Planning to buy Hyundai Creta or Venue? Your wait could go up to 8 months
If you are planning to buy a Hyundai car soon, you may have to wait up to eight months to drive home in one of them. According to reports, some of its best-selling models have seen increased demands and the delivery timelines are stretching longer in some cases. The longest one would need to wait is to drive home a new Creta or Venue SUV. The quickest Hyundai car to get out of a showroom is Aura sub-compact sedan.

The new generation Hyundai Venue sub-compact SUV, which was launched last year, has also attracted attention of SUV buyers. Its waiting period is similar to that of the Creta diesel variants. Venue rivals the likes of Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Tata Nexon among others in the segment.
