New 2020 Creta vs Seltos: Which is better?

Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for one of the big battles of 2020: the new Hyundai Creta against the Kia Seltos. The latter is the SUV to beat, while the former is tasked with taking the Creta badge to the top of the mid-size SUV sales charts, as the original model spends most of its time in a close period to 5 years. What makes the competition more interesting is that the second-generation Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos are built on the same platform and share their engines. But there will be differences, some of which are objective and others subjective, which can attract buyers in both cases.

We have listed common factors and points of difference between the two SUVs.

2020 Creta vs Seltos: Interior


Radically as the exterior of Creta 2020, its interior is somewhat traditional. Low Dashboard features an infotainment system with a 10.25-inch touchscreen facing the center console. Creta's driving environment is enhanced by the inclusion of a 7.0-inch digital display that is a feature of Part 1. Leather upholstery has also been used to give the cabin a more luxurious look.

The interior of the Kia Seltos is intelligently designed, with the dash positioned on a 10.25-inch touchscreen higher up, thus in a more convenient position. Seltos may lack Creta DVDs, but the MID is informative and includes a blind spot camera display, a feature missing in Creta.

Both SUV cabins can be trimmed into beige or black upholstery (depending on variant) and we expect Creta to match at least Seltos with excellent cabin quality. Since two SUVs will be built on the same wheelbase, the cockpit room will be almost identical. Both SUVs will come with a two-step backup.

The full feature list has long been Hyundai India's USP in this segment, and the new Creta will be well-equipped as we reported in February in our exclusive Creta detail list and new feature list. However, Kia Seltos is also not slow in this section. In fact, there are some features available on some Seltos versions that won't be offered in Creta, like the top screen, front parking sensors, a 360-degree camera, and a blind spot projector.

On the other hand, the Creta feature list will include a kit not seen in Seltos. In addition to the digital instrument cluster 7.0-inch o, Creta will see major impurities such as a panoramic sunroof, a successful feature in India, and will also become the most affordable car with an electronic parking brake. Automatic transmissions will also be an important feature of Creta for enthusiastic drivers. Both SUVs get eSIM technology connected to connected cars, but Creta BlueLink 1.5 adds more frills like voice-activated controls for sunroof and remote start in manual gearbox versions as well.
