The power unit that is already “feeds” various cars of all 3 automakers (Renault, Nissan and even Mercedes-Benz), substitute the Renault Duster will get two versions of power.
The first capacity is 128 HP (96 kW) and 240 Nm of torque, the second engine version of the small volume already has 148 HP (110 kW) and 250 Nm of torque. Despite the fact that absolute figures of power and torque wasn’t that great for the 1.3-liter engine is a great result.
