17 inch does look really nice though . I am considering the exact same thing and debating the pro's and con's. Nicely laid out comparision. Thanks !

Tentative pricing for the same, sent by Hyundai India to all dealerships, is:

1.6 SX+ AT Diesel = 11.41 lakhs,
1.6 SX Diesel = 9.74 lakhs,
1.6 SX+ Petrol = 9.45 lakhs,
1.6 S Petrol = 8.08 lakhs.

All prices, ex-showroom Kolkata.

Expect marginal pricing differences (5K-10K) across all variants when final prices are disclosed on the day of the launch, but the pricing will be almost on these lines.

Any idea about the Base Models and 1.4L Diesel ?

My Assumption is that the 1.4 Engine would be atleast/about 1 lac cheaper than the 1.6. BHPians, Thoughts?

IF true, I think the SX variant is a very sweet deal. But would kill the i20 Active.

This bit of information comes directly from an official communique sent by Hyundai India to all dealers, nationwide. I went through it personally earlier in the morning.

Sorry, but I can't divulge more nor post a screenshot of the same. Some people might lose their jobs.

The Elantra 6-speed AT is priced at 1.12 - 1.3 lakhs over it's corresponding manual variant. A Creta SX (O) AT diesel at the 12.6 - 12.75 lakhs-mark could have been a sweet deal. Maybe it is in the pipeline, once the car stabilises in monthly sales after it's launch.

A daily running of not less than 40 kms at least, plus retaining the car for 6 years or more, specially if purchased with a loan.

No "leaked" information on that yet, but I would guess that the 1.6 petrol Base might get a starting price of 7.5 lakhs, ex - showroom Delhi. Similarly, the 1.4 diesel Base might start at 8.2 lakhs, ex - showroom Delhi.

The i20 Active would have it's takers. It would still be a full lakh rupees cheaper than the Creta, variant-to-variant.

I'm apprehensive, too, about i20 Active's future. Anyone who goes as far Active would stretch a bit up and reach for Creta. I feel that once Creta kicks in with full force, Active will have fewer takers. It's a half-way house between i20 and Creta.

If these prices are accurate then we have a bunch of people at Renault who want to commit suicide !
The Creta truly stands for what a 2015 car ought to be. The duster has sold in great numbers but i think its days are over (I'm a duster owner btw).

The Duster-Terrano twins sure have a lot to worry about with the advent of the Creta but I don't think after gaining a favorable impression with the masses they (Renault & Nissan) would take this lying down only to waste away all the effort and money they've put in making the Duster a success. They're gonna 1 up Hyundai in the coming months or early next year. It would be interesting to see things unfold.

Cant believe at that pricing . Creta is coming all guns blazing for all the SUV's its seems. Hyundai wants to eat up the Suv market and boy they have a very good product at hand.

This makes the price of Creta below that of Verna.

Verna Prices (in lacks INR ) in comparison:

1.6 S(O) Petrol : 9.35
1.6 SX Petrol : 10.12
1.6 S Diesel : 10.00
1.6 SX Diesel : 11.52
1.6 SX Diesel AT : 12.22

I think there is a very slim chance of Creta pricing like that.

Duster's ride quality is exceptional which I did find out in any car that I test drove (city/ciaz/ecosport/i20/verna/mobilio/ertiga) and the worst being verna (4s). In a road where it feels like riding on a train in duster felt like riding on a horse in verna.
If Hyundai has resolved it in Creta, they clearly have a winner at had.

The Scross stands no competition in terms of a SUV stance with the Creta. Refer to picture of Creta standing next to an i20 on page 9 of this thread (images from Zavegur)

Here is a picture of Scross next to the i20 active courtesy Zig wheels.

Unless it is an introductory offer, it looks too good to be true. Hyundai may eventually price it between the Verna and Elantra depending on the demand. We saw the same with Ecosport who kept increasing the amount throughout the 14 month wait period after their launch.

You have nailed it with the feedback. Ah how I wish there was a Duster 110 AT, maybe one with 4WD

However, truth be told, not many people both about such things as ride quality, "as long as it looks good". Even if Creta rides like a boat on the waves, but is priced well, and comes packed with chrome and features, it will be a hit. And Hyundai knows it ! Haven't they got the formula perfected already?

Those are ex-showroom Delhi prices you have posted. Please refer to my original post where I have given ex-showroom, Kolkata prices.

Also, the Verna SX is the topmost variant in the Verna lineup, and comes with 6 airbags, projectors, leather pack, etc. The Creta has two more variants over it's SX, namely the SX+ and the SX(O). Feature-wise and pricing-wise, if a comparison has to be made, it has to be between Verna S(O) and the Creta SX, the Verna SX to the Creta SX(O), and so on.

But yes, now the 4-speed AT of the Verna will make no sense to buy over the Creta's 6-speed AT. The fact that it comes at a lower variant, comparison-wise, will help the Creta further. If at all a SX(O) AT is introduced in the Creta, I expect it to be priced at least 40,000-50,000 over the Verna SX AT.

Agree wholeheartedly. If the ride is even 80% of a Duster/Terrano, I will pick up the Creta 1.4 S+ (with the optional ABS + dual airbags) as a second chauffeur-driven vehicle plus weekend runabout for family outings. Am sick and tired of scraping my poor Polo's front bumper and underbody on Bangalore's 'roads'.

Renault's response:
Am expecting that Renault will quickly drop their ridiculous current strategy of making customers who want ABS/dual airbags pay a huge premium. If they have any sense, they will add ABS (at least) to all Duster variants plus introduce the facelift. Currently, they add all the 'goodies' to the top 110bhp variants only and are very parsimonious with the 85bhp model.

Nissan's response:
Nissan will have to slash prices on their admittedly more stylish (actually anything is stylish next to the Duster's cheaper variants) but now overpriced Terrano. If one factors in the huge discounts on the Duster, the OTR for a similar Terrano (with airbag(s) though is around 1.5 lakhs higher! Mind you, with the issues that Nissan is facing on their LCV JV, they must seize the opportunity to keep at least the Terrano alive and on the 'mind-map' of buyers.
