Nice experience overall of the interaction with Hyundai GM and executives. Posting a couple of pics 2nd-Gen Hyundai Creta @ Auto Expo 2020.

If you don't mind, can you give me the exact email you used to reach the GM? I wish to expedite the delivery of my booking, too, but the dealership is still quoting November()

Congratulations
I saw a white Creta (just a cursory glance as I drove past it) & can say the front end looks bigger in person, even though it is marginally bigger only. Also, the front end has neutral looks than the ugly looks, many people have commented, it has.

Congratulations man!
The Creta looks smashing in the silver shade!
These rims look so much better than ones on the Turbo variant (Is it listed in the accessory list?).
Wishing you lacs of joyful and hassle-free miles with the Korean hunk

Congratulations! The alloys looks fabulous & Creta in this silver shade looks much better. Curious to know how many years warranty did you opt for, since it customisable?

Thanks CARDEEP, yes due to bigger front the car looks like a SUV rather a city car. And actually looks good in person. I went for SX(O) only for the alloys and extra airbags.

Thanks Nazaar25 for the lovely wishes. I am not sure about these alloys but the SX ones does figure in the accessory list.

Thank You PPS, i already own a black car and know the pain of keeping it clean so black was a no for creta. In silver it looks bigger as the silver on the sides merges with the car colour. I chose 4 years/60k km warranty as the 5 year/ 50k sounded too optimistic

Thank you, but got some good news today, so I won't be needing it! Dealership has assured delivery by the end of August. Went with the Galaxy Blue SX(O) IVT. Can't wait!

Is it just me or the new Creta looks smaller in comparison to the previous gen one. I know that the new one is actually longer and wider than the old one and it looks big from the front but looking at the profile it appears smaller. I only had a fleeting glance of a white one but it appeared smaller. Does this has anything to do with that god awful silver cladding running from C pillar to the front. (All the more reason to choose the silver colour)

Also the horn sounded meeker than one on mine.

We were on the lookout for a petrol AT and I called up the local Hyundai guys yesterday to casually enquire about the availability of the IVT in either White or Black. They replied in the negative by checking out the factory stock which was empty and said I won't get one till after 5th August, if I booked yesterday itself.

Pulled a few strings, made a few calls, and received a call 30 minutes later that a White SX IVT is in transit (together with a Red diesel SX AT) and is scheduled to dock and get unloaded on Sunday. Checked the brochure thoroughly and decided that we can live without the other features in the SX(O) - fully digital MID, ventilated seats, Bose system, etc., but I'll miss the extra 4 airbags.

The customer who had this SX IVT initially allotted was having loan issues and was asking for more time, so they were ready to divert it to me.

VIN was sent quickly and manufacturing date decoded to 26th June 2020. (Red Diesel AT had rolled out on 25th June 2020 - one day earlier)

Fired off a booking amount yesterday night and got the car allocated to myself. Should pick it up on Monday or Tuesday after a detailed PDI.

I have also been assured by a few sources that the ABS & braking has been thoroughly reworked (earlier first-gen Cretas mostly suffered from this problem of the ABS kicking in too early or too late, and apparently Hyundai has actually addressed this issue) and that it shouldn't be a problem anymore with this all-new generation.

True or not, I guess we will find out in time when we live with the car.

Totally second what you felt. Saw a white Creta on the road, it was coming from the opposite lane and I completely mistook it for a Venue, that too when I was not driving(was seated in the rear) and had a little more than a second to see the car.
Somehow, the previous generation Creta in its top-spec guise with those diamond-cut alloys( I have noticed that the Creta with the diamond-cut alloys had greater ground clearance) looked bigger from the front. However, the new one is definitely more imposing.

Congrats, I guess you hold a new BHPian (or even national) record for most car purchases in a span of 5 years Glad to have you back on the Hyundai fold (though I guess you have an i20 as well?). Isn't it deja vu all over again with the white Creta? Any reasons to choose a slightly controversial designed Creta over a Seltos? I think if the car is going to be used well and for longer, the higher spec will keep things interesting, lower variants get boring after a year.

Looking forward to a new ownership thread, the early reports on the first gen Creta by you and nkghai were what set the ball rolling essentially, for the car in the community.

I feel the SX(O) alloys are not available as an accessory because SX(O) comes with a highline TPMS system whereas variants lower than SX get a lowline TPMS, so to prevent a malfunction I guess those alloys are not available as an accessory

Congratulations on your new car sir!

So you're buying an XUV500 and the new creta in one go? Must say both are polar opposites as one is newly launched without reviews and the other as you said, has practicality even though very aged.

Cheers to your new car, looking forward to a new ownership thread!
