The mid-level RxS trim will get the AWD system.
2019 Renault Duster facelift is ready to go on sale on coming 8th July. While the official launch is just a few days away, multiple pictures and details of the SUV have emerged on the web. According to a fresh media report, the prices of the entry-level variant of the new duster facelift will remain unchanged – i.e. Rs 7.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The top-spec variant, however, will see a minor price hike.
The French carmaker will introduce the AWD (all-wheel-drive) system on the mid-level RxS trim, which is currently offered only on the range-topping RxZ trim. Since the 2019 Renault Duster RxS AWD will miss out on some features compared to the fully-loaded RxZ AWD variant, it will be relatively more affordable. The pre-facelift Duster RxZ AWD is available at Rs 13.09 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Read – 2020 Renault Captur Makes Global Debut

Inside, the SUV’s facelifted version receives an upgraded infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, a new steering wheel and rectangular AC vents on the centre console. The coloured dash insert and lots of mock aluminum and chrome usage add a premium touch. Read – Renault Triber MPV Launch & Other Details
