The Duster Sandstorm edition is priced between Rs. 10.90 lakh - 11.70 lakh - ex-showroom, Delhi.
While the second generation Dacia (Renault) Duster might have been revealed globally, there is still some time before the new model launches in India. The French carmaker, presently, is gearing up to launch the Captur in India by September end.
So, to keep the current generation Duster competitive, Renault has introduced a special edition of the SUV - dubbed Duster Sandstorm edition. The limited edition model is based on the RxS trim of the Duster, and will be available only with the 1.5-litre diesel engine, in both states of tune.
The Sandstorm edition features special exterior paint options with bespoke body graphics, a new matt black bumper armour with bigger lamps & Duster branding, matt black grille, sandstrom decals all around the exterior and an all-new design for the 16-inch alloy wheels.
Interiors of the Duster Sandstorm sport dual tone seat covers & floor mats with sandstorm branding, and Renault’s standard 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Mechanically, the Sandstorm edition remains identical to the standard Duster diesel, featuring a 1.5-litre diesel engine with either 84bhp and 200Nm, or 108bhp and 254Nm. A 5-speed or 6-speed manual gearbox is available based on the engine tune chosen. AMT or 4WD option is not offered on this limited edition model.
