Hyundai discreetly discontinues this Creta variant. Details here full detail

Hyundai Motor India has silently discontinued the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol variant of the Creta compact SUV. The specific variant of the SUV is no longer listed on the auto manufacturer’s official website. The automaker has not revealed any reason behind the discontinuation of the variant. However, it could be as the automaker introduced a 1.5-litre petrol engine to the SUV earlier this month. A turbocharged engine means higher pricing for the SUV, which could be another reason behind this discontinuation.

Interestingly, the discontinuation of the specific variant of Creta came right after the South Korean car manufacturer introduced the updated version of the SUV earlier this month, which is available with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options. That being said, there is no turbocharged petrol option available for the Creta SUV for now.
