Renault Duster Expert Review

Renault Duster Gear Shifter/Gear Shifter Stalk

Nestling under the hood of our Renault Duster here is the new 154bhp/254Nm 1.3-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor with a six-speed manual gearbox. It’s also offered with a seven-speed CVT gearbox. While this mill is developed by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance in partnership with Daimler, it powers some of the cheaper Mercedes models, and can also be seen in the Nissan Kicks. There aren’t any diesels for the time being at least.

Renault Duster Left Front Three Quarter

Admittedly, there’s some nostalgia involved in shoving/twisting the key to crank the motor. And I have the new-age features to blame entirely for spoiling us with the button start option. But once alive, this petrol mill gives away a rather throaty note. Now, my first impression of shifting into first gear and rolling off the mark isn’t something I’d write home about, mainly because of the notchy gear lever action and the long throws to perform the gearshifts. 

Renault Duster Right Side View

But other than that, there’s ample low-end grunt to keep the Duster swaying beyond the 1,500rpm mark, which essentially takes care of most city crawling expectations. And once past that rpm, the turbo starts singing intensely as a surprisingly linear surge of power thrusts you ahead, prospectively until the 5,500rpm rev-limit. 

Renault Duster Left Rear Three Quarter

The short gear ratios make optimum use of the engine’s power band, allowing one to quickly work their way to the higher gears. Plus, quick overtakes can be actioned effortlessly, simply by either flexing some right foot muscle or if need be, downshifting a gear. As such, not only does it hit highway velocities rapidly, cruising at speeds of 100kmph in sixth gear is executed in just under the 2,000rpm mark. 

Renault Duster Left Side View

One of the undisputed strengths of the Duster lies in its effective ride and handling combo. It continues to offer a planted and flat ride, thanks to the sturdy chassis and prudent suspension setup swallowing most of what our roads can throw at it. The robustness displayed ups one’s confidence tremendously; a trait very few ‘cars’ can truly offer. Sure there is an underlying stiffness to the ride which is more prominent at slower speeds, but overall, the only let-down is the mild buzz on the steering wheel when you drive over any irregularities. 

Renault Duster Right Rear Three Quarter

The hydraulic power steering may be slow (3.75 turns from lock-lock) and heavy at slow speeds. But for those who love driving, it weighs up terrifically as speeds rise, and there’s enormous feedback coming in from the front wheels which allow you to flawlessly hold your line when zipping past those bends. Nevertheless, holding the steering firmly is recommended as it can surprise you with a strong kickback if the wheels catch an irregularity mid-corner.

Renault Duster Dashboard

For the record, the top-end RXZ trim we have here gets climate control, an Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatible infotainment system with a 6.9-inch touchscreen, a reverse camera, height-adjustable driver’s seat, start-stop technology, cruise control, audio switches on the steering column, and two 12V sockets at both ends of the cabin. Despite these being the bare-basic expectations in its class, the Duster just about meets it. Likewise, the dated cabin design seems lacklustre, plus the quality of plastic all across is of a tough/hard-wearing kind; one that’ll last the test of time. 

Renault Duster Front Row Seats

But it looks sincerely inferior to what rivals have to offer. Especially in terms of fit and finish. Sadly, the touchscreen system, too, is identical to what’s in the Kwid and Triber, which simply put, is unacceptable. I mean a hand-me-down from a top-end model works fine, but not the other way. Furthermore, ergonomics are unfavourable like, the driver’s seat height can only be adjusted by one step, there aren’t any rear door-pad pockets, the front power window controls are oddly placed, and the driver armrest severely restricts access when lowered. 

Renault Duster Second Row Seats

Just when I thought this road wouldn’t end, thankfully, the Duster crawls back into the game with thorough visibility via the large glass panes, brilliant headroom all over, and the wide rear bench. The front seats themselves are comfortable owing to the great overall support and well-padded cushioning. As regards the 475-litre boot, the tall ground clearance allows for easy access to the enclosure, and the boot space itself swells substantially with the rear bench folded down.

Renault Duster Front Passenger Airbag

In terms of safety features, there’s ABS with EBD and brake assist, rapid deceleration warning, an engine immobiliser, driver/front passenger airbags and seatbelt reminder, and reverse parking sensors with a camera. It also gets speed sensitive door locking, impact sensing door unlock, electronic stability program, hill start assist, rear defogger and wiper/washer.

Right Side View

If you like the ‘done and dusted’ appeal, the Duster is for you! Well, jokes apart, this Renault’s design language still makes it stand out. Take, for instance, the edgy silhouette with the rugged appeal that’s mostly due to the massively flared wheel-wells with massive rubber, or the fact that it-means-business as a result of the large contemporary fascia with a tall stance. While everything else in the segment tries to look rugged, the Duster can easily go down the beaten track like a pro, and still look handsome while at it.

Renault Duster Right Side View

The new petrol engine couldn’t have come into the Duster’s life at a better time. Yes, we agree that the ergonomics, fit and finish in some areas, the cabin design, and refinement can put you off. But for most of the part, it’s as robust as the ‘Hulk’, looks fairly handsome, is dynamically proven, and is the compact SUV to own if driving means the world to you. Moreover, with a price tag that ranges from Rs 13.20 to Rs 16.68 lakh (OTR Mumbai), it is priced substantially lower than its segment mates. Need we really say any more here?

Good: The Amt Renault Duster. this is work horse, it has many faces like, -Wife's car (new driver). -My everyday beat up car, I m a really rough driver and my busy schedule makes for an unpleasant driving style. But happily the duster takes in everything. -Family run about, it hauls every thing from veggies to equipment and parts. -Business tool, being a contractor as well as a garage owner, the duster comes in very handy, the good ground clearance lets me go to work sites with bad road conditions and ample boot lets me carry everything I need. Decent power calls for a good driving experience, I have updated to 17' alloys and 225/55 sections types and the car handles Wonderful. being able to go over pot holes like nothing exists is also a great relief. so as a overall family car and something to balance work and family life with a bit off added fun. The Renault Duster AMT is a Wonderful choice for me. Having run close to 50000 km I have had not many major issues.

Bad: Interior quality and ergonomics are a let down as that is were we spend most of out time in. Bit more comfortable seats and better bolsters. Audio which came with the car is not to great also.

More Details: I have added a BMC replacement filter to the car, which has no major effect but dose give a slightly better top end feel. also recently gave it a good oil treatment. With flush and AMS 5w40 synthetic oil. Car drives very smooth. Major change are the alloys which have dramatically changed the feel of driving the car, (note: adapter hub rings are needed to avoid vibrations when installing alloys).
