Hyundai Creta used to be the most-selling SUV in India. It is still amongst the high-selling C-segment SUVs in India. This car has always been in the limelight ever-since its launch. However, there are a variety of options available in the market today that buyers can consider. If you belong to the category of buyers who want something other than the Creta, then you can consider the cars mentioned here. Let’s go.
The Tata Nexon comes from one segment below the Creta. This SUV gets all the necessary features that make it a good value for money prospect. If you are considering the 1.5-litre petrol engine of the Creta, the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol unit of the Nexon will also make sense. Creta’s 1.5-litre unit makes 113bhp & 144Nm of torque whereas the Nexon’s 1.2-litre turbo-petrol unit makes 118bhp & 170Nm of torque.
Moreover, the Nexon is one of the safest cars in India. You can save a lot of money buying a Nexon instead of Creta and that too without compromising drastically on features. The top-end of the Nexon will cost you around Rs 16.58 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai).
Cars other than Creta – Mahindra XUV700
The XUV700 is the hottest mid-size SUV available in the market today. It is the most feature-loaded car in the segment. It gets premium features like electrically adjustable seat with memory function (driver’s side), level-two ADAS, Autobooster headlamps, AdrenoX AI and the biggest panoramic sunroof in its segment. Also, it is one of the top-rated safe cars in India today. The only major downside of the XUV700 is its very long waiting period. You can own the top model of the XUV700 at Rs 29 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai). Moreover, five-seater’s top variant, the AX5 comes in at Rs 22.20 lakh (on-road, Mumbai).
Skoda Slavia is the recently launched mid-sized sedan in India. It is a powerful and feature-rich car. Slavia gets features like connected car technology, an electric sunroof, an all-digital instrument console, a two-spoke steering wheel, ambient lighting, cruise control, and AC vents for the rear seats. It comes powered by a 1.0-litre TSI and a 1.5-litre TSI turbo-petrol engines. The Skoda Slavia’s top-end is priced under Rs 20.89 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai).
Cars other than Creta – MG Astor
MG Astor is a C-segment SUV that rivals the Hyundai Creta. It is the most feature-rich car in that segment. It gets features like a panoramic sunroof, an AI assistant, Level 2 ADAS technology, a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a fully-digital instrument cluster, an electronic parking brake, a 360-degree camera, and many more. The top-end Astor costs around Rs 20.91 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai).
Mahindra Thar is from a completely different league. It is the only 4×4 proper off-roader on this list. The Thar is a take-it-anywhere-and-everywhere machine. However, there is a big compromise in its second-row space. Only kids can be seated here. The top-end Thar comes in at Rs 18.87 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai).
