The Renault Duster BS6 petrol is available in even the RXZ trim.

Renault offers the Duster BS6 in India with only the H4K 1.5-litre petrol engine. Like in the Duster BS4, the naturally aspirated four-cylinder produces 106 PS and 142 Nm of torque. It is linked to a 5-speed manual transmission. Unlike in the old model, there’s no CVT option with this engine.

The BS4 Renault Duster was available with the K9K 1.5-litre dCi diesel engine as well, in 85 PS/200 Nm (with 5-speed MT) and 110 PS/245 Nm (with 6-speed MT/6-speed AMT) versions. The BS6 Renault Duster isn’t offered with a diesel engine. It will be available with a brand-new 1.3-litre TCe turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine linked to a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an optional CVT in the future, though.

Co-developed by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and Daimler, the 1.3-litre TCe engine is internally known as the HR13 unit and is made in various versions at the Renault’s Valladolid Motores plant in Spain. The HR13 1.3-litre TCe engine used in the India-made Renault Duster will reportedly have a maximum power of 156 PS and a maximum torque of 250 Nm.
