A low-cost yet effective "camouflage" solution was used by Renault's Indian division to disguise what is believed to be the six-speed EDC transmission set to be implemented in the 2016 Duster facelift specifically designed for the Indian market. The refreshed SUV is expected to be different than the Euro-spec Dacia Duster facelift launched late 2013 and according to local reports will be offered in automatic guise only with the 110 PS 1.5-liter dCi paired to a standard 2WD setup or an optional 4WD layout.

 

In addition, there are some rumors pointing out the 1.6-liter gasoline engine will be paired to an optional automated manual transmission, probably the Easy-R unit launched recently on the Dacia-badged Logan, Logan MCV, Sandero and Sandero Stepway.

An official launch of the 2016 Renault Duster in Indian specification will occur before the end of the year.
