The car is priced between ₹10.49 lakh and ₹13.59 lakh (ex-showroom). The company said it would also continue to offer the SUV with the existing 1.5-litre petrol engine, with three trims priced at ₹8.59 lakh, ₹9.39 lakh, and ₹9.99 lakh (all prices ex-showroom). There are no diesel engines on offer on Duster.
The BS-VI compliant generates 156 PS of power with manual trims delivering fuel efficiency of 16.5 kmpl. On the other hand, the CVT version returns a fuel efficiency of 16.42 kmpl. The 1.3-litre Turbo Petrol engine is an advanced, high-power, turbocharged, BS-VI compliant engine that offers best-in-class power.
The car comes with 6-speed Manual Transmission and X-Tronic CVT gear shift with a seven-speed manual mode. The 6-Speed manual gearbox comes with a high level of shift quality and a good level of efficiency. The new powertrains are not only suited for city drive but capable of safe drive on highways and hilly roads with the help of the Electronic Stability Program and Hill-start Assist features, the company said.
The new Duster now comes with a remote Pre-Cooling function, which allows the customers to switch on the engine and start the air conditioning even before entering the car with the key fob.
The iconic Renault Duster looks bolder with the crimson red accents on the front grille, tailgate, roof rails, and fog lamp cover, which complements the Turbo petrol engine inside.
