While Creta also gets diesel engine option as well as iMT or Intelligent Manual Transmission or clutchless gear stick, Grand Vitara hits back with Suzuki Allgrip select technology which makes it capable off the road as well as a strong hybrid engine option.

While Creta does offer more variants when compared to the Grand Vitara, the Maruti model does have a MT variant with its mild-hybrid engine that boasts of AllGrip Select technology. Available on the Alpha variant, this is priced at 16.89 lakh (ex-showroom).

Maruti ditched diesel several years ago and has a petrol-only product lineup alongwith CNG in select models. The company believes that demand for diesel is declining and that the cost benefits too are increasingly diminishing. Hyundai on the other hand continues to believe that customers must have the ability to choose and the Koreans report that demand for the diesel engines on some of their models is still quite robust.

The other notable players in the segment include Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier, MG Hector, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, Mahindra Scorpio-N and Scorpio Classic.
