The updated Creta ticks all the right boxes on paper but how good is it when it comes to real world performance? We pit it against its French rival to find out

The Renault Captur and the Hyundai Creta compact SUVs were closely matched in terms of features until the latter received a facelift in May 2018. But when it comes to the engine and transmission, the Creta facelift remains unchanged. Now, the two aren’t really very close in terms of on-paper numbers, but the real world test figures might throw a few surprises. So, let’s compare the the top-spec Creta with the 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine with the Renault Captur powered by the 1.5-litre K9K unit.

Specifications and tested fuel efficiency

 

Hyundai Creta 2018

Renault Captur

Engine

1582cc, 4-cylinder

1461cc, 4-cylinder

Power

128PS@4000rpm

110PS@3850rpm

Torque

265Nm@1500-3000rpm

240Nm@1750rpm

Transmission

Fuel Efficiency as tested (City/highway)

13.99kmpl/21.84kmpl

15.50 kmpl/21.1kmpl

The specifications reveal that the Creta is the powerful and torquier than the Captur by 18PS and 25Nm, respectively. But it drops back on the city fuel efficiency by a small margin. On to the acceleration numbers then.

Reanult Captur

Acceleration and Roll-Ons

 

0-100kmph

30-80kmph (3rd gear)

40-100kmph (4th gear)

Hyundai Creta

10.83s

7.93s

13.58s

Renault Captur

13.24s

7.77s

11.56s

Difference

2.41s (Captur slower)

0.16s (Creta slower)

2.02s (Creta slower)

The Creta’s bigger engine delivers more power compared to the Captur’s 1.5-litre unit and it’s faster off the line too, reaching a 100kmph from standstill in under 11s. But when it comes to in-gear acceleration, it’s the Captur that shines. While being pushed from 40kmph to 100kmph in fourth gear, a situation that you’d generally encounter on a highway run, the Captur comes out stronger leaving the Creta behind by a considerable margin of 2 seconds. It’s even quicker while picking up speed from 30kmph in the third gear too. Also Read: Hyundai Offers In June

Braking

 

100-0kmph

80-0kmph

Hyundai Creta

43.43m

26.75m

Renault Captur

41.67m

26.26m

Both the Hyundai Creta and the Renault Captur get disc brakes up front and drums at the rear. But it's again the Captur that delivers a knockout blow to the Creta with a shorter stopping distance. The difference in stopping distance while braking from 100kmph to a dead stop is just 1.76 metre. However, that might just be enough to avoid a collision.

    Captur is more stylish and performance-driven contender of Creta!

      Renault Captur was introduced in November'17 so we should not expect any revamped version of it any time soon.
