Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

And there goes my ownership summary of 1 month. Saved me some effort here mate. Couldn't have agreed more with your assessment of car's performance thus far.

Just some 2 cents to add on to what you have summarised.

Likes:
1. Excellent NVH and silent cabin, a friend commented it felt almost like sitting in an EV.

Dislikes:
2. Absence of front parking sensors/360 camera is felt quite often.
3. Minor rattles from sun-glass holder (felt-lining could solve this) and boot door
Anyone worried about so called "thin window glasses" in Creta, needs to seriously try it in real life. After reading all the concerns online about NVH through those so called thin window glasses, I too am pleasantly surprised with the ease with which it drowns all the traffic noise of Bangalore autos and taxis. To an extent that sometimes I have to be extra careful and rely more on my eyes when watching out for those that love overtaking from left (and specially after you have indicated that you are turning left).

I got the 360 camera installed at the time of delivery and boy is it a blessing. Worth every cent (touchwood) thus far.

Shouldn't say it, but glad that you brought up sun glass holder rattle. Don't mean to be rude, just that I face the same issue (in a month old car) and was wondering if it was just me. Switched to fiber frame glasses to avoid the annoying rattle.

Thanks & apologies, please keep sharing.

Where did you get the 360 camera installed (dealership/outside), can you please let us know the model and cost.

I have been stuffing tissues in the sunglass holder as a jugaad, will come around to lining felt one day when i overcome my laziness.

I got Advaith Hyundai (Bangalore - Outer Ring Road Dealer)'s accessories team to install the attached 360 camera prior to delivery. Costed me about 36k. This has recording and dynamic turn guidance functionality too. There is a cheaper version too at 32k (without recording and dynamic lane guidance).

But, please note couple of points:

1. This needs a remote (a small remote sensor is pasted next to steering column) and a USB cable (to connect a USB Drive for storing recordings - only USB 3.0 supported). The USB cable was extended into the glove box.

2. This also needs additional compatible cameras installed (even if your model has a rear one already fitted). Thus, I ended up now with 2 rear cameras.

1) can you provide some pictures?
2) how much did it cost?
3) Is it hyundai genuine accessory?
4) does it come with front sensor as well?

Hey mate,

Laggy => Have not seen/felt any lags in my day to day use, morning or night. Just couple of days back was reviewing a recording from night time and was happy with the playback.
However, please note, the manufacturer has tried making this setup little too much jazzy. Which means, in certain scenarios (like immediately after left turn, you turn right) the camera tries to give you a view as if you are walking around the car, and thus, there may be 2-3 seconds delay in switches between perspectives.

Just to put this in right context, based on your turn indicator, the camera switches playback to the side you are turning towards.

Cost: As mentioned above, costed me 36k all inclusive.

Hyundai gyenuine accessor: No. This is not a genuine Hyundai Accessory, but as it has been sold and installed by Advaith Hyundai dealership itself, believe should be ok. But, please do check with your own dealership for any concerns.

Front Sensor: It has a front camera and also beeps when front comes too close to something. If that's what you mean to ask.

Picture time:

Img#1 Front camera in the grille. It's black color so camouflages well from a distance.

Img#2 Overall front view. Note the two blobs in ORVMs? Those are the side view cameras, next to puddle lamps.

Img#3 View from below of the ORVM camera setup next to puddle lamp.

Hyundai Creta : Official Review-left_orvm_call_20230425_150413.jpg

Img # 4 The view from back. Notice two jolly good cameras giving each other company? . The one on right and more visible is the one linked to 360 camera. Don't ask me what the other one (original reverse camera) does now. When I will have the will to play more, will see how we can shunt out one.
I understand they needed the second reverse camera for the dynamic guide lanes to work properly with the camera display.

Img #5 a close up view of two friends(or foes, don't know which).

Hyundai Creta : Official Review-back_20230425_150503.jpg

Img #6 the red sore, (errr I mean remote sensor) near the steering wheel. Don't read too much into my whining, for first couple of days I did not even realise it was there. Only realised when I was bending to locate something else. Noone sitting in the car has made any wise jokes either about this. So, should be treated as discrete enough. Plus, it's easy to move and stick somewhere more discrete, if you need.

You need this basically when you really need to use the remote to play around with the camera views or, view past recordings. I have only used the remote couple of times (to test the setup).

The USB cable stretched into the glove box. Like I said, there are some restrictions around the compatible USB drives - you need a USB 3.0 version, with 32 to 64 GB size ONLY. Don't know why but accessory team was so serious about this USB specification, that for a moment I was worried if a wrong type will kill the car!

Hyundai Creta : Official Review-usb_cable_20230425_150632.jpg

And, here's how it all comes together to make sure that rude me does not hurt that poor yellow board vehicle, or that always shaking pillar in my car park.

No, my car is not white in color, nor looks that funky (some weird hybrid of BMW and Creta), as shown in the images. It's just the default car used to give you an impression that you are driving something expensive, so watch your 360 degrees carefully.

The image quality is better than it looks here. There are few things at play here: my bad hand with camera, my miserly way of not removing protective film from my HU (my daughter keeps haggling me about it).

Just to give you the perspetive: I did not find any difference/lags between the standard Creta reverse camera and this new setup.

Hope this gives you enough information about the camera, please do let me know. Happy to share and learn!

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

I never knew I needed/wanted the 360 Camera until i test drove some cars that had it. I got my SX(O) Automatic yesterday and i wished i had it when I came home into my crammed parking space. But i think I'm gonna hold for an year until the new Creta facelift with 360 camera comes and get all those Hyundai components installed to get the 360 camera system. Or may be from the Alcazar, that a few accessory guys on YouTube have shown to have been installed in a Creta.

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

Does the creta come with the piano black interiors now or is it just the pictures? Mine's the 2020 model and it is filled with cheap plastics all around the dash.
Honestly, I prefer the seltos' interior quality.

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

Hi everyone!
Got home the 1.5 petrol creta S+ Knight edition in black on the 28th of April. Very satisfied till now. The engine is super refined and silent and the ride is very good. Happy that I got 6 airbags, all four disk brakes and adjustable rear headrests. The family loves the sunroof🙂. As suggested by everyone on this forum, skipped the seatcovers.

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

Hyundai Creta N Line to join Creta facelift in India next year.

The Creta N Line will likely come with the 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine.

Creta N Line will be based on the India-spec Creta facelift.

ASC did the replacement of the corrupt part in warranty. But they took 15 days for it.

Yes, the motherboard was replaced and took 2 hours to finish. They did a nice job.

Maybe because it's the new system and requires additional components/effort.. For me, I got it repaired for 5k including a new display panel.

Hey mate,

Have you looked at options on Mobis? These can be fitted via authorised Hyundai dealers like Advaith and Trident. Will be safe to use but, expensive to purchase.

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

Guys, my BIL is buying Creta SX black shade in Hyderabad. Can owners from Hyderabad suggest good place for under body and ceramic coating shop and contact details if available.
I could not find any specific Creta thread in Hyderabad accessories so posting it here, mods shift to its thread if exists as I could not find one.
Also share is dealer asked for SOT package for 25K for 5 years, is it worth, and also should go ahead with extended warranty as well.
His annual running would be around 10-12K.
