So Whats the Difference in All New Hyundai Creta 2020 and Kia Seltos

Well - despite all those similarities there are 5 Key Differences

1. Hyundai Creta Offers 5 Key Exclusive USP which what makes highlight for Buyers looking for Top End Sx and Sx Option Models

  • Panoramic Sunroof as against Smaller Electric Sunroof in Seltos - Sx
  • Auto Hold Assist as very useful Safety Feature. If you drive on Hills then Auto Hold Assist will automatically gets activated when you apply brakes to prevent roll down - Sx Model
  • Paddle Shifts for Fun to Drive Experience in Creta Turbo Petrol - Sx Option
  • Remote Engine Start also available in both Creta Manual and Automatic Variants, while this Feature limited in Seltos Automatic Variant only
  • Care for Additional Safety of Side and Curtain Airbags - well Creta 1.5 iVT Automatic Sx Option has these advanced Safety Features, while there is no top of line Variant in Creta Petrol which offers these advanced Safety


2. Kia Seltos Offers 3 Main USP 

  • 360 Degree Camera in GTX Plus Top of Line Variant in Diesel and Turbo Petrol
  • Heads up Display in GTX Plus
  • Rear Disc Brake as a standard Safety from Base HTE Diesel, while Creta Sx and Sx Option Model gets Rear Disc Brake
  • Creta Base E diesel lacks Infotainment System, but Seltos comes with same
  • Seltos HTK Plus Offers Alloy Wheels, While Creta S Variant in competition would be coming with Styled Wheels and trust those Styled Wheels looks Awkward to our view


3. Suspension Dynamics: While Kia Seltos has reasonable good Suspension Dynamics, however if still to categorize Suspension is slight on stiffer side, which aids in superior high speed dynamics but Creta Suspension in comparison would be tuned towards slight soft which will eventually make All New Creta Ride more Plush especially if driven within City Conditions


4. After Sales Service Network, Brand: No Second thoughts - Hyundai as a brand is lot more Renowned and Tested in Indian Market. With Creta already a success and New Creta up for even more Luxurious Features and backed with Hyundai Tag with Superior After Sales Service - Creta 2020 leads a lot


5. Interiors, Exteriors: Well Seltos looks Sporty, while Hyundai Creta 2020 looks more Plush in Cabin Experience. See the Interiors of Creta, Seats with Enhanced Neck Support you will find All New Creta Luxurious in it

However, to disclaim Kia Seltos to our view looks more Stylish and Sporty in Exteriors as against Unconventional Looks of Creta. Especially Creta S Middle Trim with Styled Wheels looks very average and awkward to view.

So Which to Buy - Seltos or All New Creta 2020

To Answer it 

  • Difference is in Way of Suspension, Styling and Features. If you love Relaxed Drive, Comfort Drive on City roads then Creta 2020 may appeal you to be plush, else for Highway High Speed Dynamics - Seltos is a good fit
  • Exterior Styling of Seltos is Hit and Creta Comfort and Seats are more Plush and Upmarket in Top of Line Variant
  • If Seek Kia Seltos - Base HTE Petrol, HTK and HTK Plus would rather be offering more features and Presence against Creta E, Ex and S. Infact Creta Petrol wont be coming in Base E Model, but would be available from Ex
  • However where you seek Fully Loaded with Aspiration and Dream Features in Styling, Safety with Plush Ride Experience - Hyundai Creta leads the pack in Sx and Sx Option
