According to National Geographic, an African Elephant can weigh anywhere between 2.5 to 7 tons. The so-called ‘Superstructure’ of the next-gen Hyundai Creta weighs only 654 lbs, which converts to 297 kg. 74.3% of it is made of high-strength steel, and that makes it strong enough to handle 27,000 lbs, which converts to a whopping 12 tons!

The 2020 Hyundai Creta is available in E, EX, S, SX and SX (O) trims. Trio Beam LED headlamps, Crescent Glow LED DRLs, 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels, Lightning Arch C-pillar, LED rear lights and twin-tip exhaust are some of its salient exterior features.
