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.

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.
This seems like a good setup to have, so the only difference between the Creta and Seltos will be features and options offered?
I have not test-driven the Seltos yet but the 1.4 on paper looks like a good contender.
What can we expect from the creta that the seltos is not offering right now?
one thing I can point straight away is a panoramic sunroof in the Creta.

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??

PFA the pictures of the new i20. There is still a high demand for hatchbacks in India. this product could be the top seller by the looks of it.

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).

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.

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.

"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.

These interiors look sleek and contemporary as per this render. The new dash setup with the floating screen is a good addition. The sleek ac vents also make a futuristic place to be in.
There is a miss on the waterfall display unit but the existing system will be a touchscreen, i believe hyundai is keeping a few things for a model update.

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 am pleased to announce the launch of the hyundai creta. The new car does have an option of all disc brakes from a certain trim level onward.
This is definitely good news.
I will be giving more updates with regard to the variants and what you get for your buck in future posts.
I will also be conducting a test drive to give you guys initial impressions.

A few plus points about the previous gen Creta were ride comfort, decent space in the cabin, torquey motor and good refined motor which was hardly audible at idle.

So I was looking around to get info about the safety rating of the new Hyundai Creta. I am currently not able to find EURO NCAP ratings of the 2020 Creta but I know that the previous-gen car scored 4 and 5 stars in major crash tests of the Euro NCAP rating.
