fabric for the doorpads where the contrast theme continues.
The SX (O) will be available only on the diesel manual, which relies on a 1.6-liter CRDi engine to produce 128 PS. Other engine options include a 1.6-liter 123 PS Dual VTVT petrol, and a 1.4-liter CRDi diesel, paired to a 6-speed manual.
HMIL (Hyundai Motor India Ltd.) revealed in a statement yesterday that it had received over 28,500 enquiries and over 10,000 bookings for the compact SUV. According to reports, the car maker aims to sell around 5,000 units of the Creta in the domestic market each month.
