Ex­plore more with Re­nault

Lim­ited edi­tion Duster on of­fer

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

OVER 10 000 peo­ple have now bought a Re­nault Duster since its Septem­ber 2013 launch, and to mark this mile­stone, Re­nault has launched a lim­ited Ex­plore edi­tion of its pop­u­lar sport util­ity ve­hi­cle.

Sell­ing for R258 900, the 4x2 Ex­plore comes with an ar­ray of on-board ex­tras. But, warns Re­nault’s prod­uct man­ager Jeffrey Al­li­son, you’d have to put foot to get one, for they mean what they say with “lim­ited edi­tion”.

Al­li­son said only 100 units of the Ex­plore edi­tion will be sold in South Africa, all at the same price as the stan­dard Re­nault Duster 1,6 16V Dy­namique 4x2.

Lots ex­tra, ex­cept the price

Al­li­son said all Re­nault mod­els are known for be­ing “all-in­clu­sive” with their spec­i­fi­ca­tion lev­els, in­tel­li­gent tech­nolo­gies as well as ac­tive and pas­sive safety fea­tures and fit­ments.

The Re­nault Duster SUV lineup is no ex­cep­tion. An up­grade of its 1,6 Dy­namique 4x2 sib­ling, the Duster 1,6 77 kW Dy­namique 4x2 Lim­ited Edi­tion Ex­plore comes with even more equip­ment in­cluded. • Duster-branded nudge bar. • New Lim­ited Edi­tion 16-inch al­loy wheels. • Wheel arch pro­tec­tors. • Re­verse cam­era.

Un­der the hood

Re­nault’s 1,6 16 V petrol en­gine has re­ceived high praise for its re­li­a­bil­ity and top per­for­mance.

Nat­u­rally as­pi­rated, this pop­u­lar pow­er­plant pro­duces max­i­mum power out­put of 77 kW at 5 750 rpm and peak torque of 148 Nm at 3 750 rpm, while main­tain­ing en­vi­able fuel con­sump­tion lev­els (7,6 litres per 100 km in the com­bined cy­cle).

The Duster Dy­namique Lim­ited Edi­tion Ex­plore is as at home on high­ways, in cities and sub­urbs as it is off the beaten track. Press­ing all the right but­tons for a new breed of driver with di­verse de­mands be­hind the wheel, the 1,6 16 V en­gine de­liv­ers driv­ing plea­sure and ab­so­lute peace of mind what­ever the road con­di­tions. An au­then­tic SUV that’s tough, un­pre­ten­tious and ver­sa­tile, the Re­nault Duster SUV is the proven fit for any in­di­vid­ual or fam­ily seek­ing ad­ven­ture.

What the own­ers said

Rugged and re­li­able, Re­nault’s Duster SUV is just the ticket to take the fam­ily al­most any­where.

The first Re­nault model de­signed to meet strin­gent Euro­pean standards — yet be ca­pa­ble of con­quer­ing in­ter­na­tional mar­kets where us­age and road con­di­tions are con­sid­er­ably more rugged — the Re­nault Duster line-up con­tin­ues to be a for­mi­da­ble con­tender in South Africa’s B-SUV seg­ment.

War­ranties and ser­vice plan

As is the case across Re­nault’s en­tire prod­uct range, the Duster 1,6 77 kW Dy­namique 4x2 Lim­ited Edi­tion Ex­plore comes with a five-year/150 000 km me­chan­i­cal war­ranty. Stan­dard on the Duster range is a three­year/45 000 km ser­vice plan (with ser­vice in­ter­vals at 15 000 km in­ter­vals) and a six -year anti-cor­ro­sion war­ranty.
