Hyundai Creta - Smaller Santa Fe.

Creta looks like a smaller version of the Sante Fe and was first launched in China as ix25. In other words, if you like the design of the Sante Fe, you will like Creta too. It falls in the segment of compact SUVs. Yup, another fancy term for marketing. I guess people like it when they know it is big.

Anyways, basic specs below

Engines - 1.6 litre Petrol, 1.4 litre / 1.6 litre Diesel (from Verna)
Mileage - 15 to 17 - Petrol, 19 to 21 - Diesel
Variants - 10
Transmission - 6 Speed Automatic and Manual
Seating capacity - 5
Price - 9 to 12 lacs

Hyundai and Google Android

There is no doubt that Sonata is an exceptional car.  Boasting a stunning design and lots of features it is definitely miles ahead of its predecessors in all aspects. And now, Hyundai becomes the first car maker to offer Google's Android Auto System and exclusively in its Sonata model. Basically, a smartphone inside the car.

Google and Apple compete with each other to offer smartphone services with leading automakers in the world. Apple has signed deals with BMW and Honda to promote its system called CarPlay.
