Comparison Review: Maruti Suzuki S-Cross vs. Hyundai Creta

Overall Information

As a pair of main competitors, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross and Hyundai Creta have a lot in common, but more in difference. So we will mainly focus on the Ride Quality, On-Road Price, Safety, Exterior, Interior, mileage, dimensions, ground clearance, colours, and specifications & features to make a comparison between these two vehicles.

 

Ride Quality

  • Maruti Suzuki S-Cross

With a 1.3-litre, 4-cylinder Multijet motor, you would not ask for more for its power since the Maruti Suzuki S Cross can produce a maximum power of 89bhp and a max torque of 200Nm. It has a flat ride quality thanks to the strong suspension when at high speed. The steering isn’t quick but it is quite progressive and has instinct feedbacks that can help you place the car precisely where you want to go.

  • 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.

 

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

  • Maruti Suzuki S-Cross on-road price:

Maruti Suzuki S Cross has launched a price range from ₹ 8.81 Lakhs to ₹ 11.44 Lakhs. The S Cross is only available in 4 variants. And all of the variants are equipped with manual gearbox and diesel engine.

  • 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.

From the price positioning, we can see that the Hyundai Creta is a segment above. Its starting price is even slightly higher than the peak price of Maruti Suzuki S Cross. And there are much more variant options for Hyundai Creta too.

 

Safety

  • Maruti Suzuki S-Cross:

With only 2 Airbags (Driver & Co-Driver), Seat Belt Warning, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Engine immobilizer, Remote Central Locking, Speed Sensing Door Lock, and Child Safety Lock, the Maruti Suzuki S Cross surprisingly scored 5-stars in the safety test launched by ASEANNACP.

  • Hyundai Creta:

The Hyundai Creta is quite well loaded in the safety features: 6 Airbags, Seat Belt Warning, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Hill Hold Control, Engine immobilizer, Remote Central Locking, Speed Sensing Door Lock, and Child Safety Lock. Besides, the Hyundai Creta got a 4-stars rating in the latest safety test, which was launched by the Latin NCAP. For more detailed safety information, click here.

From the test results, we can learn that the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is slightly safer than the Hyundai Creta. But both these two cars are safety-reliable enough to protect the occupants.

 

Exterior

  • Maruti Suzuki S-Cross exterior:

The exterior of Maruti Suzuki S-Cross looks like a “big hatchback” rather than an SUV/crossover, which is one of its largest disadvantages. And that’s also why people would turn to Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Creta, or Renault Duster when they want to buy an SUV. The S-Cross got a big chrome front grille and an aggressive lower bumper. Both the front and rear lamps are revised.

  • 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.

 

Interior

  • Maruti Suzuki S-Cross interior:

The S-Cross has a classic Maruti Suzuki style black interior, which is good for it is a well-finished cabin and it shows a sense of elegance. You can have plenty of storage spaces: the lower centre console, the drivers’ armrests, and the front door pads. The overall fit and finish are good and there are some highlights, such as the variation of plastic grain and the hard plastic sections on the dashboard.

  • 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.

 We can learn from the statistics that the Hyundai Creta is much more powerful than the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross except for the basic version.

 

Verdict:

In conclusion, both the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross and the Hyundai Creta are good vehicles. But considering the value for money, for those who hold the budget around ₹ 10 Lakhs, I would recommend you to add more money to go for the Hyundai Creta because the Creta is a segment above. But if you hold the budget under ₹ 10 Lakhs, the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is a better option for the budget and the value for money.
