I thought both SX and SX (O) have alloy wheels !!. Can you please confirm on this ?

SX has 5" touch screen audio system where as SX (O) gets a 7" touch screen AVN.

There is so much confusion going on regarding the variants. In spite of the vehicles having moved to stock yards (as seen in the pictures), the dealers are not ready to divulge any concrete information. In case of the S Cross which is also releasing shortly, the vehicle, was been fully revealed and reviewed on the Autocar show. Don't know why Hyundai is keeping it such a top secret and at the same time we hear about 10,000 bookings

Because Hyundai knows that they have a winner on hand. There is everything going for it. They really dont need to spend too much on marketing and promotions right now. Word of mouth is helping them a lot.

And does the SX+ AT gets the 5" or the 7" ? I know I should just calm down and wait for the official launch but I just can't help but obsess over what the AT is getting and not getting vis a vis the SXo :-/

The Creta has well and truly started it's arrival at dealer stockyards.

And let me be the first to say this - for all those who have been eagerly waiting for this wonderful mini-Q3, you will NOT be disappointed. At all!

Default Creta has arrived at dealer yards!

Creta has arrived at dealer yards!

The first batch of cars have reached all main dealers. They are strictly instructed to keep the cars in the yard and not take them out for test drives. We were allowed to start / jump in and take pictures but not drive :(

My colleague had made an (unofficial) advance payment almost a month ago and hence was invited to check out the car at the dealer yard today. I had tagged along with him.

Feedback : Car looks absolutely stunning and massive! Completely a class apart from EcoSport & Duster and both will RIP!

There are already several reviews and information available in this thread and hence I am only listing a few new ones,

SX also has Start/Stop button (I dint see the SX version as it was taken somewhere inside).

Plastic bottom engine cover (splash shield) available.

Bridgestone tyres , Exide maintenance free battery

180 watt rear power socket.

Proper DRL within headlamps.

All that remains is the ride and the pricing. Apart from the rear window line being pretty high compared to the seating position, I foresee minimal issues.

Sorry to say that the Duster that I was considering looks a remote village cousin compared to the Creta :-(. Today I got a call from Renault offering 65k+ outright discount plus 15k exchange discount on the 85PS. The fellow sounded desperate.

I suspect this to be a SX+ model. 16 inch alloys with chrome door handles. Also appears to have shark fin antenna.

Asking for that much money without even a test drive seems extreme. I wonder what the demand really is that is letting the dealers ask for things like these.

Vow. Is he crazy? Haven't heard of 50% advance for any car on pre booking.So he is asking for around 7 lakh on an SX(O). Hold off and they will come around. I know there is too much excitement around this launch, but this is ridiculous.

The 16 Lakh range is another first. Can we know who this dealer is ? I was thinking around 14 Lakhs OTR for the SX(O)?
