Renault Duster is coming


Renault South Africa will be hitting the high road in September with the addition of the 'all terrain' Renault Duster sports utility vehicle (SUV) to its South African arsenal.

This follows hot on the heels of the highly successful launch of the new Renault Clio 4 in April of this year. Renault Duster is a major contributor to the expansion of the Renault brand outside European markets.

The model has supported steady increase of Renault sales in India, Russia and Brazil which are its first markets globally. Renault Duster will be launched in South Africa on September 16 and the South African motoring public are sure to be blown away by this sturdy yet stylish SUV’s multiple, standard features – and its affordable price tag!

At R194 900 for the base model Renault Duster 1.6 Expression 4×2 which comes with a high level of specifications as standard, this represents phenomenal value for money. Standard features include air conditioning, ABS with EBD, power-assisted steering, six-function on-board computer, front and side airbags, electric windows front and rear, electric mirrors, remote central locking, reverse parking sensors, front fog lamps, roof rails, body-coloured door handles and mirrors, 16 inch wheels, CD/MP3/radio with Bluetooth® connectivity, fingertip audio controls and more. These will make the Duster a competitive offering in its segment.

The Renault Duster 1.6 Expression 4×2 has been designed for those individuals wanting good ground clearance, an elevated driving position for better visibility as well as good off-road handling. The massive class leading 475 litres boot capacity makes the Renault Duster the perfect family car, all of this powered by a naturally aspirated 75kW 1.6 engine with a peak torque of 145Nm to complement the size of the vehicle.

The Renault Duster line-up will also include a 4×4 offer and a diesel engine. Full information on the SUV line-up will be communicated at launch. As is the case across Renault’s entire product range, the Renault Duster SUV comes with a standard service plan, industry leading five-year/150 000km warranty and a six-year anti corrosion warranty.
