I am residing to Mumbai and planning to buy new Creta E 2020 , but little but confused in Diesel or Petrol variant. My running is approx 800 km per month as of now, but might be increase after two year to 1800 -2000 km/month. i will drive this car around 7-8 years .The price difference between both variant is 45000 . Kindly suggest what is the future for Diesel car after 7 years in India , is there any major impact on reselling the car. In terms of Service Cost between both as well as Insurance cost , resale value and spare parts. which is best variant for purchasing.

Sir, pls suggest you expert opinion on the above issue.

Greetings !!

You should consider in Creta E Diesel and there are strong reasons in favor
> 1.5 Crdi Diesel Engine of Creta is lot more responsive with superior mid range as against Creta Petrol. When an individual consider in buying heavier car / SUV with raised ground clearance there Torquey Diesel against naturally aspirated Petrol Engine

Have a test drive and can instantly feel in difference

> Although Petrol Engines are refined, but Hyundai offers segment best Diesel Engine with class leading refinement and NVH - similar level of Diesel Engine NVH wont experience in any other segment

> Running Cost yes is next differentiation. While with Petrol prices around Rs 89 per litre - can expect running cost of Rs 8 per Km in city, while in Diesel at 80 per Litre - can expect running cost of Rs 6.25 per km - so estimated saving is close to Rs 1.75 per Km

> Diesel Engines are no more heavily pollued, refer
https://www.mycarhelpline.com/images/easyblog_articles/485/b2ap3_thumbnail_Emission-Outlook.png

The objective of moving towards BS6 was to contain emission levels and thats very much achieved, as can see that

https://www.mycarhelpline.com/images/easyblog_articles/485/b2ap3_thumbnail_PM-Level.png

the pollutants reduced substantially in BS6 espeically in Diesel where almost closest to Petrol
Considering a shift where preferences shifted towards Petrol in recent years - for anyone who experienced fun and torquey nature of Diesel engine with lower running cost makes all sense to go with Diesel car

The way emission levels are reduced no such restriction likely expected from Government on BS6 Compliant Cars

> Yes, insurance premium will be slight higher, but if you consider for 7 years - final cumulative premium difference considering 1.5 Diesel Engine as against 1.5 Petrol engine would not be more than Rs 12000

> In terms of after sales service cost - may check Hyundai Creta Service Cost. However yes
a) Clutch Plate Assembly
b) Battery
c) Alternator

if replaced, would be what priced higher
I foresee once a time clutch plate replacement and battery replacement which cumulative will cost in more than Rs 10,000
However - Creta Diesel as stated is availble with Turbo charger and if thats failed can cost significant rs 30K to 40K . But Turbo wont fail unless abused by owner

To view if your running going to be higher in future then should go with Creta Diesel
However, pls note that there is high waiting period going on base models - 3 month to 4 months as of now in most of the locations and prce may just get a hike in Jan 2021 onwards

Hope should help !!

Hi Sure

Difference in Resale value after 8 years
Resale is based on many factors especially like
> if any government policy comes in to stop diesel cars like in Europe or UK to be specific no Petrol and Diesel car would be on sale from 2030 onwards, only electric car to be on sale. If such a thing comes in like say from 2032 in India then will impact resale

> How is Creta as a brand performs in next few years

Basis present conditions - We dont foresee any difference in resale of Petrol and Diesel after 7 to 8 years

2) Is there any Govt Norms will be implemented after 2-3 years in Diesel cars
Way OEM invested a large sum in upgrading Diesel engine to BS6 - i dont foresee any immediate norm to be implemented in next 2 to 3 years atleast on BS6 cars. Having said same - yes something may come up for BS4 cars

3) Ban on Diesel Car in near future?
To the best of our knowhow - no such ban to be there atleast till next 5 years

4) Price difference in both fuel in near future
Considering fact that all commercial vehicles operate at present on diesel - dont foresee that Diesel will tend expensive against Petrol in next 5 years

5) i read one article , where in they have mentioned that, some particulars parts has to be installed in near future in diesel cars which may costing around 2-3 lacs?
Nothing to come on BS6 Cars

6) if my monthly running continuing 800-1000 km , then which variant has to be opt.
If Creta E Petrol is what considering then basis price difference in between E Petrol and E Diesel with fact about
> Performance difference
> Fuel Efficiency

Creta E Diesel is what super value.

Dear Sir,

1) Why most of the Car Companies were discontinuing the Diesel variant , is there any specific reason. if we talk about the Maruti, they are 76% in Indian Market presence.
2) Most of the people saying that, why you are purchasing the Diesel version of CRETA, we are not frequently driving on daily basis. Now days if we are not driving Diesel Creta 2020 on daily basis, while starting the car or during the servicing is there any effect.
3) I am thinking of color in white or Black, which is best in overall.
4) If we modified the car from after market such as alloy wheels, infotainment, light or ambient light. Is this effect the warranty of car.

regards
Prashant

Hi,

Pls find point wise reply

1) Recently most of the Car Companies in India are discontinuing the Diesel variant after implementation of BS VI norms , is there any specific reason behind it. What are the future plan of Indian AUTO in terms of Diesel variant car


Its not that car companies discontinued diesel engine after bs6 - rather high investment cost on technological changes in terms of 2 level up compatibility for diesel engine and shifting trend towards petrol made some of these OEM to decide and complete drop in there portfolio


2) Due to the strict norms of Indian Government towards the pollution, are they will get effect on upcoming production of Diesel variant in India.

Already shared views on same., However, not government policy but NGT / Supreme court can yes come up with surprise order in future and that cant be predicted.


3) Most of the people views and keep saying that if you are not frequent driving the car , why you are opting for Diesel variant of creta 2020. So driving the BSVI diesel variant not frequently then it would getting effect while starting the car and also during the servicing .

Cars are bought for long terms considering long term usage, its a myth to think that present age refined diesel engine as what used in creta can turn problematic if not used regularly


4)Which is the best color to buy White or Black in overall.

Depends on individual preference but dark shares needs slight more maintenance and are slight more hot in cabin


5) Which are the trick to reduce the cost while buying through Dealers.

Theres a video on YT - Creta keh ke lunga, pls check


while modifying the Car after market such as infotainment, alloy wheels, head and tail lights and ambient light, the warranty of car will effect.

Depends,
> any modification to car original wiring
> using sub standard wiring
> using chinese alloys
> using +2 size alloys
can void warranty

else a clean fitment from brand without touching stock wiring of car and branded alloys if of same size wont impact warranty

Hope should help !!

Dear Sir,

I have booked CRETA 2020 E Diesel variant in the month of October 2020 at Mumbai, At the time of booking Dealer told me that there would be atleast 4-5 month waiting, Recently I have visited to check the status but they are not very sure about the waiting period. Dealer have still not confident that they will deliver the car in stipulated period.

i am thinking that if i purchased the car from Gujrat state and then transfer to Maharashtra RTO, is it workable or its seems to be costlier.In Gujarat two month waiting period.

Pls suggest

Hi,

Although its very much possible, you can buy car in Gujarat on temporary registration and can get it permanently registered in Maharashtra
Can ask dealer to generate invoice with IGST and CGST, IGST is for Inter state GST

However, kind note that
> Your booking in Gujarat would be counted as new booking
> If buying car on finance then may have to check with local bank who is disbursing loan that can they make outstation payment and dealer too in Gujarat that will he allow to hand over papers for self registration.

Hope should help !!
