The vehicle features superior engineering, stylish design, safety and comfort. “The Duster range offers unmatched performance, drive ability and efficiency,” claims the company. The stylish and sturdy SUV has appealing looks that convey both solidity and dynamism with the exterior design reflecting its iconic SUV appeal, said the press statement.
