The Renault Captur is all set to debut in India on 6th November and is all set ti spice up the competition with Hyundai Creta and 2017 Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Each of the three have taken very different approaches to the crossover segment. For one the S-Cross which has recently shed its station wagon-ish design for a more butch chrome plated facade, the Creta take the more tilts toward the Soft-SUV school of philosophy. The Captur based on the Duster’s platform gets a low crossover design. Hyundai Creta has been the company’s top-selling SUV.
The S-Cross facelift, which gets a mid-cycle rework has gotten more rounded and has a bigger front face that takes away from the slim profile it had before. The S-Cross facelift,will carry forward the dash from previous generations. This includes a centre touch screen with Maruti’s own UI, although it would be exciting the S-Cross was to get Android Auto as well. The 1.3 litre engine with the SHVS technology from the Ciaz will be maintained and makes 90 hp.
The Renault Captur has both the longest wheelbase and overall length and the widest of the three, suggesting that is likely to be roomiest on the inside as well. The Captur also has the largest boot of the three with a generous 437-litre boot,The Renault Captur gets the Duster sourced 1.5-litre H4K petrol and 1.5-litre K9K diesel motors.
The Creta might be the most dated of the three but it still is a very strong competitor. The Creta does have the best interiors and gets a 7-inch touchscreen with Google Android Auto and Apple Car Play.The Hyundai Creta’s engine array strategy sets it apart with two diesel motors and a petrol motor(1.4 litre Diesel, 1.6 litre Diesel and a 1.6-litre petrol) on offer.
In terms of price the Hyundai Creta retails between 8.92- 14.00 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), we expect the S-Cross will be the most reasonably priced of the three considering the loss of the more expensive 1.6-litre diesel. The S-Cross is likely to be priced between 7-10 lakhs (more if it inherits the Ciaz’s SHVS mild hybrid technology), the Captur is likely to match the Creta in terms of price launching next month between an expected range of 9-14 lakh
