Renault Duster Latest Updates

Renault India’s much-awaited facelift of the Renault Duster has been spotted testing ahead of its upcoming launch in India. The Duster facelift has been spotted completely undisguised in a new blue shade at the Zoji La mountain pass on the Srinagar-Leh highway.

Changes include a redesigned front fascia, reprofiled bonnet, reworked front bumpers and the addition of LED DRLs and projector headlamps. The front grille also gets a makeover with more chrome surrounds. The new Duster gets new roof rails as well as black cladding on the tailgate. It also gets new alloy wheels.

Inside, the updated Duster will get a new seat fabric as well as an updated infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Its safety features are expected to consist of dual front airbags, ABS, parking sensors and speed warning as standard on all variants.

Under the hood, the Duster facelift will retain its 1.5-litre 4-cylinder petrol and diesel optons with BS6 revisions. The fate of the 85PS diesel variant is still unknown.

The Duster facelift is expected to be priced at a premium over the pre-facelift model due to its makeover and additional features. The Duster facelift will compete against rivals like the Hyundai Creta and Nissan Kicks when launched.

Renault Duster prices start at Rs. 8.00 lakh for petrol and goes upto Rs. 10.00 lakh. The prices of Duster diesel variants start at Rs. 9.20 lakh and the top-end diesel is priced at Rs. 13.10 lakh. Renault Duster is available in 10 variants and 7 colours.

Editor's View of Renault Duster

  • Upside

    Two good diesel engines, great AWD system on select variants, good ride characteristics

  • Downside

    AMT not smooth, cramped interior, sub-par quality interior, not backed by a reliable after-sales service network

  • Our Verdict

    The new Renault Duster is certainly an improvement over what was already a great car and the new automatic gearbox makes a lot more sense, especially with traffic getting worse in the cities. With sharp new looks, an updated interior along with a very robust mechanical package, the Duster ticks a lot of our boxes.

Duster Detailed Review

Renault Duster Highlights

Specifications

You can choose between a 1.5-litre petrol or a 1.5-litre diesel engine. The diesel motor gets two states of tune - 85PS/200Nm and 110PS/245Nm, whereas the petrol makes 106PS and 142Nm. You can choose between a 5-speed manual or a CVT with the petrol motor, and a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AMT with the more powerful diesel. Our pick would be the punchy 110PS diesel that seems at home on the open highways. Of course, it’s the only one in the pack to feature all-wheel drive. So, if getting dirty is your thing, the Duster is your only option for now.

Exterior and Interior

If you like your SUVs tough, muscular and rugged, the Duster should appeal to you a whole lot. The design is nearly a decade old, but you’d admit - it does tug at your heartstrings with its bulbous wheel arches, high-set bonnet and large 16-inch alloy wheels. The facelift added a new pair of headlamps and tail lamps and redesigned bumpers but didn’t drastically alter the Duster’s aesthetics. It still looks like a purposeful small SUV that’s ready to take a beating.

To say the Duster’s cabin looks a bit outdated would be an understatement. The design seems staid and the feature list isn’t as lengthy either. Highlights include a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system (without Android Auto or Apple CarPlay), automatic climate control, cruise control (with a speed limiter) and not much else. Quality levels could’ve been a tad better too. Space on offer is par for the course. The high-seating position and comfy seats make the Duster a fantastic road-tripper. The 475-litre boot is among the most cavernous in its class and can pack in a treadmill if you fold the rear seats down. Trust us, we tried.

Competitors

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross: Maruti's premium crossover suffers from the fact that it does not look like an SUV. It is a premium offering with a good amount of standard equipment, good space for five people and their luggage.

Renault Captur: The Captur brings some style to a segment of boxy SUVs. If you want to stand out in the crowd or while munching highway miles, the big Renault is worth a dekko!

Honda BR-V: Honda's offering in the segment is essentially a jacked up Mobilio with some mechanical changes to compensate for the raised stance. It is one of the only crossovers here which can seat seven people.

Nissan Terrano: The Duster's better-looking cousin (for some), the Terrano suffers from being too overpriced for its own good. It does get a diesel AMT variant which is a good option for those looking for a convenient urban SUV.

Hyundai Creta: There’s not much wrong with the Creta. It’s spacious, is built well inside out and drives well too. It’s got an appeal very few of its competitors can match.

ZigSays

The Duster can survive an apocalypse. It’s built tough inside out and wouldn’t shudder at the thought of a road trip. It’s spacious and comfortable too. The only thing holding it back are the spartan interiors and a dated feature list. If you can make peace with that, the price drop has made it all the more tempting.
