As a new entry on our finalist list, the Creta has a lot going for it, which undoubtedly makes it an honest choice if you’re in the market for a mid-size family crossover. Not only was it the most spacious out of our finalists, but it also offers high levels of comfort, good ride quality and loads of creature comforts, however the Mazda CX3 still trumps it. The 1.6-litre only delivers average performance, while economy is also not as frugal as some of the Creta’s main rivals. Still a very solid vehicle to consider in this sector of the market.
