Hyundai Venue Vs Hyundai Creta Comparison – Price, Features, Specifications

The Hyundai Creta and the Hyundai Venue are two of the most familiar names in the Indian automotive space that not only offer a feature-rich package for the buyers, but also dominate the respective segments with their performance, practicality, and looks. While the Creta takes on rivals like the Kia Seltos, the Venue is the main rival to compact SUVs like the Kia Sonet and the Tata Nexon.

But, how good are these SUVs when pitted against each other? Here is our detailed Hyundai Venue Vs Hyundai Creta comparison.

Hyundai Venue Vs Hyundai Creta – Engine, Gearbox, and Performance

Both the Venue and the Creta are offered with petrol as well as diesel engine options which can be mated to either manual or automatic gearbox options. While a detailed comparison and more details related to the power output figures are mentioned in the table below, it is worth noting the fact that all these engines boast impressive refinement levels and have a proven track record in terms of long-term reliability. The diesel variants of the two SUVs also get the same 1.5L U2 CRDi engine and deliver impressive mileage.

1.5 l MPi Petrol Engine of Creta

While picking a clear winner here is extremely difficult, it is the Creta which delivers a better driving experience as it not only gets a more powerful petrol motor, but is also equipped with a well-tuned suspension setup and a better steering unit. Despite its larger footprint and heavier kerb weight, the Creta delivers better dynamics and maintains composure at triple-digit speeds.
