My Hyundai Creta IVT: 7 likes & 5 dislikes after 2 years & 12000 km

Talking about fuel efficiency, pleasantly surprised to regularly get MID figure of 18-20kmpl on highways and 14-15kmpl in city on petrol.

The New Creta looks were love at first sight and I was lucky to get the car in 4 days flat (a miracle in these times of 1 year waiting). The ownership experience has been wonderful so far. It does not get driven much due to partial work-from-home but that is compensated by the long drives we take. Car is super comfortable, spacious and has almost all the features we need.

Likes:

  • Excellent NVH and silent cabin, a friend commented it felt almost like sitting in an EV.
  • Combo of 1.5L NA engine and IVT make the ride very smooth. Ride quality improved further after doing Wheel Alignment & Balancing at 10,000 km.
  • Fuel efficiency: pleasantly surprised to regularly get MID figure of 18-20kmpl on highways and 14-15kmpl in city on petrol. Was able to stretch it to 20.5kmpl on few occasions.
  • You never feel lack of power needed for quick overtaking. Drive is set to ‘Comfort’ mode 90% of the time (Comfort gives best mileage in 80-95kmph and Eco mode mileage is good at 50-70kmph speeds)
  • The in-built rear sunshades are a blessing, i wonder why they are not a standard in all cars now.
  • Ample space in the cabin to keep knick-knacks, large water bottles plus other stuff. During an extreme situation, we had 6 adults and a child fit in for a full day without complaints.
  • So easy to drive that you wont feel fatigued even after driving for 12 hrs.

Dislikes:

  • Pathetic voice recognition, patchy sim connectivity of Bluelink.
  • Absence of front parking sensors/360 camera is felt quite often. Also missing Passenger side request sensor and illuminated switches.
  • Minor rattles from sun-glass holder (felt-lining could solve this) and boot door.
  • You cannot have turbo-charging and wired android auto at the same time as they use different USB ports.
  • Boot space under the floor around the spare tyre could have been better utilized

Special mention: Service Experience has been fantastic with Safdarjung Hyundai (Gurgaon). They always take good care of the car and are not very pushy about add-ons. Staff is very courteous and are very receptive to feedback and complaints. When i had an air leakage issue from front tyre, they went out of their way to co-ordinate with JK Tyres to get a new tyre under warranty.
