The Hyundai Creta had won 27 coveted awards during the year which included the ICOTY award in 2016. Over 3,70,000 units of the Hyundai Creta have been sold in the Indian market and over 1,40,000 in export markets.
Commenting on this achievement, Vikas Jain, National Sales Head, Hyundai Motor India said, “Hyundai Creta is a convergence of design, performance, safety and technology.
