Answers for this Question
i have taken a test drive i liked the vehicle. Engine is not so refined like Dezire or Hyundai Xcent. but over all pickup is good . i selected this vehicle only because of good ground clearance all good features in XMS Petrol and the good space. It should be value for money. Since volume of cars on road is very less i am in double mind. Other options are XCENT and AMAZE . These vehicles are good for city purpose. i normally travel 3-4 times in a year to konkan region where roads are in bad shape in certain areas and you need good ground clearance . considering all facts i have selected the Tata ZEST. i have used TATA Bolt Diesel version for 1 year and it has excellent performance. I hope i have selected the correct car

    Thank you for showing faith in our services & writing to us.

    Both the options that you've shortlisted are awesome and stack up against each other in certain ways.

    Hyundai Creta Highlights

    The stylish exteriors of the Hyundai Creta boast the menacing SUV looks while still retaining the sophistication of a contemporary offering. Interiors are best-in-class and spacious boot aids the cabin’s practicality.

    Price and Competitors

    The Creta can be had in the price range of Rs 9.29-14.55 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is up against the Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV 500, Renault Duster etc. Click on the below link to get an idea of on-road price and select the city accordingly.

    Renault Captur Highlights

    The principal highlight of Renault Captur is its stylish demeanour which is unlike anything that we have witnessed on Indian roads. Slip inside the cabin and you will be delighted with quality and layout of the interiors. Dual-tone seats have their own charm and the same is true for the sporty Steering Wheel with mounted controls.

    The Renault Captur is up against the likes of Hyundai Creta and Jeep Compass among others. Renault Captur is premium SUV from the French Automaker Renault which is offered in the price range of Rs 9.99-13.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

    Who Wins?
    The Hyundai Creta presents itself as a great option for those looking for an urban SUV/crossover. The smart exterior design, premium interiors, punchy engines and convenient automatic transmission give it an appeal very few of its competitors can match.
    The Hyundai Creta might be a vanilla package, but that doesn’t stop it from being a potent one. It’s got the mix of looks, features and drivability which ensures thousands throng the showrooms.

    The Captur brings some style to a segment of boxy SUVs. If you want to stand out in the crowd or while munching highway miles - the big Renault is worth a dekko!
    Of course, there are hiccups -  it could’ve been tuned for better everyday drivability, and some more space at the back would’ve been good too. But, neither takes away from the fact that underneath the flash, it’s a sensible crossover.

    If you’ve been eyeing a mid-size SUV, and feel like the Creta is a bit too vanilla - the Captur is worth looking at.

    Coming to next query, it is always recommended to get the CNG kit fitted from the authorized service center so that you can avail the warranty services as well. If you get it installed from some other sources, then it may hamper your warranty. On the other hand, please make sure that the CNG kit that you are installing is RTO approved to avoid future troublesome.

    We suggest you to get in touch with the authorized service center to know the nitty-gritty of the fittings as they will be the best people to suggest you the compatible CNG kit for your car.

    Thank you for taking out time to share your thoughts with us.

    Toyota is one the the acclaimed brand in the Indian market which has a strong after-sales service and network.

    Yes, the Toyota Fortuner offers bi-beam LED projector headlamps whereas the high end versions of Toyota Corolla Altis have LED headlamps along with daytime running lights.  

    Headlamps of a car is one of the most important aspects which lighten ahead the way and compromising with it is weighted with the safety of the passengers and the pedestrian on pathway.

    Though, we have not came across such a feedback till now that both the siblings of Toyota doesn't illuminate the way in a widen manner but in case you feel so then we would strongly recommend you to change the eyes of the car with the care of warranty under the shed of authorized service center.
