Yes L298 is better than L293D but I suggest you to avoid any IC based driver circuits. Though some claim to provide high current capabilities, they burn. That’s my personal experience while working with higher power motors. So I highly recommendH bridge with relays as they are simpler.
Hi Shrey Fadia,
Yes, it is capable.
I used the following circuit to drive motors which required 14-15A of current at 12V with Arduino Uno as the controller. But make sure you use thick enough wires, otherwise, they melt or catch fire. I had built my own PCB with thick tracks for this circuit.
