Replacing the Renault Duster Dynamique 4×2 version is the new TechRoad with more muscular looks and a slightly wide stance. In 4×4 guise it adds an additional derivative to the range.
Visually more muscular, the design tone is set by the more aggressive lines and a more expressive front and wider rear, heightening the impression of stability. The Duster’s tough stance is emphasised by its bold, more horizontal lines, new 17-inch Diamond Cut wheels, new prominent silver roof rails and front and rear skid plates.
The interior of the TechRoad follows the redesign for the updated Duster launched in October last year, where the upholstery features a high-quality finish, with red detailing on the seats and striking red interior finishes. Particular emphasis has been placed on the dashboard as well, presenting strong ergonomic design.
The Duster offers a host of state of the art equipment to facilitate stress-free everyday driving, including on-board GPS Navigation. Now with Smartphone mirror compatibility, today’s top contenders are Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto.
Passive safety technology as standard across the range includes Anti-Lock Braking with EBD in conjunction with EBA.
Rear Park Distance Control and Hill Start Assist are also standard.
The Duster comes with two fuel options and three engine options. There is a choice between the 1.6L 16V and two versions of the incredible 1.5 dCi turbo engine.
The Diesel 1.5 dCi 4×2’s engine has outputs of 66 kW and 210 Nm and consumes from only 5,1 l/100 km while the 4×2 EDC and 4×4 Manual versions have outputs of 80 kW and 250 Nm and 260 Nm respectively, with consumption from only 4,8 l/100 km.
As is standard across Renault’s entire product range, the Duster model range comes standard with a 5-year/150 000 km mechanical warranty and a 6-year anti-corrosion warranty. Services take place at 15 000 km intervals and a standard 3-year/45 000 km service plan applies.
