OK, where do I start? Every time I have to write an update about the Creta, it takes me an age to finish it. Do you want to know why? It’s because I struggle to find anything negative to say about it. I tell myself that I simply cannot write another glowing paragraph about the Hyundai, but this approach never works, and what I end up with is yet another mini hagiography. This time around, however, I am dead set on pointing out only its demerits, however insignificant they may be. To kick things off, I’m not the biggest fan of its design. This doesn’t have anything to do with a long-term update but bear in mind what I’ve written above. The infotainment screen’s design should have been more modern and sensitive to the touch, and it sometimes refuses to connect to my phone via Bluetooth and/or Android Auto. The seat ventilation on the passenger side has a mind of its own and works intermittently. The battery on the key fob dies out inordinately quickly (and I once got locked out of the car). The action on the gear lever could have been a little smoother. The light grey seats are a bit of an effort to keep clean.
