Renault Duster or VW Vento

Looking for a diesel automatic car to use on bad roads on a daily basis and occasional out of town drive.

Renault Duster or VW Vento

I currently own a Ford Fiesta (Classic) diesel, and am considering the Renault Duster and VW Vento as next options. Apart from travelling to office daily on bad roads in Bengaluru, I will be travelling to my home town which is 350km away, once a month. I do go on family trips every two months. What is your suggestion? Will switching to the Duster be worth it? Or will the Vento be more suitable? I am looking for a diesel, auto gearbox-equipped car.

AAA Actually, the Duster automatic perfectly suits your purpose, because it is one of the best vehicles in the market to tackle bad roads, thanks to its outstanding suspension and ride quality. It’s a great highway cruiser as well, thanks to the punchy 1.5 diesel and tall sixth gear, which allows for easy cruising. The AMT gearbox isn’t very quick to respond and gearshifts are a bit slow, but for relaxed driving, it does the job.
