The Hyundai Creta competes in the mid-size SUV segment in our market and it takes on the likes of the Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, MG Hector, Tata Harrier and Mahindra XUV500.
When compared to its direct rival, the Kia Seltos, the Creta narrowly comes out on top as it has the lower starting price (for both, petrol and diesel versions). However, it is the Kia Seltos that has the more affordable top-spec models.
Although, in this comparison, the Nissan Kicks is the most affordable offering. The Tata Harrier is the most expensive model, though it is one of the largest offerings in the segment and comes with a good number of features.
