Hyundai Motor launches global sub-compact SUV 'Creta' in India

Hyundai Motor launched the global sub-compact SUV model 'Creta' in India. Creta marks Hyundai Motor's entry in growing sub-compact SUV segment with strong product offering boosting Hyundai Motor's product line up.

Creta offers a combination of power and style with
its robust body structure, superior engine performance and confident ride and handling. Based on Hyundai's evolved 'Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 Design' philosophy, Creta demonstrates all the essential attributes of dynamism, comfort, safety and style.

The global roll-out of this all-new model will start following the launch in India.

Strong Body Structure
Creta is one of the toughest and strongest SUVs in its segment. Creta is designed with strong body shell that denotes high structural strength stability and sturdiness. 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. Creta delivers strong benefits such as:
• High Body rigidity with ring structure design for enhanced structural safety, improved durability, ride & handling and reduced side impact
• Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) & Ultra High Strength Steel (UHSS) for enhanced body endurance, corrosion durability and lighter body for better mileage
• Reinforced roof structure with multiple cross members for enhanced strength
• Improved crash performance with addition of dash cross members. Use of larger diameter weld joints & use of reinforced side members having Tailor Welded Blanks (TWB) on door panels for improved body strength
• Front end modular structure to reduce the maintenance cost

Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 Design
Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy carries forward the highly acclaimed Fluidic design theme in a more refined manner thus lending a modern  and premium touch. Creta design follows a modern premium look, based on Hyundai Motor's evolved design philosophy. An SUV with a unique and innovative form, Creta represents a complete package of style, dynamism and practicality.

The Creta has class-leading NVH performance by the use of enhanced sound absorption materials, advanced engineering design of engine, transmission and body structural parts thus ensuring quiet cabin. The NVH has been well contained to barely perceptible levels with the use of dash insulators, anti-vibration pads, sound deadener coating on floor, optimized engine mounts, tunnel area rigidity and application of dual sealing structure on doors.

Advanced Powertrains
The capabilities of the Creta are driven by a range of refined, powerful and efficient petrol and diesel engines which have been tuned for best performance and high fuel efficiency. The 6-speed manual transmission and the first-in-class 6-speed automatic transmission in diesel offer a blend of high performance & enhanced driving pleasure.
