In June this year, Renault celebrated the sales figure of one lakh units of its compact SUV, the Duster, in less than two years of introduction. Renault released a special One Lakh Limited Edition of the compact SUV to celebrate this occasion.
This month, Renault celebrates another feat as Duster completes two years in the country. Guess how has the company decided to celebrate it?
Renault has introduced another special edition of the Duster to mark the SUVs second year in the country called Second Anniversary Special. Like the Adventure special, the new anniversary edition gets Amazon green exterior, neon interiors and a bold front armour. The special edition also gets smoked headlights and an all-round body cladding.
Besides the additional two year warranty, the anniversary special will also come with a four year roadside assistance and a ‘Gang of Dusters’ membership.
This is the third special edition of the Duster that the French manufacturer has introduced in three months, earlier being the Renault Duster Adventure special and the One Lakh Limited Edition.
Powering this new Duster is a 1.5-litre dCi engine that produces 85 bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. Power is transferred to wheels via a five speed manual transmission. The company claims fuel efficiency level of 20.5 kmpl out of this diesel motor.
The Second Anniversary Edition will come at a price tag of Rs 8.8 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and will be available till July 2014.
