French auto-maker Renault continues testing its new avatar of the Duster on Indian roads, and the test mule has been snapped once again ahead of its expected debut at the Auto Expo 2016.
Duster's facelift has been caught on camera earlier as well, but the latest one come from OverDrive. Nothing much has changed from what we saw last time. The prototype is still camouflaged, hiding all its key details.
From the images, the Duster facelift 2016, which is in line with the Brazilian-spec model, seems to have got a new single-slate grille, new headlamp cluster, and new alloy wheels with updated rear and front bumpers. Inside the cabin, reports indicate the SUV is likely to accommodate new features like MediaNAV System with multimedia.
A major change is expected to come in the form of an AMT (Automated Manual Transmission), called the R-AMT gearbox. Mechanically, the Duster facelift is expected to remain the same as the current model in the market with 1.6-litre petrol engine and 1.5-litre diesel engine. While the petrol mill in current model is tuned to churn out 102.5bhp of power, the diesel engine is available in two state of tune - 84bhp and 108bhp.
Rumours are rife that the Duster facelift will be showcased at the Auto Expo, scheduled be held in February.
