Hyundai Creta Knight Edition in a walkaround video

Hyundai recently launched a new Knight Edition of the Creta for the Indian market. It starts at Rs. 13.35 lakhs ex-showroom and is offered in four variants. Hyundai has only made cosmetic changes to the mid-size SUV. Here, we have a walkaround video of the Creta Knight Edition’s S+ variant.

The video is uploaded on YouTube by Car Duniya. In the video, the host gives us a walkaround of the Creta Knight Edition. The first thing that we can see is the Phantom Black paint scheme. You can get the Knight Edition in other paint schemes as well.

The front grille is now in gloss black and there is a red accent on the grille too. The front skid plate which is usually finished in silver is now blacked-out. The front does look sporty and imposing because the mid-size SUV is finished in black and the red accents really pop out. There are LED headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lamps but they have not been changed. There are halogen foglamps also.

On the sides, there are blacked-out alloy wheels and the brake calipers are finished in red colour. The alloy wheels measure 16-inches and the tyre size is 205/65 R16. Other changes include outside rearview mirrors, roof rails and side sills finished in black. At the rear, there is a Knight Edition emblem and the rear skid plate is also now in black. You do get a rear wiper with a washer and a shark-fin antenna.

Then the host climbs into the interior. The cabin is finished in an all-black theme with red accents. So, the seats and air conditioning vents get red accents. There are rear AC vents, rear curtains, all four power windows, electric adjustment for outside rearview mirrors, integrated headrests, rear parking sensors with camera, automatic climate control, USB charging points, LED reading lamps, panoramic sunroof, cruise control, multi-information display, analogue instrument cluster, keyless entry and push-button to start/stop the engine. There is also a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The price of the Petrol S+ variant is Rs. 13.35 lakhs whereas the Diesel S+ costs Rs. 14.31 lakhs. Then there are the automatic variants. The Petrol IVT SX (O) is priced at Rs. 14.31 lakhs and Diesel AT SX (O) will cost Rs. 18.01 lakhs. All the prices are ex-showroom.

There are no mechanical changes to the engine. So, you get a 1.5-litre, naturally aspirated, four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 115 Ps of max power and 14 Nm of peak torque. There is also a 1.5-litre diesel engine on offer that produces 115 Ps of max power and 250 Nm of peak torque.

As mentioned above, both engines get a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. The petrol engine also gets an IVT automatic transmission whereas the diesel engine gets a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

Hyundai does offer a more powerful 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine that comes with direct injection. It produces 140 PS of max power and 242 Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to only a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. However, this engine is not offered with the Knight Edition.
