Pros : Style, performance, efficiency

Cons : Feature pack, finish interior

Look and Style: Great, surprisingly the base Model RXE looks better from inside   Comfort: Good seats, under thigh support and space, Suspension a bit stiffer than cars   Pickup: Quite nice, Flat torque curve, not like Verna Diesel. Excellent gear speed overlap, can drive it in low speeds at higher gears unlike VGT.   Mileage: 16-17 in city   Best Features:   Needs to improve: Rear leg room, boot spce can be compromised. Steering finish. Dead pedal. Should offer ABS in base model.   Overall Experience: Excellent performance, Great value for money. Very Sturdy on raod. Steering decently balanced, not stiff not too soft.

    Hi, i bought 85 PS RXL optional on 6th April and driven 3500 KMS. Car is not at all worth the money. It has got the technology of 1980s. Interior is so poor that you can compare only with maruti 800. You can get a feel of exterior just by pressing the metal body all over, its exactly comparable and not better that the body of daewoo Matiz. Clutch is bad, i already got the clutch problem, suddenly the play in the clutch was missing and it was riding the clutch on its own, i got it adjusted from renault service centre and renault guys did not have an answer when i asked about the cause of the problem. The car gets switched off when you try to pull it in 2nd gear at low speeds. The engine / wind noise is horrible at speeds above 80 kmph. I am getting quirky sound from all over the body just like a tata safari. My swift Dzire is far better even after running 1.1 Lac kms. I think i wasted my money only in the return of high ground clearance which duster offers. there are so many bads about the car, i will detail them in a separate review.
