Wretched scary car Hyundai Creta: review
As a car enthusiast, I often go to car dealerships. Not so much in order to look after your car for a replacement, but to personally evaluate the new items. On one of my recent visits, the new Hyundai Creta caught my attention.
Why is she? Well, shortly before going to the salon on the Internet, I came across a video that showed this crossover. In the video, he seemed quite attractive to me. And here was the opportunity to see and even touch the object of interest in reality.
Of course, that the previous model was distinguished by its triviality and some roughness of the body wraps. And therefore, when I saw a new car on the screen, I immediately thought that it might well win many fans.
The video clip is edited in such a way that the attention of the viewers is usually concentrated on the details. And this trick only fueled my curiosity – I wanted to look at Creta in general terms. And – voila! She is in front of my eyes.
The face of the "South Korean" is probably the most spectacular part of it. And then, if you take a photo from the bottom point. I think that the “loopholes" of the headlights, and they are quite narrow, are an obvious bust.
There seems to be something in the figure of this instance, but I can’t figure out what it is. However, I personally don’t like it. Moreover, it is difficult for me to call this car an SUV – in appearance it looks more like a hatchback, which is raised more than is usually done.
If you look at the interior from the window, then there are mixed feelings. The chairs look stylish, the same can be said about the not completely round steering wheel, which was inherited from older counterparts.
And when I got behind the wheel, I immediately saw how nondescript the interior is. One gets the impression that the optimization of production costs has touched every interior element. I also want to say about the contours of the plastic – it seems that their development was entrusted to a novice designer, and not an experienced one.
Even the multimedia block is somehow quite mediocre: minimalism is observed both in the buttons and in their design. In general, it smacks of cheap China.
And in order to somehow cheer up a potential buyer, the designers offer him a nice steering wheel, air duct deflectors and a box handle. However, they do not fit into the overall ensemble, which is dominated by the lack of taste of those who had a hand in developing the cabin.
The front-wheel drive cross, although it suits the status of a raised hatchback more, is equipped with a 121-horsepower 1.6-liter engine and a manual transmission. The price tag for this model is 1.2 million conventional units. At a cost, it has competition with Renault Duster. Although, if we compare the “Korean” and “French”, the latter, it seems to me, wins both in terms of functionality and beauty, both in the interior and exterior.
In my opinion, there is no comparison between Seltos, which was released in 2020, and Creta, which appeared with us in 2021. If you have enough money, then it is better to buy Seltos, regardless of what slightly others are asking for it. money. And if we compare Creta with Duster, then it is more expedient to buy a "Frenchman".
Gentlemen-car owners! What impression did the new Creta make on you?
