New Hyundai Creta gets 55,000 bookings in 4 months

Hyundai Motor India (HMI), which introduced the second-generation Creta SUV in the Indian market in March, is registering strong demand for the diesel powertrain in the new model.

The company is offering the Creta in 1.5-litre petrol, 1.5-litre diesel and a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine options, and says that so far the new BS VI-compliant diesel motor has outpaced the other two when it comes to the market pull.

According to a press statement issued by the Chennai-based OEM, 60 percent of the 55,000 bookings received for the new Creta comprise the diesel fuel option, which is offered with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

And, in a time of social distancing, Hyundai's digital 'Click To Buy' campaign seems to have clicked with consumers.

The company also states that the Creta is the most researched car on its online retail platform with 30 percent buyers enquiring about the SUV and over 76 percent of bookings of the car coming online. Asianet Online
