More spec for refreshed Renault Duster


Having benefitted from a minor facelift last year, which also saw production moving from India to Romania, Renault has given its popular Duster range a second round of revisions with upgraded spec and new interior trim.

While aesthetic changes are limited to new front and rear light clusters as well as black alloy wheels, the centre console has been redesigned with a seven-inch MediaNav touchscreen standard on all models.

Still offered in a choice of two trim levels, the base Expression now gains rear electric windows while cruise control and auto lock doors are fitted across the range. In addition, the flagship Dynmaqiue receives a reverse camera and satellite navigation with leather trim being optional.

The Duster however remains unchanged up front with power still coming from a 1.6-litre petrol engine making 77 kW and 145 N.m of torque, or die top selling 1.5 dCi with 80 kW and 240 N.m. Although a six-speed EDC transmission recently became available in Europe, South African models will once again make do with either a five-speed manual or, in the case of a diesel, a six-speed manual box with the latter again offered in front or four-wheel drive.

A five year / 100 000 km warranty and three year / 45 000 km service plan is standard across the range.
