      Renault Duster AWD

      Sold the Laura TSI and went and queued up to buy a Duster AWD. We booked a silver color. Great to drive, superb gear ratios, exceptional ride and car like handling. It can do fast highway cruising and can do decently tough trails too. Its a car that has many faces and is a rugged, uncomplicated hardware to live with. The renault service in Bangalore is pretty good too to make folks take few risks off road. It has been driven moderately with only one longish highway run. Needless to say, I was completely at ease with this car and found the long drive not at all tiresome. The odo has some 3.5k on it and the top whack so far has been close to 150kmph. FE stand at 14kpml. Not sure whether that is a good or a bad one.

      Interiors are just OK in terms of quality, the seats are very comfortable, leg space is adequate and ground clearance is good. Can be a very good weekend explorer and a smart office goer too err... that is if one manages to keep the job!


      Few pics of the car.
