On the outside, the Duster 4WD wears tinted headlight lenses, much like the Duster Adventure Edition that was launched at the Auto Expo. At least two variants would be on offer, as the base model gets regular steel wheels while the top-end trim receives alloy wheels. The bootlid comes with a ‘4WD’ badge to help differentiate it from the regular variants.

Inside, the Duster 4WD gets a new steering, or rather a new center for the steering wheel which aims to look a bit more premium that the regular Duster’s unit. The seats get red accents, while the infotainment system is a touchscreen unit from LG on the top-end variant.
