The India-spec 2016 Renault Duster will soldier on with the 1.5-liter K9K dCi diesel engine available in two power tunes: 85 PS and 110 PS. While the former is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, the latter gets a 6-speed manual unit. Another technology that will be seen on the Duster 2016 is the Easy-R AMT option.

Renault India’s Managing Director & CEO Sumit Sawhney told IAB this year that the Renault Duster facelift will have “a lot of innovations.”
