Only yesterday, we reported that the much awaited Renault Duster facelift has arrived and now, here are more official pics and details of the new car.
As we said earlier, the Renault Duster facelift is nothing but a re-badged Dacia Duster facelift, with the only differences lying in the badges and the front grille.
As with the Dacia Duster facelift, the Renault iteration gets a new grille, double-optic headlights with DRLs, Duster branded roof rails, “castellated nameplate trim”, chrome tipped exhaust, updated taillamps motif, Comet Grey body color and a new set of alloy wheels. The Renault Duster facelift now rides on 16-inch wheels that come painted in a Dark Metal shade.
On the inside, the car gets an updated centre console, a revised instrument binnacle and a list of new features that includes:
- Cruise control and speed limiter
- Rear park assist
- Electronic Stability Control
- Dual front airbags fitted as standard
Unlike what we expected, the Renault Duster facelift haven’t yet received the 1.2-liter turbo petrol engine option that is available with the Dacia Duster facelift. However, the current set of engines now boast of reduced NVH levels and following is what Renault has to say on this aspect-
Engines mated to the six-speed manual gearbox also benefit from improved acoustics at high speed; the noise level at 130 kph in New Renault Duster is comparable to that at 90 kph on the previous version.
It is pretty much for sure that the new Renault Duster facelift is headed to India and we expect to see the refreshed car at the upcoming 2014 Indian Auto Expo.
