Tear on the edge can also be bad. The cost would be somewhere around 12k per tyre.

I have taken delivery of Silver Creta Automatic yesterday. The car is nice to drive around in the city . It's much better than what I had expected in terms of the automatic gearbox. I didn't get a chance to test drive the automatic while booking so I booked the car based on the team-bhp review.

Will post pictures soon.

Now, this is something they should bring in here. The Chinese Creta (ix25) now gets a variant with Hyundai's latest 1.6-liter T-GDI petrol engine with a dual clutch gearbox.

Quote:
The turbocharged four cylinder engine with direct fuel injection produces 160 hp and 250 Nm of torque, which sends power to the front wheels via an in-house developed 7-speed dual clutch gearbox. To distinguish itself from less powerful variants, the Hyundai ix25 has chrome inserts on the dual slat grille, exclusive 5-spoke alloy rim design, and twin exhaust tips tucked underneath the bumper.

Hi all,

I plan to drive from bangalore to Ooty on 23rd Oct in my creta 1.6 SX CRDI which has clocked 457Kms .
I need your suggestion on the vehicle Breakin Process for the first 1000 km as its my first long drive on new car.

As per user manual, engine speed should be maintained between 2,000 rpm and 4,000 rpm.
I rarely cross 2000 rpm during my drive in city traffic.

Bangalore to Ooty road consists of ghat section,4 lane and 2 lane and you cannot accelarate much

VEHICLE BREAK-IN PROCESS as per Usermanual

No special break-in period is needed. By
following a few simple precautions for the
first 1,000 km (600 miles) you may add to
the performance, economy and life of
your vehicle.
Do not race the engine.
While driving, keep your engine speed
(rpm, or revolutions per minute)
between 2,000 rpm and 4,000 rpm.
Do not maintain a single speed for long
periods of time, either fast or slow.
Varying engine speed is needed to
properly break-in the engine.
Avoid hard stops, except in emergencies,
to allow the brakes to seat properly.
Don't let the engine idle longer than 3
minutes at one time.
Don't tow a trailer during the first 2,000
km (1,200 miles) of operation.

Just follow what the manual says and you should be fine.

The key is to not keep a constant speed (engine speed) for too long. But that doesn't mean u should rev up and down like crazy, just drive sensibly and once in 10 mins just let the revs go a bit higher than 2500.
The main thing is to not race the engine like mad. Its okay to do a spirited drive.

Every time you start off after a break, drive gently for 2-3 mins to give a chance for the engine oil to run thru all the parts.

A 2-4 lane road will be good. That means you will automatically keep speeding and slowing down.

All the best for the drive!

Hyundai Creta Gets Pricier

Quote:
Now with almost 6 months waiting period (on some variants), and about 50,000 pending orders,*Hyundai India has silently increased the price of all the variants of the Creta by up to Rs. 20,000. The sole reason behind this move could be the company's intention of increasing its profit margin.

REQUESTING EXPERTS TO KINDLY ADVICE AND SHARE THEIR OPINIONS!

I had booked my Creta Automatic on 24 July, and looks like I am finally getting it tomorrow!

The on-road price is working out to Rs. 17.52 L, and the insurance is Rs 60,000/-. This is a lot more expensive than if I purchase the insurance from a third party. But the dealer tells me if I buy it from them, they will take care of everything, right from coming home to inspect the vehicle to completing all the formalities and till the closure. And that if I take it from elsewhere, I will not get the same service, as I will have to do the running around myself and take the car to them for inspection. Is this true or is he simply trying to mislead me to sell his insurance?

I would please request the experts to let me know their views and if it is indeed true that I will be taking the longer and inconvenient route if I don't buy it through the dealer? Or will I get the same extent of insurance and the same service even if I buy it from a third party?

Thank you in advance, for your time!

Firstly, I hope you are opting for a 0 depreciation policy. Coming to your query, as long as the company you are buying insurance from has a cashless facility with the after sales service centre you would be visiting for repairs, you should be sorted.
The showroom sales executive is giving you the classic sales pitch, and he / she is going to be nowhere in the picture in the unfortunate event that you need to make an insurance claim, let along give you any special services.

Looks like they have given the grill in china the Ranger Rover treatment. Really like it compared with the Indian version.

Its advisable to follow the manual instructions for engine run in as the manufacturer knows the best about it.

There is dedicated TBHP thread on this topic where you might be able to get some useful tips or may be it will add to confusion further...

Great review as always, GTO! But as you said, if one is in the market for an SUV (and not a soft-roader) one must look elsewhere.

And to be honest, all the hype about the Chinese NCAP results and the high-tensile steel monocoque structure I'm afraid still leaves me (and dare I say, others too) unimpressed about its durability & strength - and also, as you mentioned, its street cred. After all the dust settles, the traditional (old-fashioned?) body-on-frame structure wins the strength/durability stakes (& not torsional rigidity, let me stress) hands down.

Guys i have a friend of mine interested in the top end variant of Creta 1.4 CRDi. But the problem is its availability. Dealers(from different cities that too) quoting very long waiting period of 6-7 months or even higher. Apart from the waiting period, the dealers are also suggesting that 1.4 model is a slow selling model that is 'made to order' and may soon be discontinued. Not sure how true the fact is or the dealers less interested in selling the 1.4 variant. So its more like a confusing situation. My friend needs suggestion from Tbhp experts out here.

Creta doesn't have a top end variant on the 1.4 litre. I guess there might be truth in what the dealers say. After all if there is no demand it is likely to be discontinued. I guess we have just one Creta 1.4 on the forum and haven't heard of anyone else having one. The 1.6 is a gem of an engine and I recommend that your friend takes a look at this and sort out the variant based on his budget. The SX variant is fairly good value ( around 3 lakhs cheaper than the SX(O) trim OTR)with all the essential features including driver and passenger airbags, alloys, 5 inch touch screen ice etc.
