In a period of 8 months, Hyundai Creta has managed to garner more than 1,00,000 bookings. Launched in 2015, the Creta also managed to redefine the compact SUV segment. The Creta has monthly sales of about 7,000 units.
Proud recipient of about 26 awards, the compact SUV is available in both petrol (1.6-liter) and diesel options (1.4- and 1.6-liter units). And while AWD is not available on the vehicle, it boasts an optional automatic gearbox on the more powerful diesel engine.
More than 5 lakh enquiries were made for the Creta, and of total bookings, 56,000 units are said to be delivered already. The waiting period has been one concern, but the company also announced that the production will be increased by 30 per cent to 13,000 units every month. Out of the said 13k units, 10,000 will be made for the Indian market.
