Renault India launched the Renault Duster Explore today. Renault says that The Limited Edition Duster Explore ‘ celebrates the essence of adventure and symbolizes the indomitable spirit of exploring the outdoors ‘.
‘Nouveau Orange’ seems to be the theme for this limited edition. Renault has garnished the Duster Explore with plenty of orange accents on both the inside and the outside.
The exterior gets a similar bumper like we’ve seen on the Duster Adventure edition, housing two auxillary lamps. Other than that, it gets an orange accent around the Renault logo on the anthracite alloys, off-set stripe running along the bonnet and orange stripes on the blacked out wing mirrors as well. The B and D pillars get a matte black treatment, while a matte black sticker runs along the side board with ‘Explore’ branding.
Speaking about the new Limited Edition Duster Explore, Mr. Sumit Sawhney, Country CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations shared, “With Duster, we created a new segment in the Indian automotive industry. Duster plays a key role in Renault’s growth plans in India. As a forward-looking company, we have kept the Duster fresh and contemporary, exceeding customer expectations and building on the legacy of India’s favourite SUV. We are confident that the Duster will continue to be the benchmark in this category, and the newly launched Limited Edition Duster Explore will further build the Duster brand in India.”
The interiors see a generous dose of orange as well. Orange accents highlight the AC vents, the periphery of the seats and the floor mats as well. The gear shift bellow gets orange stitching and so does the leather wrapped steering wheel. Renault’s attention to detail needs to be commended here, little touches, such as the backlight on the switches and knobs and the highlight around the instrument cluster carries the Nouveau Orange theme.
The Limited Edition Duster Explore remains unchanged mechanically, housing the potent 1.5 dCi under the hood. It will be available in 2 variants, the Limited Edition Duster 85 PS RXL Explore and the Limited Edition Duster 110 PS RXL Explore at an introductory pricing of Rs. 9.99 Lakh and Rs. 11.10 Lakh (ex-Delhi), respectively.
