    Renault Duster is 4384mm long, 1813mm wide, 1669mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2673mm. A wider body normally results in better shoulder room and a higher roof makes ingress & egress easier. A longer wheelbase usually results in more cabin space. It has a boot space of 400 litre. A larger boot allows you to carry more luggage. Duster has a 210mm ground clearance, it rides on 215/65 R16 tyres size and has 50 litres fuel tank capacity.

    • Nissan Kicks has an overall length of 4384mm, which makes it the longest car in the segment. It is 24mm longer than the Duster.
    • Renault Duster is the widest car in the segment.
    • Renault Duster is the tallest car in the segment.
    • Renault Duster has a wheelbase of 2673mm, it is the longest wheelbase in the segment and on par with the Nissan Kicks.
    • Renault Duster has the biggest boot space in the segment. It has 75-lt more boot space than the Duster. 
    • Nissan Kicks' ground clearance of 210mm is the best in the segment and 5mm better than the Duster’s 205mm ground clearance.

    Amongst all the C-segment SUVs, Nissan Kicks has the best ground clearance, so it is the best car to drive on uneven roads. While the S-Cross doesn’t impress with its dimensions or engine performance, they’re satisfactory considering its lower price tag. But it has the best mileage figures in the segment.

    Renault Duster has the biggest boot in the segment, so it can carry maximum luggage. Despite its age, the Duster comes across as a competent car, at least in terms of dimensions. It can still hold its own against the rivals with its widest body, longest wheelbase and the biggest boot space. Its normal petrol engine also has respectable torque output compared to the normal petrol engines among C segment SUVs. And its turbo petrol engine has class-leading specs too.

    All things considered, the Duster may not deter a Seltos or Creta buyer with its old styling. But, it comes across as a potent rival for the S-Cross as it has competent engine options, better ground clearance, phenomenal road presence and a bigger cabin and boot. The Duster is worth a look if you’re not too bothered by its lower mileage figures.
