The Renault Duster is now available at a huge discount. With up to 1.3 Lakh benefits, it might be the right time to buy the compact SUV.
The Renault Duster is one of the most powerful SUVs in its segment and now it is more affordable than ever. The price of the compact SUV starts at Rs 9.86 Lakh and goes up to Rs 14.25 Lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It comes in multiple variants (while Renault Duster RXS is the base model, the Renault Duster RXZ Turbo CVT is the top variant). Now, you can get the tough vehicle with discounts of up to Rs 1.3 lakh. The company is offering a massive discount i.e. up to 1.3 lakh benefits (50K cash + 50K exchange + 30K corporate).
In terms of engine and transmission, the Renault Duster offers two engine options – a 1.5-litre petrol unit (106PS/ 142Nm) + 5-speed MT and a 1.3-litre turbo-petrol motor (156PS/ 254Nm) + 6-speed MT + optional 7-step CVT. While the standard Duster comes in two variants (RXS and RXZ), the Duster Turbo comes in three options (RXE, RXS, and RXZ). It comes with projector headlamps with DRLs, engine idle-stop/start, and cabin cooling (with the key fob).
In terms of seating capacity, the Renault Duster can accommodate up to five people. It has been designed to cater to the needs of Indian customers. For safety, the company has added dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, and front seatbelt reminders. Additional features on the powerful SUV include a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system (with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), auto climate control (with rear AC vents), and a 6-speaker Arkamys sound system.
Overall, the Renault Duster is a tough SUV that can handle all kinds of terrain. It is the original compact SUV that created an entirely new category when the cult SUV was launched in 2012. Now, it is competing with the likes of Skoda Kushaq, MG Astor, Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross, Volkswagen Taigun, and even Mahindra Scorpio. While its market share has almost remained unchanged in last year, it has seen a 19.0% decline in the YoY sales by October 2021. However, it has seen a 21.6% increase in sales in last month (compared to September). With the huge discount, this is the right time to purchase the SUV that offers time-tested durability and bullet-proof mechanicals. Renault also has a significant presence in the country, thanks to over 500 dealerships.
