Hyundai Motor has already announced that its commendable Hyundai Creta SUV has been sold for over 5 Lakh units worldwide since the first dawn.

As the first B-SUV in the domestic market, the handsome-looking Hyundai Creta received a mid-cycle update in May of 2018, marking an aggressive redefinition of the prominent utility vehicle. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the Creta is growing substantially in the popularity with over 3,70,000 units sold in India only as well as 1,40,000 units in export markets that finally attributes to 5 Lakh cumulative sale milestone in the global scale in around 43 months. In India, the latest-gen Hyundai Creta is currently taking the second spot in the sales chart after the leading Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza which has marked its 4 Lakh sale benchmark recently as well.
