Renault Duster 85ps RXL- A real VALUE for MONEY

for 85PS Diesel RxL

Exterior: Its- I feel this is the best looking mini SUV in terms of Price. It'slike a mini Fortuner. The SUV creates its own Macho Look when its on road. The Chrome Grills and the hunky body will make you look at the car, even if you have the least interst in automobiles. The Double Barrel headlights suit the car. The roof rails etc add to the style. The could have made the boot door open sidewards rather than upwards. The could also keep the stepny on the door. It would have increeased the style of the SUV threefolds and would make it look like a real SUV rather than a crossover. In looks i will give 910/10 for the SUV. Yes i do agree its ones personal choice, but i bet no one will say that it is a bad looking SUV   Interior (Features, Space & Comfort):-The interiors of the SUV are fairly built. The space, comfort and cooling of the a/c without the rear vent is awesome. The mirror controls are placed below the hand break which is little difficult to access. The SUV should have been provided with a cruise control, climatic control a/c and foldable mirrors with indicators which looks trendy and which comes as a standard fitting even in low end cars. In terms od interiors i will give 7/10 for the SUV   Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox:- The engine performace is good. Infact 85 ps is best suited for city drives. It is also adequately powered for high ways, especially in india where speed restrictions are there. I have cloaked upto 120kms on my duster. The 5 speed gear box is good, even though not as smooth as in the sedans. But SUV's should have something tough. The fuel economy what i am getting for my vehicle is around 19.89 in high ways and around 18.20 in city with all time a/c on. For the engine performance, fuel economy and gear box i would give the SUV 10/10   Ride Quality & Handling:- the ride quality is excellent. We can maneuver the car even in high speeds. There is seriously no body roll which normally is experienced in Mahindra Vehicles. The drive is just like riding a Sedan. The high ground clearance doesnt make us feel odd when run over pot holes or bumbers etc. I would rate 10/10 for ride quality and handling for this suv.   Final Words:- Overall the 85ps RXL is a a value for money. The rear defogger, rear wipers, fog lamps, back arm rest, the music system all makes it worth the 1lakh what you pay extra. I would recommend the SUV for anyone who is looking for a car/sedan/hatchback/suv's in the price range of 5 lakhs.-15 lakhs. The SUV is not as big as the innova or the scorpio, but it makes a road presence, It gives you better comfort than a etios or a dezire ot hatch backs like polo or i20. Lastly it is totally a different segment-a mini SUV or a crossover between a car and suv. Overall i will give 9/10 for the suv.   Areas of improvement: - The company should put in cruise control, climatic control a/c, foldable mirrors for the SUV, The boot door of the SUV should be opened sidewards rather than upwards with the stepney blaced on the boot door. The mirror adjustment switch should be placed on the door rather than under the hand break. But as a whole it is the best mini suv at present in the Indian market. The company should open up service centers to support the after sales service with the spare parts price ecconomical so that the buyers of this SUV dont feel disappointed ever when they are motoring with DUSTER.   Regards Dinesh G A Proud Duster Owner.
