Highlights

  • The 2020 Renault Duster gets a new 1.3 Turbo petrol engine in its line-up
  • The 1.5 petrol stays, while the 1.5 diesel and AWD are discontinued.
  • The Renault Duster is the most affordable compact SUV in this comparison.

The 2020 Renault Duster BS6 was eagerly awaited not just because of the transition, but also because it gets a brand new 1.3-litre, four-cylinder, turbo petrol engine as well. Of course the 1.5 petrol mill stays, but is offered with a manual transmission only. The new 1.3 turbo petrol, however gets both manual and a newly developed CVT automatic transmission. That said, the Renault Duster has gone petrol only now. Yes! There is no diesel engine on offer and sadly, that also eliminates the much lovable all-wheel-drive (AWD) Duster as it was offered only on the outgoing 1.5 Renault Duster diesel.
