Renault India has been testing the refreshed Duster for quite a while now. In the latest update, the exterior, as well as the interior, of the 2020 Renault Duster has been revealed through a set of spy images from Throttle-Blips.
The 2020 Renault Duster gets updated with an all-new steering wheel, which gets faux aluminium accents. The new unit could be even seen on the Renault Triber. It also features buttons for cruise control at the front, while control buttons for volume and other audio control functions are added only to the back, as seen on the out-going Duster.
The dashboard layout reminds of the current model but features a number of small updates, such as the use of faux aluminium trim, chrome and piano black bits, along with new interior colours which make the cabin feel fresher than before. The circular central AC vents have made way for rectangular units, while corner ones retain their circular shape, albeit, with faux brushed aluminium surrounds. The instrument panel remains unchanged, and uses chrome outline. Another big update comes in the form of a new infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
On the outside, the 2020 Renault Duster features some prominent updates in the form of reworked front styling, an all-new grille, slightly altered headlamps with LED DRLs and projector headlamps, and a new and chunkier front bumper. Other exterior updates include new roof rails, new alloy wheels and additional black plastic cladding on the tailgate. The revised hood and the reworked front-end helps the SUV comply with the upcoming stricter crash and pedestrian safety norms.
Reportedly, the 2020 Renault Duster (facelift) will be powered by a BS-VI compliant 110PS, 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine, while the 85PS version will be taken off the shelves. Transmission options will include a 6-speed manual and AMT units. Also on offer will be a BS-VI-compliant 1.5-litre petrol engine that will be available with a 5-speed manual transmission and a CVT.
