Renault Duster AWD launched at Rs 11.89 lakh

Renault Duster AWD comes in two variants coupled with the 108bhp 1.5-litre diesel motor.

Renault has launched the all-wheel-drive (AWD) Duster in India at Rs 11.89 lakh The new Duster gets a few cosmetic updates too.

The most important change, the all-wheel-drive system, gets three modes – two-wheel drive, auto and four-wheel lock, and these can be changed on the go. The other highlight on the Duster AWD is an all-wheel independent multi-link suspension as opposed to the non-independent torsion beam setup in the front-wheel-drive car. Also on offer is Renault’s Electronic Torque control system, which helps distribute torque among all the wheels and allows torque balance at high speeds.

Other changes include smoked-grey alloy wheels, darkened headlamp clusters and matte black B-pillars, and ‘AWD’ and 4x4 badging. On the inside, there's a new three-pod instrument cluster, a new three-spoke steering wheel, dual-tone grey and red seats, and soft-touch plastics on the upper portion of the new dual-tone, and a black and grey dashboard.

Two variants are on offer, the base RXL variant priced at Rs 11.89 lakh while the top-end RXZ is priced at Rs 12.99 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). 

The Renault Duster AWD comes with the same 108.5bhp 1.5-litre diesel motor as in the FWD RxZ variant, and is coupled to the same six-speed manual gearbox.
