  1. The 2020 Renault Duster is now offered with two petrol engine options. First up is the tried and tested 1.5-litre, four-cylinder naturally aspirated BS6 petrol mill and then the brand new 1.3-litre, four-cylinder BS6 turbo petrol motor.

    2020 Renault Duster remains identical to the facelifted model in terms of design.

  2. The new 1.3-litre turbo petrol motor is tuned to churn out 153 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque. Around 48 bhp and 108 Nm of peak torque more than its 1.5-litre petrol counterpart.
  3. The 1.5-litre petrol engines belts out 104 bhp and 142 Nm of peak torque.
  4. While the 1.5-litre engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission as standard, the 1.3-litre engine gets the option of a CVT automatic transmission alongside a six-speed manual transmission which is standard.
  5. The new 1.3-litre mill delivers a fuel economy of 16.5 kmpl when combined with the six-speed manual transmission and 16.42 kmpl when mated to the CVT automatic gearbox.
  6. That said, the Renault Duster is petrol only now and the 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, diesel engine had been discontinued just ahead of the BS6 transition, for obvious reasons (high cost of upgradation). Sadly, this also rules out the all-wheel-drive (AWD) variant which was only offered in the diesel iteration.

  8. The Duster facelift already came with quite a few upgrades made to its front end with the addition of a new grille flanked by new projector headlamp units with DRLs along with LED tail lamps and beefier bumpers at both ends.
