HYUNDAI CRETA

INTRODUCTION

The Creta is Hyundai’s compact SUV. It competes with Renault Duster, Ford EcoSport and Maruti Suzuki S-Cross in the compact SUV segment.

 

 

EXTERIOR

Inspired from Hyundai Santa Fe, the Creta looks unique and fresh. The front fascia features a new radiator grille with triple chrome slats, wraparound headlamps with projector LEDs and DRL strips, and vertically placed fog lamps.

The Creta is based on the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy. Both the front pillars are blackened and designed optimally at right slant angle, making it air-flow resistant and get increased fuel efficiency.

The plastic cladding in the lower half gives it that rugged SUV look.
The side profile looks dynamic with the shoulder line running high across till the tail-lamps. The top trim gets 215/60 R17 wheels with diamond-cut alloys, while the other trims come with 205/60 R16 tyres with clean silver alloys.

At the rear, it gets a wide tail gate and split combination tail lamps.

 

INTERIOR

Hyundai has loaded the Creta with a lot of features. The design is very appealing, good quality materials are used and there is ample space for head/shoulder/leg room. It also features a touchscreen multi-function infotainment system, vertically placed AC vents, power sockets ? both in front and rear ? a lot of storage spaces, static bending lights, shark fin antenna, keys-less entry, electronic ORVMs, and controls-mounted steering wheel. Providing premium feel and decent room, this compact SUV stands out in the competition.

ENGINE, PERFORMANCE, FUEL ECONOMY, RIDE, HANDLING & SAFETY

The Creta is powered by a 1.4L U2 CRDi diesel engine producing a maximum power of 90ps and a peak torque of 220Nm, while the petrol engine is powered by a 1.6L CRDi motor producing 122Ps of power and a peak torque of 151Nm. And a third powertrain option is also available ? Automatic+Diesel- which is powered by a 1.6L CRDi diesel motor and produces a power of 127Ps with peak torque of 259Nm.

 

 

The Automatic Diesel transmission is very smooth. The fuel efficiency is also good.
Despite being not-that-heavy a vehicle, there is a very little body roll around the corners. The steering is also well-weighed, giving the pleasure of a comfortable ride, on tarmac roads. Also despite having a ground clearance 210mm, it is not a proper off-roading vehicle, as it does not have separate rear suspensions and no under body metal plate for protection.

For safety, it offers 6 air bags, ABS with EBD, ESC, VSM and hill assist control.

 

Paddle Shifters

Enables the driver to shift gears with touch of a finger

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

Tyre pressure monitoring system which helps you to keep watch tyre pressure for enhanced safety

 

 

 

Drive Mode Select (Eco, Comfort and Sport)

Be it on the Road or off it, the All New CRETA has the dynamism to go the distance with its Drive Mode Select (Eco, Comfort and Sport)

 

Aerodynamic design

The sloping roof profile reduces forward air flow resistance and rear spoiler effect for improved fuel economy and driving stability

 

CONCLUSION

Considering all the pros and cons of the Creta, and Hyundai’s reliability, competent after-sales services and a 3 year unlimited kilometers warranty, this car is worth buying.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Hyundai Creta

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.
