Editor's View of Renault Duster
Two good diesel engines, Automatic options with both petrol and diesel engines, refreshed interiors and good ride characteristics
AMT could have been smoother, interiors are still cramped and is set to lose it's diesel engine option by April 2020.
The new Renault Duster is another improvement over what was already a great car. The automatic options with both fuel options is great with the way traffic is increasing. It's a great looker with an updated interior along with a very robust mechanical package, the Duster ticks a lot of our boxes.

Q. Is Duster reliable?

Q. I am in search of SUV and liked Duster for nice space, handling and comfort. Inquired at dealers but all are selling automatic vehicle. No one has 85 PS MT... not even 110 MT. Dealers say we don't have clarity on launch or new duster. I liked this SUV but it's taking me away by old age interiors and no features. Want to know what exactly is launch date and why Reno so dull on announcing new refresh launch date ? And if that is going to be late, why not selling 85PS MODELS ?
Q. Which is better Brezza or Duster?

Renault Duster Highlights
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 crossover in this price bracket 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 facelift brings with it new projector headlamps, LED DRLs, new front grill and chrome accents. The bonnet has a new, twin bump design and there are new alloy wheels as well.
The interiors have received a much needed sprucing up with a new steering wheel, new upholstery and an updated 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It now features the Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control and cruise control and an Arkamys tuned sound system. 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.
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.
Ford EcoSport: The EcoSport is back with a vengeance. It looks like a small SUV (and not a big hatch), packs in a healthy amount of kit right from the base variant and has potent motors under the hood. And it’s got tons of swag too. Deal?
