Hyundai Creta is one name that has transformed the dynamics and perception of the compact SUV segment among Indian buyers. The Creta is an ideal equilibrium that offers a practical, spacious and feature-rich cabin, upmarket and suave exterior looks and punchy engine options. The coming together of these distinct attribute provide it with a more upmarket appeal over competitor SUVs. The Korean SUV was the first-ever compact SUV to come with the option of 17-inch tyres, a suite that other similarly-sized SUVs began to follow.
Here, we will be discussing ground clearance, dimensions, tyre sizes and other details of the Hyundai Creta:
What is the ground clearance of the Hyundai Creta?
Hyundai Creta has a ground clearance of 190mm. While it is not as high as one would expect for a traditional SUV, it is much higher than that of a hatchback and sedan offered in the Indian car market.
What is the boot space size of the Hyundai Creta? Is it bigger than its rivals?
The Creta has the biggest boot compartment in its segment of premium compact SUVs. The SUV claims a boot space of 433 litres, which currently is the best in its category and is good enough to accommodate 3-4 full-sized suitcases.
How much is the wheelbase of Hyundai Creta?
The second-generation Hyundai Creta has a wheelbase of 2,610mm. Before the advent of Volkswagen Taigun and Skoda Kushaq, this wheelbase was the longest in its segment. While it is not the benchmark anymore, this wheelbase is good enough to offer a generous amount of knee room and legroom for the rear seat occupants.
What are the dimensions of the Hyundai Creta?
The Hyundai Creta has a length of 4,300mm, a width of 1,790mm and a height of 1,635mm. The newer SUVs which arrived after the Creta have surpassed these figures, though the Creta still manages to look fairly large and commands a strong road presence.
