Following a price hike in April 2021, the Hyundai Creta received an updated features list last month, which resulted in the base E trim losing quite a bit, while other variants received a handful of new features. Now, Hyundai has introduced a new mid-spec SX Executive trim to the Creta lineup. This new trim is based on the SX trim and sits between the S and SX trims. The Hyundai Creta SX Executive is priced at INR 13.18 lakh for the petrol variant and INR 14.18 lakh for the diesel variant, both prices ex-showroom.
Hyundai Creta SX Executive - Features
To offer the new SX Executive trim at an affordable price point, Hyundai has deleted quite a few features from the SX trim, the most prominent omission being the 10.25-inch touchscreen with Hyundai’s Blue Link connected car features. Instead, the Creta SX Executive gets a smaller 8-inch touchscreen system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Here's a detailed look at all the major feature omissions.
- 10.25-inch infotainment screen
- Blue Link Connected Car Tech
- Chrome Door Handles
- Burglar Alarm
- Arkamys high-end audio system
- Driver Rear View Monitor
- Voice Recognition system
That said, the Creta SX Executive trim still comes very well loaded in terms of features. Here are some of the highlight features of the Creta SX Executive.
- 8-inch touchscreen Infotainment system

Hyundai Creta SX Executive - Powertrain Options
|Engine||1.5L, NA, 4-cylinder petrol engine|
1.5L. 4-cylinder turbo-diesel engine
|Transmission||6-speed manual||6-speed manual|
|Mileage (ARAI Claimed)||16.8 Kmpl||21.4 Kmpl|
The Hyundai Creta SX Executive will be offered with both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engine on offer is the 1.5L unit that produces 115hp and 144Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine is the 1.5L oil burner and produces 115hp and 250Nm of torque. Both engines solely come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox for the SX Executive trim. The Creta SX Executive, however, misses out on any automatic gearbox option and the 1.4L turbo-petrol engine, but that would have also driven up the costs.
