Renault India on Thursday unveiled the Duster with a facelift.
Though it resembles the existing version, a closer look reveals better exterior design and upgraded interiors.
It features a revised engine lineup and the option of a 6-speed Easy-R AMT gearbox.
What stands out are the new Kayak roof rails and the chrome lines beside the logo, headlights and electronically adjusted OVRMs.
The interiors look appealing and a touch of colour on the door panels makes it look nice and sporty.
Safety features in the top-end variants include ABS with EBD and brake assist, dual Airbags, ESP and Hill Start.
Additional new safety features include auto-up/down and anti pinch window.
The new automatic air conditioning and the cruise control are a welcome touch to this successful small SUV.
Better engineering, styling, safety and comfort features will make it a winner in its segment.
