Best drivers car!
It's been over a year I've owned the Renault duster RxZ AWD. I've done a bit of offloading and this car handles anything you throw at it! It stays planted on the most uneven surface and inspires a lot the suspension eats up all of the surface imperfection and very little filters into the cabin the steering offers a lot of feedback and inspires a lot! The main thing about this car is its engine in city traffic, just put your foot down and it launches forward as the duster has legendary pulling power, however, I do wish that Renault should have offered the petrol in the top end! The feeling of driving a Renault Duster is one of its own kind!
However we don't live in a perfect world so even this car has some flaws such as the clutch is a lot heavier and makes it cumbersome to drive in city traffic(the gearbox is good however!) when the aircon is set to full the air that comes out is just the fan it makes a huge difference in summer days! Steering feels heavy in city traffic and can be tiring! The rear AC just works as fan i.e. it throws the air that is in front straight into the backseat I just feel like the should have connected the rear aircon vents to the compressor unit! The stereo control is hidden behind the steering wheel which is not visible most of the time and the driver has to take eyes off the road and adjust its view so that they can see the control switches and thus it remains kind of useless. Talking about switches the electronic control of side view mirrors is below the handbrake and it makes things quite challenging and difficult plus it even doesn't have the indicator on the fuel gauge indicating which side the fuel tank is! The side view mirrors are not retractable! The sound system is good provided you tweak its settings to your liking! The height control od headlight is hidden near the bonnet release flap! The main thing that I think affects the sales of this vehicle is the after sales service of Renault which in my personal experience is terrible!
Put everything aside and try to have some fun with this car and you will have a big smile on your face as this car may not be too fancy but it sure knows how to make anyone smile! The off road capabilities of this car are outstanding none the less! Driving this car sure gives you the feeling like is made to get beyond the normal terrain and explore the boundaries! This car increases your passion for driving and you would never want to turn off this car and if you decide to do so there is an eco mode which helps you reduce the fuel costs
To sum up this car is made for the person who loves to drive and likes to take their car to new roads to explore different terrains
