MORE than 10 000 people have bought a Renault Duster since its September 2013 launch, and to mark this milestone, Renault has launched a limited Explore edition of its popular sport utility vehicle.

Selling for R258 900, the 4x2 Explore comes with an array of on-board extras. But, warns Renault’s product manager Jeffrey Allison, you’d have to put foot to get one, for they mean what they say with “limited edition”.

Allison said only 100 units of the Explore edition will be sold in South Africa, all at the same price as the standard Renault Duster 1,6 16V Dynamique 4x2.

Lots extra, except the price

Allison said all Renault models are known for being “all-inclusive” with their specification levels, 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 4x2 sibling, the Duster 1,6 77 kW Dynamique 4x2 Limited Edition Explore comes with even more equipment included.

• Duster-branded nudge bar.

• New Limited Edition 16-inch alloy wheels.

• Wheel arch protectors.

• Reverse camera.

Under the hood

Renault’s 1,6 16 V petrol engine has received high praise for its reliability and top performance.

Naturally aspirated, this popular powerplant produces maximum power output of 77 kW at 5 750 rpm and peak torque of 148 Nm at 3 750 rpm, while maintaining enviable fuel consumption levels (7,6 litres per 100 km 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 16 V 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.

What the owners said

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 77 kW Dynamique 4x2 Limited Edition Explore comes with a five-year/150 000 km mechanical warranty. Standard on the Duster range is a three-year/45 000 km service plan (with service intervals at 15 000 km intervals) and a six-year anti-corrosion warranty.
