The Hyundai Creta, manufactured by the South Korean automotive giant Hyundai Motor India, is undoubtedly the champion of the mid-size SUV segment in the country, holding the title of best-selling mid-size SUV. Introduced in 2015, the Creta has consistently outperformed its competitors, maintaining its top position. Currently in its second generation, the Creta is eagerly anticipated to receive a facelift. While enthusiasts await the new model, many are opting to revamp older models, like the recently showcased Nardo grey Hyundai Creta.
The video of India’s first Nardo grey Hyundai Creta was shared on Autorounders’ YouTube channel. Autorounders, a renowned auto body shop known for its high-quality paint jobs and conversions, worked on a 2016 Hyundai Creta, giving it a facelift and a fresh paint job. The video showcases impressive B-roll footage of the finished car before the shop owner takes viewers through the transformation process.
According to the shop owner, the Hyundai Creta is highly popular, particularly among young buyers. However, the current outgoing model has become quite expensive, making it more practical for people to purchase older models and give them a facelift to resemble the newer versions. The video highlights the technicians disassembling the car, removing dents, applying filling putty, and sanding it for primer application.
Before entering the paint booth, the shop owner explains that changing a car’s color is a complex process involving documentation and RTO approval. In this particular case, the owner of the car has already obtained RTO approval, which requires filling out a form and submitting the original RC to the RTO office, along with a fee of approximately Rs 900. Following the repaint, an inspection by the RTO office results in a new RC with the updated color being delivered to the registered address of the car owner.
Following this the car then goes inside the paint booth and it shown getting a black roof and then the Nardo grey paint job. For those unaware, Nardo grey is one of the most popular colors from the German luxury carmaker Audi. Moving on in the video the car is then shown getting fitted with custom made black and cream colored leather seat covers and interior trim. Also the car can be seen fitted with ambient lighting as well.
