Hello,

Fellow petrolheads,
Please feel free to share your opinions and thoughts about the Creta, current-gen and previous-gen.
As the new Gen is to be launched somewhere in march 2020, we can shed some light on what changes can/would be made to the launch model.
Currently being displayed at hall 3 at the 2020 auto expo the Creta can be experienced from afar.
We may use this thread to explore, debate and point out things we like and dislike about the Creta offering from Hyundai.
Longterm reviews are always revealing and are highly appreciated on this thread.
keep revving.

I have a lot of input with regard to a long term review and I will be sharing my thoughts on the various aspects of Creta on this Forum.
let us discuss the currently launched car the Hyundai Creta 2020. I personally liked that the engine option of the 1.4 turbo petrol and the DCT is now available in the creta.
the earlier car had a CVT and it was glitchy during quick throttle inputs.
The bump in power and the smoothness in DCT will make the ride a whole lot better I presume.

Just to add a point, I would like to say that the 1.6 AT diesel never gave me a figure near the ARAI figure of 19km/l
I got a constant 11 in City no matter the driving style, highway if you don't exceed 100kmph you get a 14-15km/l.

I just got news that the new creta is set to launch on 17 march 2020.
That is about a month from today.
Still no update on the interior from the manufacturer. We only have a confirmation on a 10inch+ touchscreen center panel.

Currently the hyundai venue is demanding a waiting period of 7 months in hyderabad region. Creta might demand a similar response, best advice would be to put down the booking amount and get on the list.
Colour options might be similar to the current offerings.

The 1.4 turbo petrol is the only engine option that was displayed at the auto expo 2020.
Derived from the seltos we know this is a punchy powerplant for sure.

@highwaywarrior but Hyundai will definitely launch the diesel auto combo as it has done fairly well for them in the old Creta as well. Also, if you look at the Seltos bookings, most of them have been towards the automatic gearbox variants which goes on the show the growing demand for automatics in India.

Tier II and Tier III cities might still favor the manual gearbox but major cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru are too chock o blocked to use a manual gearbox car.

@iamsid
yes, the Creta did have a high amount of automatic sales in tier 1 cities.
Clutch riding in stop-go traffic is not the most ideal thing to do.
The gen 1 Creta had a torque converter auto but it seems like the new get will have a dual-clutch option available.
DCT seems to be overheating issues cropping up as per user reviews, might be that the torque converter could be kept alive in the Creta range.
Its good to see automatics making way into our homes, i believe driving automatics makes you a more matured driver.

7 months? that is a long waitlist. Seems like Creta will also have such an effect on the market so I would suggest getting your bookings done ASAP.
The new car might have a reclining seat at the rear too like the seltos.

well, I can vouch for that too, Hyundai fuel efficiency figures are lower than they project.
I have owned an i20 1.4D and a creta 1.6D AT too both gave me a combined efficiency figure of 13km/l and 11km/l respectively.

So, the touch screen looks like it will make it to the production model. (have fun wiping smudge marks off those screens all day long)
The Creta also increases in overall length, does that mean that the luggage capacity increases as well? I tend to believe the 1st gen had about 450-500 liters of boot space available.
