The festive season is just around the corner and the car-makers in India are rolling up their sleeves to offer the best services to their customers. While there are quite a few new models in the offing for the festive season, the car-maker are also working to bring down the waiting period of their current model to ensure speedy delivery.
South Korean auto-major Hyundai is also working to reduce the waiting period of its popular models like the Creta, Elite i20 and the new Elantra, reports ET Auto. Currently, Hyundai's Creta SUV and Elite i20 have a waiting period of about 8 weeks in India. The company's recently launched Elantra also has a waiting period of up to eight weeks in India.
Creta is offered in both petrol and diesel-engine options. The 1.6-litre VTVT petrol engine churns out 121bhp and 151Nm of torque, while the 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine develops 126bhp and 259Nm of torque. Both the engines are available with either six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
