Argentina – Renault Duster Los Pumas Special Edition celebrates the sport of Rugby
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
The Renault Duster Los Pumas Special Edition has been introduced in the Argentinian market. This particular edition has been launched by ‘The Cougars’, a rugby team, and predictably Renault is using the rugby players and the sport to market the Duster.
The main addition to the Los Pumas edition is the ‘Adventure Kit’. This kit includes a front bumper integrated with another set of foglights and the word ‘Duster’ etched on it, protective plastic moldings for the side and a side step. Apart from those, the emblem of the UAR (Union Argentina de Rugby) also finds a spot on the car.
Powering this special edition will be the 2.0-liter 16v petrol engine producing 138bhp. A 6-speed manual gearbox is being offered and customers can spec this Duster as a 2WD or 4WD. Dual front airbags, ABS, a 7-inch touchscreen media system with navigation, 16-inch alloy wheels and rear parking sensors are the standard features.
The Duster Los Pumas will be available in three exterior color choices – Glacier White, Black and Grey Star.
While we are on the same topic, the Dacia Duster facelift is confirmed to be shown at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
