    The Duster, with the new 1.3-liter turbo petrol engine, will start at a price of 10.49 lakh (ex-showroom) and will go all the way up to 13.59 lakh (ex-showroom). The 1.3 litre turbo version comes in three manual trims priced at 10.49 lakh, 11.39 lakh and 11.99 lakh, respectively, while the CVT (automatic) variants are tagged at 12.99 lakh and 13.59 lakh.

    "The launch of Renault Duster equipped with the 1.3 litre turbo petrol engine marks a new chapter in the Duster journey in India. This is a world-class engine and powers our successful global SUVs and crossovers like Kadjar and Arkana," Renault India Operations Country CEO and Managing Director Venkatram Mamillapalle said in a statement.

    Duster has achieved an iconic status in one of the most dynamic automotive markets, and over the years, adventure enthusiasts as well as numerous Indian families have established a strong bond with this SUV, he added.
