Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Available with one petrol and two diesel engines.

Hyundai Motors India Limited have revealed the international-spec of the China-only ix25 in Chennai, India, today – dubbed the Hyundai Creta.
