Renault India has silently introduced the BS6-compliant Duster SUV in the Indian market. The Duster BS6 comes in three variants RXE, RXS and RXZ and the top-end model is priced at INR 9.99 lakh. It is based on the facelift version that was launched in July 2019. While the Duster diesel will not make the shift to BS6 emission regulations, the company is currently not offering the petrol CVT automatic variant. The 2020 Renault Duster petrol is powered by a BS6 compliant 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that is tuned to churn out 105 bhp and develops a peak torque of 142 Nm, and it comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard.
Renault is likely to introduce a new 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine in the Duster at a later date. This engine produces 153 BHP and 250 Nm of torque. This engine will sit at the top of the Duster BS6 line-up in India and will come paired with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT gearbox. Renault is yet to announce prices for the Duster 1.3 turbo-petrol. The SUV gets a chrome grille with revised headlamps that have L-shaped LED daytime running lights. It also has a new front bumper, black plastic cladding on the tailgate and dual-tone alloy wheels. The BS6 version gets a few changes to the interior.
