Ladakh Police has inducted the first batch of all-new Hyundai Creta mid-size SUVs. The first pictures of the vehicles have become viral on the Internet. The induction happened last week when two Hyundai Creta SUVs were delivered to the police department.
The new Hyundai Creta will be used by the tourist department of the Ladakh Police. First pictures of the vehicle show the white coloured Creta SUVs wrapped in the police colours. There is Ladakh Police written on the side while the tourist wing is written above that. We are not sure if the vehicle also gets sirens but the strobes are visible on the top of the roof.
While only two Hyundai Cretas were spotted in Ladakh with the police department, more such vehicles are expected to join in the future. We are also not sure about the engine option that the Ladakh Police Department has chosen to use. The alloys and the exterior do indicate that these are the top-spec SX trim of the Creta.
The tourist police put up a friendly face to help the tourists who come and visit the place. There are tourist police departments in almost all the states and union territories in India. Various tourist police handle different jobs. For example, a tourist can take help from tourist police if a local autorickshaw or taxi is asking for a higher than the listed price.
These vehicles will stick only inside the city limits and will not ever do jobs like chasing other vehicles and set-up a barricade. In Dubai, the tourist police own one of the most expensive vehicles in the world.
The Dubai Tourist police own the most expensive vehicles in the world including the Bugatti Veyron, Lamborghini, Bentley and what not. In fact, buying expensive cars became a PR exercise for the Dubai Tourist Police and the cars were even taken off the roads to display at the malls and other areas. Most tourist wings of the police in India do not have any special vehicles. They mostly use the same vehicles as their colleagues in other departments.
2021 Hyundai Creta
The second-generation Creta, which was launched last year after the delay due to the pandemic has become a super successful product for the Korean manufacturer. Hyundai has announced that in one year, they have sold over 1.21 lakh units of the all-new Creta, which is a big number for a car from this segment.
Also, since the Ladakh Police chose the top-end SX trim, interestingly, these are the most in-demand variants. Hyundai India claims that there is a massive demand for the higher-end variants of the car. 51% of customers have chosen the top-end SX and SX(O) variants of the Creta.
The top-end variants are loaded with features like a massive panoramic sunroof, cooled front seats, electronic parking brake and more. The Creta is loaded when it comes to features and that is one of the top reasons for its popularity in the Indian market.
