Ahead of an expected appearance at the upcoming 2016 Auto Expo, the Renault Duster has been spotted again in Chennai – where Renault India’s manufacturing facility is based.
Expected to follow the same design as the Duster in Brazil, the facelift will get a slightly reworked front-end and rear styling. New design alloy wheels and an improved quality for the interior will add to the package.
And while the engine options are likely to remain unchanged, Renault is expected to introduce an AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) on the Duster facelift. The said gearbox is likely to be made available only with the bigger, 110 PS engine. Further details like its availability on the AWD version etc. will be clear as the launch nears.
The inclusion of an automatic gearbox will certainly help it make a stronger case for itself especially against rivals like the Creta. But apart from that, not a lot is expected to be changed in the upcoming facelift.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it and all that…
