Jul 28: Hyundai has added another one automatic variant in the diesel line-up of its Creta compact SUV. Priced at Rs. 13.56 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi), the new variant is based on the S trim of Creta Diesel and so christened as S Diesel AT. So far, the automatic gearbox is available only on the top-end SX variants of Creta.

Though based on the S trim, the new S Diesel AT comes powered by the 1.6-litre CRDi engine of the SX trim levels instead of the 1.4-litre engine powering the S variant. The engine is a four-cylinder unit churning out peak power and torque figures of 128hp and 259.87Nm respectively. Transmission duties are handled by a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The Creta S Diesel AT is offered with all the features of the S MT trim including Dual Airbags, ABS, 7.0-inch touchscreen audio system with six speakers and 1GB HDD. Customers have to wait for a period of two months to get the new S Diesel AT variant of Creta.
