Are you interested in the latest Hyundai Creta? Join Juliet McGuire as she reviews the range-topping Creta 1.6D Executive.
Since the Hyundai Creta was introduced to our market in early 2017, it has been a top-seller in its segment (despite its somewhat unusual name). In fact, more than 8 000 Cretas have found homes in South Africa. The demand for compact crossovers is booming at present and to keep the Creta in sync with buyers’ demands, Hyundai recently updated its crossover’s styling with a new grille design, bumpers, roof rails, skid plates and newly-designed tail lights, fog lights and LED daytime running lights.
It’s a good looking vehicle overall and the Creta 1.6D Executive automatic on test here has also been chosen as a semi-finalist in the compact family car category of the 2018/19 iteration of the Cars.co.za Consumer Awards – powered by WesBank.
Power comes courtesy of a 1.6-litre turbodiesel engine with 94 kW and 260 Nm of torque and comes equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Watch the video for more insight!
