Hyundai Creta Diesel & Petrol – Drag Race
The YouTuber has found an empty stretch of road to ensure the safety of everyone involved. The diesel is the much powerful of the two but the petrol power output is not too bad either. In the first attempt, the diesel variant trounces the petrol unit convincingly. This was somewhat expected with the initial turbo boost of the diesel model. In the second attempt, however, the result remained the same but the difference between the two SUVs was much more significant. The manual control of the Creta petrol was expected to perform better than what it did. But the sheer gap between the two was surprising to most people standing there.
In the latest-gen model, the Hyundai Creta petrol gets a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol unit that produces 115 PS and 145 Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit that also produces 115 PS and 250 Nm of peak torque. The third and the most exciting engine on offer is the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol T-GDI engine that produces 143 PS and 242 Nm and comes with a 7-speed DCT. The prices of the current-gen model range between Rs 10.23 lakh and Rs 17.94 lakh, ex-showroom.
