Things Wrong With the Renault Duster BS6

Things Wrong With the Renault Duster BS6:

The Renault Duster was first launched in 2012 in Indian market. By then, it became so popular among the Indians. The car was loved by every buyer who wanted to buy a compact SUV. This was the only C-SUV to come with AWD as an option. But later gradually, it lost its charm and popularity. We included everything wrong with the BS6 Renault Duster and why it lost its popularity in this article. So read the full article on Things Wrong With the Renault Duster BS6 to know more.


The C-SUV segment in India is very competitive. The Hyundai Creta is now the segment leader. Almost every car in this segment offers amazing features and new gen looks. But the Renault Duster looks almost similar to the model of 2012. The AWD, which was the USP of this vehicle also got removed from the vehicle. More over, the car lacks so many features which it should have in this competitive field.

Aesthetic Appeal:

The Renault Duster looks macho. Some likes this design while some don’t. The design language of this C-SUV looks kind of out dated but those who want a subtle and macho looks will love this design. So its love or hate design. I personally love this design than its competition.


Interior of the Renault Duster needs some serious work. It definitely looks out dated in terms of interior appeal, fit & finish and over all design. It retains the same old design appeal from 2012 which is one of the major downside of Renault Duster BS6.

Bank for your buck!

If you want value for money proposition, then you can buy any model until RXZ 1.3 Turbo Petrol Manual. The ideal and best model to buy in Renault Duster BS6 is the top end manual, RXZ 1.3 Turbo Petrol. The top end RXZ AT feels really over priced as it costs almost 2 lakhs more than the top end manual.

So avoid buying top end AT and second top AT and just opt for the top end manual as its faster and fun to drive. The drive quality of this C-SUV is also amazing.

Lack of Diesel:

The Renault Duster in its BS6 Avtar is not available with diesel engine. The 1.5-L, Inline-4 Cylinder, Diesel motor has been discontinued which is disappointing. But this is also the case with BS6 Maruti Suzuki cars as of now.

Build Quality:

The build quality of the Renault Duster is not the best also not the worst. It scored 3 stars in Global NCAP crash test which is decent. But this is also the case with the Hyundai Creta (new gen not the pre facelift model) and KIA Seltos. So this might not be a deal breaker for some.
