Hyundai is India’s second largest car manufacturer. They showcased the all-new Creta to us back at the Auto Expo earlier this year and later launched it in the market. It is a mid-size SUV that competes with cars like Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Tata Harrier in the segment. Like the older generation Creta, new one also received an overwhelming response from customer and is now a common sight on our roads. It is currently the best selling SUV in its segment and now Hyundai has also introduced the base E trim with a petrol engine too. Earlier, the E trim was only available with a diesel engine. Here we have a walkaround video of what all is offered in the E petrol trim of Hyundai Creta.
The video has been uploaded by Car Duniya on their youtube channel. The video starts by showing the exterior of this new SUV. The front gets a simple looking black grille with silver garnish on the outside. The headlamps are projector and it come with a split boomerang shaped LED light. The silver coloured skid plate is missing in the base variant and the fog lamp is also not available. The turn indicators are placed on the lower part of the bumper as usual.
Coming to the side profile, it gets 16 inch steel rims with thick black cladding around the wheel arches and side. The ORVMs can be adjusted electrically but do not get auto fold option. LED turn indicators are also integrated with the ORVM. The silver lightning arc is there on the C pillar and this E trim does not offer roof rail as well.
At the rear, there is the split tail light with both LED and halogen elements in it. The LED stop lamp on the boot is also available in this variant. Just like at the front, rear bumper also misses out on silver finish to the skid plate. However, it does offer parking sensors and a roof mounted spoiler.
The boot is quite spacious and does not come with a parcel tray. If anyone is interested, then he or she can buy that as an accessory. The spare tyre in the boot is also a 16 inhc full size tyre and not a space saver. On the inside, the E trim gets power window options for all the four doors. There is an analog instrument cluster with an MID display in the centre which can be controlled by the buttons on the steering wheel. The steering wheel itself is a D-cut unit with no leather wrapped around it.
The cabin, door pads are all dual tone which gives it nice touch. The E trim does not even offer a music system but, provision for installing an aftermarket unit is provided. It also misses out on features like a speakers, wireless charging, intergrated air purifier and so on. Although, it is a base variant, Hyundai is offering Creta with safety features like dual airbags, ABS with EBD, front seat belts with pretensioners, seat belt reminder, overspeed alert etc as standard.
Hyundai Creta E trim is available with a 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that generates 115 Ps and 144 Nm of torque. It comes with a 6-speed manual transmission and the engine is BS6 compliant. The price for E petrol trim of Creta is Rs 9.81 lakh, ex-showroom , which makes it the cheapest or most affordable Creta variant.
