Author's Take

Hyundai Creta is one of the best selling compact SUV in the country. It has a huge following in our market. However, the festive season is about to start and at such a time, the price increase is a bit awkward step. It is important to note that the prices of all the trims except the EX variant, have increased marginally and it will not have a significant impact on Creta's sales performance.
