Features exclusive details that pay homage to the gruesome Dakar Rally.
This November, Renault is announcing the launch of a special edition Renault Duster Dakar for the Brazilian market. While it may not perform as aggressively as the actual Renault Duster Dakar rally SUV, it features exclusive touches that pay homage to the gruesome Dakar Rally.
For instance, the front door has a sticker of the Dakar Rally logo, while the lower portion of the two doors has a long sticker that depict the Dakar Rally map. It rides on 16 ” diamond cut alloy wheels with black glossy finish, and has black plastic bumper extensions. The only colors available for the Dakar edition are white neige, silver étoile, nacre black and brown safari.
Based on the Dynamique variant, the interior is equipped with parking sensors, electric mirrors, 7-inch MEDIANAV touchscreen featuring GPS with traffic information in real time for some cities, Eco Coaching and Eco Scoring (for assessing fuel consumption), audio sytem with 4 speakers, aux and USB input, and Bluetooth connectivity.
Engine options include 1.6- and 2.0-liter flex-fuel engines paired to manual and automatic transmissions. The top-end 2.0-liter variant gets a 4WD system as well.
