Hyundai Creta N Line prices begin from Rs 16.82 lakh  | Autocar Professional


Less than 2 months after 2024 Hyundai Creta facelift prices were announced, the Korean company has brought in the sportier N Line trims at Rs 16.82 lakh-20.30 lakh. Creta N Line prices are quite close to our estimate. This marks the introduction of Hyundai’s third N Line model, and the second major expansion of the Creta line-up, after the launch of the Creta-based three-row SUV, the AlcazarBookings had opened for Rs 25,000 on February 29 and Hyundai has already received over 80,000 orders. The Creta N Line is available in two trims – N8 and N10.

 

2024 Hyundai Creta N Line: prices, rivals

When compared to the top-spec Creta SX(O) with the 160hp, 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine – it’s only available with a 7-speed dual-clutch auto and is priced at Rs 20 lakh – the equivalent N Line version, the N10, is priced Rs 30,000 higher. Meanwhile, the Creta N Line N8 costs Rs 19.34 lakh. 

However, buyers can also choose to have the Creta N Line with a 6-speed manual gearbox, priced between Rs 16.82 lakh to 18.32 lakh. Hyundai claims that the automatic version does the 0-100kph sprint in 8.9 seconds. Both come with three drive modes – Eco, Normal and Sport – and three ‘Traction’ modes – Snow, Sand and Mud. Hyundai claims the dual-clutch version delivers 18.4kpl, while the manual is rated at 18kpl.

Considering this price point, the Creta N Line is priced lower than special range-topping versions of rivals like the Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo 1.5 TSI (Rs 19.09-20.49 lakh), Volkswagen Taigun GT Plus and GT Edge (Rs 18.18-20 lakh) and the Kia Seltos X-Line (Rs 19.60-20.30 lakh).
