The new-gen Hyundai Creta has now become the top-selling car in its segment. It competes with the likes of Nissan Kicks and Kia Seltos.
Hyundai Creta has been quite popular among the local car buyers. The South Korean automaker launched the second-gen Creta in the Indian market a few months back, after showcasing it at the Auto Expo 2020. It rubs shoulders with the likes of Kia Seltos and Nissan Kicks. As compared to the previous model, the all-new Creta looks modern, comes loaded with new features and has a plusher cabin. Moreover, the previous-gen Creta was the best-selling car in its segment until the advent of the Kia Seltos.

The new compact SUV even gathered 14,825 bookings last month. Moreover, the automaker sold around 7,207 units in the same month, and this makes Hyundai Creta India’s top-selling SUV.
