Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Duster

Q. What is the difference between turbo variants and non turbo variants?
  • If you want more power then you may go for turbo engines, on the other hand, the naturally aspirated engines would be best suited for city commutes and good enough for calm driving. However, you may feel the power lag on highways and when sudden acceleration is required. The Duster Turbo is powered by a 1330cc four-cylinder turbocharged engine that makes a healthy 156PS of power and 254Nm of torque, a huge jump over the 1.5-litre motor (106PS/142Nm). The first thing that you notice as soon as you start driving the Duster Turbo is just how refined this motor is. You barely hear it at idle and save for some vibrations through the steering and pedals, it is a soothing place to be in. Being turbocharged you do get some throttle lag below 1600rpm but even here this engine doesn’t feel dead and has enough grunt to pull forward without much hesitation. However, this motor does tend to stall easily if you release the clutch a bit too quickly, something you have to keep in mind in stop-go traffic. Thankfully, because the Turbo version comes with a start-stop system this issue is somewhat negated. For a better understanding of compatibility and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive.

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.

    Driving till

    I think it is very early for review because i just completed 5000 kilometres.On this much driving i found renoult duster is very comfortable and my experience of driving till now is very good.Mileage i found very good.Pickup is good build quality no doubt better.Sad to say vibration in body got started and service in gorakhpur is also very pathetic its my second free service and they charge me ₹600 for servicing which should be free.They charge this because i was 1 month late to due service date.
