The 2016 Dacia Duster with a few model year updates has been unveiled at the ongoing Frankfurt Motor Show 2015. The updates are aimed at keeping the product fresh amidst constant inflow of new compact crossover contenders in Europe.
The cosmetic revisions are restricted to the new 16-inch dual-tone diamond finish alloy wheels and the new Altai Green exterior color options. Changes to the interior come in the form of an updated touchscreen MediaNav infotainment system which now also features reverse parking camera and new trim options with grey stitching (Silicon Black with Black in lower variants and Federer Grey with Black on higher variants). Dacia also has an accessoried Duster Urban Explorer special edition on display at the Frankfurt show.
Under the skin, the entire powertrain lineup is now supported by standard start stop system for improved efficiency. The 90 PS TCe compact turbocharged petrol motor can be now specified with Easy-R AMT. The 115 PS 1.6-litre petrol and 109 PS 1.5-litre dCi diesel motor will continue to be paired to 5- and 6-speed manual transmissions respectively.
The Renault Duster’s sales in India have been witnessing a steady decline due to the arrival of new contenders like the Hyundai Creta and Maruti S-Cross. To counteract, the French automaker is working on a facelift for its crossover. Expect the Renault Duster facelift to be introduced in India this festive season (by November 2015).
