Dear Readers,


I had been loving the Duster for its macho look from the outside. I had done very less comparisons with the other vehicle and very less research too before finalizing this.


Duster RxL 85ps dci


Purchsed: October 2015


Exteriors


Pros


The exterior is too good with the macho design making the car lookers crazy. Its tough looking with the front chrome grills. Its a ideal SUV with nice ground clearance, heighted and the wheels give a strong look too. The suspension is very good.


Cons


The door handles are not too fancy or of tough material may be its seen in more older times in cars. Manual ORVM. Everyone suggested me to get  anti corrosion treatment for the vehicle lower area. I don't understand if the under-body is very much obvious to catch rust then why doesn't the company gets it pre coated before they sell. The version does not comes with pre-installed Rear view camera and sensors being a SUV kind look it really helps to have it. The


Interiors


Pros


The seating capacity is very much spacious with lot much leg space for both the front and back sitters. The driving view is at a higher height comfortable for long journeys. I have read a lot many reviews of the clutch being hard but its not that much. The dashboard is very much spacious to keep the belongings like wallet, mobile, etc. as compared to other cars having a flat dashboard. The boot space is very huge to accommodate good amount of luggage. Easy to use audio controls from backside of the steering wheel. The hand rest is provide at the middle of the back seat giving good convenience. The back seats are foldable extending the boot space area to a very large amount.


Cons


The music system info are not so easy to read as it uses white light at the background. Foot rest for the driver does not exist. Power windows are not on one push for the driver side. The backside windows does not go down completely just like the older Fiat taxis. Being a SUV kind design it will be good to have backside AC vents for better cooling. The quality of the inside locks or handle is not of good quality. The door handles @ the backside are difficult to locate in dark sometimes may be because of color background or the foreground. I was struggling with the issue in bluetooth where the listener at the other end hears very less sound as compared to an external Sony Bluetooth device attached in my other vehicle.


Performance
