Renault Duster Pictures

Renault gave birth to a new segment of vehicles when it showcased the prominent compact SUV Duster at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo, while everyone was stunned to witness this master stroke; a few auto-critics termed it as a game changer for Renault. And unsurprisingly, the Duster received phenomenal response from the auto-freaks all across the nation and gave Renault the much needed recognition and glory. Basically, it is such an exquisitely crafted vehicle that comes up with an feeling of SUV in terms of exterior appearance but at the same time it astonishes you with its super sporty interiors as that of a sedan.

 

Renault Duster was built on the Logan's platform and hence it measures a mere 4.31 meters in length and 1.81 meters in width. The best thing is the ground clearance of 305 mm which makes it compatible for both off-roading as well as city driving. It's exterior appearance totally defines its raw nature and the supreme performance packed engines do complete justice to that image. The front portion having grille with chrome gives it a sturdy yet eye-catching appeal. A lot more attention has been turned towards the suspension system in order to enhance its sustainability on any terrain.

 

Renault has presented the SUV in both petrol and diesel fuel trims, simultaneously. It has offered a total of 10 variants in this line-up, out of which 8 variants come with diesel fuel trim whereas the remaining two fall in the category of petrol. The eight diesel variants in the diesel line up are bisected perfectly in two segments, each one with different power output but sporting the same diesel engine. It is available in seven elegant colours which are Cosmos Blue, Metallic Graphite Grey, Metallic Woodland Brown, Pearl Supreme White, Metallic Moonlight Silver, Metallic Fiery Red, and Pearl Galaxy Black.

 

Its low weight and compact size also contributes to the fact that makes it perform so well while taking its tenacity and agility factor to a new level. It is being offered with three different engine options i.e. two diesel engines and a petrol mill. The diesel variants are offered with 4-cylinder, 16-valve, 1461 cc K9K diesel engines which are capable of churning out two different power outputs of 83.8bhp at 3750rpm and 108.5bhp at 3900rpm. This impeccable engine has been tweaked in such a manner that it is versatileness is giving multiple options to both buyers as well as makers. It also generates two different torques in accordance with the aforementioned power outputs which are 200Nm at 1900rpm and 248Nm at 2250rpm.

 

The diesel variants of the SUV are being offered with two different transmission options - a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox for 85 PS variants while a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox for 110 PS. And as far as petrol variants are concerned, Renault has executed the 4-cylinder, 16-valve, 1598cc, In-line petrol engine quite well with the petrol variants and subsequently, it has yielded fair results for the company. This highly efficient engine produce a power output of 102.6 bhp at 5850 rpm and a peak torque of 145Nm at 3750 rpm. It is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox which assists superbly in the outstanding performance and power of the vehicle.

 

Renault has incorporated several premium safety features in the compact SUV for the sake of providing maximum safety to its buyers. It hasn't left a single stone unturned by including premium features like Engine Immobilizer, Door Open Warning Lamp, Central Locking, Anti-lock Braking System, Emergency Brake Assist, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Stability Control Module, Two Front Airbags and Three-point Seatbelt Tensioners. All these safety features can give a glimpse of the vision that Renault had in mind while indulging all these exquisite features in the Duster. Renault has placed an integrated 2DIN Audio (CD/MP3/AM/FM) Player compatible with USB , Aux-in & Bluetooth along with four speakers. In top-end variants, it has facilitated the customers by giving steering mounted audio-controls. What adds more zing to this compact SUV is the 16'' alloy wheels entangled with sturdy tubeless tyres of size 215/65 R16. These super wheels makes it a favourable one in almost every terrain right from muddy to hilly.

 

To sum up its all features, we can reach to a conclusion that it is a unique vehicle which comfortably caters five people despite leaving a mammoth boot space of 475 litres. It is just extra-ordinary as so much boot capacity can swallow almost every luggage with complete ease. The A/C Vents and Navigation System are like icing on the cake. Pricing too is quite affordable and has continued attracting buyers in great numbers. However, it long had not competitors but the cropping of Ford EcoSport and Nissan Terrano to the scene has certainly put a dent in its sales. Indirectly, it has Maruti Ertiga, Tata Safari, Mahindra Xylo, etc. as rivals.

Renault Duster Interior

Renault Duster Interior

Editor's take : It is only the interiors of the Duster that failed to appeal us. The plastic quality isn’t up to the mark, even though the fit and finish is decent. The space in the SUV is just phenomenal, with large and supportive seats.

 

The interiors of the car are practical and incorporate host of features as per liking and requirements of today’s consumers, especially in India. Though it’s European counterpart Dacia Duster’s interiors has striking similarity to Renault Logan or Sandero, but in Renault's compact SUV here, the cabin is more tweaked for a difference in sub continental conditions. Interiors are comfortable and inspiring enough for this price range. Coming to the front portion, the seats are nice with broader base and ergonomic back support. The higher position allows better road viewing for the driver and co-passenger. Driver’s seat has lumbar support and comes with height adjustable feature. The driver seat positioning is spot on and the adjustable arrangement further makes seating perfect for drivers with different heights. Rear seats are sufficiently spacious thanks to the lengthier wheelbase which paves way for more space inside the cabin. If someone wants to increase the luggage space at the rear, the second row seat can be folded up. Its cabin can easily carry five average size passengers. The compartment has enough, head room, legroom and shoulder room for the occupants that can feel a sigh of relief on the journey. The dashboard at the front is dressed with glossy black piano theme with decently sized glove box. The board certainly looks plush and soft to touch with plenty of other spaces for knick knacks. The center console of this compact SUV is equipped with state-of-the-art 2-DIN stereo system that has MP3/ CD/ Radio playback functionality. Furthermore, this modern stereo system is backed by USB, Bluetooth, AUX-In support and for ensuring surround sound, 4-speakers are ready to enhance music experience. The instrument panel has got clear vision of the speedometer and other technical information. The clothing inside the car is of premium beige 3D embossed making you feel comfy during long journeys while optional leather pack is also offered for those who want more premiumness in their car. The fit and finish work is top notch and leaves no space for any complaints. 

The newly launched variant Renault Duster 85PS diesel RxE Adventure boasts special interior aspects including lime green fabric upholstery with DUSTER lettering, sporty floor mats with Duster lettering and a dual tone dashboard.   The steering wheel and gear knob are wrapped up in leather and are good to hold. The slick gear knob moves as and when you require. Mounted audio and phone controls on steering wheel make driving more convenient and hassle-free and ensure that driver always has his eyes on the road. Air-conditioner is decent while the climate control could have been better. Other convenient features include 12V charging point at both front and rear for the devices on the move, rear AC with independent blower control and rear armrest cup holder for more comfort. There are power windows switches provided for both front and rear passengers with illumination while reverse parking sensors are there to help in for trouble-free parking. All in all, this compact SUV guarantees genuine interior comfort with sophisticated features arranged in a perfect manner. 

 

Interior Comfort:

 

It comes with airy and comfortable interiors. Comfort levels are defined with well cushioned seats, good amount of headroom, legroom and shoulder-room for all the occupants. The vehicle has ample space at the rear, the boot space stands tall at 475-liters and provides enough room to carry more luggage while going on long journeys. The powerful air-conditioning system is an added element to provide better comfort. The SUV provides enough space to accommodate 5 passengers. With the back seat folded down, the space available goes up to massive 1,636 litres! Folding the front passenger seat down enables objects as long as 2.65 meters to be carried in the passenger compartment.

Engine and Performance

Editor's take : While driving Duster we felt that despite K9K being a frugal engine, it possesses fair drivability to roam around the town. Acceleration, as expected, is quite brisk and even when lugged in a higher cog, it pulls out swiftly. The torque figure of 85 bhp duster feels better in city driving conditions as compared to 110 bhp variant. All these factors contribute to a larger extent in luring the customers and make it a good buy.

 

Power

Renault has presented the compact SUV in both petrol and diesel trims. It is being offered with three different engine options. In petrol, Renault has incorporated a 1.6-litre engine with DOHC technology. Currently, the French manufacturer is only offering two petrol variants. Though, its not as formidable as the diesel ones, still it has held the fortress quite nicely. To be more specific, its 1598cc, 4-cylinder, 16-valve, In-line petrol engine churns out a maximum power output of 102.6 bhp at 5850 RPM and a peak torque of 145 Nm at 3750 RPM. It is coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission gear box to maximize performance and acceleration. The acceleration, too, is quite impressive as it reaches the 0-100 kmph mark within 11.5 seconds and attains a top speed of 160 kmph. It is quite suitable for city driving but on highways its NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness) is a matter of concern.

 

Renault has launched a total of 8 variants in diesel trim and they are divided equally into two categories. One category comprises of the variants that have 85PS power engine, while the other category consists of the remaining variants which have a mighty 110PS engine. Although, the engine in both these categories is similar but the thing which fascinates is the way it has been moulded in two categories. The company has elegantly tweaked the 1.5-litre dCi engine in order to obtain two different power outputs, i.e. one of 85PS and other of 110PS. This 1.5-litre dCi engine also perform its duties in Renault's existing cars like Scala and Pulse. Specifically, its 1.5-litre, 1461cc, 4-cylinder, 16-valve, common rail direct injection K9K diesel engine that is phenomenal and comes up with two different power outputs: 83.8BHP at 3750 RPM and 108.5BHP at 3900 RPM. The reason behind this difference is that the engine delivering 108.5bhp is the Step 4 version of K9K engine, which also uses a variable geometry turbo instead of regular fixed geometry turbo.

 

Acceleration & Pick up

 

This engine delivers supreme performance, power and acceleration. It generates higher degree of torques like 248 Nm at 2250 RPM for 110 PS power output whereas 200 Nm at 1900 RPM for 85 PS power output. The 85 PS variants are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission gear box in order to execute the power and performance quotient correctly. On the other hand, the 110 PS variants are coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission gear box so that higher performance and acceleration can be achieved. The figures for 0-100 kmph for both 85 PS and 110 PS are 13.9 seconds and 12.5 seconds , respectively. The top speed too for these variants are as high as 156 kmph and 168 kmph.

Stereo & Accessories

Renault Duster Accessories

Editor's take : The integrated music system in the Duster is decent, although we wish that the speakers could have been a tad better.

 

It comes with an integrated 2DIN Audio (CD/MP3/AM/FM) with USB, Aux-in & Bluetooth with 4 speakers. The music system is good and the high-end variants also come with the steering mounted controls. An advanced MEDIANAV system is bestowed in the new 85PS Adventure edition offering high end entertainment.

You can now buy Renault Duster accessories online. Great discounts available.

Wheels

Renault Duster Wheels

Wheels play a significant role both in looks as well as the off-roading ability of the vehicle. Hence, 16 inch alloy/steel wheels are incorporated in the vehicle to make it a picture perfect SUV. Additionally, these wheels have amazing tenacity as they are highly stable on almost any terrain. The 16 inch wheels are armoured with tubeless sturdy tyres of size 215/65 R16, in accordance with wheels nut-cover and anti-theft key.

Braking & Handling

Renault Duster DashBoard

Editor's take : Being based on the Logan platform, the handling of the Duster is good and it can do around corners like any other car.

 

Renault has strike gold everytime with its vehicles, especially the handling and braking section has won it several accolades and appreciation. This SUV is no exception, as it has been equipped with supreme braking system. An all new hydraulically operated diagonal split dual circuit braking system has been introduced in this compact SUV with disc brakes at the front and drum ones at the rear. Furthermore, the highly acclaimed Logan platform provides it the much needed flexibility and subsequently it performs exceptionally well on highways as well as on muddy terrains. It gets a monocoque chassis and receives an independent Macpherson strut with coil springs and anti-roll bar as front suspension. Rear suspension is a deflected torsion beam axle with coil-springs and anti-roll bar ; very similar to several hatchbacks which helps in reducing costs. The petrol variants of the compact SUV possess Hydraulic power assisted steering whereas an Electro Hydraulic power assisted steering is executed with the diesel variants.

Safety and Security

Renault Duster Safety

Editor's take : The Duster comes with ABS and with two airbags in its top of the line versions.

 

Renault has left no stone unturned in making the SUV a completely safe and secure vehicle by embracing many protective features. Premium safety features such as Anti-Lock Braking System, Emergency Brake Assist, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Stability Control Module, etc. find themselves in this compact SUV. Additionally, Impact Sensing Door Unlock, Engine Protective Under Guard, Front Fog Lamps , and Rear Defogger enhance the safety quotient by a huge margin and protects the occupants in any unwanted situations. Best of all, it comes up with Dual Front SRS Airbags which ensure maximum safety of the front passenger as well as the driver in any case of front collision. The presence of front armour with lamps, wheel arch claddings, side body moldings, a set of anthracite alloy wheels and smoky headlight cluster in the newly launched Renault Duster 85PS diesel RxE Adventure enhance the safety as well as the beauty of this compact machine. Three-point seat-belt pre-tensioners also make their presence felt as they come handy to occupants in state of any crashing. Seeing all these features, it can be certainly propounded that this compact SUV comprises of world class safety features and it is among the safest SUVs that we have currently available in India.

  • When Renault launched the Duster in India two years ago the SUV sold like hot cakes. This was an SUV which was appealing to the masses not just aesthetically but also financially. Though not a hard core off-roader the Renault Duster quickly impressed auto enthusiasts winning praises, and though it lacked the feel of an off-roader, it was anticipated that Renault would eventually launch the Duster with features that would make it an SUV not just for the road, but also off it. In the past years the Duster has been launched in the Anniversary and Adventure editions, but these have been merely cosmetic changes. Come 2014 and Renault introduces the Duster with a 4x4 version called the Duster AWD. We recently drove the Duster AWD at a drive conducted by Renault at Lavasa and here are our first impressions....

  • An excellent Compact SUV

    Look and Style: I love its style compared to Nissan Terrano and Ford Ecosport. I like its masculine features. Comfort: Very comfortable in driving. Found it very easy to handle but seats need a little bit more thigh support. Pickup: Excellent in its class. The power is felt when it crosses 2000 rpm. Mileage: At present, I am getting 15 kmpl inside city.  Best Features: The easy handling, excellent suspension and charismatic designing are its best... read full review
  • Impressed by the Renault Duster 110PS Diesel Model
    By Mahesh | |3292 Views
    14 people found it helpful.
    I just had the most amazing evening.. I took the test drive of Renault Duster from the showroom. This compact SUV indeed impressed me. The 110 PS diesel model is full of power. The engine zooms fine even when I pressed the throttle with the light foot. The torque I felt at 1500 rpm was just amazing. I actually took the test drive for more than 15 to 17 kms, thanks to the friendly sales executive. On highway, while overtaking a truck, I just put ... read full review

  • Renault Showcases Duster 4WD; Launch Next Month
    Posted On | 4466 Views

    Renault India has started showcasing the new Duster 4WD to media fraternity (Four-Wheel-Drive – 4X4); the launch is slated for next month. This AWD (All-Wheel-Drive) version is similar to the existing Duster apart from new decals and Duster Adventure edition mods and ofcourse four wheel drive setup! The AWD version is likely to be available in two trims, one of which will be the top-end with all goodies on board and the other one would be low on features. The 4WD version will be costlier than the existing Duster variants.

  • Renault Duster facelift features spotted in Dacia Duster pick-up test mule!
    Posted On | 2460 Views

    Renault India is prepping up for the Duster facelift launch and in the mean time, Dacia is testing a pick-up version of the Duster; the testing prototypes were spotted completely undisguised. The test mule features a facelifted Duster face while the rear is similar to the current Duster (which is also not expected to change much in the facelift version). It is highly unlikely that Renault will launch it in India, as the French automakers Indian counterpart is getting ready for the Duster facelift, yes with a 4X4!
