Renault has launched the all-new Duster in India. The new Renaut Duster starts at INR 7,99,990 and comes with new features and technological advancements. The iconic new Renault Duster looks bolder with the new tri-winged full chrome grille, new dual tone body colour front bumper which features muscular skid plates, new signature projector headlamps with LED DRLs that sync perfectly with the dominating and broad hood. The R16 Everest Diamond Cut alloy wheels enhance the commanding look of the iconic Duster. The new Duster offers a high ground clearance of 205 mm while the AWD version offers a ground clearance of 210 mm. The Kayak roof rails, body coloured ORVM, matte black tailgate embellisher and waterfall LED tail lamps further accentuate its dynamic stance. The new edition also offers two new exterior body colour options for customers to choose from – ‘Caspian Blue’ and ‘Mahogany Brown’.
The Midnight black interiors give the cabin of the Duster a completely new look and feel. The premium blue glazed seats lend a classy touch. The interiors deliver an engaging experience with the fully integrated 17.64 cm touchscreen MediaNAV Evolution that comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, voice recognition and EcoGuide–a system that monitors driving patterns and provides guidelines to improve efficiency. The new Duster offers Arkamys with 4 speakers and new 2 front tweeters for enhanced sound output.
