With the facelift, Renault will also be introducing a new 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission on the Duster. This transmission, which will likely get a low ratio mode, has been dubbed as the Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) system. This autobox will only be offered with the 1.5-litre dCi diesel engine which develops 110 PS of max power. However, Renault India will only offer this setup in the 2WD version of the Duster, at least at launch. The 1.5-liter diesel mill will also be available with 86 PS state of tune.

    Excellent, EDC with AMT will be quite a catch. If they are bringing it in petrol as of now, even then it will be highly appreciated. the need for amt is steadily growing.

    When is Renault Duster Diesel Automatic being Planned for launch… Please LAUNCH soon… We are waiting.. And are excited about this NEWS…Renault should launch Duster Diesel Automatic Immediately in September ahead of Festive season, to cash on… There is immense interest in Automatic and Hyundai Creta has reported over 30% bookings of Automatic version and they have made changes in their production plans accordingly, infact they were much surprised by the automatic requirement, having expected only 10% of the total bookings.. It means of the 32000 bookings Hyundai Creta has received 9000 bookings are for Automatic itself, which is a significant number and completely new opportunity ….The waiting period for Creta Automatic has gone upto 11 months as per the dealer I spoke to in Mumbai……!!!!!!
