Robust, spacious and equipped to go further, the popular Renault Duster is a force to be reckoned with within the B-SUV segment, with features and accolades to prove this, according to Renault South-Africa.
The Renault Duster remains one of the most popular SUV models within its segment. Since the introduction of the first generation of the Duster model in 2013, over 21 000 vehicles have been sold in South Africa, and more than two million units have been sold worldwide.
With a ground clearance of 210mm, the Duster is more than capable of conquering any terrain with absolute ease. This formidable vehicle is not only built for adventure but is really practical too with a super-spacious 478 litre boot.
Driving pleasure is guaranteed in the Renault Duster, with a handsfree card with an auto-lock facility, and a convenient START-STOP button to get the vehicle on the move, depending on the model in the range.
The Duster is visually pleasing, with its strong, powerful lines that is enhanced by 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels with signature C-shaped daytime running lights. Geared to harness the spirit of adventure, this SUV boasts features such as Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control, and an innovative 4×4 monitor to help assess the pitch and roll angles of this SUV at any given time.
Other remarkable features include MediaNAV, a reverse camera, blind spot warning, park distance control and climate control. The 4 x 4 derivative elevates the Duster range offering 4 x 4 capabilities of the highest level, whilst the newly launched Duster TechRoad model presents an innovative proposition.
Safety is paramount in the Renault Duster, which is equipped with up to six airbags, EBA, Electronic Stability Control and ABS brakes. Not only is the Duster powerful and capable, but it’s really economical too, with three engine options available, namely a 1.6 litre 16 Valve model and two versions of the 1.5 dCi turbo diesel engine.
With a 50L petrol tank and stingy fuel consumption, 4.8 litre per 100km as claimed by the manufacturer, the Duster is designed to take on the open road frugally.
Peace of mind is part of the package with the Duster that comes with a standard three-year or 45 000km Service Plan and a five-year or 150 000km Warranty.
And if that’s not enough to warrant giving the Renault Duster a second or even a third look, consider this accolade too:
The Renault Duster 1.5 dCi EDC 4×2 TechRoad won its category (Diesel Turbo 1300cc – 2000cc) in the 2019 WesBank Fuel Economy Tour. The Renault Duster, according to the French manufacturer, certainly provides a unique offering to the South African automotive market.
