|Models||Minimum Price (ex-showroom)||Maximum Price (ex-showroom)|
|Renault Captur||9.99 Lakh||13.88 Lakh|
|Hyundai Creta||8.92 Lakh||14 Lakh|
The Captur finds itself slotted above the Duster in its manufacturer’s product portfolio.

The top-end model costs Rs 13.88 lakh, which makes it somewhat cheaper than the fully-loaded Creta. While the Captur will demand a higher starting price, it might still be able to leave a good impression on most new car buyers by offering a fresher design, more features, and an overall more premium feel.

|Specs||Renault Captur||Hyundai Creta|
|Engine||1.5-litre H4K Petrol; 1.5-litre K9K Diesel||1.6-litre Petrol; 1.4-litre Diesel; 1.6-litre Diesel|
|Power||105 BHP; 108 BHP||121 BHP; 89 BHP; 126 BHP|

|Transmission||5-speed MT, 6-speed MT||6 Speed Manual; 6 Speed Automatic|
In terms of specifications, the Creta will enjoy an upper hand, at least on the paper. While the Korean SUV offers as many as three engine options, the new French SUV offers 2 motors. For the Captur, the engines come from the Duster, which means even the specs remain largely the same. As for the Creta, it offers two Diesel and one Petrol engine. If you compare only the petrol engines, the Creta enjoys a clear advantage. Its 1.6-litre engine offers more power and torque than the 1.5-litre engine of the Captur. On the other hand, the 1.5-litre Diesel engine of the Kaptur, nay, the Captur, is more powerful than the 1.4-litre Diesel engine of the Hyundai SUV here. However, the latter’s 1.6-litre Diesel engine reigns supreme.

Renault Captur vs Hyundai Creta Mileage
|Model||Renault Captur||Hyundai Creta|
|Petrol Mileage||15 KMPL||15.3 KMPL|
|Diesel Mileage||20 KMPL||21.4 KMPL|
As the motors for the new Renault SUV here come from the Duster, we have a fair idea of its mileage. We expect the maximum average mileage from the petrol model to be roughly 15 KMPL and from the Diesel, model to be around 20 KMPL. In comparison, the 1.6-litre Petrol variant of the Hyundai SUV here returns a claimed mileage of 15.3 KMPL. The 1.4-litre Diesel offers up to 21.4 KMPL. Honestly, the real world mileage figures will be almost the same. Hence, there is no clear winner of the fuel economy comparison.
Renault Captur vs Hyundai Creta Dimensions
|Dimensions||Renault Captur||Hyundai Creta|
|Length||4,333 mm||4,270 mm|
|Width||1,813 mm||1,780 mm|
|Height||1,613 mm||1,630 mm|
|Wheelbase||2,674 mm||2,590 mm|
As is clearly evident from the comparison table above, the Captur is larger than the Creta. That said, the Creta is actually slightly taller and even offers 13-litres of additional boot space. But overall, it is the Captur that triumphs if you compare the dimensions of these two models.
Of the two cabins, it is actually the Captur’s that feels roomier. A part of this can also be attributed to the lighter colour tones used for the interior panels. Both the SUVs can carry five occupants in considerable comfort. However, between the two, it’s the new Renault SUV that feels airier and hence, more spacious.

|Electric Folding ORVMs||Yes||Yes|
|Rear AC Vents||Yes||Yes|

The Captur will also offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay along with other premium bits like a multi-function steering wheel and leather upholstery. Other highlights will include keyless entry with start/stop button, automatic climate control, auto headlamps, rear wash/wipe, and electric folding rear view mirrors.
Even the Creta will offer all of these features on the top-end trims. Both the cars offer a flexible seating arrangement through 60:40 split and folding rear seats. However, none of the cars here offer a sunroof. While not a deal breaker, Indian car buyers seem to have warmed up to the idea of having this feature. While of questionable practicality in a hot country like others, sunroofs do enhance the aesthetics a fair bit.

Renault Captur vs Hyundai Creta Exterior & Interior Comparison
Well, both these models qualify to be called small SUVs and are strict five-seaters. However, there’s still a lot of difference in the way they look. While the Creta gets typically Korean looks with really flamboyant styling elements, the Captur is all about sleekness and European flair. Both these models have a daunting stance. However, thanks to larger dimensions, the Captur enjoys more street presence. Both the models come with extra styling bits like stylish alloys, DRLs, and roof-rails. Also, both the cars offer dual-tone paint options. However, like we said, in spite of all the similarities, they look really different from each other.
The same can be said for the interior. While the Captur offers cleaner surfaces and clean look, the Creta’s cabin looks more flamboyant. Both the SUVs will offer similar levels of equipment. Hence, there will be little to compare when it comes features being offered. Both the SUVs are strict five-seaters. However, owing to larger dimensions, the Captur will offer slightly more cabin space. That said, the Creta gets to enjoy a slightly larger boot space (387-litres vs 400-litres).
Overall, it’s a matter of personal choice, really. Both the SUVs look handsome and have a high street presence. You can go for the Captur if you’re looking for something sleek and easy on the eye. The Creta is all about flamboyance. So, what do you think of our Renault Captur vs Hyundai Creta comparison? Do you want us to compare any other parameter?
