We take the Hyundai Creta and decide to wander around looking for that perfect shot.
There are times when you yearn to escape the concrete jungle of civilisation and head into the unknown, wander on that path less travelled. The good part about living in Qatar is that such an escape can be a short drive away. And we Xtorkers are constantly looking for an adventure. First of all, we needed an able steed for this drive into unchartered territory. Enter the Hyundai Creta. We were keen to experience what this stylish SUV had to offer. And then we needed a plan. But that was the best part about this trip. There was no plan. Except that we needed a beautiful shot of the Creta, something that hadn’t been captured before. We headed out straight on Doha Expressway and decided to take the exit which caught our fancy the most. As we cruised on the roads, we got more time to acquaint ourselves with the Creta. This SUV has been making waves in the countries that it has been introduced in so far and we could see why. It’s another chic offering from the Hyundai stables. The sleek headlamps along with the threeslat hexagonal grille, and the ‘vertical’ fog lamps give the Creta a very attractive front. The strong shoulder line on the side adds to the character of the SUV. The style quotient continues at the back with the elegant tail lamps. On the inside, the two-tone dashboard, the chunky grab handles and the instrument cluster all work in tandem to add to the style factor. It gives you the feeling of an effortless yet very attractive design language. As the Creta munched up the kilometres, we were thankful for the comfortable seats. We had used the touch-screen infotainment system to connect our phones and the music was playing at full blast. The steering wheel mounted controls meant changing songs didn’t require you to take your hands off. The USB and 12V charging slots in front of the gear stalk was being put to good use – to charge our phones and camera equipment. This focus on convenience features is something that Hyundai is known for.
We have to thank the Creta for accompanying us on this amazing adventure. This Hyundai SUV is perfect for your daily commute to work, or your weekend trips to the park. The high seating position means that you get to see more of what’s around you when you are driving. The light steering and eager acceleration help you zip around the city with effortless ease. The car-like handling character of the Creta ensures that you get the best of both worlds. Add to it the fact that this Hyundai is not afraid to get its feet dirty and you have a very able companion for your impromptu wanderings – as we gladly found out. So get out there, find new adventures and this Hyundai SUV will tag along happily. Get creative with your life. By the way, did you know that Creta is short for creativity?
