      That's a nice looking vehicle..congrats!!

      First congrats buddy. Even I thought to get creta once. The only problem was diesel was beyond my budget and petrol, I did not hear much good reviews. But please let me know your feedback as well on petrol since you own one now. Might be i still have a chance to cancel my booking and opt for the creta petrol.

      Don't do that ! Creta is overpriced and not worth it.

      Delivery with a Plot Twist.

      So, Creta SX+ Petrol Anniversary Editon was booked on 3rd August with a waiting period of approx 15 days at Republic Hyundai, Ranchi. Meanwhile, my Dad and Elder Brother test drove both the Petrol and Diesel variants and loved the 1.6 CRDI Engine. They didn't liked the Petrol and insisted I change the booking to Diesel. Practically, it makes no sense to spend 1.55 lacs more on an already overpriced car and with an intended low run. We had a quite long discussion about it but Dad was adamant for the Diesel and told me to change the booking.

      So the booking was changed to SX+ Diesel Anniversary Edition. The very next day, the news about the price hike came. I confirmed it with my SA and he told me that Creta will have a price hike of Rs.15000, 16th August onwards. He also told me about the rumours on Jharkhand RTO hiking the Road Tax from 3% to 7% anytime this month. Which meant I would have to ensure I make the purchase before 16th August or even before the Road Tax hike.
      My SA advised and offered me to go for SX Option Pack variant which he had in stock. The car was Polar White colour and June 2016 manufactured. Again, I would have to shell out another 70k extra for SX(O) variant over the Anniversary Edition(Rs.14,63,854 over Rs.13,94,620, respectively).

      70k extra over the Anniversary Edition and I'll get :

      - 6 Airbags
      - Leather Seats
      - TCS with EBD
      - Supervision Cluster with Parking Sensor Display

      We decided and made up our minds to go with SX(O) that was available with the dealer in stock. It made no sense to wait for the Anniversary Edition to arrive, pay extra 15k after the price hike and may be even pay extra if there was a hike in Road Tax.

      Verna had to be sold or exchanged in Ranchi so I drove 400 Kms from Nagpur(Maharashtra) to Bilaspur(Chhattisgarh) then another 430kms to Ranchi(Jharkhand). Reached Ranchi on 10th August. Got a quote of Rs.2,00,000 exchange value for my 8 year old trusted Verna. The dealer was adamant and stone cold on the offered price. I was seriously put off and ****ed on the dealer's attitude. I had literally spent a lot of passion and money in upkeep and maintenance of this car. I decided to give it a shot selling the car through online advertisement.

      I took the delivery on 11th August. Arranged Insurance and RTO myself through trusted agents, Zero Dep Policy for Rs.32045 from Oriental India against Rs.42012+10395(add-on) offered from Dealer and Rs.48,700 for Registration against Rs.49,281 offered from Dealer. I paid only the Ex-showroom price plus 1% TCS to the Dealer. I saved quite a lot on Insurance. There was a marginal saving on the Registration Costs but the RTO agent processed fast and arranged the RC Card in one day! Nothing was offered as freebie from the Dealer, I had to haggle for Mudflaps worth Rs.490.

      Petrol is nice for sedate driving.. mostly meant for City usage. Its not punchy and torquey as Honda VTEC, but its not that bad. Engine is very refined and super silent, free revving although you do have to work hard on gear ratios for overtakes or highway usage.

      I will definitely recommend it if you are a sedate driver. For a FTD Petrol package, go for Honda.
