Mahindra XUV500 AT vs Hyundai Creta AT – Comparo

Ashwin Ram

Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

The Mahindra XUV500 automatic was launched yesterday, and the Hyundai Creta automatic is its closest rival. Here is a brief tech-spec comparo.

The 2.2-litre mHawk turbo-diesel engine on the XUV500 AT produces 142 PS at 3,750 rpm and 330 Nm at 1,600-2,800 rpm, and delivers an ARAI-certified mileage of 13.86 km/l. The 1.6-litre CRDi engine with VGT on the Hyundai Creta AT produces 128 PS at 4,000 rpm and 260 Nm at 1,900-2,750 rpm, and returns an ARAI-certified mileage of 17.01 km/l.

While both products are based on a monocoque platform, the XUV500 is a three-row mid-size SUV, whereas the Creta comes under the compact SUV segment. However, both products are equipped with a traditional torque-converter 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Aisin 6-speed autobox on the Mahindra XUV500 is the same transmission that is being used on the SsangYong Tivoli and the SsangYong Korando C (diesel).

The Creta AT is offered in only one variant, which is not the range-topping model. This means customers will have to miss out on side and curtain airbags, ESC, VSM, Hill Start Assist and 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. The XUV500 AT is offered in three versions -W8 (Front-Wheel Drive), W10 (Front-Wheel Drive) and W10 (All-Wheel Drive), and the top-end is generously equipped with 6 airbags, static bending headlights and a sunroof.
