2016 Hyundai Creta | Design Commentary

Hyundai’s first-ever compact SUV is here in India. Named as
‘Creta’
, this baby SUV seems to be big hit in terms of its reception in the
Indian market even before its launch. We had two best cars on similar lines before
– the Santa Fe and Elite i20 – both were outright hits in terms of their design
and styling. How impressing is the new Creta in this regard, to join the league
of amazing Hyundais with Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy? The Creta is
amazingly easy on the eye and good-looking among its segment rivals. Yet, the
design is feeble for a car of this sort and has been highly compromised for
cost.

Dhiyanesh is equally crazy about driving cars and writing about them. This guy loves everything with a steering wheel, so, at someday if self-driving cars take up all driving, he is sure to go nuts! He likes sedans of 90s era, esp W140 S-Class and R34 Skyline GT. Apart from usual motoring stuffs, he maintains a strong appetite for sociological perspectives on cars, their historical and cultural footprints. He owns a 1999 Fiat Siena passionately, and drives a Ford Fiesta.
