Renault has launched a petrol automatic variant of the Duster SUV in India. The Duster has always been a strong seller for the French car maker in India, but the diesel variant has been the mainstay of the Duster lineup. However, Renault now feels that there is sufficient demand for petrol variants. In order to bolster the Duster petrol lineup, Renault has introduced the Duster petrol automatic variant equipped with a CVT mated to a 1.5 L petrol. Renault Duster Petrol Automatic has been launched Rs. 10.32 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Read on to know more about the new Renault Duster Petrol CVT price, mileage and specifications.

Along with the introduction of the new petrol CVT variant, Renault has also added a new ‘Fiery Red’ colour to the Duster lineup. Also, the 1.5 L petrol engine powering the Duster automatic petrol has replaced the 1.6 L Petrol entirely. Which means even the petrol manual variants of the Duster are now powered by the 106 PS 1.5 L Petrol engine as well.

  1. Well, I just booked the car . According to the sales person it has two airbags, touch screen( without GPS) , Alloy wheel apart from the one mentioned above .

  2. AMT will soon become a regular feature in cars, till then lets enjoy it in selected variants. Duster has already taken the mini-suv segment by storm and now with AMT control it suits both hill terrains and urban roads exceptionally well. One more good reason to prefer duster over suv’s.

  3. Duster has really good safety features like ABS, dual front air bags, EBD with brake assist that complement its superb built features for a much smoother and safer drive.

  4. I highly recommend Duster to those who are looking for a true suv that is equipped with absolute great suv features.

  5. I am planning to buy duster this year. I am keeping a track of every new variant in duster coming out now and then and unknowingly I have developed a sort of curiosity about what Renault will bring in its next variant. Seems like duster is just going evolve and evolve, and if I want to buy it I will have to shortlist the features so I can reach up to the desirable variant of the duster.

  6. A petrol variant in an automatic transmission and a CVT gearbox clubbed together, sums up how fiercely the duster is overthrowing its competitors in the suv segment!

  7. Xtronic ENGINE!!! only god, and then renault officials might be knowing what it means? But what caught my attention is the petrol variant with automatic transmission, feel smooth. But it gets thrilled when it is equipped with the duster, the real beast on the adventure. What a combination!!!

  8. Duster was always an suv in limelight. Thanks to its powerful dCi engine that delivers an exceptional power and performance. The petrol automatic variant has filled the void of buyers who were initially reluctant to buy for reasons.

  9. Duster is a suv of the new generation. At least it broke the stereotype of roads clogged with Marutis’ and Tatas mostly.
