Built for adventure, the all-new Renault Duster is a vehicle of distinctive styling. The tone is set by the aggressive lines and chrome trim of the grille, alongside a raised waistline and powerful C-shaped light signature. These strong, powerful lines are enhanced by 16″ or 17″ alloy wheel rims that underline the car’s character. We also had the pleasure to be part of the Retreaters at the Camping Retreats in Magaliesburg where we took this baby out on the gravel road which was the activity venue that weekend. The interior of the all-new Renault Duster reflects its generous, adventure-seeking nature. The spacious cabin is bright and reassuring. The driver* and passenger seats provide plenty of support to ensure comfort on your journey. The upholstery features a high-quality finish, as does the dashboard, where the particular emphasis was placed on ergonomic design. Behind the steering wheel, adjustable for height and reach, TFT digital meters invite you on an inspirational and illuminated tour of discovery.
What could be more exciting than setting out on an adventure with your family or friends?
