Renault India that rolled out the 110PS (108bhp) Duster Adventure Edition at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo, has now launched this edition with the 85PS (84bhp) diesel version of the compact SUV. While the more powerful 110PS diesel engine powered version comes at Rs 11.79 lakh, the lower spec 85PS Adventure Edition is priced at Rs 9.16 lakh (prices are ex-showroom, Delhi).
Except for the change in engine, both the 110PS and 85PS versions of Duster Adventure look similar. The Adventure Edition comes equipped with smoked headlamps, 'armouring' on headlights, door side sill, moulding on the sides, cladding on wheel arches, 'Adventure' inscribed tailgate D-pillar and new alloy-wheels give it a different look than the regular model.
