Thoughts About The Next-Gen Hyundai Creta (ix25)

The Hyundai Creta was first launched in 2015 and has registered good sales numbers with over 5 lakh units of the SUV in India. However, with the newly launched feature-rich rivals, sales for Creta has been tough. The company looks to change this, with the launch of next-gen Creta. We hope the new design language of the next-gen SUV would appeal to the Indian market.
