Hyundai Creta User Reviews


Poor riding experience

Guys, I had a horrible experience with the Hyundai Creta vehicle. Actually I have purchased the vehicle just two weeks back and it is my third Hyundai car. Compared to the previous cars, Creta gives me a worst experience. At the beginning of the purchase itself, it started giving problems. The front bumper was not fitted properly and I returned the vehicle to the dealer itself and again waited for more than 20 days to rectify the problems. After getting the vehicle also, i have faced lot of problems. I was very much angered and shouted at the dealer. Then I have decided not to go for Hyundai products. Friends be alert while purchasing the car.


Hyundai Creta - Looking great

My wish is to purchase a new Hyundai Creta as soon as possible. Actually it looks very stunning and resembling the appearance of Santa Fe but it has lot of exciting features. At my first sight itself, I love the car very much. The car has nice insulation and the noise does not filters inside the car. It has large spacious cabin in which all the family members could easily be seated without any disturbance. My choice is Hyundai Creta at any time.


Little Pricey - Creta

I have a Hyundai Creta vehicle which looks very elegant and it resembles like Santa Fe. The car is very comfortable for both long and short journeys. Talking about the engine performance and fuel efficiency, Hyundai Creta performs its duty in an excellent manner. It has an amazing interior features but it needs to concentrate on turning radius and viewing angle of the driver since it blocks the side view. Finally, Hyundai Creta makes me pleasant to ride the car but the price is little bit expensive.
