Renault India launches limited edition Renault Duster Explore – IAB Report


Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!

Features only cosmetic updates.

Renault India has quietly launched a limited edition of the Duster, calling it the Duster Explore. The Explore is available only in the RxL. The less powerful 85 PS RxL Explore is priced at INR 9.99 lakh while 110 PS RxL Explore costs INR 11.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Renault Duster Explore is based on the RxL trim and is available with the 85 PS and 110 PS diesel engine options.

The limited edition does not feature any mechanical changes under the hood. The front features a dark chrome grille, smoked headlamps, bull bar with driving lights and stripe decal on the hood. Coming to the side, it gets dark anthracite alloy wheels and decals on the doors. The rear end only sports darkened chrome strip on the tail gate.

Interior comes with revisions in the form of a dual-tone seat upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel and orange inserts on the dashboard, instrument cluster and floor mats. There is also silver trim on the door panels, center console, steering wheel and transmission tunnel. Features such as a gear-shift indicator, eco mode and cruise control with speed limiter are also present.
