Hyundai Indonesia is allegedly preparing a new SUV candidate whose price tag is tight with the Toyota Rush, Daihatsu Rush, and even the Honda HR-V 1.5. What are the specifications like?
The Hyundai car that was found to be road testing in the country is the Creta. A 5-seater SUV already on sale in India.
This can be seen from a video clip of a Pasangmata.com user showing an SUV-style car with a camouflage cover in the middle of a road test on the Purbaleunyi Toll Road in the direction of Bandung – Jakarta. The car was allegedly Hyundai Creta.
Why Hyundai Creta? Although the car is already covered with a shroud, there are several points that imply that the car is a compact SUV that is a challenger to the Honda HR-V.

First from the wheels, using a two tone color that is shaped like the letter Y. The design is similar to that used on the Hyundai Creta in India.
Continuing to the front area, although it is covered by a shroud, you can still see the LED DRL which is separate from the main lights. This lamp model resembles the Hyundai Kona, the same as the second-generation Creta sold in India in 2020.
In the specifications of the Hyundai Creta, there are two engine options, namely gasoline and diesel. The two machines have different performances, but looking at the engine capacity they can deal with the Daihatsu Terios, Toyota Rush, to the Honda HR-V 1.5.
On the gasoline engine, the Hyundai Creta is equipped with a 1,497 cc engine capacity that can spit out 84.4 kW (115 PS) at 6,300 rpm. While the maximum torque is 143.8 Nm at 4,500 rpm. This power is mated to a choice of manual and automatic intelligent variable transmission (IVT) transmissions.
The Hyundai Creta is also loaded with a 1,493 cc Common Rail Direct Injection diesel engine that can spit out 115 PS of power at 4,000 rpm and 25.5 Nm of torque at 1,500 – 2,750 rpm. Power is channeled through a 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed automatic.
Oh yes, the Hyundai Creta also has a 1,353 cc turbo engine that puts out more power, which is 140 PS at 6,000 rpm. While the torque is 24.7 Nm at 1,500 – 3,200 rpm. This performance is mated to a 7-speed DCT transmission system.
In terms of dimensions, the Hyundai Creta is more compact than the Terrios-Rush, and the Honda HR-V. The 5-seater car measures 4,300 mm in length, 1,790 mm in width, 1635 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,610 mm.
The HR-V has dimensions similar to the Creta, only the HR-V has a longer size. On paper, the HR-V measures 4,294 mm in length, 1,772 mm in width, 1,580 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,610 mm.

Talking about the price, the Hyundai Creta starts on sale from 10.15 lakh or around Rp. 196 million (ex showroom aka not including taxes), and the highest type is 17.78 lakh, which is around Rp. 344 million. If sold at this price, would it be suitable for the Indonesian market?
