    by Jagdev Kalsi on Wednesday, Jul 17 2019

    2019 Renault Duster facelift has been launched in India with prices starting from Rs 8 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The updated model features cosmetic changes and revisions to its features list. The Duster now comes in 4 variants and continues to be powered by the existing engine and transmission options.

    Specifications and variant-wise powertrain availability


    Note: Tables for standard features and variant-wise features, and information regarding exterior colour options is at the end of the report.


    2019 Duster -- Petrol variants explained

    If you’re planning to buy the petrol Duster with manual transmission, RXE is the most value for money variant. There’s just one variant with the petrol-automatic powertrain -- RXS (O). So, you don’t have any choice if petrol-auto is the powertrain of you want. Thankfully, the RXS (O) variant justifies the incremental price you have to pay for it over the RXE variant with petrol-manual powertrain.



    2019 Duster -- Diesel variants explained

    If you find the diesel Duster to be more suitable for your mileage, then you can buy it with a manual transmission in any variant but RXS (110PS), as there are better alternatives for it either priced lower or higher.

    Unfortunately, like in the petrol’s case, the diesel-powered automatic Duster also comes in just one variant -- RXZ. But it’s priced attractively over its manual counterpart, and it will be sensible to pick it over its manual version if you can stretch your budget.

    There’s no variant choice in the case of AWD Duster as well, which can be had in just the RXS (O) variant. It will be sensible to spend extra for this drivetrain only of you tackle slippery/muddy/sandy conditions frequently since it’s not a hardcore off-road vehicle.



    Key Standard Features


    Exterior colour options: The 2019 Duster is available in 7 exterior colour options: blue, dark brown, orange, silver, grey bronze and white. Blue and dark brown have replaced red and brown exterior colours.
