Hyundai Creta is slated for a Facelift soon

The turbo petrol engine on the Creta was available with the S+ and the SX(O) variants mated to a dual-clutch automatic transmission. This catered to a more performance-centric buyer segment. The turbo petrol delivered 140 PS power with a peak torque of 242 Nm and did not power any other car in its lineup. This makes sense as modifying the engine to follow emission norms for a single product would not have been a resourceful decision.
