Hyundai Motor India kicked off 2024 with the launch of the Creta facelift. The popular mid-size SUV has already hit a milestone with over 51,000 bookings in just one month of launching. One of the main rivals of the 2024 Creta is the Honda Elevate. Here is a quick comparison between the two mid-size SUVs.
Hyundai has made some much-needed changes to the design of the Creta. Yes, the previous version did sell in good numbers but the design was a bit polarizing. The curvy lines are now replaced by straight lines. The overall profile is also now squared-off which has helped in improving the road presence of the Creta.

Then there is the Elevate, which has a more squared-off design than the Creta with a huge imposing grille in the front and a rectangular headlamp setup. However, the road presence of the Elevate is not as strong as the Creta mainly because it is smaller in length.
