It looks like they're working off the same exact transfer used for the Criterion set, but I'm guessing they did the color timing from scratch. Generally the Criterion disc went for timing that is a touch cooler, and on that last exterior shot, they went for a dark, overcast March look whereas the StudioCanal disc went for a sunnier sky. Also, one of the close-ups looks like it was blown up a touch for the StudioCanal set - perhaps to stabilize image? Regardless, the level of detail is nearly identical, it's mainly the color timing choices that are different - it may just be a matter of taste as to which is better.

Cinematographer Pierre Lhomme was involved with the StudioCanal disc.

From Criterion's booklet
Supervised by director of photography Pierre Lhomme, this high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from the original 35mm camera negative, restored by Studio Canal. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisor: Pierre Lhomme.
Telecine colorist: Raymond Terrentin/Eclair, Paris
the StudioCanal release looks to have that yellow push we all know and love.

Again, I wonder if that's just a bad encode but from the same master Criterion used (a la the yellow in Criterion's Shoah. A bunch of SC releases from that era have really bad encodes/DNR/transfers (The Graduate, Contempt, The Trial, the original The Third Man).
