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.

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.

DS
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.

Yes, I am awaiting more details too, also the color options. Any clue on when the deliveries will start and what will be the waiting period like?
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.
The powerplant options for the Creta will see a change with respect to the previous range.
NEW ENGINE OPTIONS will be
1.5L petrol naturally aspirated.
1.5L turbo diesel.
1.4L turbo petrol.
Same as we see on the current Seltos.

The Creta never really seemed short on space and had a comfortable ride set up and good rear seats, even 6ft + passengers could be seated without any issues.
The only complaint would be better under-thigh support, a better-sculpted seat might fix that.
Adding to the plus points of the Creta would be large-sized rearview mirrors that were offered on the previous-gen Creta.

As I have mentioned in other discussions on this forum is that the sole reason i parted with my Hyundai Creta were the inadequate and faulty brakes.
I have had noises coming during hard breaking that I had never heard in any car, a weird judding and jarring noise was sometimes making its way through the front and the transmission area of the vehicle.
I got my brakes replaced twice within warranty but the problem of high-speed brake vibration persisted.
post 100km/h brake stops, gave a vibration in the steering rack and noise from the front brakes usually happened on long journeys with high-speed braking.
I also had brake issues, brakes lacked the bite for sure.
The lack of having no backlight mirror switch was a downer when I bought a 17L+ car.

One of the main selling factors and strong points of the Creta has always been the fact that it gets a great resale value, I remember a friend of mine wanted to pick up a used Creta automatic under Rs. 10 Lakhs back in 2019 and he had a really tough time trying to find one!
Agreed @trailmaker_666.
Creta has been one of the few SUV's that have a good demand in the resale market.
I sold my Creta for about 11 Lacs and even used car dealers were ready to give me 9-10L spot deals.
I got more dough due to an extended warranty on the car.

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.
That's nice to hear, a new i20 is around the corner. you should definitely give it a look once it's out in the market. Kia will be also bringing in their version of the i20.

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.
Yes, the smudge mark issue is a real pain. luggage capacity might see a slight bump, but I think the extra length is used as cabin space rather than in the luggage area. Do we see a HUD on the creta??

The i20 has always been a good looking car but over time, somehow it has not evolved that much, or maybe my taste has evolved a little(pun intended).
Yes, i20 has reached its limits, but its an economical all-rounder and a premium offering in the current hatchback market.
For Indians post 10 lacs hatchbacks stop making sense and they start looking at other options.
Hatchbacks are usually starter cars for people in India.

I agree with @trailmaker_666 here. The Creta has been a hit in the used car market as well. In fact, I remember a dealer describing the Creta as good as "liquid cash" in his store. There's a great demand for the Creta and it has sort off become a brand in itself.
"liquid cash" could be the right term to use for the creta, after the Fortuner and the Innova it is the creta that holds value best.
Diesel cretas still do have a much better resale than pertol cretas but we should also consider a lesser cost to own for a petrol creta.
