Dear all, pls note, there will be an upgrade of VTVT E+ and Crdi E+ variant to *Ex* which will be lower than VTVT SX / Crdi S. Kindly do not take E+ variants bookings as there will be an upgrade from April. We have more than sufficient bookings of E+ than the stock available to be cater to the bookings. Some customers may have to be upgraded to EX variant. Circular to follow soon. *Kindly note in this is trim restructuring and not discontinuance of a variant*. Lowest variant will be *Ex* only.
The above post is from the Hyundai Creta owners group on Facebook. Looks like Petrol E+ and diesel 1.4 E+ variants are replaced by new EX variant. If they price 1.4 EX diesel above current price of 9.99L in Karnataka, it will lose the road tax benefit. The 10L+ ex-showroom vehicle will fall in to 18.8% road tax bracket instead of 15%.

Hyundai is expected to update the Creta variant line-up for the Indian market in the coming days. The company will add a new Creta EX variant to its line-up to replace the E+ trim.

The new Creta EX will come with features like front fog lights with daytime running lamps, a rear-seat armrest with a cup holder, adjustable headrests for the rear seats and a reverse-parking camera. While these features will be common to both Creta EX petrol and diesel versions, Hyundai will offer more equipment on the Creta EX diesel, comprising a 5.0-inch touchscreen audio system, steering-mounted audio controls, a map light with a sunglasses holder, two tweeters and a front-USB charging socket. The Creta EX trim will not come with a front power outlet which was earlier available on the E+ trim.

So it seems that the E+ will still continue to exist but as a very basic barebones variant in the Creta lineup. You will be able to adjust the outside mirrors electrically but you will have to open the car manually.

The previous petrol E+ and the diesel E+ were quite different in terms of the features offered in them, in the new E+(and the EX) the only difference between them is of a front power outlet? Why is my question? Why does a power outlet needs to be the differentiating factor between the petrol and the diesel?

If EX stays below 10L ex showroom, it will be a good VFM proposition.

While good pricing can definitely push sales of this unit, this particular version will definitely be the butt of all jokes with that variant and car name combination. They should avoid putting ex and creta together.

So is there any news on when the new creta(2020) will be launched? Will it be a global lanch or be launched in specific countries only.

Please update if anyone has the information. As in if its adviseable to wait for the update or book immediately.

Had a quick question: How to get traffic on the navigation map. Or no such option?

If you are talking about the in-built navigation, then I don't think that has traffic updates. But, you could get GMaps in your head unit using Android Auto/Apple CarPlay.

Not at all in my view. E+ name has been retained with equipment level downgraded to old E variant. It has been done just to retain E+ variant price as it is and price EX higher probably around 11 lakhs. My hunch.

I've recently booked a Dual Tone Creta as I wanted a slightly bigger and powerful car than my Elite i20. But I am so much used to the tilt and reach adjustments of the i20 that I am a bit worried now.
Another question I have is regarding the braking power, as some reviews are negative about the bite of the brakes on Creta. I've test driven the car before booking and I kinda didn't feel the issue much (and in fact didn't even find the power to be overwhelmingly different than i20 as I was expecting. It surely was powerful but didn't feel a huge difference. May be some issue with the test drive car itself?). Any feedback on this? I am more of a sedate kind of driver.

I own a 2018 Creta, and my wife drives a 2018 i20. On both cars, Braking lacks that sharpness. So the brake pedal travel is always a bit more when compared to other cars. But nothing to be concerned about. I used to drive a Rapid with sharp braking and I have got used to the Creta now.
And if you are a sedate driver, then there should not be any issue at all.

Hi, Need help. In Creta SX Automatic 2019 variant I am getting speed alert while crossing 80 kmph speed. Any way we can switch it off? Or change the limit to say 100 kmph?

Thanks for the input. I've got the delivery of the car last Monday and getting used to it. Haven't yet taken her for a long drive but till now seems like a very comfortable City ride. Bit of an issue with Parking as I am in a Hilly City where parking is bit of an issue.

One small niggle with the car though, there is some kind of rattling sound from the rear, mostly seems to be from the bumper. Planning to take it to the workshop to get it rectified soon. With the i20 though, I have never faced any kind of rattling at all, the build was pretty solid.

Missing the Telescopic steering a bit but not as much as I though I would, the seating position is very comfortable for my height (5ft9in).
What I liked is the extra power of this 1.6 ltr engine than the i20. In many uphill places the i20 used to struggle but the Creta engine can easily pull car in those places. Will have to wait to see the highway performance, which also should be better I guess.



And the seats are very comfortable too, the black and orange themed seats looks pretty nice too. I guess it won't need any leather seat covers as of now.



I still haven't installed my own music system yet, the current one is decent but lacks the punch that I want. Would probably get the amp and speakers installed soon.


About the Projector headlights, is it possible to upgrade the lights? Can Xenon lights be used to replace the current bulbs?
Regards,

Any news about the updated Creta versions pricing or by when the pricing is expected to be out. If the update is entirely due to impending positioning of 'Venue', it should be bad news for consumers. Correct me if wrong.

Hyundai Creta EX priced from Rs 10.84 lakh

Along with adding the EX variant to the Creta line-up, @HyundaiIndia has discontinued the S 1.6 automatic variant, which means the diesel-auto combo is now available only on the top-spec SX trim:
