The soon-to-be-launched Hyundai Creta will now come with the company's Blue Link connected car technology. Slated to be launched on March 17, the second-gen Creta will be the third Hyundai car to get the Blue Link system, after the Venue and Elantra facelift. And while the other two only got up to 34 connectivity features, the Creta will come with over 50 connectivity features. Furthermore, in addition to the natural language-based voice recognition programme, and Smartwatch integrated Blue Link application, the system now also comes with the 'Hello Blue Link' - a wake-up word for activating in-car controls with a voice command.
