However, it all depends on the extent of 'greed' on part of Renault while pricing it.
Cost difference between DCT & AMT is 2 lakhs as per the article. What would be the difference between a torque converter & DCT? Besides, when every other car costing around Duster levels is offering a traditional AT why can't Renault?

Duster facelift will be launched on Feb 4th, during the Auto Expo 2016

The facelift will feature

1. New single piece center console panel that houses the round HVAC vents
2. Central cubby hole
3. MEDIANAV touchscreen display
4. HVAC controls separated from the main console
5. New fabric upholstery

85 PS variant will sport 5 speed transmission and the 110 PS, along with the 6 speed manual will aslo get the Easy-R AMT.

AMT??? will it be suitable for an SUV???.

IMO Renault should have launched the facelift with the Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) transmission. A missed opportunity I would say

Any news about the Duster facelift that is supposed to be unveiled in the AutoExpo?
I could see pictures of MS Vitara Brezza everywhere.

https://www.renault.co.in/auto-expo-2016.html in about 4 hours you will hear about the Renault facelift. Coincidentally I happened to see a mule only yesterday. The exterior looks very much like the Brazilian brother.

Mod Note: Our Duster Facelift & AMT Report has been taken live at this link. Please continue the discussion over on the new thread. Thanks!

A close look at the 2016 Renault Duster facelift, which was unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo earlier in the afternoon.


Front borrows design cues from the Explore edition & the Brazil edition's facelift. Seen here in it's all-new Cayenne Orange shade:

Side profile remains largely the same, except for new alloys and new roof rails:

Rear sees the inclusion of all-new "Waterfall LED" tail-lamps:

A closer look at the LED tail-light section:

The roof rails bear the "Duster" insignia:

The revised dashboard and interior scheme:

Passenger-side dash now bears the "Duster" insignia:

Touchscreen Navigation-based Head Unit:

Cruise Control buttons on steering wheel:

Steering column-mounted controls continue:

Boasting of over 32 new styling & technical feature additions, the 2016 Duster also comes with 2 new variant options - an EasyR AMT version and a 4x4 version.

Engine options continue to remain the same, although Renault claims to have tweaked the engine architecture & the housing compartment to improve the refinement levels.

The 2016 Duster facelift will be in showrooms soon, to take on the Hyundai Creta & the Nissan Terrano.
