Renault India has introduced a new RxZ Plus variant for its bestselling Duster SUV. The variant offers all the features available on the RxZ variant but does away with the rear air-con unit. The new variant is priced Rs 5000 cheaper than the top spec Duster variant.
Reports suggest that the decision to introduce the variant was the result of feedback received from a number of customers mentioning the lack of rear leg room with the ac unit attached. Renault has priced the Duster RxZ Plus diesel at Rs 12.13 lakh (ex-showroom,Delhi) while the Duster RxZ Option Pack trim is priced at Rs 12.18 lakh and gets features like leather seats and satellite navigation system as well.Renault has not made an official announcement about this variant, however, it is listed under the equipment section of the compact SUVs official webpage.
Details on whether this change will be incorporated to the soon-to-be-launched Terrano which is essentially the same car, but it looks evident that Renault is ensuring that even the slightest glitches with the Duster are eliminated to give the SUV a fair chance to face the onslaught launched by the Ford Ecosport.
