    One of the best cars

    Krishnasastry Jul 18, 2016 10:21 AM
    I bought my Duster (RXL 85 ps) in Dec 2013, done 47000 km. One of the best, most comfortable car, driven by me. I went to Hyderabad from Pune more than 3 times. Since my first tank fill-up, the worst average is 22.8 and median average is 26.3. I have always got above 24.7 for the last 40000 km. The service center guys took picture of my mileage! I don't drive wildly. I am a passive driver, never race but just enjoy the comfort of the ride. Nothing beats this car in terms of ride comfort. May be 35 lakh plus Audi and Benz/BMW may be it but I have not paid that price. Just yesterday, I sat in my friend's Alto and I was wondering did I sit in this small car for 9 years! (I owned a Maruti 800 for 9 years, Fiat Palio for 7 years). I think this review will sum-up in just one sentence. If I were to buy another car, I will not have any hesitation to walk back to the same Renault showroom. This means I do not have anything else in mind!

    Value for Money and well versed driving experience

    Bharat Jun 06, 2016 01:00 PM
    With twofold experience after driving Hyundai Creta and Maruti Brezza, Renualt is still one of the best experience car which we are looking for in means to Comfort and Mileage. May be the car manages the average look but it still has got his style which is very easy to like under this segment where competition is very tough. After owning and driving the care especially on Highway, it gives the wonderful driving experience and comfort. ?Car is very spacious and is very much comfortable for the ride of 4. The mileage is just awesome on highways depending on driver handling and driving the car. Overall Experience:- Value for money

Renault Duster Preview

Renault has made few prominent additions to the new Duster, but has played smart when it comes to pricing with the line-up priced between Rs 8.46 lakh to Rs 13.56 lakh. What sets it apart from other SUVs is the robust stance. The aggression is visible on the front profile and it does lend a manly stance to the SUV. Thankfully, the muscularity hasn’t lost over the last couple of updates. Quickly going through what has changed in the latest version, the SUV gets tweaked head lamps, revised bumper up front and a redesigned dual winged radiator grille. Getting back to the design, Duster wears a macho design, face gets a black honey-comb backdrop ornate by thick split up chrome grille meeting the large head lamps. Lower bumper features a silver skid plate, black cladding and small rounded fog lamps enclosed in black housing. Wheel arches are notable and wheels are meaty but the gap between both looks awkward. Flanks feature a side stepper, prominent character lines, ORVMs and alloy wheels. Rear gets skid plate, single exhaust, chrome garnish on the boot lid and suave tail lamps.

Duster Interiors

Cabin has not received any vital styling change, but the feature list has been revised. The dual tone colour theme is enveloped inside. Dashboard too is draped in dual tone colour palette and gets circular AC vents on sides as well as up on the centre console. The tri-pod instrument cluster is large and uncluttered avoiding commotion. There are practical storage points within the cabin and boot space is decent enough. Quality of plastic used inside does not seem compromised and there is enough room for passengers in front and rear rows. Renault has added few vital features inside like automatic climate control, rear view camera with guidelines, new media navigation, auto-up/down power windows etc.

Duster Engine Specifications & Transmission


New Renault Duster range is available in three engine options, one petrol and two diesel powertrains. Powering petrol variant is a 1.6 K4M, four cylinder, in-line petrol engine developing 104 PS at 5750rpm along with 148Nm at 3750rpm. The 1.5 litre dCi, four cylinder, in-line diesel engine is available in two states of tune- 85 PS and 110 PS. The 85 PS version produces top torque of 200Nm at 1750rpm, whereas the 110 PS version engenders 245Nm of torque at 1750rpm. Transmission choices include a five-speed manual gearbox, a six-speed manual tranny and a six-speed automated
manual transmission. The six-speed AMT transmission is available only on the RxS 110 PS diesel variant, base petrol and diesel trims feature five-speed manual gearbox and rest of the grades come mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

Renault Duster Competition

In the compact SUV space, Duster has a couple of popular models to battle out with. From the recent additions to the segment, Hyundai Creta has emerged the strongest rival donning Hyundai’s contemporary Fluidic design language. Other than Hyundai Creta, Nissan Terrano and Maruti S-Cross are the potential rivals in the segment. Although there are other names too in the SUV space but contemplating the dimensions and engine capacity they offer they fall beneath Duster in the hierarchy. Moreover, the addition of an AMT in the line-up was rational as arch rivals offered this option, hence were eating up on the sales of Duster. Similarly, the AWD variant has strengthened Duster range giving it the much needed edge.
