Renault Duster AT spotted testing in India?

Well, we’ve seen the facelift version of the Renault Duster out on the Indian streets multiple times. However, the recent spyshot brings something new into focus.
Seen in the images below, the upcoming duster has the gear stalk covered from all sides with a newspaper. If it was just the same, with a new gear knob, the company wouldn’t have bothered to hide it. This makes us assume that the test mule is of an automatic version which the market has been waiting for.
What’s also seen in these images is a new infotainment system with new buttons. Although it is not clear if there will be a touchscreen sitting on top.
Powering the Duster facelift will be the same powertrains. A 1.5L dCi diesel with 85 PS, 1.5L dCi diesel with 110 PS & a 1.6L petrol with 102 PS. Reports suggest a new 1.2L TCe petrol motor capable of 123.3 BHP could also be introduced. But it is doubtful if this smaller engine would make it to Indian shores.
The new Duster will continue with 4×4 & 4×2 layout.
Changes expected:
  • New front fascia
  • New interior trim
  • New dashboard
  • New alloy wheels
  • New LED tail lamp
  • New headlamp
  • New rear bumper
  • New roof rails
