New Renault Duster to hit KSA market soon

Gulf Advantage Automobiles is welcoming the new Duster to its lineup in Saudi Arabia starting in September.
“While offering a range of high-quality, new features, the reinvented SUV will still retain the same level of affordability that the name ‘Duster’ is celebrated for,” the company said in a statement.
The new Renault Duster boasts brand-new exterior styling, delivering a distinctly assertive and robust look, as well as an upgrade in perceived quality with a totally redesigned interior for a comfortable and user-friendly driving experience.
Since its global launch in 2010, more than 2.45 million Duster models have been sold across the world under the Renault and Dacia brands. The SUV for everyday motoring has been popular with drivers across the globe, with exceptional sales results recorded in Russia, India, Brazil and the Middle East.
“The Duster’s roominess, affordability and off-road capabilities have long been recognized as the model’s strengths and the all-new models continue to carry these desirable attributes,” the company said.
“The SUV’s exterior has been given a more robust look thanks to the addition of a wide chrome-finish grille which extends to the headlights positioned at the car’s front corners. A front skid plate reinforces the Duster’s adventurer credentials and ensures that the vehicle never loses its smart looks. Finished with Renault’s signature C-shaped lighting with LED daytime running lights the Duster is a modern SUV with a rugged personality.”
Inside, the Duster is equipped with new driving aids and equipment. On stepping inside the cabin, the noticeable difference in quality is instantly recognizable — packed with “Easy Life” features like Hill Descent Control, Multiview camera and Blind Spot Warning, 4x4 monitor, automatic air conditioning, Remote Engine Start (GCC only), seven-inch touchscreen tablet and Renault smart card with keyless entry system — as well as quality trims and materials.
The new Duster is available in both 2WD and 4WD specifications. It comes with a choice of two petrol engines, 1.6L (4x2) mated to a CVT automatic transmission, and 2L with automatic transmission (4x4).
