Hyundai Creta waiting period has quickly escalated up to 10 months, depending on the variant and city/town of purchase. Autocar India reports that the petrol manual and diesel variants generally have a waiting period of 4-6 months while customers wanting diesel automatic variant will have to wait for 6-10 months.
Creta started off its proceedings in style with 15,000 bookings on launch day which went on to surpass 23,000 units at the end of July. This is a commendable performance for a premium crossover which retails between INR 8.59 – 13.60 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Creta is the only compact crossover contender to offer an automatic variant (in diesel) and it accounts for over 20% of the bookings.
The car is available in a total of 10 variants with four powertrain combos. The 123 PS 1.6-litre petrol motor is mated to a 6-speed MT, the entry level 90 PS 1.4-litre diesel motor too is paired to a 6-speed MT and the range topping 128 PS 1.6-litre oil burner is available with both 6-speed MT and AT. All the variants are front wheel driven.

Attractive styling, well built interiors and a comprehensive suite of features are the strong selling points of the SUV. Creta has a local content of over 90% and hence ramping up the production to cope up with the demand shouldn’t be a daunting task for Hyundai India. We hope the company doesn’t get itself busy with export operations before sorting out the domestic demand-supply gap.
