My last battery lasted 5 years on a diesel car which is pretty impressive.

As for the mileage, Hyundai AT's are known for their poor mileage figures, but 6kmpl is pretty low. Our Alcazar 2.0 petrol AT gave 6-7kmpl initially but after getting the service done (changing filters, engine oil), it averages around 10kmpl.
As Mr Naveen said, battery should last 3-4 years easily. I also vouch for Amaron (get the one with highest warranty for peace of mind).

Coming to your concern, one thing I wanted to check. Is your car chauffer driven? Do you have a reason to believe that driver is using car music system or fan when the car is off? That could be one of the reasons for low battery life. Secondly, does he idle a lot while waiting for passengers? That can explain poor mileage.

Thirdly, is your car sparingly used and not driven for long periods? That could weaken the battery.

If you don't find above things applies to you then you should also check if there is any leakage of current from the battery which should not happen when the car is off (any accessories like dashcam, phone charger or any other reason).

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

Thank you for your help.

The car is usually driven by my wife or me. She prefers we use the Creta over the sedans when we go out together. Driver takes it rarely.

Yes, we do keep the engine idling at least 2 hours every week when we take our son for his classes, at that time the AC is on and the phone is connected.

I'll switch cars for a month and check.

Apart from earlier replies (all valid), please also get your battery charging points checked. If battery is not getting charged properly it can cause issues too.

For fuel efficiency: It's such a subjective topic as it depends on lot of variables - Peak hour driving, Style of driving (pedal to the medal v/s sedate driving style), Load on A/C, etc. Just to give you an example: my 2023 1.5 NA Creta gives avg of around 11 kmpl v/s my friend's 2023 1.0 turbo i20 which gives him about 9.5. He loves to feel the engine and I love to cruise.
Best way to assess fuel efficiency will be to do short 15 kms sedate drive in ideal conditions (not pushing rpm above 2.5k mark, less traffic, etc), and then compare the numbers with normal driving style. If that has no bearing on the efficiency and you still get low numbers, then there maybe things that can be looked at.

Oh boy! If you keep the engine idle for hours then how can you expect a better mileage? I don't think there's anything wrong with the car per se, just your expectation

Re: Hyundai Creta : Official Review

Hello, fellow BHPians!
One of my family members is considering getting an SUV as a replacement for his sedan, he has almost finalized his choices and feels the Creta is a worthy contender.

He is inclined towards the Hyundai Creta SX(O) IVT as he is getting the same at 20.95 lakhs on-road Kerala, and it has most of the features he could ask for and is a serious contender, but with a couple of SUV launches this month, he is confused, about whether this would be the right option, It would be great if fellow Creta owners share their experiences on the model. He is also getting the Creta SX(O) Diesel AT at 22.75 lakhs on-road but doesn't feel the need to spend the extra 1.8 lakhs for a diesel considering his low yearly running. Moreover, he is getting the SX IVT at 19.45 lakhs on-road as well, and the feature differences between the SX and SX(O) IVT don't seem to be too many.

So if we are going for the Creta, is the SX(O) worth the extra 1.5 lakhs over the SX and should we stick with the Petrol CVT or go for the Diesel AT? If not should we skip the Creta altogether and get the Seltos IVT or Seltos Diesel AT at around 2 lakhs discount over current on-road prices or is the facelift Seltos worth waiting for? or should we go a segment higher and get the Compass Petrol DCT (now discontinued but available at a 3 lakh discount)?

Going for a new car in the 25 lakh price bracket opens up a lot of options and we are quite confused, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Let's get the fuel bit sorted. If running is low then diesel is out of question - not only due to economics but BS-6 diesel engines are prone to DPF issue because of low running. Not to mention about the uncertain future of diesel cars.

Choice between SX and SX(O) really boils down whether your friend cares about the extra bells and whistles like ventilated seats, Bose audio, electric seat adjustment and most importantly 2 extra airbags. If budget is not a problem then your friend should go for the SX(O).

Seltos IVT is also a strong contender, specially with the discounts. If your friend is not bothered about missing panaromic sunroof or other feautres vs Creta then it is not a bad choice. Otherwise new seltos is just around the corner and would be tough to ignore vs Creta (it would be costly than the outgoing model but since your friend's budget is 25L,it shouldn't be an issue).

The first instance was when my then 3 year old tapped the engine start stop button while wife was driving and the car just stopped in the middle of the road and refused to start.

The second time was recently in may while the driver tried to move the car to the parking area after dropping us at an event. Had to leave the festivities to attend to the battery guy. Not entirely sure if this is normal life of a battery in this car. Asking this as my Cruze battery usually lasts around 3 years.

The car also gives me a mileage of approx 6 kmpl. Is that normal?
I am not bothered about the cost but the fact that there might be something wrong with the car.

Could you please help me get an idea on what I need to check?

I too have same model and get an average of 6 for Mumbai driving. It goes up with higher RON fuel in my case however drops very fast if I keep car ac on while car is stationary.

Why dont you recommend the best Creta that is out there, AKA the Alcazar with the 1.5 Turbo petrol, same or better features than the regular Creta and a flexible interior with 5/7 seat capability ?If the budget is up to 25L, then the Alcazar Signature is quite within reach as well !

This was an option we were considering initially, but the need for the 6th and/or 7th seat will only crop up occasionally, else it will be just 3 people traveling, so
we decided to check out the Creta instead, maybe I will have to reconsider it!

I think the current version of SX ivt also has 6 air bags. My friend and I both booked Creta. He booked the SX version where as I booked the SX(O) version. His car is almost about to be delivered but I put mine on hold.

The SXO is coming for on road price of Rs 19 lakhs (Kolkata). Where as the SX was coming for around 17.9 lakhs. The difference between the two were quite considerable, specially cause am moving from Grand i10 after 9 years.

The major differences according to me:
  1. Bose Speakers
  2. TPMS Highline
  3. A better, digital cluster compared to SX
  4. Electrically Adjustable Driver seat (though not a big deal for me)
  5. Front Ventilated Seats
  6. Also, I wanted the knight edition as I wanted all black interiors (I got a doggo, easier to maintain). Knight edition is only available in SXO

So if these features are important for your friend, I would recommend spending extra for SXO.

The reason I put my Creta SXO on hold:
  1. Missing 360 camera (available in Alcazar)
  2. Fully digital cluster and blind view assist (again in Alcazar)
  3. New Kia Seltos is coming on the 4th.

I too initially considered Alcazar a lot but I think the 6 seater will be an overkill for me. Hardly 2 people will travel most of the time with a doggo. I considered Alcazar for my doggo only hehe.

But the new Kia Seltos is very tempting and has some amazing features (including the panoramic roof). But i am sure it will be priced around 23-24 on road so super confused if it's worth spending 3-4 lakhs extra compared to creta sxo

Hello.
The only suggestion is to replace them with more powerful LEDs. They have an easy plug in setup so you can switch them with powerful ones. The only downside is Hyundai will void the warranty if you change it aftermarket and the OEMs are expensive. For the same price Hyundai offers 90W setup and you get 120W aftermarket.

Hello Team-BHPians!
Thank you so much for all your inputs. After much contemplation, we have booked the Hyundai Creta SX(O) Diesel MT Black Colour. It cost me 21,30,000 on road. The waiting period has been quoted 3 months . So we have taken a preferred date 19/09/2023 i.e. Ganesh Chaturthi. Hoping to have a hassle free ownership.

You have to wait to get a Creta there! Here in Kerala with the multitude of dealers and fierce competition among them, you can get one readily as long as it is either black or white!, you get a 60k to 70k discount as well. Here in Kerala, the on-road prices are much higher for your said variant still, we get good discounts and the price comes to just 20.80 lakhs for said variant. I think the dealer has quoted you the base price here or have you taken any addons?

Actually they had one readily available but we were a bit short of financials right now and family wanted to get a car during ganpati. I got a 30k discount and it is the final on road price including insurance, extended warrant, RSA, etc.

Same noise from my Alcazar 1.5 DCT delivered on 18th June 2023. Did a round trip from Delhi to Lansdown. Could hear a loud noise once the car went through a pothole. Checked the alloys and tyres for any visible damage, found none.

Even the noise from the center console is getting louder and irritating.

What is Hyundai R&D team up to? The center console noise should have been fixed with the 2023 model.

Will connect with Nimbus Noida this weekend to get this sorted out.
