Don't Miss This Ultimate List of The Most Watched Videos Of 2020 On CarDekho
Our reviews, comparisons and detailed explanations were enjoyed by many of you over this difficult year. Here’s what you liked best
The year 2020 gave us some very important and much-awaited launches. SUVs, especially the sub-4m kind, continued to be the centre of focus for most carmakers. If you want to revisit the year 2020 in cars, why not start with this year’s collection of the most-watched CarDekho videos on Youtube. Our list includes reviews, comparisons, variant explainers and much more. Here are the top 15 of our most-watched videos.
1. Tata Nexon EV Battery Drained Review
The shift towards EVs in India has taken a step forward in 2020 and even our most popular video of the year is about an EV. The Tata Nexon EV is currently the best selling EV and a big part of that is because it’s the most affordable long-range option we currently have. Even if you can afford to pay the premium for an EV, range anxiety is the biggest hurdle compared to regular petrol/diesel-powered cars. So we did a real-world test where we drained the entire battery of the Nexon EV, ran it in low power mode and shared the results. This video will help you get an idea of the minimum driving range of the Nexon EV.
2. Hyundai Creta vs Kia Seltos
The biggest rivalry of 2020! With the launch of the new Hyundai Creta, many buyers went into a tizzy. The Creta and the Seltos came with the same set of engines and transmissions with a near-identical feature list, making it quite hard to choose between the two compact SUVs. Check out our detailed comparison between the Seltos and the Creta, both in their turbo-DCT combination. We discuss the cabin space, design, features, engine and gearbox performance, handling and suspension and whatever else you have your doubts about.

In this 22-minute-long video, we have explained every single thing you need to know about the lifestyle SUV that is also more practical than ever before.
4. Kia Sonet vs Hyundai Venue
The Kia Sonet was one of the biggest launches of the year in the hot-selling sub-4-metre SUV segment. Tons of features, three engine options and five transmission options make it a well-rounded package. In this video, we put it against its sibling, the Hyundai Venue. Prior to the Sonet, the Venue was the most feature-rich sub-4-metre SUV. Here, we have compared both the SUVs on the basis of backseat comfort, design, features, performance and handling.

5. Kia Carnival Review
Kia’s second offering for the country was a big, premium MPV that came with three seating configurations. The Carnival is offered in 6-, 7- and 9-seater configurations. Mainly it fits in as a more premium alternative to the Toyota Innova Crysta, one of the most popular MPVs in the country. In this review, we have explained everything about the Carnival. Since we were driving the 7-seater Limousine variant, we also talked about the comfort and space on the second and third row.
6. Honda City vs Hyundai Verna Vs Maruti Ciaz Comparison
SUVs may be dominating the market but sedans have also been part of the action in 2020. Honda launched the fifth generation City and Hyundai launched the facelifted Verna this year. The Ciaz became a petrol-only offering and it is still one of the best value-for-money options in the segment. So, how well do these three fare against each other? When buying a sedan, your focus balances between the comfort of the back seat as well as the fun behind the wheel. Those are some of the points we covered in our detailed comparison review.
7. Jeep Compass Limited Plus Review
The Jeep Compass finally got the option of a diesel automatic this year. It now gets a 9-speed torque converter automatic that is paired with its 170PS 2.0-litre diesel engine. But that gearbox comes at quite a premium. In our review, you can see for yourself if the Compass Limited Plus Diesel AT is worth considering, or is it better to stick with the manual?
