Is Renault’s Duster the most economical 4×4 on sale today?
Renault’s Duster has flown below the radar when it’s economy, but it also has another trick up it’s sleeve. After experiencing the Duster on soft sand and bushveld I was convinced the dusters 4×4 lock mode would pretty much take me anywhere.
It doesn’t have the ground clearance of more purpose-built off-roaders, but when it comes to karting around your family off the beaten track, and saving you much-needed rands on the fuel bill, there is nothing quite like Duster. With the wind at our backs, we managed fuel consumption of around 4l/100 and averaged 6.5l/100 even with some wheel spinning antics.
Watch the video to see how much adventure just R300 diesel buys you in a Duster.
