South Korean carmaker Hyundai’s compact SUV segment car Creta has the highest sales in the Indian market. Along with this, it is also the company’s most successful car. Recently, Hyundai has updated its car as per the new RDE norms. But the company had to discontinue the most powerful engine in this car due to this. Till now, the option of 1.5-litre petrol, 1.5-litre diesel and 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine was available in this car, but now the company has abolished its turbo petrol engine.

After updating its vehicles as per the new RDE norms, the company has discontinued the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol variant of the Creta. In Creta, this engine produces a maximum power of 138 bhp and a peak torque of 242 Nm. It was the most powerful engine compared to the other two engine options. This engine was offered with a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DCT gearbox.

Hyundai gave a major update to this SUV this month, in which changes were made according to the new real-time driving emission norms to be implemented from April 2023. Now only two engine options remain in this car, which include a 1.5-litre petrol engine with outputs of 113 Bhp and 143.8 Nm and a 1.5-litre diesel engine with 114 Bhp and 250 Nm of torque.

The company has claimed that this SUV’s petrol and diesel engines are as per RDE norms and that E20 fuel can also be used in them. An integrated starter generator system has been given in the new Hyundai Creta.
