Duster diesel with 6-Speed AMT coming soon, spotted testing


So, finally we have pictures of what plenty of potential customers have been waiting for.
Renault will offer a diesel automatic version of the Duster with the facelift model coming soon. Expect the facelift to debut at the 2016 Indian Auto Expo.
This automatic gearbox will be offered only on the 110 PS diesel version.
The gearbox in question is a 6-Speed AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) & not a dual clutch automatic gearbox sold internationally. Officials claim that the price difference between these two gearboxes in India would have been around Rs. 2 lakh, hence AMT has been finalised for India to keep costs under check.
This AMT variant will be priced up to Rs. 1 lakh higher than the manual variant.
The new Duster will continue with 4×4 & 4×2 layout.
Changes expected on the facelift:
New front fascia
New interior trim
New dashboard
New alloy wheels
New LED tail lamp
New headlamp
New rear bumper
New roof rails
New infotainment system
