These led strips are so thin that I belive they could be FOC type instead of a multiple led+ diffuser design meaning less led's and more possibility of failure. Tata's harrier "XM" also has lesser DRL bulbs and are Halogen vs LED in higher variants but the diffuser is of same dimensions resulting in similar looks with the possibility of using LED later as drop in replacements.

I did enquire at TaMo dealer on if its possible to upgrade the lower 2 variant drls to higher variant led ones. Was told it would need new wiring kit and won't be done by dealer. I'm now wondering if its possible to retrofit the base Creta with top Creta's head and tail lamp setup.

The aftermarket scene here isn't big so I don't trust on anyone having to splice wires to retrofit without adequate tools.

Planning to upgrade from 2014 Grand i10 (auto) to new Creta sometime down this year.
In Bangalore, for buying experience/offers who is better Advaith or Trident? I got my i10 from Trident (KR Puram) since it is close to home.

Can we buy from one & have the service done in other? what are the pros/cons?

Go for a exchange or sell i10 on own?

Absolutely, you can buy from any one and get it serviced at any Hyundai service centre. There are no pros and cons.

Try checking how much money you're getting if you sell it on your own, but Hyundai might have exchange bonus, which is a discount over and above the selling price of your car.

Hi easyrider,
Firstly, Creta is a good upgrade for i10. Good choice.

Now, here are my views on your queries:

Sales:
Don't worry on sales part. Just check in multiple showrooms and get an idea on pricing and discounts. Then go ahead with whomever gives better pricing/offers and whomever you feel, can handle your buying process better.
I believe more than the showroom, its the sales executive whom we interact with, either breaks or makes a deal.

In Bangalore, prominent dealers of Hyundai are :
Advaith
Trident
Blue
Lakshmi
Pavan

Since you stay near KR Puram, you can checkout:
1. Trident Hyundai at KR Puram
2. Advaith Hyundai at Avalahalli
3. Lakshmi Hyundai at KalyanNagar / Whitefield

So it purely depends on what pricing/offers you get and which dealership you feel better approachable.
(Sometime back, my friend had shortlisted Trident, but got a better deal at Lakshmi. So he went ahead with Lakshmi Hyundai)

Service:
More than sales, service is the one we should be more concerned about.
Purchasing is a one time deal, but service is for years to come.
Again, you can buy from one dealership and get the service done at other dealer's service centre. No problem at all.
Incase you are satisfied with the trident service, you can still get your car serviced there, even if you don't purchase your car from them.

Selling your old car: (you can follow below steps)
1. Check in cars 24, friend's circle, OLX etc to get an idea on your car valuation
2. Check if prices obtained from above meets your expectation
3. Then check in dealership, what is the price they quote in case of exchange
4. Incase you are satisfied with the final offer
(selling price + exchange bonus), go ahead with exchange.
5. Incase of exchange, it saves you from the hassles of searching a buyer, selling, documentation etc.
(Also if exchanged, in most cases you will get to keep your car until 1-2 days before your new car delivery)
6. Incase you are not satisfied with exchange offer, you can sell it on your own, as per your convenience


Though I stay in Bangalore, usually I get my i10 serviced in my hometown at Advaith, since I am familiar with all the staff there.
Even the service from Bangalore Advaith(ITPL) was not bad, as per my limited experience with them.

All 3 Hyundai cars my brother owns, were bought one each from Advaith, Blue and Pavan.
As per him all dealership were good. But service wise he prefers Pavan Hyundai, for their better approach.

A specifications comparison between the 2020 Hyundai Creta and its competition.

In this comparison, I've pitted the 2020 Hyundai Creta with the Kia Seltos, VW T-Roc, MG Hector, Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass and the Mahindra XUV 5OO.

At least one decent review of the Creta 2020 is now out. Please check out the free pdf of the April 2020 edition of the Autocar India magazine available on their website.

Main points:

- suspension set up is softer compared to Seltos.
- DCT feels more refined in the Creta.
- Overall, very similar to Seltos. But because of paddleshifters and panoramic sunroof, it is likely to again be a hot-seller.

I didn't know about this or maybe I've missed this if posted earlier.

Hyundai offers three different drive modes with the Creta Turbo, namely Eco, Comfort and Sport. These not only adjust the carís engine and transmission settings but also alter the digital speedometer accordingly. The Comfort mode displays a more relaxed speedo with a dark blue colour, while the Eco mode changes the colour to aqua blue. The Sport mode on the other hand, gets a more aggressive appearance with a highlighted dial and red colour.

Additionally, the New Creta also gets three different traction control/terrain modes Ė Snow, Mud and Sand.

Interesting, the new one looks significantly wider and shorter/more squat than the old.

This is in line with the global trend of crossovers replacing SUVs. All that people really want from an SUV is higher ground clearance, a higher seating position, and more vertical space in the cabin. They do not really care for height and road presence, off road ability, 4WD etc.

Was having a look at the click to buy option of the New Creta. The interior colour of the car has an option of Moss Grey or Obsidian Black. As per the information on the website(www.hyundai.com), there is no customized option of interiors. The black interiors are available only on the turbo version of the car from what I have read till now. Any idea on this? Attaching a screenshot for reference.

I guess it's the only time no one will be able to complain about his driving style.
