Hyundai Creta Launch

Hyundai has launched its Compact SUV Creta in India. Hyundai wants to strengthen its position in the Indian SUV market. With this launch, Hyundai is directly competitive with Duster, Ford Figo, Avventura & Nissan Terrano.


Hyundai Creta is made up of strong ‘Hive Structure’ body shell which provides sturdiness and stability. The ring shaped frames applied at B-Pillar, C-Pillar and engine bay helps to achieve high body rigidity, improved durability and crash performance. The ring frame structure realizes a significant increase in body stiffness, which contributes to more precise handling while maintaining excellent ride quality.
