Think twice and test it at high speeds before you buy
First let me tell you what is wrong with Duster and then move on to good / practical aspects. The major flop with the vehicle is the design and quality of door beadings. Cabin is relatively silent till you reach 90 KMPH. After that it feels as if you are driving against hurricane with windows crack open. The music system as such is shitty and once you are above 90 KMPH you can't hear music or talk to each other. It becomes worse as you speed up. I have tried my level best to get it looked at by Renault India team but only to realize they don't care for customer input. They had my vehicle for a full week and did nothing except for few scratches on the body. After this goof up the storing space inside cabin comes as second. Even a 5-7 Lakh car sold in India has better storage space. The headlights are pathetic and what is more frustrating than this fact is, they are designed in such a way that you can't find a replacement HID kit in market. The flared nosing gets scratched in city traffic, even if you are waiting for standing still waiting for signal. and they widely flared nosing above the tires is the primary reason for wind resistance. Drive quality can't be enjoyed above 90 KMPH. If you want this car (not an SUV) for driving within city then go for it. I have done enough research to make the wind noise go away but failed. Anyone wanting more information before buying can respond to this post or get in touch with me.

Hi Sivasankar, Is your review based on 2017 Duster. Im looking forward to buy duster 2017 CVT model. During my test drive, i also felt that the vehicle reaches 90 Kmph easily and less cabin noise. But beyond 90, it struggled and cabin noise was too much. Please let me know. It would be useful for me.
