Hyundai Creta crash tested, awarded 4 stars out of 5

Hyundai Creta Crash Test

Hyundai Creta has become one of the top selling SUVs in the country ever since it was launched in July 2015.

Launched in China as the Hyundai ix25, the compact SUV made India debut earlier this year as Hyundai Creta. With over 70,000 bookings, Hyundai Creta is not only one of the best selling SUV on offer in India, but it has also become the most successful new car launched in 2015 in India with over 36,000 units delivered in just five months.

Apart from selling the Creta in India, Hyundai also exports the same to many countries, including Latin America. Latin NCAp recently crash tested the India-made Creta and the results came out impressive. For adult occupancy, Hyundai Creta scored 15.57 points out of 17, while in child occupancy it scored 29.87 out of 49. This means Hyundai Creta scored 4 star out of five for adult occupancy, and three star out of five for child occupancy.

Though launched just a few months ago, Hyundai has already announced two price hikes for the new Creta. In India, Hyundai Creta price ranges from INR 8.8 lakh to INR 14.2 lakh.

Speaking about the crash test result, it was an entry level variant of Creta which was crash tested – with only front dual airbags and ABS. This proves that structurally the Creta is a strong car.

Hyundai Creta is offered in a range of two diesel and one petrol engine option, which are further divided into numerous trims as per features on offer. The top of the line Hyundai Creta gets 6 airbags, ABS, EBD, brake assist, and ESP as safety features.

    Good. But wait, was it the car for Indian market they tested? Because, we all know the difference in the quality of the cars meant for Indian market vs abroad!!

    • We have sent a mail to Hyundai India asking if the Creta sold in India and the one exported to Latin American markets is of same quality or not. Once they reply, we will update the post.
