Recently we ventured into Jordan to drive the all-new Duster, the unstoppable SUV with Renault Middle East. While offering a range of high-quality, new features, the reinvented SUV retains the same level of affordability that the name ‘Duster’ is celebrated for.
The all-new Renault Duster boasts keyless entry, brand-new exterior styling, delivering a distinctly assertive and robust look, as well as an upgrade in perceived quality with a totally redesigned interior for a comfortable and user-friendly driving experience.
The SUV’s exterior is enhanced thanks to the addition the wide chrome-finish grille, which extends to the headlights positioned at the car’s front corners. Although visually more muscular than before, the Duster has the same compact dimensions with a wider front and rear and its robust stance is emphasized by its bold, more horizontal lines.
A front skid plate reinforces the Duster’s adventurer credentials and ensures that the vehicle never loses its smart looks. Finished with Renault’s signature C-shaped lighting with LED daytime running lights the Duster is a modern SUV with a rugged personality.
New aluminium roof bars and more prominent front and rear skid plates point to the All-New Duster’s adventurer credentials. New 17-inch wheels ensure an even more assertive profile.
Inside, the Duster is equipped with new, high-quality, driving aids and new equipment, making it a genuine adventure-ready SUV which offers the versatility and comfort for everyday driving.
The interior has been thoroughly updated for upgraded comfort and to make the model even more practical in everyday use. The steeply raked windscreen makes the cabin feel bigger, while its acoustics have been significantly improved and cabin insulation significantly reduces noise from outside the car.
On stepping inside the cabin, the noticeable difference in quality is instantly recognisable – packed with ‘Easy Life’ features like Hill Descent Control, Multiview camera and Blind Spot Warning, 4×4 monitor, automatic air conditioning, Remote Engine Start (GCC only), seven-inch touchscreen tablet and Renault smart card with keyless entry system – as well as quality trims and materials.
The all-new Duster is available in both 2WD and 4WD specifications and offers among the market’s very best off-road capability. With a choice of two petrol engines; 1.6L (4×2) mated to a CVT automatic transmission, and 2.0L with automatic transmission (4×4), the Duster is an SUV equipped for any terrain.
The Duster’s roominess, affordability and off-road capabilities have long been recognised as the model’s strengths and the all-new models continues to carry these desirable attributes. The SUV has been popular with drivers across the globe, with exceptional sales results records. With an off-road ability among the very best in its class, it is now even more fun to drive.
