With more than two million cars sold globally, the Renault Duster has been completely revamped six years after its original release. The All-New Renault Duster boasts all-new exterior styling delivering a distinctly assertive and robust look. The car offers a high-quality, totally redesigned interior for a comfortable and user-friendly cabin experience.
Equipped with new driving aids and new equipment, the All-New Duster is a genuine SUV which is both versatile and comfortable for everyday driving.
The original Renault Duster was designed and engineered to adeptly master tough road conditions, but in an unpretentious form. The Duster has proved to be extremely popular in the SA market with in excess of 16,500 units sold to date since its initial launch.
The All-New Renault Duster builds on and reinforces the Duster’s existing strengths, but the renowned DNA of the Duster remains at the heart, i.e. an extremely capable SUV, which is tough, simple and reliable, yet accessible based on the value proposition.
The All-New Renault Duster 4×4’s robust and particularly assertive styling highlights its SUV pedigree. Visually more muscular, the design tone is set by the more aggressive lines, and a more expressive front and wider rear, heightening the impression of stability. The Duster’s tough stance is emphasized by its bold, more horizontal lines, new 16” wheels ensuring a more assertive profile, new more prominent aluminium roof bars, and front and rear skid plates that support its adventurer credentials. The chrome trim of the grille, alongside a raised waistline and the powerful C-shaped light signature complete the powerful stance of the New Duster.
Its muscular exterior is matched by its relentless 4×4 capability. The New Renault Duster now has even greater off-road capabilities evident by the class-leading ground clearance of 210mm, with noteworthy approach and departure angles of 30° high approach and 34° departure angles respectively, deeming it suited for all terrain driving.
CLASS-LEADING SPACE AND COMFORT
The interior of the All-New Renault Duster has been completely re-designed, marked by a spacious and passenger friendly cabin. The upholstery features a high-quality finish, as does the dashboard, where particular emphasis has been placed on ergonomic design.
Optimized travelling comfort is further ensured by the newly designed and more enveloping seats, with careful attention to the materials, fit and finish.
Numerous clever stowage spaces are easily accessible with improved accessibility of controls, and amongst others, an enhanced Multimedia experience.
The New Duster also offers a modular interior layout to easily adapt to needs, with the rear bench seat featuring a 1/3 – 2/3 split-fold function, while the boot boasts best-in-class loading capacity of up to 478L.
IMPROVED QUALITY AND HIGH-END EQUIPMENT
The All-New Renault Duster 4×4 offers a host of state of the art equipment to facilitate stress-free everyday driving, including on-board GPS Navigation. Now with Smartphone mirror compatibility, today’s top contenders are Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto.
Each provides functionality of your phone’s system that runs on your car’s computer interface, allowing drivers and passengers to control music, navigate, and communicate by way of voice commands and the car’s manual controls.
In theory, better apps mean safer driving; if you don’t need to access your phone, you can better focus on driving.
Blind Spot warning detects any obscured vehicles and convenient automatic headlights activate automatically without the driver needing to press a manual switch.
While the Automatic Climate Control, Speed Limiter and Cruise Control functions provide superb driving support on the open road.
The Renault Duster 4×4 is distinguished through its range of high-class equipment to enhance the vehicle’s off-road prowess, such as Hill Descent Control, enabling smooth descent of hills without use of the brake. A MultiView Camera allows for easy visibility of the front, rear or side terrain, triggered by the reverse gear or by a simple touch of the dedicated button, while the innovative 4×4 monitor allows one to even check the pitch and roll angles of the Duster at any given time.
With the Transmission Mode Selector available on the 4×4 Model, the driver is able to switch between 3 driving modes: 2WD Mode where the engine torque is distributed to the front wheels, Automatic Mode allowing distribution of engine torque over the 4 wheels or Lock Mode for engine torque distribution to all four wheels.
The All-New Duster offers a multitude of advanced active and passive safety technology as standard across the range, such as ABS[Anti-Lock Braking System] with EBD [Electronic Brake Force Distribution] in conjunction with EBA[Emergency Brake Assist], making it possible to maintain control over the trajectory in the event of heavy braking.
Rear Park Distance Controlenables easier parking manoeuvres by warning the driver of obstacles situated behind the vehicle by a sequence of beeps which speed up the closer you are to them. In the 4×4 model, Hill Descent Control facilitates a controlled hill descent in rough terrain, without brake input from the driver.
POWERED TO GO FURTHER
The All-New Renault Duster 4×4 is powered by a 1.5 dCi engine mated with a 6-speed manual gearbox, for greater driving comfort and pleasure. Upshifting is fast and smooth, with no jerking or loss in acceleration. The Duster 4×4 Model boasts phenomenal fuel consumption from only 5.2L/100km, and yields outputs of 80kW with 260Nm of torque and contained CO2 emissions of 138g/km.
PEACE OF MIND COMES STANDARD
As is standard across Renault’s entire product range, the All-New Renault Duster Model range comes standard with a 5-year/150 000km mechanical warranty and a 6-year anti-corrosion warranty. Services take place at 15 000km intervals, and a standard 3-year/45000km service plan applies.
The All-New Renault Duster 4×4 has a bold personality, both inside and out, and is now even better equipped to be a segment breaker.
