The India-made Renault Duster launched in South Africa in September 2013 and this week, the South African subsidiary announced that it has sold 10,000 copies of the SUV in the country.
To celebrate the milestone, the company has launched the Duster Limited Edition EXPLORE. Only 100 units of this special edition will be made.
The special edition Duster is the Dynamique 4×2 Limited Edition EXPLORE model, based on the Duster 1.6 16V Dynamique 4×2.
