The resulting Hyundai Creta Review, which you can read below, will in our opinion get you just as excited about this outstanding new Hyundai Crossover Vehicle as we are.
The Latest Hyundai Creta at a Glance
Although not as large as the Tucson or Santa Fe, the Creta is an impressive vehicle in its own right. For one, it is surprisingly tall and even boasts a better ground clearance than some of its closest rivals. Overall the Creta offers a bold yet sophisticated look that is enhanced by the three-slated chrome grille, sharp headlamps and LED daytime running lights. From the side, the Creta has a crisp clean look to it and as one makes their way around the vehicle the small rear integrated spoiler is a pleasant surprise. Overall the base and top model Creta is a good looking vehicle and one that will never look out of place when parked next to any one of the top-end SUVs currently sold in South Africa. Size-wise, when compared to the Tucson, the Creta is 205 slightly shorter in length and narrower in width, but this is barely noticeable thanks to some very clever design and layout decisions made by the design team.
Executive Comfort Comes as Standard
PPerfect for long drives with the family or daily trips to the office, the base Hyundai Creta top models are packed full of comfort and safety features that not only make driving fun but also effortless. All of the available model variants come standard with the Executive Level Features. These include (but are by no means limited to) Daytime Running Lights, alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, a reverse camera, and an infotainment system with CarPlay.
A Punchy Performance that Might Surprise Many
With a choice of three engines, namely the 1.5-litre petrol, the 1.5-litre diesel and the 1.4-litre TGDI, there is no shortage of punchy power under the hood. The drive experience created by these engines is comfortable over both long and short-haul drives and is helped by one of the Creta’s strongest assets – its next-generation suspension! This marriage of power, control and drive comfort allows the Creta to hold its own on tar, gravel, and even rough South African backroads.
