            Honestly, I didn't purchase 'this' car, but an rxe dci model in November 2015 (AS 23 P 4281). Almost 5 years , 46000 odd kilometers, normal wear-and- tear, comparisons with other vehicles on the road and hopefully, wishing it to stay faithful , I'd say my car has been good to our family. I had driven small cars earlier and this is my first SUV; a base model, power steering , front power windows, steering wheel height adjust were the only things i got. No 'fog' lights, rear wash wipe, car music system, seat covers, foot mats or 4wd but still, i was happy. Drive it well and it'd surprise you with its car like response, without issues with its size. I drive mostly in 50-80kmph range, which has helped in avoiding accidents (till date). I wished for 4wd but it was beyond reach. Road presence, boot capacity, spacious seating etc are the good points. Weak ac , poor equipment levels offered in base models by Renault, high maintenance and service costs are disadvantages. As for this car, after bs6, Renault has gone all petrol for the duster. I don't know how that would be but surely they could have deployed a 4wd model . Else, it would only be a pseudo urban SUV and not what it really Is in its home country, Romania !

            *Car seems to be good, but price seems to be higher. *Even previous diesel 2nd variant on-road price is ~10.5 lakhs. But petrol variants seems to be overpriced *Ahead of launch every one expects s-cross petrol at a lower price than diesel variants. *Under this current economic situation, price for this car is not reasonable
