The 2024 Hyundai Creta has been finally launched in India.
The new Creta gets a completely revamped front profile. The front grille has donned a new design in line with the other models of the brand, while it has become bigger than before.

Moving to the rear profile, the SUV sports a revamped look as well. The sculpted tailgate features a sleek LED bar connecting the boxy looking LED taillights. This is a design philosophy almost every modern car is adopting and new Hyundai Creta is no different than them.

The popularity of Hyundai Creta has been unchallenged since 2015 when the company's first SUV for the Indian car market was launched. The mid-size segment was still small and dominated by Renault Duster but the entry of Creta changed various dynamics in various ways. And while the SUV segment has now seen several sub-segments, Creta remains a formidable player. Hyundai on Monday announced that the Creta mid-size SUV has now breached the one million - or 10 lakh - cumulative sales milestone.

Hyundai highlights that over the course of the past eight years, it has sold one Creta unit every five minutes. And while that is an impressive piece of statistic, what is equally impressive is that the model has managed to sell like hotcakes despite the entry of newer players with newer technologies, including hybrids. The Creta competes against the likes of Kia Seltos, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Tata Harrier, Mahindra Scorpio-N, Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, among others. But despite this long list of rivals - many of whom are worthy enough to be popular, Creta appears to be playing in a league of its own.

One key factor for Creta's sustained success may be its timely updates. First launched in 2015, Creta has been updated with facelift versions as well as with feature additions. The second-generation model was launched in 2020 with updates to the styling on the outside. The latest facelift also sports numerous design updates - both on the outside as well as in the cabin - and now comes with ADAS technology. The company says that since its launch last month, it has garnered 60,000 bookings. “We are extremely grateful for the love and trust our customers have shown for Creta. As frontrunners in the introduction of revolutionary technologies, we shall continue to establish new milestones and redefine benchmarks across segments in the industry," said Tarun Garg, COO at Hyundai Motor India Limited.
