Hyundai has started the production of the next-gen Creta and the car will be launched later today at an official event in New Delhi. It is a day prior to what we were earlier told by the carmaker. Due to the recent outbreak of novel Coronavirus, the manufacturer has preponed the launch of the car and the media fraternity will be invited in batches in order to avoid a large gathering.

Hyundai has been very cautious about the Covid-19, so much so that the manufacturer has recently installed heat sensors at its Chennai-based manufacturing facility after one of its workers tested positive for being contaminated. With the launch, the Hyundai Creta will compete with the likes of Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier, and MG Hector. As of now, the carmaker has received a total of 10,000 bookings for the new Creta. The booking for the car can be made via Hyundai’s official website by paying a sum of Rs 25,000.
The Creta will be introduced in the Indian market in a total of 5 variants, E, EX, S, SX, and SX Plus.
