Can Hyundai Creta Win the competition from Kia Seltos ?

Hyundai Creta sales are incredibly good in the August month, thanks to its new model. It rivaled many competitors in the SUV segment and became one of the top selling cars in Aug 2020. But can Creta survive long as the more beautiful and affordable Kia Seltos is giving a tough competition in India.

Maybe it doesn’t matter for Hyundai Motors as Kia Motors is it’s subsidiary. In India Maruti Suzuki commands the car market. The car sales in August reveals us that 7 of the top selling are from Maruti. Creta and Grand i10 are from Hyundai in the list. As there is no other competing model, Hyundai Motors would be happy to see it’s subsidiary Kia Motors Seltos on the top selling list.

The new Hyundai Creta has got very good response from the buyers. It’s revamped looks are the major contribution to increased sales. It posted 96% sales growth compared to same month of the last year.

The new Creta has two petrol models which have 1.4, 1.5 liters engine with 138.08 and 113.4hp respectively. The diesel model Creta is fitted with 1.5 litre engine with 113.4hp producing producing 250 Nm torque.All models are BS 6 Compliant.

For few months Hyundai Creta will remain in the top because of it’s order book. Seltos might overtake it, but it is beneficial in both ways to the parent company.

MG Motor India is planning to launch Creta rival but not until next year. So Creta will definitely survive the competition for some period.
