Renault Duster 4x4 completes the range
Following the successful launch of the all-new Renault Duster in October 2018, the much-anticipated Duster 4x4 is here, displaying the same enhanced genetics as the rest of the Duster range with specific features designed to enrich the 4x4 experience.
With more than two million cars sold globally, the Renault Duster has been completely revamped six years after its original release.
The All-New Renault Duster builds on and reinforces the Duster’s existing strengths, but the renowned DNA of the Duster remains at the heart, i.e. an extremely capable SUV, which is tough, simple and reliable, yet accessible based on the value proposition.
Equipped with new driving aids and new equipment, the Duster is a genuine SUV which is both versatile and comfortable for everyday driving.
The Renault Duster 4x4’s robust and particularly assertive styling highlights its SUV pedigree. Visually more muscular, the design tone is set by the more aggressive lines, and a more expressive front and wider rear, heightening the impression of stability.
The Duster’s tough stance is emphasised by its bold, more horizontal lines, new 16” wheels ensuring a more assertive profile, new more prominent aluminium roof bars, and front and rear skid plates that support its adventurer credentials. The chrome trim of the grille, alongside a raised waistline and the powerful C-shaped light signature complete the powerful stance of the New Duster.
Its muscular exterior is matched by its relentless 4x4 capability. The new Renault Duster now has even greater off-road capabilities evident by the class-leading ground clearance of 210 mm, with noteworthy approach and departure angles of 30° high approach and 34° departure angles respectively, deeming it suited for all terrain driving.
CLASS-LEADING SPACE AND COMFORT
The interior of the Renault Duster has been completely re-designed, marked by a spacious and passenger friendly cabin. The upholstery features a high-quality finish, as does the dashboard, where particular emphasis has been placed on ergonomic design.
Optimised travelling comfort is further ensured by the newly designed and more enveloping seats, with careful attention to the materials, fit and finish.
Numerous clever stowage spaces are easily accessible with improved accessibility of controls, and amongst others, an enhanced multimedia experience.
IMPROVED QUALITY AND HIGH-END EQUIPMENT
The Renault Duster 4x4 offers a host of state-of-the-art equipment to facilitate stress-free everyday driving, including on-board GPS navigation. Now with smartphone mirror compatibility, today’s top contenders are Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto.
Blind-spot warning detects any obscured vehicles and convenient automatic headlights activate automatically without the driver needing to press a manual switch.
The automatic climate control, speed limiter and cruise control functions provide superb driving support on the open road.
The Renault Duster 4x4 is distinguished through its range of high-class equipment to enhance the vehicle’s off-road prowess, such as hill descent control, enabling smooth descent of hills without use of the brake. A multi-view camera allows for easy visibility of the front, rear or side terrain, triggered by the reverse gear or by a simple touch of the dedicated button, while the innovative 4x4 monitor allows one to even check the pitch and roll angles of the Duster at any given time.
With the transmission mode selector available on the 4x4 Model, the driver is able to switch between 3 driving modes: 2WD Mode where the engine torque is distributed to the front wheels, Automatic Mode allowing distribution of engine torque over the 4 wheels or Lock Mode for engine torque distribution to all four wheels.
POWERED TO GO FURTHER
The Renault Duster 4x4 is powered by a 1.5 dCi engine mated with a 6-speed manual gearbox, for greater driving comfort and pleasure. Upshifting is fast and smooth, with no jerking or loss in acceleration. The Duster 4x4 model boasts phenomenal fuel consumption from only 5.2 L/100 km, and yields outputs of 80 kW with 260 Nm of torque and contained CO2 emissions of 138 g/km. - QuickPic
