The biggest launch from the brand this year has undoubtedly been the Venue in May 2019 as it took the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza head-on and managed to outsell it for consecutive months. The next generation Hyundai Xcent and Elite i20 are already in the works but what will create more buzz is the brand new Creta.

Expected to go on sale early next year, the second-gen Creta will have major exterior and interior makeover reminiscing the latest ix25 sold in China.
