The Renault Duster has been one of the biggest game changers in Indian automotive history. It is essentially a crossover vehicle, which means its small like a hatch, rides like a sedan and has qualities of an SUV. The car is based on the Dacia Duster and was launched in India in 2012. The car competes with the Tata Safari and Mahindra Scorpio even though they are mid size SUVs. There are three engine variants available in many trim levels and both petrol and diesel engines.
The Duster looks very promising as a SUV, but then again it has got small dimensions. However the long wide front hood and massive wheel arches make the Duster look very muscular and big. It has got a great ground clearance of 210mm, which also adds to its SUV charm. The Duster also has got a nice front grille and large bumpers and then the tyres are also quite decently sized. At first glance anyone would classify it as a SUV, but it is actually not.

Renault duster was not even on my mind when I set out to buy a car. I was fixated on buying maruti or Hyundai but S cross and Creta were not the best of options because on didn’t look that good and the other one was too costly. I then test drove duster awd and I was pretty surprised how good it was! I took another test drive just to be sure about my decision, this time with my family. We loved the car. I drive to drop my children, to go to office and sometimes for short business trips. it is really affordable and even for a diesel car it gives so much driving pleasure. Thrilled to have bought this car. Thank you Renault for this awesome SUV with so many features and the offroading capabilities.

It was a smart decision to buy this car since I was looking for a strong SUV that not only looks good but is fuel efficient and sturdy enough to handle bad roads. The interiors are also very attractive and actually the driving and handling is what impressed me more. The driver seat is very comfortable and adjustable and so is the steering. The space in the cabin is ample and you can carry as much luggage as you want since the trunk space is really big. As a family car also it is very convenient. Sometimes my wife also drives it and she really likes the feeling. The engine is powerful and does not rumble even at high speeds. Good car for those looking for a cost effective and feature rich SUV.

The Duster AWD is much better than the 2WD because the interiors have been reworked and the features like music system, Bluetooth connectivity, a good dashboard have been added and this makes the car a premium car because there is nothing lacking. There are alloy wheels, accessories like upholstery and cushions along with different colored matting available. I personalized my Duster with all black interiors and it looks really strong and amazing. So happy that Renault brought this 4WD enabled AWD variant of Duster. For daily commute of 20km the car is so comfortable and low maintenance. In this price range, Duster is the best SUV in the market.

Overall the duster is fun to drive and has a commanding height when in traffic. The 85bhp engine is a bit sluggish on initial pick; I guess it is due to Renault having set the gear ratios for a good fuel mileage. Once it picks up its powerful. The interiors are basic. The beige cloth seats tend to get dirty very fast. The stereo is simple to use and has good speakers. The area where you insert the USB stick is too close to the light stalks (light stick...on left hand side of the steering wheel), resulting in the driver hand hitting it; I guess it was designed for a left hand drive controls. Outside smell tends to come in slightly or a bit more (based on how strong the smell is outside) even if the fresh air vent is closed. The AC is comfortable; though the round knob which has positions to circulate the air is very crude in terms of rotating it...a bit hard and crude (funny sounds come from inside the dashboard). For rear passengers who tend to place their elbow on the arm rest results in the rear power window button getting pressed with the elbow ( the rear power window switch is fixed where the elbow rests on the arm rest); this is very irritating and a matter of concern which Renault needs to look into asap. The single horn is too weak to draw immediate attention. The bumper fog lights heat up and crack with the rain water splashing onto them. Renault needs to look at this too asap. The gear stick movement tends to make a shifting sound; a bit crude. The clutch is a bit hard and driver foot tends to get tired if over an hour in traffic. Still waiting for a service reminder and someone to pursue offering me extended warranty. These are my personal opinions of the vehicle; and are by no means stated in a complaining tone. An honest feedback which should be taken well by Renault.

The killer vehicle has caught the mood of the buyer spot on, young Indian buyer are looking for a style, power full, all terrain, very fuel efficient and VFM car like comfort and a safe transport mood. Duster has fulfilled the vacuum in the great Indian car bazar.
