Last fate Renault introduced the Duster crossover for the Ukrainian market of updates, and our editorial staff decided to find out about the number of changes in the number of bestsellers on the market. Although the Duster is actually produced by the Romanian Dacia plant, the model is supplied to the Ukrainian market under the French brand Renault.
A similar situation has become a restyled crossover. At that time, like a Dacia Duster, having eliminated quite obvious “facelift” with a change of lighting equipment, its crossover under the “diamond” brand changed minimally.
Tim not less, varto know, scho zvn_shnі vіdmіnnostі mіzh doreystalіngo pozashlyahovik i restylіngovіvim minimal. There were more transformations in the middle. Prote about everything in order.
Trochs of history
Another generation of the Duster crossover was globally presented in spring 2017 and already in the spring of 2018, it appeared in Ukraine after an extraordinary presentation, where journalists were organized a reshkod for the poshlyahovik.
From that hour, the model of a sprig of rocks became a bestseller on the Ukrainian market, both in its own niche and as a wild one. The situation on the global markets also looked optimistic for the Duster.
Then, roaring the popularity of the crossover, the Renault Group failed to carry out a planned modernization of the model, and it lost the SUV demanded in the competitive environment.
< p>Before the speech, in India, the first generation of “Duster” was released before the last year, but the production was still spiced up with environmentally friendly mircovan.

Globally, the Duster crossover is the best-selling Romanian brand and has already reached two million sales.
It was understood that the Duster is left with one of the key models for the brand and will require an incremental update. Accept until a new flagship based on the Bigster concept appears.
< p>Yak vzhe vzhe was appointed higher, zzovni pozashlyahovik having recognized the minimum change. In fact, only the number of wheels for the top-end configuration has been changed (with that, the stench is already optional).
Vyrobnik respected that specially designed 16-inch wheels were tested in an aerodynamic tube and help the fully driven version on wikidate 5,8 grams less CO2.
Well, the nutrition of the fire efficiency is also important, but, you need to know that the stink is not bad. I want to splurge on dodatkovі 7 848 UAH.
Otherwise, in reference to the Duster itself, which the Motorcar editors tested in 2020, you can read about a detailed test drive in this material.
In the exterior of the “Duster” it is still possible to add a chrome-plated radiator grille, pseudo-metal fittings on the front and rear bumpers and LED-day running lights in the corporate C-design, which is now exactly in the “base”.
The rear lights, although they have not changed, but everything is so original that it reminds of similarity with Jeep models.
Surely, optionally, the crossover can be custom-made in the “metalic” color scheme, even the basic color for all trim levels is white.
As it was already planned, the most important changes for the restyling of Renault Duster were in the middle.
In the first place, the panel of accessories was reviewed and a new information and distribution system was installed with an 8-inch touch screen. Now the updates to the crossover are supported by Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and already sound navigation.
In another way, the seat trim has also been changed again, and the handless, narrow armrest has become wide and now covers a 1.1-liter space for saving.
Vrakhovuchi, since in Ukraine only two complete sets (Life and Zen) are sold, then all the equipment had to be divided into three subgroups: basic, top and optional. However, as you might guess, the top version still does not guarantee the availability of all options.
Thus, in the standard version of Life, air conditioning is already available, and climate control can be omitted only as an option.
Parktronic is available only in the top, but in the options – a rear-view camera or a circular-view system.
Front and rear electroslopid omni are installed only for Zen, like the rear seats, which are folded in proportions of 1/3 and 2/3.
In fact, now the buyers of “Duster” have taken away the ability to independently personalize their car and add money, as it suits their budget. Base equipment, which was actually sold without air conditioning, can also be found in the price list of the brand.
Under the hood
At the beginning of sales of the updated Renault Duster in Ukraine, only two engines appeared: a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with 115 hp and a 1.5-liter diesel engine with 110 hp
< p>At this moment, in fact, nothing has changed except for the fact that the factory versions of HBO are no longer officially promoted from the factory. in one configuration (with a diesel and front-wheel drive) you can buy an “automatic”. jpg” alt=”Test drive of updated Renault Duster: dosi popular crossover” />
< p>In general, there are five versions of the technical warehouse crossover and lie in the presence of a front-mounted drive and a dual-drive engine.
Also, hypothetically, nine variants of the Renault Duster (5 transmissions and 2 configurations) can be reversed. It could have been ten, but the Life package with automatic transmission is not for sale.
The same number of individual characters can be seen from the actual, not essentially changed car. Two fates, if our editorial team tested the Renault Duster earlier, the emotions were not too positive.
For the first time, the Duster blew a little, although it didn’t change its essence.
In the cabin so self-satisfied with the space, four people got together. On the back sofa, you can put the fifth person, but then you will become clearly more spacious. .jpg” alt=”Test drive of updated Renault Duster: dosi popular crossover” />
< p>Top complete set of Duster can be basic words, which can be used in a modern car: – front seats and rear seats, USD roses for a multimedia system, electrosmokers and air conditioning (or climate control).
Well, it’s good to know that you have the top version of the options, but here you can also take the level of affordable comfort.
It is impossible not to say that this car is not for long-distance mandriving, but it accepts swedish ones. So, the car easily enters the cruising speed, it reacts nervously to nervousness at such a pace.
And the axis of the hem shifts to a small speed, it may be incomprehensibly comfortable with the comfort of the same “great poshlyahovik”.
< h4>No Road
< p> Vtіm tsey crossover buv rozrobleny shvidshe not for comfort, but navpaki. One of the advantages of the “Duster” is its posh ability.
For the skin presentation of the model, it was repeatedly cited that Renault Duster can perform on the road. Navit, more official photos of the car were destroyed against the backdrop of natural landscapes.
The horns of the bells have already historically creaked behind the zashlyahovik, and in the other generation, a monitor has reached the back of the slope (that descent), on which you can hit the sash, the compass.
< p>The optional package of cameras allows you to marvel at what you see yourself under the wheels, and the presence of a full drive and a short forward gear can even work off-road. let's talk about it already.
Before talking, in fact, the car is often robbed by special (recovery and poshuk) services, as they work along the boundaries of asphalt roads.
At the time of the debut of another generation of Renault, the Dacia gave great respect to the security systems in the Duster. There are all the “budget” assistants here: the course stability system, help when starting on the slope and downhill, ABS and the emergency galvanization system.
Tim no less, the European Commission for the Assessment of Vehicle Safety (Euro NCAP) gave more than three stars to Duster in 2017. If you want to pass a yakby crash test twice at a time, then the rating could be higher, vrakhovyuchi new standards up to Euro NCAP safety.
Varto also add that the German experts of the Technical Supervision Service (Technischer Überwachungsverein – TÜV) also made this crossover up to the problem after two or three years of operation. If you want, maybe a lot of cars of the front version of the Duster have been here, as if, according to the words of the virobnik, the necessary details were not left in the novelty.
Now to buy?
Crazy, the Renault Duster is still in its budget niche, even if the basic package can be bought for 598,800 UAH (approximately 16,210 dollars at the current exchange rate). Base version), the current situation in the country has changed dramatically, like the exchange rate of the hryvnia.
Tim no less, Duster is propagating the same calm ride in the city that’s all the same roadless road beyond the boundaries of the asphalt.
In the previous test, our editorial staff indicated that the average was 6.4 liters per 100 km, and the test drive of the updated crossover only confirmed the numbers – 6.9 l/100 km. It’s possible, for a fully-driven diesel engine on the “mechanics” of the truck, or else, take a look at the front drive on the “gasoline”. To that it is possible to play in zovnіshnosti to the remaining Chinese competitors. However, the very first thing I know, the Romanian brand can claim a guaranteed price and stable service for Renault.
In the future, Duster can check for hybridization or new electricity. In addition, if you need a change and a budget-friendly car, then you should choose the most popular car in Ukraine.
