    Hyundai Creta vs Hyundai i20 Active

    The Hyundai Creta and i20 Active might appear to be very different products, but they do have their fair share of similarities. Both are based on the same platform i.e. the Elite i20‘s. Both are essentially crossovers which are more suited to the urban environment than off then the road. While the Hyundai Creta will compete with the Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport and the i20 Active competes with the Volkswagen Cross Polo, Fiat Avventura and Toyota Etios Cross, the two crossovers could end up competing with each other as well. In this Hyundai Creta vs Hyundai i20 Active comparison here we will try to analyze whether spending a lakh or two extra on the Creta over the i20 Active makes sense or not. Especially for buyers looking for a budget crossover.

    The Hyundai i20 Active is based on the current generation i20 hatchback and gets certain SUV-like elements such as the black cladding, faux skid plates, increased ground clearance, roof rails, etc. But that does not make it an SUV and it still remains more of a beefed up hatchback. It doesn’t have the road presence of an SUV either. The Hyundai Creta has been designed to look like an SUV from the ground up and has the upper hand in terms of SUV-like design and presence. It looks more aggressive and can tackle off-road conditions slightly better.

    Much like the exteriors, the interiors of the Hyundai i20 Active have been lifted off the Elite i20 albeit with a different colour scheme. The Hyundai Creta’s dashboard appears slightly more premium and better designed. But then again, looks are a matter of personal taste and it ultimately comes down to the buyers preferences.

    [box type=”success” ]Both cars from Hyundai are attractive packages, but the Creta looks more of an SUV than the i20 Active.[/box]


    The Hyundai Creta and the Hyundai i20 Active are both feature packed crossovers, typical of Hyundai cars these days. Projector headlamp units, LED daytime running lights, reversing camera, alloys, automatic climate control etc. Perhaps the only additional feature on the Creta is the touchscreen infotainment system with GPS navigation which is not available on the i20 Active.

    Mileage 15.29 kpl 19.67 kpl/17.01 kpl 21.38 kpl 17.19 kpl 21.19 kpl

    The Hyundai Creta offers more engine and transmission options, but they come at a price. The ace up the Creta’s sleeve is the 6-speed automatic diesel. However, under general urban conditions the i20 Active’s engines offer sufficient punch and good fuel efficiency as well.

    all prices ex-showroom, Delhi

    As we mentioned earlier, the Hyundai Creta vs Hyundai i20 Active comparison has been carried out to see if it spending a couple of lakhs on the Creta over the i20 Active is justified or not. For the price of the top end version of the i20 Active, you will just about get the base petrol of the Creta. This is why the i20 makes a compelling case for itself. It gives crossover like benefits for the price of a hatchback. But then for the extra money the Creta offers more space, premium-ness and more of an SUV appeal.

    i20 Active

    [box type=”success” ]The Hyundai Creta is slightly on the expensive side. The Hyundai i20 Active is better value for money.[/box]


    On paper, both crossovers are among the best in their respective segments. However, when compared with each other giving an outright verdict is not easy. The Hyundai i20 Active might be much cheaper than the Hyundai Creta, but then the latter offers a lot more in terms of appearance, space, interiors, engines, transmissions, etc.

    [box type=”success” ]If you are looking for a crossover and budget is not an issue then the Creta is will undoubtedly be our pick. But if there are budget constraints then it makes more sense to go for the Hyundai i20 Active in the fully loaded diesel guise.[/box]

    New Hyundai Creta 2018 Price, Launch, Specifications, Interior

    South Korean automaker, Hyundai has launched the new Elite i20 facelift at the recently concluded Delhi Auto Expo 2018. It was speculated that the company will unveil the updated Creta at the biennial event; that didn’t happen. The company has already started testing the new Hyundai Creta 2018 facelift in India, which suggests that the launch could take place in the near future. It is expected that the vehicle could go on sale in the country in the second half of this year, before Diwali. This compact SUV is a crucial product for the company and it accounts for a huge chunk of Hyundai’s monthly sales. In a bid to keep the demand intact amid intense competition, the Korean giant plans on bestowing intermittent updates on the SUV.

    Besides Creta facelift, Hyundai will introduce the updated versions of the i20 Active.  The facelifted Creta will act as a buffer until the new generation model is rolled-out in 2021. The Hyundai Creta 2018 facelift will have cosmetic design upgrades and a re-tuned engine line-up. The model will receive subtle styling updates, visible largely on the front profile. Expect some changes and feature upgrades inside the cabin as well. It was speculated that the Creta facelift could also get mild hybrid technology. With the recent withdrawal of the subsidy and increased tax on mild hybrids, Hyundai has dropped plans of launching hybrid cars in the country. Check Out – Upcoming Hyundai Cars At 2018 Auto Expo
