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.
Bhai Congrats and wish you a long lasting ownership , Last i read you had booked a XUV500. I Guess i have lost track of your car booking record

Just an honest suggestion. Stretch your budget once for all an buy a Toyota. You must be losing big time in Depreciation of your cars.

Must say, GTR Pro have some great looking alloy designs. I too recently got one for my Creta.
Thanks! And yes, it was a conscious choice for the contrast and also, gels well with the silver c-pillar and roof rail.

She's passed her PDI with flying colours. Bringing her home by tomorrow evening, once the paperwork is done.

Have to think of a good name for her.

A worthy choice for Jack of all kind of tasks and then some. Even feature distribution by Hyundai has also been spot on this time. Wishing happy miles.

Have been follower of your couple of Honda City as well as Creta threads(long before I was member).

I cant help but wonder, as far as I remember, you also had Ecosport, Tiago and XUV earlier as well. Do they all turned out to be an unfortunate experience?


PS - I am from CG as well, Raipur basically.

Do give us some feedback on the brakes viz a viz the old one. Lots of owners say its better than the outgoing model but not the best in segment yet.

Congrats again, and this time I think you should take the time with the name, drive the car, settle into it, and maybe with a years worth of troublefree experience you can christen it into the family fold.

Also while I'm the last one to be superstitious, religious or anything of that sort, this time I feel you should do the pooja yourself instead of by the priest (aarti outside, agarbatti inside et al), break a coconut or pumpkin, take the longest warranty available and also tie a nimbu mirchi, and I mean them all even though I'm an athiest (the Brahmin in me wakes up occasionally), blast Ganesha hymns as well.

I know Hyundais are taking a bad rap for quality and reliability in India these days, however I can certainly assure you that in the 1 lakh kms I've driven them, no repairs/ snags/ quality problems till date. All of them have seen deep floods, bad roads, horrible traffic and a few bumps, zero sweat ownership experience given that the service station is a half kilometer away from my place as well. Truly a great brand to me.

Congratulations Avinash.

Welcome back and hope this car keeps you happy and fulfilled for a long long time.

Looks neutral in white colour and braking in the new generation is definitely a lot lot better than the model you had or I have. Looking for to your feedback on the same.

Happy (s)miles with the car.

I can’t help but comment, as this picture just brought back the memories of my 1st-gen Creta. Exactly 4 years & 10 months back when I had visited the showroom just a day before the delivery & the car was parked similarly for a wash. Wow!! What a feeling it was back then!

Wishing you all the good luck for tomorrow & may you have a blissful ownership with your new steed.

Didn't think of it much when the dealer called pre lockdown this week to confirm booking before mid July but now hearing from others who are in queue that the prices will be hiked next month.

First of all, Congratulations on the new car.
When I was researching on Creta, it was your ownership review that helped me more than the official review because yours were the one for the particular variant I wanted. I was a little disappointed when I learned from the thread that you have sold your steed, and now glad to hear that you are back in the club

My ride is about three months short of her third birthday and has about 22k kms of experience. The braking is adequate for my driving style but is not good for hard braking. Earlier I have never experienced the ABS kicking in but since the rains started, even on the slightest slush/gravel the ABS has started to take over. I guess this that case of ABS coming in too early as reported by others.

If it is not too much trouble, could you please tell as to why you chose to let go of the earlier one?

Took her home yesterday evening.

2nd-Gen Hyundai Creta @ Auto Expo 2020. Edit: Launched at 9.99 lakhs-img20200720wa0063.jpg

Some initial impressions:

- Drive is as smooth as silk ("makkhan", as they say). Never for once does one get the feeling that the gears have shifted or the transmission is hunting for the right gear.

- No rubber band effect felt upto 60 kmph, even on sudden dabs on the throttle.

- Much-needed lower back lumbar support. My bad back and left leg have been profusely thanking me. Nicely contoured seats with decent thigh support too.

- Touchscreen is zippy to respond. Bluelink hasn't been enabled yet.

- Gear shifting requires slight effort, moving all the way from P to D.

- Bonnet is heavy as hell. Needs some considerable heft to be lifted. Rear boot door is heavy too.

- I love the trio beam LED headlamps. Sufficient illumination. Aided well by the crescent shaped DRLs.

- The panoramic sunroof is a sight at night, when the moon & stars are out. My little one just can't get enough of it.

- Suspension is superb at low speeds. Small bumps and breakers are almost not felt. Sudden and sharp breakers intrude into the cabin.

- Car is shod with JK Tyre UX Royales (215/60/R17) manufactured in the 24th week of 2020. New brand for me. Absolutely no tyre noise inside the cabin. Yet to test on the highway.

- Mileage for the drive home stood at 14.8 kmpl.

- The White shade makes the car seem bigger than it is. My family keeps commenting on how huge the Creta has grown!


My little one has christened her "Phoenix", after her favourite X-Men/Marvel/mythological character.

Name is apt, considering everything.

Compiling the initial ownership report in the Assembly Line. Should be out by this weekend.

Auto hold is for stopping in traffic or at traffic signals. Shift to Neutral, press the Auto Hold button, and let go of the brake pedal. To resume, press the Auto Hold button again to disable it & shift back to Drive.
