New generation Blue dCi 114 power unit is already available for purchase for new 4x4 Duster machine. Joining Blue dCi 115 4x2, the new guy features the latest systems for reducing emissions and adds some kick to the overall performance rates and vehicle’s capabilities. Let’s check it out!
In addition to the “selective catalytic reduction” system (SCR), Blue dCi 115 engines operate with new Air-Water exchanger, higher injection pressure and new transmission ratios. Blue dCi 115 engines come with CO2 output of 123g/km and achieve 60.1mpg with 260Nm of torque at 2,000rpm. Furthermore, Blue dCi 115 4x4 is available with manual gearbox across three trim levels: Essential, Comfort and Prestige. The first one, Essential, features 16-inch Fidji steel wheels, body-colored front and rear bumpers, manual air conditioning, heat adjustable driver’s seat, DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity.
Comfort trim, on the other hand, comes with 16-inch Cyclade alloys, front-seat armrest, leather steering wheel, graphite cloth upholstery, rear parking camera and sensors, electric front and rear windows, heated and electrically adjustable door mirrors, MediaNav 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system and 7-function on-board computer.
And on top of the range we have Prestige trim level. Available with 17-inch diamond-cut alloys, multi-view camera, blind spot warning, climate control and keyless entry.
All-new Duster carries over the same off-road capabilities as predecessor models and comes with high ground clearance of 210mm, approach and departure angles of 30 and 33 degrees, along with Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist. As a standard on the 4x4 version there’s a 4x4 monitor that incorporates a compass and notifies driver whether the vehicle’s angle is changed in real time. Neat!
