If you’re planning to make your escape in-town or out on the open road you might want to get behind the wheel of EXPLORE, the latest addition to the Renault’s forever tough DUSTER SUV line-up. But I suggest you put foot because there aren’t many available!
Since launching in September 2013, more than 10 000 new SUV buyers in SA have opted to go the distance in the dynamic yet down-to-earth Duster and the objective behind the release of the petrol-powered Renault Duster 1.6 77kW Dynamique 4×2 Limited Edition EXPLORE is to celebrate this achievement.
The Duster Limited Edition EXPLORE comes with an array of on-board extras and according to Renault Product Manager Jeffrey Allison, with just 100 units available, Renault is offering a limited number of aspiring SUV owners a meaningful value-add proposition: the opportunity to purchase an EXPLORE at the same price as the standard Renault Duster 1.6 16V Dynamique 4×2.
EXPLORE THE EXTRAS : Renault is renowned for being ‘all-inclusive’ with vehicles spec’d beyond their class in terms of technical specifications, interior and exterior trim, intelligent technologies as well as active and passive safety features and fitments.
The Renault Duster SUV line-up is no exception. An upgrade of its 1.6 Dynamique 4×2 sibling, the Duster 1.6 77kW Dynamique 4×2 LIMITED EDITION EXPLORE comes with even more equipment included such as:
- Duster- branded nudge bar
- NEW Limited Edition 16” alloy wheels
- Wheel arch protectors
- Reverse camera
Renault’s 1.6 16V petrol engine has received high praise for its reliability and top performance. Naturally aspirated, this popular powerplant produces maximum power output of 77kW at 5 750 r/min and peak torque of 148 Nm at 3 750 r/min whilst maintaining enviable fuel consumption levels (7.6 litres/100km 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 16V 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.
The Limited Edition newcomer remains true to its heritage with its open invitation to simply get out there and EXPLORE!
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 77kW Dynamique 4×2 Limited Edition EXPLORE comes with a 5-year/150 000km mechanical warranty. Standard on the Duster range is a 3-year/45 000km service plan (with service intervals at 15 000km intervals) and a 6-year anti-corrosion warranty.
