A fb group member shares how a simple scratch on the bumper takes the headlamp along.New Creta’s headlamp sits flush with the bumper and that too in the damage prone area of the bumper. Look how Harrier’s headlamp cleverly sits in a slight cavity to prevent such damage.

Thanks for your reply.
I agree with your assessment as well.

I love the Honda City's overall driveability. The engine is great and the steering is really good as well. It doesn't have a lot of play and is quite precise.

The only feature I will miss in the GTX manual that I could get in roughly the same price in the SX(O) IVT would be the ventilated seats. I don't care a lot about the drive/traction control modes, Electronic parking brake or the BOSE audio system.

I would get a punchier engine in the Seltos and better overall driveability, I think.

The Seltos seems like a better option currently.

Thanks for your reply.
I was looking at the overall value add between the SX(O) IVT and the GTX manual.
The GTX manual seems like a better option for me.

True that. Finally it depends on what you value more, the creature comforts or the sheer driving pleasure. Having driven the 1.4L turbo, I can surely say that this particular engine is simply enjoyable to drive. This one will definitely be
a decent upgrade to your beautiful VTEC motor. Plus you'll be opting for the manual, so no in-famous DCT issues.

Everything said and done, PLEASE test drive both the cars and see what suits you best.

All the best with your pick!

After seeing a few of the new Cretas out on the streets it suddenly struck me that it would be accurate to think of Hyundai as the Samsung of cars. They both seem to have similar values and design philosophies (and, going by this car, contempt for the “form follows function” adage!) Very, very far from being my cup of tea but they both seem to have the Indian market well figured out.

The new creta has tons of features, infact much more than the competetion, however one feature the new creta missed out was the cornering head lamps which the earlier creta had. Actually, in this new creta the lamps are so fitted that the need for cornering headlamps is negated. This is purely my observation as I have already driven my car for 3k km. I think this is the reason for such a headlamp design. This design will have its pros and cons.

No offence to the respective owners.

Seeing the great pics clicked and shared by members and owners here I thought the design of the Creta had started growing on me. I had even started accepting the rear design.

But yesterday I saw a white Creta from afar and after one look I just couldn't come to terms with the design. The rear design for one is again back to something I can't live with.

Even my family commented that why have they ruined such a beautiful design which the earlier one had.

Beautiful! Are those roof rails aftermarket? My understanding is that yours is the E/Ex variant.

Thanks to Parag Nandi.

Also, those who have booked the base variants E diesel & EX petrol have received this message from their Hyundai dealership:

How do you get people to buy expensive variant, simply by increasing the waiting period by absurd duration on the base variants.

Expensive variants = big fat margins for both dealer and manufacturer.

Not only cars this trend can be seen in smartphones as well.
One Plus launched One Plus Nord for 25k 64GB base variant but they won’t be selling the same for some time. They are pushing 128 and 256 GB variants.
As a result a customer who has to buy the same would shell out 2k or 4K more that he intended to in the first place.
Sure each and every company has a right to price it’s products whatever they feel like but increasing the waiting period on the cheaper model so that the customer buys an expensive variant which is readily available is not ethical IMHO.

Hyundai Creta Crosses 65,000 Bookings in 5 months. The bookings for the diesel variants are steadily increasing according to Hyundai as 60% of the total reservations is for the oil-burner.

I guess the hype about turbo petrol performance aside, most actual customers know the advantages of diesel. Normal usage means petrol gives half the mileage, the dealership will let the customers have a test ride in the powerful petrol.

Ford used to have a 1.6 petrol fiesta as the test drive vehicle to let customers enjoy the performance and eventually buy the diesel. Good business trick.

I was expecting this and was surprised they were doing a good number of deliveries of Diesel E and Petrol EX thus far. These were real VFM variants and now ill be a distant dream for buyers since it is almost guaranteed that by the time Hyundai is ready to deliver these the prices would have gone up an breached the magic 10 lakh mark which would make them disproportionately more expensive due to the road tax regime.

Hyundai probably made very little money on the Diesel E Variant - the very next EX variant which has only the infotainment system as a key addition is priced 1.3 lakhs higher!
