The Hyundai Creta is the company's offering in the lucrative compact-SUV / crossover market in India. Featuring the company's Fluidic Sclupture 2.0 design philosophy, the Creta has been designed keeping the youth in mind. It features class-leading equipment, powerful but frugal engines and as with any Hyundai vehicle it has been priced very aggressively.
The Creta is Hyundai's ticket into the compact SUV market in India. It is not a sub 4-m SUV like the Ford EcoSport but a proper one like the Renault Duster / Nissan Terrano. It is called the ix25 in markets like China but will be sold as the Creta (including imports from India) elsewhere. It looks like a most modern Hyundai with that famous fluidic design philosophy and over chromed grille. The big headlamps with daytime running lights, lovely diamond cut alloy wheels (on top end), roof rails, raised shoulder line and uncluttered rear end make the Creta one of the best looking SUVs under the Rs 20 lac mark in India.
On the inside Hyundai has left no stone unturned to make sure prospective customers are tempted enough to put down their money for this one. The dual tone cabin looks nice and gives you a sense of premiumness - this is also evident from the layout and long list of standard features. Front seats are very comfortable - you also get a front arm-rest along with lot of places to keep knick-knacks. Space in the 2nd row is generous for this segment and you get rear a/c vents unlike in the case of the Duster. Visibility is good for rear passengers and finally, there is ample boot space for weekend drives.
The Creta comes with a choice of 3 engine options : two diesel (1.4 and 1.6) and one petrol. The 1.6 diesel also comes with an optional 6-speed automatic and this is clearly one of the USPs of the SUV. Like most Hyundai cars, the Creta also offers an easy and fuss free drive. It feels like a much smaller car on the move and this is a boon for city usage. At the same time, there is more tha ample ground clearance on offer for all kind of roads.
Priced from Rs 8.6 lac onwards, the Creta offers tremendous value for money
The power out of all three engines are exactly the same as the engines of new 4S Fluidic Verna. The 1.6 litre petrol has an output of 123 PS with 155Nm of torque, the diesel 1.6-litre delivers 128 PS and 260 Nm of torque, the 1.4-litre diesel churns a maximum of 90 PS with 220 Nm of torque. Hyundai will offer Creta petrol with 6-speed manual, while the diesel 1.6-litre engine will be offered with 6-speed manual or optional automatic gearbox. The 1.4-litre diesel engine will get a 5-speed transmission. The diesel automatic returns a phenomenal fuel efficiency of 21.1 km/l. No details were given about the other variants.The diesel manual takes just 12.3 second from zero to 100 km/h. The car is quick and is fun to drive. The diesel automatic did the same run in 13.2 seconds.
There is no doubt that the diesel engine very peppy and builds up speed with more urgency than the others in the segment.

The Creta is very light in weight, thanks to its hive structure that makes the car lighter and increases the stiffness at the same time. The driving posture is very nice. Even though the suspensions are on a softer side – just like any other Hyundai vehicle, the Creta has handles better because of its stiff body. Overall road manners and impeccable.

The Creta looks awesome.It looks like bigger car Santa Fe and offers so many features. I loved the car first time I saw it. The performance of the diesel engine is phenomenal. It has very nice insulation and the noise does not filters inside the car. The car comes with so many features and lot of space inside for whole family to sit. I would recommend this car to anyone who is looking for a new car.

Dear Elroy Team, I will be the first Customer for CRETA who is sharing Bad Experience with Elroy Motors. I took delivery of the Car on 9th August 2015 from Elroy Motors, New Delhi. Following are the Concerns- 1.Feedback Form was given to be at the time of signing of documents and not after Delivery of Product. 2.Demo given by Sales Person was not upto the mark as he was not aware about most of the features in the Product. 3.You have charges Rs.8,923- towards Teflon Coating on the Product. However no such Coating was ever done on the Product and no intimation about the same was given to me. Even the documents handed over to me are silent about such charges. 4.Product given was not properly cleaned and dust was easily visible. After complaining also no cleaning was done by person standing there at the time of Delivery. 5.No Polythene Packing of Seat Cover was given and it was already removed without consent of the Owner. 6.Company charged Rs.17 Lacs but failed to give even basic Carpet on the Floor apart from Foot Mats (Which all Dealers charge separately). 7.Major Features are missing in the Product in this Technological World i.e. Connectivity with Mobile Application so that App can update that Product is working fine. This basic feature is available in other Competitor products at lesser price. 8.No feature like Average Fuel Consumption, Distance to Empty, Rain Sensing Wipers etc. 9.In most of the Auto Websites, it is shown that SX(O) have Tilt & Telescopic Steering but Telescopic is missing. 10.Basic Bluetooth wherein Phone is unable to Download Address Book except Connectivity. I am not happy with the Product as compare to the Cost.

Cons ,nothing as such
We bought this car soon after the launch of the Hyundai Creta, in blue color. It comes with all the features which we needed and most importantly it comes with an automatic trans,mission which helps me go swiftly in heavy traffic jams . I loved every bit of it.

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,Interior is completely black on door trims
Cons Average Interiors,At this price customers expect dual color interior
The car is so good as far as look is concerned, but when it comes to value for money it does not give the feel of worthiness. At this price top end ( 16.59 L Nashik Maharashtra ) better interiors are most preferred by any customers. In this segment there are so many other options are available like XUV 500 & many more. feels like high priced vehicle.
