The major attraction in this modified Hyundai Creta is the set of massive 33-inch tyres with gold painted wheels
Hyundai Creta has been a tremendous success in the Indian market ever since it broke into the scenes in July 2015. The SUV is an instant hit for the second largest automaker in the country and quickly elevated its status as one of the key sellers within the lineup in the last three years.
The Creta’s appeal to customers is so much that other mainstream as well as upcoming companies are eyeing a sweat spot in the segment. The Creta is not just manufactured for India but also shipped abroad and a comprehensive new iteration with increased premium nature and upgraded exterior with bigger proportions is expected next year.
It is a no stranger to the aftermarket customisation jobs as tuning firms across India have laid their hands on its with good measure. While some have got the bodykits rights, others have taken it to a hardcore level. The modified Creta posted here has its number plate replaced by “VIPMANDEER” wording.
But the most obvious of changes come in the form of a massive set of wheels. The bumper section has undergone modification to accommodate the wider 33-inch tyres that extend well out of the wheel arches. The wheels are 15-inchers with gold finish and we do think a wild graphical visual gimmick and a more prominent roof-mounted lights would make a whole lot of difference.
In any practical sense, the Hyundai Creta is not an awe-inspiring off roader that can take on tough terrains and unpaved surfaces. In its standard form, only two-wheel-drive configuration is offered as the SUV is normally used as an everyday machine. A AWD would come at a premium and honestly unless you’re an adventure enthusiast, you would not approve it.
Hyundai has a slew of SUVs lined up for launch as the subcompact Styx, rivalling against Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon and Ford EcoSport, will be followed by the electrified Kona with 350 km driving range. The Creta and Tucson are expected to get new versions in the coming years targetting customers a little higher than their current asking prices.
