Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which variant of Renault Duster is better 85 PS or 110 PS power wise?
  • 110 ps taller 6 speed gearbox great on highways and in city too..85 ps is a good option with a less price.110 ps has turbo lag (mind that after second gear at low rpms)if there is no highway use prefer 85 ps
  • As per my personal experience 85 PS is best for city and highway. No turbo log no frequent gear shifting. Further Clutch plate, diesel filter and some other parts of 85 PS is cheap compared to 110 PS.
  • Definitely the 110PS variant is more powerful than the 85PS.Means it will have a better acceleration rate and a little more maximum speed.
Q. Is Renault car maintenance cost higher than Maruti Brezza - Duster?
  • The estimated maintenance cost of Maruti Vitara Brezza for five years is Rs. 18,290 whereas, the same for the Renault Triber is estimated at Rs. 10,170 for five years. For more details, click on the following links: - [Renault Triber Service Cost@https://www.zigwheels.com/newcars/Renault/triber/service-cost
Q. Which is better diesel and patrol in Renault Duster?
  • Manual diesel makes sense 120 and 85 bhp6 gears in 110 version .If you need a petrol go for CVT which makes sense . Also above all your purpose for the car matters most.Diesel can take 100 kms .mixed traffic. Dropping your spouse or child to school within 20 kms to and fro petrol CVT will be the sole choices. Regarding maintenance both carry their substantistive risks!!!
  • The diesel engines of Duster were very reliable.But now they have stopped the production of Diesel versions.Only now available in petrol versions.But they are equally reliable.Hope this helps! Happy driving!
  • Diesel 85bhp will give you more reliability. Mileage in highway will save you some money on fuel expenses. But if it’s daily use diesel is better else go for petrol.
