Oman Motoring: Explore the city with Hyundai Creta

What is the best way to ride and explore the city comfortably?”, we wondered. And we got the answer while driving the four wheels of Hyundai Creta, a compact crossover that combines elegance with sportiness, based on the Elantra platform. The car is proven to be a popular choice for city lovers.

Creta is derived from the word ‘creative’ the factor well played by the manufacturer, as Hyundai styling is distinctive and eye-catching, and it’s no different with the 2017 Creta. It has prominent chrome frontal grills with a slightly sloppy roofline, feeding the sporty lover a simple dose of satisfaction in terms of design.

The exterior styling of Creta has Hyundai SUV trademark written all over it. It’s a mini Santa Fe that marks a great addition to the brand’s lineup. It looks quite appealing and, edgy too. The new look is sculptured to be a stunner on the road, with curves accenting elegance similar to that of European rivals.

Every part of the exterior looks fantastic, from its signature grill, to its appealing frontal bumper that screams ‘aggressive’, to its well-designed tail-lights. All these features are bound to attract you.

Inside, it is simple yet good-looking. Although the dashboard sports a flat design with a few layered elements, the fact that it stretches out to door panels gives the interior a unique taste, and if you get a premium, you have the luxury of a massive touchscreen with AC vents integrated in it. And, it has a two-toned comfy seats, which kicks the good looks and comfort up a nudge. And when it comes to practicality, the Creta is quite spacious. It could fit a 5’9 tall man without feeling too cramped. This says it all.

The Creta comes packed with some popular features a driver could ask for, and given its price-tag, it’s a major win. Touchscreen infotainment, climate control, GPS, bluetooth, and keyless entry with a start/stop button can be found in the vehicle, among other features.
The performance of the ride is perfect for the city, as it is economical, and it comes with a 1.6-litre four cylinder petrol engine, which is set to attract a great deal of buyers who are looking for a fuel efficient car along with a distinctive exterior and styling.

The handling is as of any Hyundai, it’s easy to drive with light steering wheel, which is the brand’s trademark of some sort. This makes it a great choice for highway cruising as well. Although it would’ve been great if it had cruise control, but it is still a stunning machine with a real youthful character.
