Renault Duster 1.3 Turbo Petrol | Review | Most powerful SUV in the segment | carandbike
India's original compact SUV has been given the turbo treatment with the introduction of the powerful 1.3 litre Turbo Petrol engine. This 4 cylinder engine belts out a good 156 PS at 5,500 rpm but if you like to drive what might bring a bigger smile on your face is that at just 1600 rpm it generates a very impressive torque figure of 254 Nm. In comparison, the 1.5 liter naturally aspirated Petrol engine the car also comes with, stops at 142 Nm @ 4000 rpm and the power is down by a good 50 PS. Renault has offered this 1.3 Liter turbo Petrol with both manual and CVT options. And all that power and torque means this is a car which lets you have a lot of fun right from the word go. It doesn't matter that you're driving the CVT or the manual, the figure remains approximately the same at 16.5 kmpl. The start/stop function on the car also helps to a certain extent. An EcoGuide system, according to Renault monitors driving patterns and provides guidelines to improve efficiency. The 2 higher variants come with 17 inch alloys which also mean the the drive becomes a little more reassuring and you can take to the roads with higher confidence. Sadly though the all-wheel drive option seen earlier on the Duster is missing here. Its easy to differentiate this Turbo variant from the the regular Duster. The red accents have now almost become synonymous with turbo variants of various cars and that's the case here too. Only that here its called crimson red accents. The front grille, the tail gate, the roof rails & the fog lamp cover all get it. Otherwise the tri-winged full chrome grille, dual tone body colour front bumper with skid plates, projector headlamps with LED DRLs, waterfall LED tail lamps and the diamond cut alloys look the same as before. In all there are 7 colour options on offer including the Mahagony brown you see in this video. Inside, the midnight black interiors give this cabin some bit of uniqueness. The familiar 7 inch touch screen is here too and comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and voice recognition. There are 5 variants on offers, while the base RXE trim comes with just a manual gearbox the RXS and the top of the line RXZ get both manual and CVT. That makes it a big price range from Rs. 10.49 lakh to Rs. 13.59 lakh (ex-showroom). Shams Raza Naqvi tests out the the Duster Turbo to find out if it will appeal more to the purists now.
