The engine line-up stays the same as before - a 1.5-litre diesel and a 1.6-litre petrol. The diesel is available in two configurations 84bhp and 200Nm and 108bhp and 240Nm while the petrol engine produces 102bhp and 145Nm of torque. The 84bhp diesel and the petrol engine have been mated to a five-speed manual while the 108bhp diesel has been mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
The Duster is also offered with the shift-on-fly all-wheel-drive option along with the standard front-wheel-drive setup. The most important addition to the new Duster is the automated-manual six-speed gearbox that is available with the 108bhp setup. The AWD though, is not being offered with the AMT transmission.
The new Renault Duster gets an updated feature list. The fully loaded RXZ variant gets a touch-screen infotainment system with steering mounted controls, cruise control, automatic climate control and a height adjustable driving seat with lumbar support. The wing mirrors are electrically adjustable but not retractable and get a reverse parking camera with guidance. Door handles and wing mirrors are body coloured for the RXL and RXS variants while the RXZ gets chrome exterior door handles. Headlamps are conventional with fog lamps being offered from the RXL variant while LED tail lamps are standard except for the diesel base variant.
On the safety front, ABS with EBD is being offered on all variants except the base diesel. While RXL and RXS get driver airbag only, the RXZ is offered with dual front airbags. ISOFIX child-seat mounting points are standard on the Duster.
The 1461 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 17 kmpl in city and 19 kmpl on highways, while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 11 kmpl on urban roads and 13 kmpl and freeways, respectively.
The Duster competes primarily with the Hyundai Creta, the Nissan Terrano and the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross. It has a better ride and handling package as compared to the Creta and looks its part as an SUV when compared to the S-Cross. The Creta, on the other hand, scores on interior quality, fit and finish and the features list. With the AMT being offered with the mid RXL variant, Renault has attempted to entice automatic SUV aspirants. The shift-on-fly all-wheel-drive still remains the USP along with the ride and handling for the Duster.
