Infotainment system 

  • The Captur and the Duster RXE models come with a 2-din audio system featuring Bluetooth phone integration and four-speaker setup. The Creta E+ petrol variant, on the other hand, offers a touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth phone integration and built-in 1GB of internal memory among other connectivity options.

Takeaway

The base petrol model of the Captur, RXE, is priced at par with the Creta’s E+, the second petrol variant in its lineup. However, unlike the Creta, it doesn’t look low-spec as it comes with premium features over the Hyundai such as projector headlamps, daytime running LEDs, fatter tyres and auto climate control among others. Even the Duster RXL, which is substantially cheaper than the two, offers more compared to the Creta.

Infotainment system 

  • The Renault Captur RXT petrol has a 7-inch infotainment system with Arkamys sound tune, rear camera support and built-in navigation. There are six speakers in total (four speakers and two tweeters)
  • The Creta SX+ petrol gets a 7-inch unit too which supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink connectivity. The Hyundai Creta is the only compact SUV here to feature these latest smartphone integration techs. With the SX+, the Creta also gets Arkamys sound tune with a six-speaker system (four speakers and two tweeters)
  • The Renault Captur RXS CVT comes with a 7-inch infotainment system with built-in navigation and rear camera support. It is coupled to a four-speaker system 

Takeaway

If you look at the top-spec petrol variants of the Captur and the Creta (manual), the latter is slightly pricier. The prime advantage that the Creta SX+ petrol has over the Captur RXT is the availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration systems. Besides this, the Captur packs more goodies than the equivalent Creta variant. The Hyundai Creta petrol automatic is the most expensive compact SUV here. The top-spec Renault Duster petrol, on the other hand, is substantially cheaper than the rest two and is decently loaded as well with features like Electronic Stability Control, Hill Hold Assist among others.

For the diesel, the Hyundai Creta comes with two engine options, the 1.4-litre and the 1.6-litre, while the Renault Duster’s 1.5-litre diesel motor is available in two states of tune, 85PS and 110PS. The Renault Captur, on the other hand, borrows the diesel engine from the Duster, but only the more powerful 110PS version. We’ve only picked the variants of the Creta with the 1.6-litre engine and the Duster’s 110PS unit. These variants are largely at par with each other, both in terms of pricing and equipment list.

Takeaway

All the three variants are largely at par with each other when it comes to pricing. They are more or less similar when it comes to the equipment list as well. However, the Captur, with goodies like child seat anchors and daytime running LEDs, takes a slight edge compared to the rest two.

Infotainment system 

  • The Renault Captur RXT diesel gets the same 7-inch unit as the RXL variant, but with a rear camera support and built-in navigation 
  • The Creta SX+ diesel gets a 7-inch unit which support Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink connectivity. The Hyundai Creta is the only compact SUV here to feature these latest smartphone integration techs. With the SX+, the Creta also gets Arkamys sound tune with a six-speaker system (four speakers and two tweeters)
  • The Renault Duster RXZ 110PS AMT shares the infotainment system with the RXZ manual variant 

Takeaway

The Hyundai Creta SX+ manual diesel commands a premium of around Rs 34,000 over the Captur RXT diesel. And like its petrol counterpart, the prime advantage remains the availability of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration systems. That said, when the package is considered as a whole, the Captur offers more. The Renault Duster, on the other hand, comes with a two-pedal option (6-speed automated-manual transmission) with almost similar pricing compared the Creta while being considerably cheaper than it.

The Renault Duster is the only compact SUV that offers an AWD (all-wheel-drive) drivetrain option and is more affordable than the other two as well. The dual-tone version of the Renault Captur Platine cost the same Rs 17,000 over the regular model as the Captur RXT.

Infotainment systems 

The Captur Platine edition, the Creta SX(O) and the Duster RXZ AWD borrow the same infotainment units from the RXT, SX+ and RXZ AMT/MT variants, respectively

Takeaway

The top-spec diesel variant of the Captur, the Platine, which is exclusive to India, is noticeably cheaper than that of the Creta. For a premium of around Rs 60,000, the Creta primarily offers curtain airbags along with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration extra over the Renault. The Captur, on the other hand, packs full frontal LED lights – auto headlights, dynamic indicators, fog lamps, cornering lamps – along with premium white quilted leather upholstery and more. Being an AWD (all-wheel-drive) offering, the Renault Duster is the most capable compact SUV compared to the other two. It is the most economical one here as well
