Design & Exteriors (Hyundai Creta Vs Renault Duster)

Even after the major facelift, the Duster remains almost the same as far as the silhouette is concerned. The good thing is it still holds its butch appeal by doing so, while radiating changes in the form of reshaped headlamps and taillights. It also exudes a fresh look with the modified bumpers, grille and alloys.

Though we all love the Creta for its overall magnitudes and its style, for some reason, it does not seem as fluidic as the Elantra which made us to think that Hyundai has done it on purpose to preserve its SUVish character. The high set sweptback headlamps and hefty front grille further help the stuff. However, there is a need of a seamless design to stand out in the competition.
