Hyundai Creta recently added a petrol automatic variant in its line-up after the automaker observed a sizeable demand for the auto gearbox. Hyundai first launched the Creta in 2015 with the 6-speed torque converter offered only with the diesel engine. Now with the addition of the petrol automatic, the Creta SUV offers one of the most comprehensive powertrain options among its peers. Here's what you need to know about the Hyundai Creta petrol automatic:

1. The new petrol automatic trim is offered only on the top-end SX+ variant and costs Rs. 12.86 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

2. The Hyundai Creta's petrol automatic variant receives no exterior changes. While there is no badge to indicate it houses a petrol motor under the hood, it does get an 'Auto' badge at the rear.

3. The new variant's cabin too remains the same. As far as the features list goes, it gets the same provisions and equipment as found on the SX+ variant.

4. The Hyundai Creta petrol SX+ AT gets push-button start, auto climate control, touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, AUX and USB connectivity, diamond cut alloy wheels, projector head-lamps with LED DRLs, 60:40 split rear seat, etc..

5. Its list of provisions for convenience and safety includes two airbags, ABS with EBD, rear camera and parking sensors, follow-me-home head-lamps, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMS, etc..

7. It comes powered by the 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine that develops 122bhp and 154Nm of maximum torque. Read our Hyundai Creta petrol automatic review here.
