Launch will take place next month.
More images of the soon-to-launch Renault Duster AWD are available courtesy of Autocar India.
On the outside, the Duster AWD gets tinted headlights like those seen on the Duster Adventure Edition, an 'AWD' body decal on the lower part of the body, a dark shade for the alloy wheels (similar to the Duster Adventure Edition again), an AWD sticker on the C-Pillar, and finally a '4WD' badge on the bootlid. A lower variant with steel wheels will also be on offer.
Inside, the seats get red inserts and the new steering wheel center looks a bit more premium than the standard steering. The key difference inside lies below the AC controls where Renault have placed a dial for the 4WD system. The system has three modes - 2WD, Auto and Lock (differential lock). The Duster AWD also comes with a traction control system, the control for which is located adjacent to the 4WD knob.
