JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – The Renault Duster SUV range has achieved more than 15 000 sales in South Africa since it was introduced here back in 2013 and more than two million globally. Now in showrooms is the 2020 version of this seriously well-priced family wagon.
It comes with the promise of doing much that way more-costly on/off-roaders offer for Sunday trips, the school run – or some serious wandering in the wilderness.
Read on to find out how to win a 2020 Renault Duster.
The French say the Duster’s 210mm ground clearance ”is capable of conquering any terrain with absolute ease”. Pretty big claim, for Africa… but whatever. And it has a close to 490-litre boot, the package rolling on 16 or 17” alloy rim/tyre combinations with, Renault declares, ”powerful lines with signature C-shaped daytime running lights”.
Ready to help with off-road tasks are hill-start and gradient descent control and a 4×4 monitor to help the driver assess pitch and roll angles over challenging terrain.
On-road assistance comes in the form of satnav, reversing camera, blind-spot/parking radar, and aircon.
Crash mitigation equipment includes anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, and crash-cushioning nitrogen bags.
Buyers will have a choice of three engines – 1.6 quad-valve petrol and two versions of a 1.5-litre turbodiesel.
The petrol version, Renault claims, can manage 4.8 litres/100km from its 50-litre fuel tank and a diesel Renault Duster 1.5 dCi EDC 4×2 Techroad won its category (Diesel Turbo 1300-2000cc) in the 2019 WesBank Fuel Economy Tour.
Each 2020 Renault Duster will be delivered with a three-year/45 000km* service plan and a five-year/150 000km* warranty.
*Whichever comes first.
