14 Aug 2014 / 0

The four-wheel drive model of the Renault Duster SUV is here. Finally. And we did take it out for a spin for our first drive review. Here are the images from the photoshoot. Take a look.

Renault Duster AWD

Unlike the two-wheel drive model, the Duster AWD uses a different suspension layout and thus complicates the production. This is why Renault brought in the AWD model later

 

The AWD model is to come in two models, the RxL and the top-end RxZ

Both cars sport new headlights with blacked out bits inside it plus badging. These headlights, says Renault, will remain exclusive to the four-wheel drive model

 

The Duster AWD will, as its name says, offer three modes - two(front)-wheel drive, automatic and manually locked four-wheel drive. These modes can be switched on the fly via a rotary dial mounted into the fascia

The soft-touch plastics of the dash also boast a new multi-function display along with a three-spoke steering wheel that is wrapped in leather on the RxZ model

The top model also gets cruise control and a new touchscreen entertainment system which isn’t all new. It’s been available as an option on the two-wheel drive models since January 2013 and will be standard on the RxZ AWD

 

The RxL will also get steel rims while the RxZ gets the same alloys as the two-wheel drive Duster but in a fetching steel grey

Renault should shortly start bookings and start selling the AWD model, probably at a premium of between Rs 65,000 and Rs 80,000 over the two-wheel drive models. Expect to be able to buy one before the festive season opens
