    I just took delivery of my new Hyundai Creta Diesel Automatic. I have no clue about its in-dash navigation system, about which there is no mention in the Owners’ Manual provided. Can any one tell me which brand is the system and where I can get/download a Users’ Manual or Help?

    I am expecting the delivery of my Hyundai Creta in a week. I am worried that the car might have encountered flooding and may be damaged to some extent.

      Hi Raj,

      You need not worry about the condition of the car, the company won’t deliver a flawed product to its customers to face unnecessary consequences. As a matter of fact, the company had stopped its production during the flood and no new vehicle were produced those days. The existing stock too was kept safely.

      Hi Sanjay

      The dealer won’t ask you for extra money, except for the additional sum if you want to add after market accessories. Adding to it, you need to show your residence proof and banking history (Any Loan, etc.)

      The company can offer you leather seats for sure in any variant, but not the automatic gearbox. You can better get the automatic model and ask the dealer to give leather seats in the same model.

      For that, you’ll have to speak to your nearest dealer. We don’t think you can get the diamond cut on lower variants.
