Renault Duster facelift testing
Renault Duster facelift testingAutocarIndia

A heavily camouflaged Renault Duster was recently snapped during a test run on Chennai roads. The spy image released by AutocarIndia gives a fair idea about the upcoming facelift.

The three-slat chrome grill on the front will make way for a single slat darkened one, which is in line with the model sold in the international market. The design of the headlamp will remain the same with rearrangements inside. The spy picture indicates redesigned tail lamps and newly-designed alloy wheels.

A redesigned dashboard with up-market upholstery can be expected in the interior. Additionally, the model will continue to have seven-inch MediaNAV infotainment display and cruise control.

The camouflaged mule could have also been testing for the international market as the French manufacturer is exporting Duster for foreign countries from the Chennai plant.

The Duster facelift is likely to continue with the same 1.5-litre dCi diesel engine that can churn out 84bhp and 108bhp state of tunes. If reports are to be believed, there will also be a six-speed dual clutch transmission, called the EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch). An AWD system with independent suspension will be exclusive to the range-topping trim.

The Duster facelift is likely to be unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo and reach the markets soon.
