Renault Duster SUV MY16 has arrived

Anyone and everyone in the market for an SUV offering a host of value-adds and with an affordable price tag to boot, will be impressed with the tangible advancements and enhancements made to Renault’s popular Duster model. Renault Duster SUV MY16 has arrived and is ready to rock South African roads this summer.

Renault Duster’s success is a global tale and with Duster driving sales in excess of 10 000 units since its September 2013 launch in SA, Duster MY16 is writing the next chapter.

The first Renault model designed to meet stringent European standards - yet be capable of conquering international markets where usage and road conditions are considerably more rugged - three  years down the track, Duster continues to be a formidable contender in South Africa’s B-SUV segment.


While Duster MY16 model variants remain the same, exciting new product enhancements give each a fresh new look and feel.

As before, the upgraded Renault Duster variants come with a choice of two power plants:

  • The 1.6 77kW normally aspirated petrol engine (Expression and Dynamique 4x2 models)
