Hyundai Motor India is expected to make some changes to the variant lineup of the Creta mid-size SUV. The carmaker is rumoured to axe the SX Executive variant from its lineup. It could also lose the Mulberry Red exterior colour scheme.
Positioned between the S and SX variants, the Hyundai Creta SX Executive trim was launched in June 2021. It comes with both the 115PS 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine options, priced at Rs 13,99,500 and Rs 15,43,300 (ex-showroom). It only comes with the 6-speed manual gearbox.

This new engine dishes out the maximum output of 160PS and 253Nm, making it 20PS more powerful and 11Nm more torque than the outgoing 1.4-litre motor.
