The New Renault DUSTER TECHROAD is set to raise the ever-tough DUSTER Model range to new heights

The launch of the All-New Renault Duster SUV, in October 2018, has been a resounding success with a 50% increase in Duster sales.


The New Duster range was complemented by the introduction of the much-anticipated Renault Duster 4x4 earlier this year, and now welcomes the Duster TechRoad derivative to this ever-popular range.


The TechRoad displays the same strong DNA and enhanced genetics as the rest of the Duster range with features specific to this particular model -





•    Modern exterior styling exuding a robust off-roader look

•    Completely redesigned interior with superior quality finishes and a range of new equipment to ensure heightened comfort and superb driving pleasure

•    Smart features demonstrating next level technological advancement to facilitate everyday driving, inclusive of a Rear View Camera.

•    Striking 17" Diamond Cut wheels with red caps

•    Class-leading Ground Clearance of 210mm for all-terrain

•    Impressive fuel consumption from only 4.8L/100km

•    Enhanced safety levels

•    The diverse All-New Renault Duster range is available at an extremely competitive price point ranging from only R255 900, enabling accessibility to an adventurous lifestyle.





The Duster TechRoad derivative [set to replace the Dynamique 4x2 trim level] is available now from only R293 900.



With more than two million cars sold globally, the Renault Duster has been completely revamped six years after its original release. The All-New Renault Duster models boast all-new exterior styling delivering a distinctly assertive and robust look.


 The car offers a high-quality, totally redesigned interior for a comfortable and user-friendly cabin experience.



Equipped with new driving aids and new equipment, the All-New Duster is a genuine SUV which is both versatile and comfortable for everyday driving, with the 4x4


The original Renault Duster was designed and engineered to adeptly master tough road conditions, but in a more modest form. The Duster has proved to be extremely popular in the SA market with a remarkable 17,000+ units sold to date since its initial launch.



The All-New Renault Duster builds on and reinforces the Duster's existing strengths, but the renowned DNA of the Duster remains at the heart, i.e. an extremely capable SUV, which is tough, simple and reliable, yet very accessible based on the value proposition.




NEXT-LEVEL TOUGH



The All-New Renault Duster TechRoad's robust and particularly assertive styling highlights its SUV pedigree. Visually more muscular, the design tone is set by the more aggressive lines, and a more expressive front and wider rear, heightening the impression of stability.



The Duster's tough stance is emphasized by its bold, more horizontal lines, new 17" Diamond Cut wheels ensuring a more assertive profile, new prominent silver roof rails, and front and rear skid plates that support its adventurer credentials. The chrome trim of the grille, alongside a raised waistline and the powerful C-shaped light signature complete the powerful stance of the New Duster.


The TechRoad's muscular exterior is enhanced by distinctive bespoke badging and red strips on the side doors, with the new Red Fusion colour bound to be a popular choice.



 The New Renault Duster now has even greater off-road capabilities evident by the class-leading ground clearance of 210mm, with noteworthy approach and departure angles of 30° high approach and 34° departure angles respectively, deeming it suited for all terrain driving.



CLASS-LEADING SPACE AND COMFORT



The interior of the All-New Renault Duster TechRoad has been completely re-designed, marked by a spacious and passenger friendly cabin. The upholstery features a high-quality finish, with red detailing on the seats and striking red interior finishes. Particular emphasis has been placed on the dashboard as well, presenting strong ergonomic design.



Optimized travelling comfort is further ensured by the newly designed and more enveloping seats, with careful attention to the materials, fit and finish.


Numerous clever stowage spaces are easily accessible with improved accessibility of controls, and amongst others, an enhanced Multimedia experience. 


The New Duster also offers a modular interior layout to easily adapt to needs, with the rear bench seat featuring a 1/3 - 2/3 split-fold function, while the boot boasts best-in-class loading capacity of up to 478L.



IMPROVED QUALITY AND HIGH-END EQUIPMENT


The All-New Renault Duster offers a host of state of the art equipment to facilitate stress-free everyday driving, including on-board GPS Navigation. Now with Smartphone mirror compatibility, today's top contenders are Apple's CarPlay and Android Auto.


Each provides functionality of your phone's system that runs on your car's computer interface, allowing drivers and passengers to control music, navigate, and communicate by way of voice commands and the car's manual controls.



In theory, better apps mean safer driving; if you don't need to access your phone, you can better focus on driving.


Plus, the convenience of features such as Automatic Climate Control, Speed Limiter and Cruise Control functions provide superb driving support on the open road.



UNCOMPROMISED SAFETY



The All-New Duster offers a multitude of advanced active and passive safety technology as standard across the range, such as ABS [Anti-Lock Braking System] with EBD [Electronic Brake Distribution] in conjunction with EBA [Emergency Brake Assist], making it possible to maintain control over the trajectory in the event of heavy braking.




Rear Park Distance Control enables easier parking manoeuvres by warning the driver of obstacles situated behind the vehicle by a sequence of beeps which speed up the closer you are to them. Hill Start Assist, triggered by taking one's foot off the brake, takes over the vehicle by holding it steady for 2 seconds, allowing the driver to accelerate normally without stalling or rolling back.



POWERED TO GO FURTHER



The phenomenal All-New Renault Duster comes with two fuel options and three engine options. There is a choice between the 1.6L 16V and two versions of the incredible 1.5 dCi turbo engine.


With the Duster 1.5 dCi, driver confidence and comfort are brought to the fore. The Diesel 1.5 dCi 4x2's engine has outputs of 66kW and 210Nm and consumes from only 5.1L/100km. The 4x2 EDC and 4x4 Manual versions have outputs of 80kW and 250Nm & 260Nm respectively, with consumption from only 4.8L/100km.


For greater comfort and pleasure, the 6-speed Dual-Clutch EDC Automatic gearbox is now available with the 1.5 dCi Diesel engine. Upshifting is fast and smooth, with no jerking or loss in acceleration, with fuel consumption is comparable to that of the Manual from only 4.8L/100km.



PEACE OF MIND COMES STANDARD




As is standard across Renault's entire product range, the All-New Renault Duster Model range comes standard with a 5-year/150 000km mechanical warranty and a 6-year anti-corrosion warranty. Services take place at 15 000km intervals, and a standard 3-year/45000km service plan applies.


The All-New Renault Duster TechRoad certainly has a bold personality, both inside and out, making the Renault Duster range even better equipped to be a segment breaker.
