After winning the SUV of the Year, the new Hyundai Creta fought off competition from major car brands to win the Car of the Year Award.

The Creta features a commanding presence with its edgy design theme and a neatly designed cabin that gets all the necessary goodies you would expect from a premium SUV.

The 128PS 1.6-litre engine is quite a charmer with its linear power delivery while efficiency stands at an impressive 16kmpl.

The Hyundai Creta is sold in Fiji by Carpenters Motors.

Apart from that, the Creta further scores brownie points thanks to the balanced driving characteristics. All in all, the Creta is a complete package.

The 2016 CNBC TV18 OVERDRIVE Awards were judged by a panel of experts on a range of criteria.

This included how well they suit the role, value for the money they demand and also how involving they are to drive.

A vehicle has to put a smile on its pilot’s face, no matter the power or price and that’s definitely one of the criteria in our judging process.

 

ZigWheels Awards

The Hyundai Creta also beat the top cars from each segment for the coveted title of the Car of the Year in the 2015 ZigWheels Awards.

It’s the moment that both petrol heads and car manufacturers look forward to for the entire duration of the year.

Between new segments and revival of the old ones, introduction of some beasts of machines to some frugal designs, from some extravagantly priced cars to extremely fuel efficient ones, the year 2015 witnessed almost everything.

And conquering them all, the Hyundai Creta emerged as the Car of the Year for the 2015 edition of the Times Auto awards powered by ZigWheels.

In the reckoning for the top four-wheeler prize of the year were the best cars across various segments.

And beating them to the prize is Hyundai’s best introduction to the Indian market in 2015.

Hyundai Creta looks quite good, has great interiors, is jammed pack with features and of course has a range of engine and gearbox options that cater to almost every type of buyer out there.

Inside, things are far more premium than they are inside its rivals. Quality materials have been used, and the beige-and-black dashboard looks neat.

It’s got the right toys – sat-nav, Bluetooth, steering controls, a touch screen infotainment system, rear AC vents, reverse camera and all that. It’s got more gizmos than any of its competitors.

The Creta is big on space as well. The front seats are large and comfortable, and six-footers won’t complain if you ask them to take the rear seat.

The boot – 402 litres – is large enough to carry a weekend’s worth of stuff.

Team this up with a highly competitive pricing, and you have all the ingredients for a car that rules the roost.
