    The 2019 Renault Duster facelift has been launched with cosmetic changes and feature updates to make a stronger case against cars like the Hyundai Creta and Nissan Kicks. We compare the 2019 Duster’s RxS variant, which is priced at Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom), against Creta’s base diesel E+ variant, which costs as much as the Duster RxS, to find out buying which of these two compact SUVs would make more sense.

    Take into account specifications of these two compact SUVs, and the 2019 Duster turns out to be the bigger car in every dimension, including its wheelbase. A larger wheelbase is usually a sign of more cabin space, so there is a fair chance that the 2019 Duster will be more spacious than the Creta.

    However, shift focus towards the engine, and you’ll notice that the Creta is the more powerful car of the two. It is also the more torquey and has a sixth cog in its transmission, which might make it a more effortless cruiser than the 2019 Duster’s that comes paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. What is worth noting is that both these SUVs come with a more powerful diesel engine as well.

    Creta and Duster unique features

     

    Which SUV offers more value for money?

     

    The two major misses on the Creta include an infotainment system and a rear defogger. An infotainment system can now be considered more of a need than luxury at this price, and one is expected to get it fitted post purchase if it doesn’t come with the car. Defogger can be considered as a safety feature, as it improves rear vision in winters or rains.

    The availability of these two features on the 2019 Duster over the Creta, and some more, make the Duster our preferred choice between these two cars. That said, as a buyer you would miss height-adjustable driver’s seat, front armrest and rear AC vents on the 2019 Duster. These features are on offer on the Creta’s base diesel variant.
