The Renault Duster facelift is now also offered in two new colour options - 'Caspian Blue' and 'Mahogany Brown'.

Under the hood, the 2019 Renault Duster features the same 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, but unlike what we had expected they are still BS4 compliant. The petrol engine is tuned to churn out 105 bhp and develop 142 Nm of peak torque and comes mated to a 5-speed manual and an optional CVT automatic transmission. The 1.5-litre oil burner, on the other hand, continues to come in two states of tune - 84 bhp and 108 bhp, developing 200 Nm and 245 Nm of peak torque respectively. While the 84 bhp version comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, the 108 bhp model comes with a 6-speed manual and an optional AMT (automated manual transmission) unit. The Duster continues to be the only SUV in its segment to offer an all-wheel drive (AWD) system.
