Renault Duster 4x4: Expected to be launched in September
It is rumored that the French car maker Renault may bring 4x4 version of its highly acclaimed SUV Duster sometimes during the month of September this year. Duster was launched in Indian car market two years back in 2014 with front wheel drive option and the introduction of 4x4 version may be inspired from existing demand on car market in current scenario.
The Duster 4x4 has been already being sold in South African car market and there the four wheel drive system is offered with 110PS 1.6 litre engine churning the power of 108 bhp and torque of 240Nm. The power to both front and rear wheels is sent through six speed manual gearbox and four wheel drive system.
Industry experts speculated that the 4x4 variant of Duster would be similar to facelift version of Duster which was showcased last year during the month of July. As far as the price of Duster 4x4 is concerned it is expected to be priced Rs. 1 lakh costlier than the existing 110PS version, but unfortunately it may miss some of the features offered in that version.
