Duster is to my notice is the only car that amazed me from Renault family. . I am a crazy driver who loves spending like whole day behind the wheels... I get a lot of confidence in highways espicially attacking corners or city drive when i am in a rush .. my pops bought 85ps rxz model... but 110ps was an if statement.. engine noise is a minimum.. the dashboard looks oldish with black plastics... infotec need to be rallied to match the market. bootspace is amazing considering its segment... talking about body outlooks its has simple but muscular outlooks bumps at the front n back secctions of the body where tire protudes..driving over in city all i can say these bumps need to be talken under notice or else scratches might happen .. this what makes me unhappy .. height is adjustable.. one advice if u r driving in highways keep the seat height low to enjoy it better. suspension is good till now to my notice
One of the best cars to own and drive. I have driven from Delhi to Srinagar, shimla, mandawa, Jaipur,McLeodgunj, and down south too . A car which is smooth and can drive on terrains or cross country or highways and it is just an awesome feeling . Well own it to feel it
Its a great car with total control, only the clutch is hard and the length is little more which creates parking issues, otherwise no parallel in my opinion. As I have knee problem, I am going for automatic version.
The maintenance cost is very high and Parts get failed early leading to too much of Cost. Shock absorbers as per my experience are prone to failure and are costly
Great car for comfort and safety. Its pick up is awesome and the driving comfort is fantastic. Its stability and road grip is incredible
The Duster AWD is just the car you'd want to take out on a road trip as we found out during an outing to Goa
What's the best compact SUV if your left leg doesn't like the clutch?
We finally get our hands on the long awaited Renault Duster Automatic that comes with a diesel engine and a 6-speed AMT gearbox. So was it worth the wait?
