  • That would depend on certain factors such as physical condition of the car, if the car is properly maintained, if the engine is maintained etc. We'd suggest you to get the car inspected by a trusted mechanic before purchasing and he/she would be able to assist you with the details. You may refer to the Used Car Guide for more information.

Q. Which is a better VFM car? 85ps RXS Diesel Duster or Nexon petrol XZ+?Yes, mine is a wierd comparison question since both these are actually in different segments and the fuel is also not the same!My confusion comes with the discounted price of duster since with that, the two cars become similar - price wise.Diesel vs petrol is a question to be pondered considering the BS6 norms next April...Maintenance cost is also a factor.I like Duster lookwise (Exterior and Interior) and besides, it has more space than Nexon. But I am not sure about the practical power of 85ps diesel..and I also believe it would be costlier to maintain than the Nexon.Thoughts and advices please.Best RegardsAnoop
  • Wait until April bs6 the best of now blindly go for the price cut and buy a mid variant duster..they offer good price cuts on all year ends...maintenance problem can be overcome by giving service at proper time ..and getting an extended warranty..ensure about replacements..ore check the car...they will not call you for service..beware..these tips are enough..engine warranty upto 1 it ok?...picture abbi bhi baki hai Mr Anoop...electric line up on the way from Renault.
  • I owned both. Duster is superb however i recommend to wait until it start to come with BS6 engine.
  • It is always better diesel duster
Q. Which SUV is good to buy MG Hector, Duster, Honda BRV and Hyundai Creta or any other alternative?

    Best car to own

    Best car to own and ride. Fast pickup and less consumption of fuel.. highly efficient with loaded features

  • Long rides

    Well built car very comfortable on long rides, But high maintenance cost.Ac for rear passenger just average.Fuel mileage 18 kmpl on highway and 15kmpl in city.Excellent ride and handling on rough roads with minimal body roll.High ground clearance of 210 mm gives confidence on rough roads and water logged roads in mosoon.Overall a good reliable package despite poor service by some dealers.Only problem is to get idea of road end on right side front bumper.Renault solved this in european duster by adding puddle camera but not in india.
