Thoughts On The 2020 Hyundai Creta India Launch
The Hyundai Creta has long been among the best-selling SUVs in the Indian market. The next-generation model has already seemed to prove this with over 14,000 bookings ahead of launch. Kia Seltos now seems to have a tough competitor for the segment leader crown, which it snatched back in August.
