Engine line-up is all Euro 6D-compliant and includes two petrol engines – the TCe 90 and TCe 130 – both in front-wheel drive. There’s one diesel engine – the Blue dCi 115 – which is available in both front-wheel or four-wheel drive. All models are fitted with a six-speed manual transmission.

The TCe 90 offers 90hp and 160Nm of torque with up to 45.6mpg (WLTP). The more powerful TCe 130 produces 130hp and 240Nm of torque and a 10.6-second zero to 62mph time. It also returns up to 45.6mpg.

The top payload of up to 492kg is offered on the TCe 90, while every other engine offers a maximum payload of up to 486kg. And all engines come with Stop&Start as standard.

Two trims are offered – Essential and Comfort – with all engines available on each trim. The Duster Commercial Essential comes with 16-inch steel wheels, body-coloured front and rear bumpers, roof bars, air con, electric front windows, height-adjustable driver’s seat, DAB radio with fingertip controls, Bluetooth phone connectivity and USB connection.

Opting for the Comfort specification adds 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, satin chrome exterior detail to the roof bars, door mirrors and skid plates, darkened rear glass, body-coloured door handles and heated, electrically adjustable door mirrors.

There are just three extras to choose from on each model: metallic paint, European mapping upgrade and a spare wheel.
