The reliable, robust and easy to drive SUV, Renault Duster is already ruling million hearts. This powerful drive has become a prime choice for all those enthusiasts who love driving a vehicle with off-road capabilities. It's compact dimensions, short overhangs, big clearance angles, high ground clearance and reinforced underbody that is apt for all terrain use. All these features just make you fall in love with this exalted SUV.

And now Nissan has come up with Terrano, which is again a compact SUV or you can say, a beautified and glorified version of Renault Duster. Yeah! I am crazy about SUV Renault Duster.

The new Duster gets a major facelift up front, which includes a new stylish grille, a new air intake and headlamps with daytime running lights. Although the side profile looks unchanged, 16-inch Dark Metal alloy wheels look good. The rear gets new tail-lamps and lots of chrome.

Minor changes to interiors such as steering mounted controls, infotainment system, reshuffled buttons etc. are evident in the photographs. Although mechanically it remains the same, rumour has it that the 1.6-litre petrol engine will be replaced by a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine.
