So, we will launch a comparison between them based on Ride Quality, On-Road Price, Exterior, Interior, Safety, Mileage, Dimensions, Colours, Ground Clearance, New Car Launch, and Specifications & Features.

 

Ride Quality

  • Hyundai Creta

Driving the Hyundai Creta is one of the most silent and luxury experiences in its segment. The suspension loaded on board is also good and the NVH levels are great, you can hardly find any noises in the cabin.

  • Ford EcoSport

Ford EcoSport is a tough vehicle that you would love driving. Under the hood is 1.5-litre petrol or diesel engine. In the petrol variants, you can choose either a 5/6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission. So, it means that you can enjoy a vehicle that provides you with a stable high-speed performance and quick accelerator feedback.

 

On-Road price in New Delhi (some cities prices are lower than this)

  • Hyundai Creta on-road price:

The Hyundai Creta starts its price at ₹ 11.4 Lakhs with a peak price of ₹ 18.73 Lakhs. And there are 22 available variants, among which 19 are equipped with manual transmission and 3 are automatic.

  • Ford EcoSport on-road price:

It is obvious that the Hyundai Creta is much more expensive than the Ford EcoSport. The starting price of Creta is already the peak price of EcoSport. We can learn that the Creta could be a segment above than the EcoSport just from the price positioning. But let’s keep reading and dig out more differences.

Exterior

  • Hyundai Creta exterior:

The Hyundai Creta is quite outstanding; it has the look that you would spot out immediately from the crowd. The sharp headlamp with DRL and the fresh-look front grille make the Creta more sporty appeal.

  • Ford EcoSport exterior:

The new EcoSport has refreshed its automatic HID headlamps and DRLs. The front grille in black also looks premium. Besides, EcoSport also has some highlights such as the extraordinary black disposal to the fog lamp bezel.

But in general, these two vehicles do not show many differences in the exterior, some consumers may easily get confused in distinguishing these two cars by their exterior.

 

Interior

  • Hyundai Creta interior:

The Hyundai Creta has recently received some upgrades, such as the contrasting metallic finish on the air-conditioner vents, which makes the already comfortable cabin more comfortable.

  • Ford EcoSport interior:

All of the Ford EcoSport variants get a touchscreen-based infotainment system with an embedded navigation system, which is very handy for your driving, except for the basic version. However, one of the disadvantages is its narrow cabin, which lacks enough shoulder room on the rear seat. Moreover, the cabin plastics are inconsistent and the instrument console is a little bit out of date.

 

Petrol & diesel mileage

  • Hyundai Creta petrol & diesel mileage:

The official claimed petrol mileage of Hyundai Creta is 15.29 kmpl, and the mileage of diesel variants is from 17.01 to 21.38 kmpl.

  • Ford EcoSport petrol & diesel mileage:

According to the official claimed statistics, the petrol versions of EcoSport have the mileage around 14.7 to 15.9kmpl. And the diesel versions have the mileage of 21.7kmpl.

In this round, these two vehicles are well-matched and it’s hard to say which one is better. Both of them have a good mileage performance based on the official statistics.
