Re: 2024 Hyundai Creta N-Line Review

Congrats on your new ride. Nice black garage you got there.

These 3 (previous) and 4 (current) pod LEDs are pathetic. I see this in the Alcazar. It just scatters everywhere with poor visibility. There's nothing much to do here but try if you switch this to projectors (base model) coupled with HIDs. I know few guys who did this on the previous gen Creta and are pretty happy with the output.

Guess they silently removed this like the 5th alloy wheel. I have this on mine (First gen Creta).

ii) Moving the gear lever to manual mode with a small dab to the right when the gear lever is in D - in this case the vehicle will stick to the manual mode. One has to upshift with a dab upwards and downshift with a downwards dab with the gear lever in that position.
Thank you. But have parted ways with the Verna already. Need to get another sedan sometime in the future.

Moving the gear lever to the right is taking the car into sports mode. Here the gear selected by the paddle is held for a longer time but I felt the car takes over after sometime. Need to play around a bit.

Congrats on your purchase, the car looks fab in black!

I saw the Creta N Line briefly when I went fory annual service. Compared to the regular Creta, there were some things that I absolutely loved.

First, the glorious N Line steering wheel. I don't like the FL Creta wheel all that much, as it appears confused and rather too weird. This one looks sweet, along with the N badge at the bottom. Even the button placement on the arms looks beautiful.

Next, those billeted aluminum pedals. Damn now that's good looking!

Finally, the black theme inside instead of the depressing grey. Even the headliner is in black!

Isn't the power output the same as the regular Creta, though?

Re: 2024 Hyundai Creta N-Line Review

Congratulations on the car. Black is just a stunner.

I am also going ahead with Creta (just worried about the DCT). Since I still have some time, I am waiting for the crash test if Hyundai goes for it.

Any idea how the headlamps compare to the older Creta?

You can put the gearstick into the Sport 'S' mode, and from thereon, control the shifts using the paddle shifters - the moment you will either upshift or downshift, the gearbox will get into the quasi manual mode and will remain there unlike the manual intervention in the Drive 'D' mode which reverts back to the DCT taking over the shifts after a few mins. In the Sport mode, the DCT holds on to the gears and revs to the extent allowed by the ECU for a particular gear. The steering and paddle shifters on the N Lines (i20 to Venue to Creta) are nice to operate, and once you get used to the Sport + Manual mode, would want to use it often, especially in city traffic driving as you will feel better controls over the gears.

Could you let me know the 3D mats dealer details? I've been looking for Ford Fiesta 3D mats for a while, but I haven't found any yet.

You can change thing config from the vehicle settings somewhere. Same for acceleration in cruise control. I was able to in my Seltos X-Line, I believe it should be similar for you.

Freaked me out the first time it accelerated after I changed lane to go around the car in front of me while in cruise control.

What are the negatives in doing this (Sport + Manual), if at all?? like sports mode will affect mileage etc.

Congratulations! I have as well bought this black beast - N10 DCT few days back - my experience is similar to yours and currently satisfied with the performance but yes the headlight's performance is not as per the expectations - otherwise overall it is a fun to drive car IMO.

Loved the overall black & red use - definitely a head turner.

The only real negative I have observed is the material impact on the mileage. In the Sport mode, the ECU holds the revs on or above 2,000 rpm, and the slightest of inputs to the accelerator pedal lunges the car forward.

I have read concerns from folks about the longevity of the DCT gearbox due to prolonged usage of Sport mode, but for me, it is hearsay.

Re: 2024 Hyundai Creta N-Line Review

Apart from my concerns about the dismal safety ratings of most Hyundais and almost all Kias - which is why I wouldnít touch one with a barge pole - I have to ask: what do people expect from an N Line?

The Creta N Line isnít a performance-oriented N variant and isnít meant to be. It still has a good engine. This N Line will surely boost sales for Hyundai, and I think it looks great inside and out (especially in the Titan something and Nardo Grey knockoff paint schemes). Is it better than those Karol Bagh conversion kits? Definitely.

Re: 2024 Hyundai Creta N-Line Review

I think Tech features, sportier looks and CRETA legacy is all that makes N Line stand out from peers, they have definitely improved on the build quality (expecting better safety ratings).
