MG Astor vs Hyundai Creta

Now, the Hyundai Creta has been the most popular SUV in this segment and has been among the best-selling SUVs in India. Given the fact that the MG Astor is a petrol-only SUV, for this comparison, we are only considering the petrol variants of the Creta, which are priced between ₹ 10.16 lakh to ₹ 17.87 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The base trim of the Astor undercuts the Creta by ₹ 38,000, and offers better features, while the top-end trim is cheaper by ₹ 9,000. Both SUVs come with the option of both a naturally aspirated petrol motor as well as a turbo petrol engine, and both are fully connected SUVs. But the Astor also comes with ADAS with Level 2 autonomous tech, which although is an optional feature for the top-end trim, gives the SUV an upper hand over the Creta.
