    Other safety assist technologies available in the Hyundai Creta are the autonomous emergency braking ([AEB> for city, inter-urban, and pedestrian), forward collision warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, auto high beam, and blind spot detection.

    Further, the Hyundai Creta also comes with child presence detection (CPD) and rear cross-traffic collision- avoidance assist (RCCA) for motorcycles as optional fitment.

    “The RCCA is an additional safety technology that Hyundai highlighted in the assessment in which it is able to detect the presence of an approaching vehicle, either from the left or right, while reversing at low speed. The technology will initially provide a warning to alert the driver but it will automatically assist with braking in the event the risk of collision increases,” the ASEAN NCAP shared.

    “Although both the CPD and RCCA are only offered as an optional fitment, their availability in the Creta is critically important as consumers will have the options to choose the variant fitted with both technologies,” it added.

    Powering the Hyundai Creta is a 1.5-liter Smartstream engine mated to either a six-speed slushbox or an intelligent variable transmission.
