The latest SUV in 2019, Renault Duster has an eye-catching grille and a huge body that is wild-designed. Duster is a major change SUV of Renault in the Indian market because, in 2012, there was not yet a compact SUV with a monocoque platform, also spacious cabin and good manipulation have shown up in the Indian SUV market. Of course, the new Duster 2019 has all the advantages of the old model and also provides the same engine/drive-train option just like before, but these are only available for the RXS version.
From the official data, the mileage of Renault Duster is about 13.6-19.65 km/l, where the petrol engine (manual and CVT) is 13.6 km/l. The diesel version is 19.71 km/l, where the AMT is 19.6 km/l and the manual is 19.71 km/l. The mileage is acceptable since it has a 1.5L engine but still needs to be improved.
Actual Mileage in the City
The collection of Duster owners' feedbacks has been done after finished the city road tests, the mileage result of petrol engine in the Indian city is around 8-12 km/l and the diesel version is 13-20 km/l, which shows the large range of the actual results. This means if you drive on the road with bad conditions, the mileage will not as ideal as the official data.
Actual Mileage on the Highway
In addition, the actual mileage data for the petrol version on the highway is 14-16 km/l and 18-22 km/l is for the diesel version. Since Duster has two versions of 85PS and 106PS, the range of results will be large and also everyone driving habits are different. But overall, Duster is not having much difference between the official mileage data and the mileage when driving it the city under ideal situation and high-speed under normal situation. Anyway, improvement is still needed.
