I bought the Renault Duster facelift just after it was launched and I was lucky enough to get the AWD diesel trim. The Duster the only SUV of its segment to offer AWD system which makes it very capable. The engine is punchy and offers a widespread of torque. The AWD system is capable and can handle any terrain. As it doesnâ€™t have any lockable differentials, it struggles in the mud. The interior quality of the Duster is very outdated and it is just not acceptable in 2020. The main highlight fo the Duster was its AWD powertrain and the diesel engine. Both have which have been discontinued and it is a pity. The 1.5 petrol engine is a not a great engine and the Duster now feels dated. If you want to buy a Duster, I would recommend you to go for the pre-owned diesel car rather than new one.
Renault Duster was the most successful car from the French carmaker and it curated the niche segment which is on full gas today. I own the 2016 Renault Duster diesel and I have done over 70,000 km on the ODO. My experience with the Duster has been a mixed bag. I love the appeal of the Duster and its ride quality. The diesel engine is reliable and powerful and still delivers great fuel efficiency numbers. The ride quality of the Duster has always been its USP and it still offers terrific comfort. There are some issues with the Duster too. I have faced some electrical failures with the Duster which were fixed by the dealership in multiple attempts. The clutch worn out at 30,000 km which is much lesser than other cars. The service quality is decent but not value for money. Overall, Renault Duster is a solid SUV but as the market has better options available and Renault also doesnâ€™t have any plans to bring in the next generation, I donâ€™t see any point of buying a Duster in 2020.
