Hyundai has unveiled an anniversary edition of its Creta SUV at a function in Bengaluru in the presence of badminton star Saina Nehwal and YK Koo, CEO and MD of Hyundai India. Created to celebrate one year of the Creta’s existence, it gets cosmetic updates on the outside and inside but remains the same mechanically. Prices for this vehicle will be announced on August 1.
The most noticeable cosmetic change to the car is the blacked-out roof and additional stickers on the outside which includes a 1st anniversary decal on the C-pillar. The cabin gets a red trim but remains the same in terms of features. The first unit of the anniversary edition has been handed over to Saina Nehwal for winning the Australian Open, 2016.
It is based on the SX / SX( O) trim of the five-seater SUV and can be had in both the petrol and diesel engine options. In addition, this special trim is also available with both the automatic and manual gearbox options.
Both the petrol and diesel engines are 1.6-litre four-cylinder units and are offered with a six-speed manual or a six-speed AT. The former produces 122bhp/154Nm while the oil burner produces 126bhp/265Nm.
