Renault SA’s product manager Jeffrey Allison, told The Corner that only 100 will be available but at the same price as the standard Renault Duster 1.6 16V Dynamique 4×2.

The upgrade to the 1.6 Dynamique 4×2 adds:

Duster-branded nudge bar
Limited Edition 16” alloy wheel rims
Wheel-arch protectors and
Reversing camera

The car’s engine makes 77kW at 5750rpm and 148Nm at 3750rpm with a claimed average fuel consumption of 7.6 litres/100km.

“The Duster is an authentic SUV that’s tough, unpretentious and versatile,” Renault SA says. “It’s a proven fit for any individual or family seeking adventure.

“It’s the first Renault designed to meet European standards yet conquer those international markets where roads are considerably more rugged – a formidable contender in South Africa’s SUV B-segment.”
