The Bollywood actor said that it is important for any car company to connect with customers and this is primarily where Hyundai has succeeded since coming to Indian shores. “The main thing to happen in 22 years is that Indians have trusted Hyundai brand," he said.

The 'King of Romance' also heaped praise on the new-generation Creta. "The new Creta is extremely robust and really sexy, just like me," he said on a lighter note.

Hyundai launched the eagerly-awaited new Creta to a lot of fanfare. The car gets several styling upgrades. Based on the Seltos platform, Creta 2020 gets new head lights with sleek boomerang LEDs on top. The cascading front grille, seen on several newer Hyundai cars, replaces the three-slat grille on the Creta. The matching tail lights look stunning and there is now a light bar running across the width.

A whole new list of features have also been added on the inside and comes with BS 6-compliant 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, as well as a 1.4-litre turbo petrol option.
