Fantastic review man!! Very close to our official review!! Rating the thread a well-deserved 5 stars.

My hearty congratulations on your new ride Wishing you many happy miles with the car.

I'm also planning to buy a Creta diesel, working currently on the finances. I have some doubts on the vehicle though. Can you please clarify them for me?

1. Some reviews have stated that there is an excessive steering play at 100+ speeds on the highways. What do you say about that? Did you notice something like that?

2. So, your car shows the average speed, time etc. but doesn't have average fuel efficiency and range gauge. Is it the same with even SX(O) model?

3. Do you feel the arm rest is placed too backwards for your height?

4. Also, can you post some more pics showing the functions of the touch screen and reverse camera please?

Thanks in Advance.

Auto wipers, head lights, fuel efficiency gauge, even Auto dimming IRVM are conspicuously missing. Hyundai may have saved for the facelift.

A very detailed review Sir and congratulations on Lazarus.

I am sure the mods who are putting the official review together at the moment would be pulling their hair looking at the amount of detail you have penned down in your review.

I read your review throught my local train journey from Churchgate to Borivali and I never realised when an hour passed. This review would be a boon for prospective Creta buyers.

Wishing you many happy miles with your ride.

The review was super-detailed and matched the quality of an official review as confirmed by GTO himself. I am sure you have set a benchmark for the official reviewers to match and beat. You have made each one of us to go through the feelings you went through.

How I wish Hyundai, usually the master at providing features, did not miss out on some features like Cruise Control, Telescopic steering, rear disc brakes, HID headlights especially because they are charging a hefty premium on this car. In spite of this being the top-end petrol Cost cutting is also visible at some places like the plastic gear lever head and arm-rests. Other than this, there is premium oozing out from all quarters of the car. I am sure this is a car anyone would love to own!!!

All the very best and Wish you many happy miles with your new companion Lazarus!!!

Congratulations on your new car and Wishing you many Happy & Safe Miles.

An excellent write-up followed with pictures, thank you for the detailed info. After my TD with the SX(O) Diesel, my impression towards Hyundai has changed, the Verna 4S still disappoints.

Just a few things I noted in the Diesel top end-

1. The steering feels more weighted, it doesnt make it hard to maneuver in city limits, but on the highways it feels planted.
2. it comes with black leather seats and it offers excellent space, thigh support and comfort, by far the best Ive seen after the Safari.
3. Body roll was well controlled, but it was only a 10km TD, so really cant give a full green.
4. Brakes were good for a vehicle of this size.

Thank you once again for the excellent write-up, my heart is really in for this vehicle, just waiting for more diesel reviews and I will decide to give up my VENTO for this Beauty 'n Beast.

Thanks, Adarsh. I am looking at a minimum of 50,000 kms of ownership but after that? Let us see.

Yes, for running below 1000 kms per month, petrol is the better bet. Not to mention the amount you save between the petrol/diesel variant difference can give you at least 3 years' worth of petrol as well.

Hyundai has priced the top 3 diesel variants quite steeply. Unless your running is over 1500 kms per month, they don't make sense in buying.

Thank you, Madhav.

1. Nothing of the sort. The steering wheel is weighed well at 100-ish speeds, although it does feel artificially heavy. You don't feel a direct contact with the wheels of your car, like a Ford Fiesta or a Linea for example. But no excessive steering play surprises here.

2 - No average FE or distance to empty present (as in most Hyundai cars). I think distance to empty is present in the SX(O)'s Advanced Supervision Cluster. Naveen (BHPian naveen.raju) can clarify on this.

3 - Definitely yes. The only way I can use it is by leaning back in the seat when the car is in cruising mode and I am relaxing. Even then, the hard plastic on top of the armrest doesn't feel comfortable. Have to get the thing covered with the seat cover set to make it useful.

4 - All done in these recent posts up above. Go through all of them for complete details, my friend.

I am sure they had their reasons for not giving many features which are already present in their comparatively lower offerings (Grand i10, Elite i20, Verna 4S). Am sure most of these features will be added to the facelift which might be due in a couple of years.

But I am glad they didn't compromise on the basic things such as a proper full-sized set of engines, cutting bumpers and corners to duck under 4 meters, bigger sized tyres like the Creta deserves, the 6-speed AT from the Elantra, etc.




That's it for now. Next set of updates will be on the accessories I select when I hit the shops from tomorrow onwards.

Ciao for now, team!

Fantastic Effort there Avinash and what a review!! You have managed to covered every bit of it and it can't get any better. Congratulations on yet another brilliant, well-thought, Clean and a worthy product from the Hyundai Stable. Their quality of cars have been top notch and it should keep you happy and smiling for years.

Only yesterday I had a Creta in my IRVM while It performed a U-Turn at a roundabout while I continued straight and It did give a feel of how big it looked from the front and as it continued to expose its side when it took that turn!

Good luck and happy mile crunching!

Rating this thread well deserved 5 Stars without a second thought.

Excellent writeup. Congratulations!!! I read it completely. I too have booked the sx+. Hyundai should've offered SX(O) in petrol. Yes the pricing is on the higher side since most of the parts are from i20 and Verna.

Many many congratulations avi, your Lazarus looks absolutely smashing in white! As was expected, you have penned down a superb ownership thread and your eye for details is really really commendable.
Petrol SX+ seems to be a good VFM option and I am kind of leaning towards the same as well. My running is around 1k to 1.2k kms per month so am trying to figure out if I need the diesel or not. If only they had an SX(O) option for the petrol as well ( those 17" diamond cut alloys have me drooling all over them!).
Wishing you many happy kilometres with your Lazarus, this is one thread I'll definitely keep following. Cheers mate!

Woah!!! that's one detailed ownership thread... rated 5 *

BTW, I see the comparison you did with EcoSport petrol(1.0L ecoBoost). Agreed its a smaller engine but on paper it has more power and torque compared to the creta. How exactly is the real life difference in terms of power delivery and ride/handling quality?

The reason I ask is, in future when i go for my upgrade I need a petrol but need the turbo-blast(like the diesels) as well. So for me the turbo-charged petrols make more sense unless the NA engine is as explosive as the Etios petrol/1.5L iVtec.
