Hyundai offered the Russians a cheap Creta with a 2.0 engine


The best-selling Russian crossover has got hold of a new version and has seriously risen in price.

The new Hyundai Creta reached Russian dealerships only at the end of July, so with

As for the cheap 2.0-liter Creta, now a 149-horsepower crossover with an “automatic” can be purchased for 1,435,000 rubles, whereas since July prices started at 1,470,000 rubles.

In this case, the owner will have to be content with a simple air conditioning, 16-inch stamped wheels, halogen headlights and lanterns. For «warm options» (heated windshield, steering wheel, windscreen washer nozzles) you will have to pay 24 thousand rubles, and for LED headlights with static illumination of turns and foglights add another 55 thousand rubles.

As before, the difference between a 123-horsepower 1.6 engine and a 149-horsepower 2.0 engine is 60 thousand rubles.

Neither the controversial appearance nor the rise in price have an effect on the sales of Hyundai Creta: the model remains an absolute Russian bestseller in the crossover class, and in the first nine months of this year, 53.4 thousand «Cret» cars have been found. Note that the second generation Creta is a novelty only for Russians — Hyundai has already shown how it will look
