Korean auto giant Hyundai Motor has announced that its sales in the first half of the year has grown by nearly five per cent courtesy the success of its flagship SUV Creta.

The 2024 Creta SUV has been Hyundai Motor's best-selling model for past several months. The carmaker introduced the new iteration of the SUV in January this year to renew its rivalry with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Kia Seltos among others. Creta SUV comes at a starting price of 11 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to 2015 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-end version. It is available in both standard and N-Line version with an electric variant expected to be launched in coming years.
