Just like the rest of the world India has begun to like the SUV’s. Its slowly but surely gaining on the sedan/hatchback market. The market is flooded with choices – ranging from VW Cross Polo, Fiat Avventura, Toyota Etios Cross and Hyundai i20 Active. But these cars came and went almost un-noticed. The market was in look out for the ‘real’ SUVs. Therein lies the success of Ecosport & Duster. Hyundai Creta is a new Entrant to the market – with its Fluidic design – sure has captured the attention of the Indian buyer. The car has become a best seller of sort in its segment – outselling both Ford and Renault variants. In fact – August has been a revelation of sorts for this East Asian Manufacturer - outselling the market leader in – Bolero also!!

Coming back to the product, price wise it has been positioned on the mid - higher end of the segment. The car has been cleverly positioned – its slightly costlier than the likes of Ecosport & Duster – but cheaper than Safari & Scorpio. In terms of the dimensions also, it’s almost slotted again in between bigger than the Ecosport but smaller than Duster & Safari. The looks dept has been taken care quiet well I must say – an almost flat bonnet for better visibility, to clean side profiles & wrap around tail lights the look is complete. From inside too – the fluidic concept you can see quiet easily. The controls are placed nicely. The feel of the switches is nice too. The car is loaded with features like – Aux, Sat-Nav, steering mounted controls, of course there is Bluetooth in the car for ease of use. To add to all this – the view when sitting inside the car is pretty nice – has a commanding view of the roads. This feature of better visibility will attract lots of female buyers too to the car. In terms of safety too – the car comes with 6 airbags (top model only), rear view camera , has a A/T option too (in mid segment). But unfortunately is not coming with the AWD options yet. Maybe you can expect it in the later face-lifted model!

The driving aspect (was able to do for 1.6 diesel only) of the car is nice too – the gear throws are short & crisp. I really enjoyed the refinement of the gear box & the quietness of the 1.6 Diesel. The car feels at home on the tarmac. The gear shifts as mentioned are very nice – only if you are going up the hill or making a quick overtaking will you feel the car being slightly under powered & will have to do a quick down shifting and off you go!

Overall:

This is an excellent product & which will surely do well in India. The Ecosport feels a bit tight, and although price wise one can get into bigger SUVs like the XUV and Safari – both don’t have the refinement of the Creta and the urban customer is more looking at the safety and comfort options rather than – brute power and seating capacity – looks like Hyundai has a winner with Creta.
