New Renault Duster Latest Updates

Renault Duster has been around since 2012. The car was extremely well received and created new benchmarks for compact SUVs in India. Its monocoque construction and efficient engines were the chief reasons it did so well. It received some updates and a facelift already but now with nearly 200,000 Dusters sold in India, we have exclusive information on what happens next. 

Renault first updated the Duster with a brand new touchscreen infotainment setup for the top end in 2014. The 4x4 variant came in 2015. The following year it received a major facelift with new grille, headlamps, taillights and bumpers. This was done just for India, and was not in keeping with the Duster's global facelift that had happened in 2014. At the same time we also got an India-specific auto option (AMT) on the diesel Duster on the more powerful 108 bhp variant. Badged as easy-R, the AMT has been quite popular. The car continues to be available with 3 engine options in India - 83 bhp (5-Speed manual gearbox) / 108 bhp 1.5-litre diesel (6-Speed manual/AMT), and 104 bhp 1.5-litre petrol (5-Speed manual/ 6-Speed CVT). The petrol has an auto option of a CVT gearbox.Renault is expected to use India as the lead development market for the next generation of the Duster.
