The Creta that we tested was equipped with the 1.5-litre, four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine producing 115hp and 144Nm torque, mated to a CVT auto gearbox. The Hyundai SUV has an ARAI-certified fuel efficiency figure of 17.7kpl for this very powertrain, and 17.4kpl for the 1.5-litre NA petrol engine with the manual transmission.

The Honda Elevate is offered with a sole 1.5-litre, four-cylinder NA petrol engine making 121hp and 145Nm.
