Renault Duster Review
With an elevated ride height, alloys, roof racks, spot lights and all the comfort and safety features one would expect in a vehicle of this class, you can rest assured that the Renault Duster ticks all of the right boxes. Available in two distinct Expression and Dynamique variants, and with a choice of 4×2 or 4×4 powertrains, there is almost nothing a Duster cannot handle when exposed to South African driving conditions. Features such as aircon, power steering, central locking, anti-lock braking system and a full complement of airbags come as standard, which means that when you drive a Duster you know that you’re in for one hell of a good ride.
Although the Duster itself has a masculine look about it, don’t be fooled into thinking this is just a man’s car. Because truth be told, thanks to the various trim and accessories packages, this SUV can be personalised to suit any driving style or preferred vehicle look.
A new look SUV is expected to include all of the latest vehicle technology and the Duster has that and then some. With a full house of safety and comfort tech as standard, the only question you should be asking here is not what does the Renault Duster have, but is there anything it doesn’t?
Plenty has already been said about the masculine looks of the Duster, but there is also a roguish charm about this vehicle that’ll have the general SA driver going gaga over it. Its stylings will not look out of place in either the school parking lot or the African bushveld, with both actually being an option thanks to excellent on and off-road capabilities.
Duster Driving & Handling
With a choice of either a 1.6-litre petrol or 1.5 dCi turbo diesel, both with shifting torque and six-speed manual transmissions, there is very little that the Renault Duster cannot handle. Both engines do exactly what is expected of them, but with Renault’s well-respected small-capacity turbo diesel expertise coming into play here we feel that the Diesel version of the Duster ever so slightly pips the Petrol version to the driving and handling post.
Overall Thoughts on the Duster
Simply put, the Renault Duster is a very good SUV that is exceptional value for money. You’ll be hard pressed to find anything else in the local car market that offers everything the Duster does at the price it is available at. It is also exceptionally safe and economical, which in terms of South African driving conditions is a huge advantage over all of its rivals.

|Consumption rates||Urban Cycle||Extra Urban Cycle|

|1.5 dCi 4×2||6.6 L/100 km*||4.8 L/100KM*|
