Hyundai Motor India Ltd today announced the name of its new SUV: ‘CRETA’. The global roll-out of this new model will start in the second half of 2015 in India, followed soon after with sales in world markets.
“Hyundai Creta” will be an influential global model for the Hyundai Motor brand in one of the fastest-growing vehicle segments, helping the company to reach out to many more consumers in new and established international markets.
Consistent with the core concepts underpinning Hyundai Motor’s Modern Premium brand direction – SIMPLE, CREATIVE, CARING – the ‘Creta’ name is simple and easy to remember. Pronunciation of Creta evokes welcome similarities with the term ‘creative’. The Creta name will be used for all the global markets.
