Hyundai Creta N Line Launched | Prices Start From Rs 16.82 Lakhs

The craze for enthusiast cars in India has been gaining popularity in recent times. It's a fact that people crave sportiness and uniqueness to make themselves feel different and, so to say - happy for what they drive. Hyundai has been teasing the Creta N Line on the internet for a while, and now all the details are finally out. The Hyundai Creta N Line is offered in two variants, each with two different powertrain options to choose from. The prices start from Rs 16.82 lakhs for the N8 variant with manual transmission and go up to Rs 20.30 lakhs for the top-end N10 trim with DCT option. 

What's Different In Creta N Line?

The Hyundai Creta N line gets a redesigned front and rear bumper. The Hyundai logo is now repositioned lower down in the front grille. The front bumper and overall silhouette make the Creta N Line quite sporty. Adding more to the sportiness are the side skirts, beautiful looking bigger 18-inch alloy wheels with low profile tyres and the red callipers. At the back, the Creta N Line gets dual exhaust tips with a flavoured tune, N badges, and a prominent rear spoiler.

The Creta N Line has an all-black interior layout. The N-badges and red accents add uniqueness. The steering wheel is a three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel with the N emblem at the bottom. The leather upholstery seats will get additional back and side bolsters with red switches and metal finish petals. 

In terms of powertrain, the Creta N Line gets a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine that churns out 160hp of peak power and 253Nm of peak torque, which can be had in either 6-speed manual or 7-speed DCT. In a DCT trim, Hyundai claims the 0-100kph sprint in 8.9 seconds.Nothing much has changed on the mechanical side, but the suspension setup has been retuned , while the steering dynamics have been weighted.

How Does It Stack Up Against Its Competition?

The Creta N Line truly sets itself apart in terms of its distinctive design and style, making it a standout choice for those seeking a truly unique and eye-catching vehicle. However, in terms of performance, it competes with German enthu-rockets, which produce 150 hp of power and 250Nm of torque. In terms of pricing, the Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo (Rs 19.09 lakh-20.49 lakh) version is more expensive than the Creta N Line, whereas the Volkswagen Taigun (Rs 18.18 lakh-20 lakh) GT Plus and GT Edge are relatively cheaper than the Creta N Line. When it comes to going up with its sister cousin, Kia Setos (Rs 19.60 lakh-20.30 lakh), the Hyundai Creta N Line base variant is cheaper, whereas the top-variant is at the exact cost as that of N Line.
