You need to get an improper and curvy road that will judge An SUV. Well, I got both to write this review on Renault Duster. I have driven it from Bengaluru to Kodachadri. So I could test it on city traffic, highway, Ghats (curvy roads) and off road (heavily raining in kodachadri and driving off-road was completely fun to drive duster). SO here we go.

Cayenne Orange Duster looks great. The build is strong, style language is unique. This is something every driver want to flaunt on highway, city or off-road. Straight away I will give 9/10 points for looks and 9/10 points for a strong build. 16inch tire adds the tough image to duster.

Get inside and you will see the practicality maintained in every department. You get a sporty steering, road view is good, you get a maharaja view on the driver seat. You have a very neat dashboard, hard plastics used are quite good. You get all the modern features on the infotainment screen and it is more than efficient at this price rate. Driver seat and co-driver seat are very comfortable. Plenty of space to keep bottles, mobile or any food packets. Now go to back seat and duster will surprise us by plenty of space. You get huge leg space, head space, and more importantly, 3 people can easily fit in the second row which is a big advantage for long journeys. Also, we have a big room I can say for the boot space. Renault has scored well for the practicality.

I started driving in the Bengaluru city traffic and it's easy to tackle the traffic with a duster. Gearbox is the biggest plus point in this area as it was not required to change the gear again and again. I could drive in 3rd gear at low speeds which is quite an advantage in city traffic. I think it's the same which we saw on Logan. As soon as I hit the wide highway, I found the 85PS duster engine lags for the first 2000rpm and then it wakes up after hitting 2000rpm. Feedback of steering is not so responsive but can be neglected. Once we entered ghat sections, it was very exciting to see the way it was handling. Ride quality is good. Handling is good. It took the humps/bumps well, rounds up the pot holes. Then we got a chance to see the off-road ability of the duster. It handled pretty well in Kodachadri, we had fun to drive duster. What we missed on duster is 4x4. AWD could have added more fun.

Safety: Dual airbags, ABS and EBD are the safety features. Renault should consider giving 6 airbags for the duster.

Verdict: 85PS is definitely good in city driving condition and off road but not on a highway. If you are the one who goes on the highway more frequently then your choice should be 110ps. Coming back to 85PS I think it's the best SUV we have got. Practicality is one word for duster. I give thumbs up for the Renault Duster.
