The Duster facelift for the Brazilian market gets market specific changes and is a bit different from the international version. The front fascia is characterized by new headlight enclosures with LED daytime running lights, a gloss-black grille and a large skid guard.

New aluminium roof rails and taillights complete the exterior changes on the Duster facelift. Interestingly, the taillights get an Audi-like LED element which is unseen on the international model.

Inside, the crossover gets a new center console, and a new steering wheel borrowed from the new Sandero. The touchscreen entertainment system is updated with access to social media channels and live traffic information.

A new white-backlit instrument cluster is also seen with the addition of the Eco function (rolled out on the Indian Duster last month). The Duster facelift is offered with 1.6- and 2.0-liter flex-fuel engines paired to manual and automatic transmissions. The top-end 2.0-liter variant gets a 4WD system as well.

For the Indian market, Renault rolled out a model year update for the Duster last month, which saw new seat fabrics, a new 3-spoke steering wheel and cruise control. There were no cosmetic changes, though sources suggest the Duster facelift would launch in India later this year, or in early-2016.
