Cosmetic updates on the Renault Duster 2016 include updated taillight clusters and new alloy wheel designs.

One of the biggest changes expected in the facelifted Duster is the introduction of the 6-speed Easy-R AMT gearbox, which is exclusive to the 110 PS variant. Cosmetic updates include updated taillight clusters, new alloy wheel designs and perhaps new body panels.

The front-end of the Renault Duster 2016 receives a single slat grille flanked by headlamps with a new cluster design. Renault India’s Managing Director & CEO Sumit Sawhney told IAB last year that the Renault Duster facelift will have “a lot of innovations.”
