Yes @pgsagar, it's definatly coming with Diseal AT. I am just thrilled with this news.You can add XUV as well to bellow 20L Diesel AT category as it's almost certain that M&M would also launch a XUV AT around Diwali this year. Very exciting time for Indian Auto scene and exciting time for me personally as well. I have decided to bid adieu to our 1.5yr old Terrano. By the end of this year I will decide which one of these will replace the Terrano.

In this interview to CNBC, Hyundai India senior VP tells that its a global car launching in India. He even declares that India manufactured Creta will be exported to other countries as well. hyundaicreta.com also says that its 'HYUNDAI’S NEW GLOBAL SUV'.I sense its more than just renaming an already selling ix25.

As rightly mentioned by a fellow BHPian in this discussion, its great to see Hyundai giving importance to Indian market by launching global SUV here first. I still remember Hyundai's entry to India back in 1998. The way they introduced themselves in a foreign country and big launch of Santro with Mr SRK as brand ambassador witch was a runway success. They have come a long way since then. How I wish our very own Tata's and M&M's had entered this passenger cars segment much earlier. But again, that doesn't guarantee a success(remember Daewoo Motors?)

So if the ix25 is already selling in other markets, how does that make it a Global Launch just by renaming it? If this is what Hyundai is really up to, I feel its more of a marketing gimmick than anything else without any value addition to us, the customers.

Honestly, I do not expect this from a company like Hyundai.

It probably is not just a case of renaming. Creta maybe an Indianised version of ix25 (read build-to-cost) and marked to be exported to other developing markets. I believe the Grand i10 was another case of Global car launched out of India. Even though its development started in India, they have kind of differentiated it from what is being sold in Europe as the 2nd gen i10.

The Creta enters mass production from tomorrow at Hyundai's Chennai plant, with an official launch scheduled for July 21st. It will come with a 1.6L petrol engine option, and two (1.4L & 1.6L) diesel options.

Is Hyundai supporting Car Play or Android Auto in this or any newly released cars?

I am sure there was no update for ix25 also which makes the statement of launching this car in India even more misleading.

Default Hyundai ix25 Compact SUV caught testing in India. EDIT: Named the Creta

I hope they launch some new paint shades. I am actually tired of their standard 6-7 shades they offer. Any idea on this?

Can't wait to get a new ix25, oops, CRETA. Seems to be a really good package overall that will give Duster, Terrano and Ecosport a run for their money. A very desirable mini-SUV indeed. However, never seen pictures of any test cars with a panaromic sunroof or LED tail lights (which I saw on some ix25 review videos from China) . I guess we won't be getting those in India. Would have been great if Hyundai could make that available even as an option.

My brother from Mumbai reports that he has seen many Creta's today on the sealink without camouflage. He feels they were being driven by Hyundai's drivers and the cars were registered. Is it possible ? I did read that the media drives begin 20th of June.

ET speculates the picing of Creta.

Quote:
Hyundai are renowned for their cut throat pricing and the new Creta will follow this tradition. It is expected that the Korean carmaker will price the new Creta with a starting price of around 9 lakh for the base variant as an introductory offer to garner the sales numbers. The top-spec variant of the Hyundai Creta could be priced around Rs 13 lakh.

If the facelifted Verna 1.6 Diesel is offered with a 4- speed AT, is it probable they would offer the 6- speed with the Creta?
