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.

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
