Renault Duster Facelift

Renault has silently launched the much awaited Duster facelift on 2nd March at a price tag of Rs. 8.47 lakhs (Ex-showroom, New Delhi). Though the car is essentially the same, there is a lot to differentiate it from the outgone model. What the different Duster variants have to offer, we find out.


Like its predecessor, the latest edition of Duster gets a similar set of engines, however, as an added benefit the diesel variants now come with an AMT. On the diesel side, there are two engine options, the 1.5-litre dCi that produces 85 PS and the other with same displacement that produces 110 PS. The relatively underpowered engine comes with a 5-speed manual, while the powerful one is mated to a 6-speed manual and an AMT. On the petrol side, it gets a powerful 1.6-litre engine that churns out max power of 105 PS.



This base variant gets a fair amount of features, the most prominent ones are listed below:

  • Two tone body coloured front bumper
  • Kayak roof rails
  • Cederwood interiors
  • Tilt adjustable steering column

Downers of this variant

  • No rear power windows
  • No wheel caps

  • Waterfall LED taillamps

  • Wheel caps on steel wheels

Downers of this variant

This variant is where you get a decently specced car. Along with the features of RxE, this one offers a few more.

  • 110 PS dCi motor, lower one gets the 85 PS one
  • 6-speed gear option
  • Rear passenger reading lamps
  • Diagonally woven seat fabric

  • Integrated 2-Din music system
  • Bluetooth connectivity and telephony with 4-speakers
  • Electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs
  • Gear shift indicator

  • No alloy wheels

Renault Duster RxS

Along with the features of the RxL variant, this one gets the following:

  • Alloy wheels
  • Firefly foglamps
  • Sporty double seat fabric, looks more premium
  • Sporty red colour on door trim handle
  • Gear shift indicator with manual transmission


  • No passenger airbag

Renault Duster RxZ

Along with the above mentioned features, it gets the below add-ons.

  • Offered with an all wheel drive variant
  • Automatic air conditioner
  • Anti-pinch power windows
  • Driver side auto up and down
  • Driver seat armrest   
  • Height adjustable driver seat with lumbar support

Undoubtedly, Renault Duster is a decently packaged vehicle, and one can opt for this across the variant range at different price points. There is also a new colour choice that has been added (Cayenne Orange), which has made this tough little SUV even more appealing.
