Hyundai has commenced the bookings for the upcoming compact SUV Hyundai Creta in India.
The booking amount for the Hyundai Creta is between Rs. 40,000 – Rs. 50,000, depending on the region. The customers can book the upcoming Creta across all Hyundai showrooms in the country.
Ahead of its launch on 21st July 2015, the Korean car manufacturer has unveiled the first official design renderings of the SUV. The Hyundai Creta sports a premium look on the outside and the overall design is based on the company’s famous design philosophy ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ (FS2.0).
The Hyundai Creta will be based on the Hyundai i20’s platform and will share the same components as that of the hatch. The Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy will be carried throughout the exteriors and the interiors of the compact SUV. Hyundai will offer the Creta with features like a reinforced powerful figure, singular hexagonal radiator grille, sleek profile and a stable stance that complements the overall appearance of the SUV.
Inside the cabin, the compact SUV will come loaded with features such as ABS, EBD, Airbags, daytime running lamps, cornering lamps, 1GB infotainment system, etc. The Creta will come with the same engine options as that of the Hyundai Verna sedan in the country. Earlier, the Korean car giant also announced that the upcoming Creta will have 90 per cent of localisation. This will help the auto marque to cut the cost of the upcoming SUV. It is said that after the launch of the Creta, the company will make India a global hub and will be exporting the SUV across the world.
The Hyundai Creta is expected to be priced between Rs. 8 lakh to 12 lakh, exshowroom. It will rub its shoulders with the likes of Ford EcoSport, Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano and the upcoming Maruti Suzuki SCross in the segment.
