Hyundai retails the 2020 Creta between Rs 11.73 lakh to Rs 20.75 lakh Ex-Showroom, India.

There will surely be a premium owing to new upgrades that Honda has to offer.
Honda is gearing up to launch the new City on the 15th of July 2020 and with this, it will also retail the current-gen model as well. At the launch, we will also get to know if the current-gen model will see a price rationalisation.
