Speaking to carandbike recently, Tarun Garg, Director - Sales, Marketing and Service, Hyundai (India), revealed that most of the 2020 Hyundai Creta orders have been specified with a diesel engine. “I’m very happy to inform that 55% of the bookings for Creta are for diesel,” Garg said.

Hyundai offers the 2020 Creta with a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine. The 2020 Creta 1.5-litre diesel commands a premium of INR 1.05 lakh* or INR 1.50 lakh* over the 2020 Creta 1.5-litre petrol, depending on the configuration selected. Its prices start at INR 9.99 lakh*.

The demand for the 2020 Creta 1.4-litre petrol is very low - approximately 5.4%. “About 12% of the 45% petrol is turbo,” Garg said. Targeted at highly performance-focused customers, the 2020 Creta 1.4-litre petrol is priced from INR 16.16 lakh*. Depending on the configuration, it is either only INR 17,000 cheaper than or costs the same as the 2020 Creta 1.5-litre diesel.
