Inside, the seats have the ‘Duster’ word embroidery, while the door inserts and floor mats get a fluorescent theme.
The Duster Adventure Edition 85 PS is powered by the 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine making 85 PS and 200 Nm of torque, transmitted to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox. The regular 85 PS RxE is priced at INR 8.61 lakhs, which makes the Adventure Edition pricier by INR 55,000.
To keep the excitement of the Duster alive, Renault India plans to launch the 4×4 version of the crossover by the end of this year.
