Likely to come with Renault’s EDC technology.

AutoX has spyshots of the Renault Duster facelift, which is expected to launch in India later this year. Interestingly, a spyshot of the interior hides the gearlever, which has fueled speculations of Renault testing an automatic transmission variant of the crossover.

The Duster’s rivals are available with a 6-speed AT, and in a segment below, the EcoSport also gets a 6-speed AT paired to a petrol engine.

The Duster’s main rivals, the Hyundai Creta and the Mahindra Scorpio are available with a 6-speed automatic transmission, and it was only a matter of time before Renault India offered something similar. The report states that the Duster facelift will come with Renault’s EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch transmission), which is a 6-speed unit, paired to the 1.5-liter K9K diesel engine in its 110 PS tune.

Changes on the outside will extend to new headlights with LED daytime running lights, a new chrome grille, revised bumpers and new alloy wheels. Inside, the Duster facelift will see minor changes to its trim and upholstery. As Renault India introduced a new 3-spoke steering wheel on the 2015 model year update, alongside minor changes to the instrument cluster, these parts and components are unlikely to be altered.
