Editorial Test Drive Review of Renault Duster

2016 New Renault Duster Vs Old Renault Duster


Renault has recently showcased its new facelift of Duster at the Auto Expo Event 2016 held at Greater Noida. From the beginning itself, Duster looks very old and now it looks even more old compared to its similar other vehicles in its segment. So, Renault worked a lot in the old Duster and brought its facelift at the event which might help to reach even better because competition has been increased with the arrival of many SUV’s into Indian roads.

Exterior Upgrades


At the event, Renault unveiled its facelift in new Cayenne Orange Color looking very attractive. While seeing from the front, the headlamps seems to have same shape like the old Duster but the elements inside the car has been changed along with the absence of circles inside. Next to that, the vehicle gets a revised radiator grille from three thinner slats to two thick slats which could improve the size of the Renault logo. Moving to the side profile of the Renault Duster facelift, the changes has been performed on the rims, roof rail as well as Outside Rear View Mirror. The facelift gets proper position for the electrically foldable ORVM controls and they are not kept below the handbrake. Its ORVMs along with an integrated blinkers and a carbon fibre finish enhances the appearance of the new Duster. It is to be proved that the vehicle enters into the market with better sense having neutral silver treatments. A new jumbo size roof rails with Duster branding adds more sportiveness to the car. The rear appearance of the Renault Duster 2016 is well incorporated with a very different tail lamps of same size seen on the old car but having waterfall LED strip, a fresh bumper, a larger skid plate and two parking sensors. But the old Duster has three reverse parking sensors but now it gets modified.

Interior Upgrades


When it is talking about its interior section, the new Duster 2016 gets a dashboard with little changes mainly at the center fascia. The old steering has been improved with silver on all three spokes in various choice of color options as per the requirements. It gives a neat look with the name Duster stamped on the left hand side at the front and the center fascia comes with a piano black finishing which seems to be really superb. The hazard light and central locking switches inside the cabin are positioned properly and the air vents are decorated in a dark pink ring. Among the other changes, the new Duster has more neutral chrome rings with the touch screen in action and its head unit boasts a reversing camera with guidelines is awesome. This vehicle has a revised recirculation slider knob and climate control option also enters into the car. It is to be noted that only the 2WD is at the 12 o’clock position l.e. ‘auto’ moved down on the right. The new Renault Duster 2016 will soon be available with an Automatic transmission option but it would not be a torque converter. Manual Mode will also be available and the center console of the car is provided in silver color looking very decent. In this new facelift, the driver is offered with an armrest especially for himself and there is no big door handle on the rear door pads. The new Duster has the boot storage capacity like the old vehicle but now it is possible to keep the spare wheel inside the car which would definitely be more convenient. In addition to all, the facelifted Duster is offered with an upgraded ‘T4 Electrical and Electronics’ architecture along with a new ‘CM010’ engine compartment. Soon, the new Renault Duster will be on sale satisfying the requirements of the people.

Review on Renault Duster AWD launched in 2014

 

For a short time, Duster has made the Renault to revolve around  as the best selling SUV in the country. However it lacks a little bit in terms of hardware that is much needed to tackle the rough stuff.AWD thus bridges the gap. Also the debut of Duster AWD as the four wheel drive is entirely a new production in its SUV lineup.

Exterior Styling:

There are no much changes that are  made at the exterior portion. Then what makes it unique from its predecessor? The answer lies in the "AWD badging" and the 4*4 moniker at the back. Apart from this   AWD gets the darkened headlamps clusters, matte black B-pillars found on the RxZ trim and the ash colored alloy wheels. Further it gives a rough and rugged look that further enhances the appearance of SUV.

Interior Design:

When it comes with the interior design ,it is built with the sense of premium and standard quality.Dual toned black and grey dashboard that is being built with the soft touch plastics is set to comprise of three-spoke steering wheel and three-pod instrument cluster. The cluster features instantaneous fuel consumption as well. The seats are dual tone grey and red. Moreover, front seats are more comfortable and the boot space is spacious enough to accomodate more luggage. Thus comforts will be felt especially over the long trips. There is a provision of ECO mode, with which one can reduce the fuel consumption by 10%. Concerning  the safety features, ABS and EBD and brake assist are being provided. The implementation of   i- Drive technology brings in many class leading features that will lead to unmatched performance and enhanced fuel efficiency.

Ride and Handling:

With the new electronically controlled 4*4 system, and independent suspension at all four corners are the prominent features of Duster AWD. Further, apparent changes are made with the clutch that is set to be lighter from that of the standard, thus found to be ease while changing the gear level. Also, the gear ratios has been shortened to 4*4,thus you can notice a great difference that even at the first gear you would go at the speed of 30kph.At the same time, whenever there is a need to downshift from third to second, that can tackled easily with the third leave itself. This system even suits the off-road trail in a such a way that helps you to crawl easily down the steeper slopes. With the aid of traction control, one can drive through the slippery areas without getting panic. Even with the areas that held with the tight traffic can be easily endured with the Duster 4*4. Lets now concentrate on the AWD, that is all wheel drive. Actually there are three modes on the AWD selector knob-2WD,Auto and Lock.2WD focus only on the permanent front-wheel driven.In case if there is loss of traction found at the front wheels, then Auto comes in to picture by supplying power to the rear wheels. Lock mode keeps the hardware in 4*4 mode to be maintained around 60kmph.Once this level is reached, the mode gets shifted back to the Auto mode. With the high ground clearance that measures up to 205 mm,is really experienced while driving through the rough stuff.Overall,the Duster 4*4 can handle all such soft,slippery,wet climatic conditions situations,thus it is worth to be called as a "rock-crawler".As mentioned before,the independent suspension at the four ends,tends to improve the riding quality best-in-class

Verdict:

With such an excellent ride quality,it costs at Rs 11,89,499 for RxL variant and Rs 12,99,499 for the RxZ variant(Delhi,ex-showroom).And for adventurous folks,this SUV will suit the best. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Renault Duster Specifications

"The prime specs of Renault Duster are listed here. The overall length, width of the car should give you an idea about parking space it require. The ground clearance (lowest part of the car to the ground) will give you the measure of water wading capability and confidence of Duster's capability to run over potholes and speed breakers. However GC (ground clearance) won't tell everything. Other important factors like approach angle, breakover angle and departure angle is required to assess the cars' ability to run in rained indian roads and light off road tracks.Engine specs of Duster are also listed here. With the power (in bhp) and torque (Nm) figures the most important ratios - power to weight ratio of Duster and torque to weight ratio. The displacement (in cc) is the measure of cubic capacity of the engine. Earlier there was a notion, larger engines produce more power and torque however with the invention of advanced technologies this is no longer true."

My test drive experience

By gopik

Good: Better Road grips

Bad: Fit and finish not good

I went for a test drive.The performance is really a mind-blowing one,the steering is so smooth to handle with which one acquire the confidence over the drive.Good road grip too.Initially the gearbox is too hard to take the gear shifts but later on,it is very easy.But when it comes with the interior the fit and finish is not so good also the quality of the plastic that is being used is very poor


Better choice for off-roading capabilities

By ravi khadsondnai

Good: Good handling

Bad: Simple interior

The mileage that I got upto 100kms is about 11kmpl regardless of the driving areas.I hope it will be increased after the next two services.The driving experience is really amazing and enjoyable.But the interiors design is so simple that doesnot suit the SUV like this,it could be improved to a greater extent.
