2017 Renault Duster Revealed

What is it?

Shockingly affordable, says Renault . How shocking? This compact crossover-style machine costs from R304 900 or R85 000 less than the price of a Nissan Qashqai 1.5cdi. The Duster is bigger inside, too and has the same 1.5-litre dCi turbodiesel engine should you so wish. That’s shocking.

Indeed, it should be no surprise to find there are compromises to saving money when buying a Renault Duster. It’s just that the proven Renault bits beneath mean it shouldn’t break or fall to bits.  To buyers who want something sturdy, fuss-free and shiny-new. What a shockingly sensible approach.

A recent facelift means more standard equipment, some new headlights and a new top-of-the-range trim level.
