Most Practical And VFM Variant Of New Hyundai Creta
Hyundai Creta comes in E, EX, S, SX and SX(O) trims. The turbo petrol engine is reserved for the last two but petrol and diesel engines come on all trims. The difference between E and EX is not that huge, just the latter getting a touchscreen infotainment and a front USB charger. So, we can confirm that the Creta S trim is the most practical one.

- Driver Rear View Monitor
- Automatic Headlamp
- Projector Headlamps
- Cruise Control

The main features that this S trim misses out is the digital instrument cluster, electric sunroof, drive modes, alloy wheels and the Blue Link internet connectivity. However, it still gets all the features that are the most basic and important for your daily driving needs. Some of the left out features are not even found on the next-in-line SX trim.
Hyundai Creta S Trim Price:
- S Petrol Manual – Rs 11.72 Lakhs
