2016 Renault Duster
There is absolutely no denying in accepting the fact that Renault made the compact SUV segment popular after they introduced the Duster. The Duster also happens to be the sole product which has helped this French automaker to establish themselves in the Indian market. As far as the particular SUV is concerned since its launch back in the year 2012 as time passed other auto manufacturers started launching their own products which quickly became popular and honestly affected the sales of now ageing Duster.
So Renault decided to introduce a facelift Duster to the scene and they what could be the better stage other than 2016 Auto Expo. Renault did take the wraps off the facelift Duster and although the cosmetic upgrades made to the compact SUV are subtle but atleast it has given the existing compact SUV a new lease of life.
However the new facelift Duster is not about cosmetic upgrades it also does get a new AMT transmission as well. So now the Duster facelift is available with both the 6 speed manual as well as the newly introduced AMT gearbox. As far as the drivetrain are concerned the Renault Duster remains to be powered by the same 1.5 Litre diesel K9K diesel unit which definitely has been retuned for better refinement and efficiency.
