Hyundai Creta exports operation have commenced on a full swing as the company increased the production of the immensely popular crossover from 9,000 units last month to 10,000 units starting from this month. The highly successful compact SUV has managed to exceed 70,000 orders in the Indian market in addition to an impressive 3,40,000 enquires.
So far, the car has received 15,770 orders from the international markets. Hyundai India has earlier announced that the global SUV will be exported from India to several international markets. Company says that the made-in-India Creta has received overwhelming response from Latin America (Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru & Panama), Middle East (Oman, UAE, Saudi) and Africa (Egypt, Morocco & Nigeria). The crossover will be shipped to new markets soon. The export-spec models are powered by the 1.6-litre petrol engine which is mated either to a manual or an automatic transmission.
An attractive styling based on the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, good quality interiors, top-notch safety equipment and strong petrol and diesel engines with both manual and automatic transmission options have helped the Creta gain acceptance in the value conscious Indian market though it is priced at a premium compared to the Renault Duster.
