Well, I beg to differ here! As i mentioned in the previous post, the 2015 Duster has brought some big changes to the interiors and going by what I'm hearing, as well the pics I've seen, Renault needs to be commended for that. They've upgraded the dash, the steering, the instrument cluster, the MID, the quality of materials, the seat fabric, added the driver's armrest and what not! Heck, they've even added cruise control to the 2WD models! They've silently made these changes in the current model itself, while they could've opted to wait for the facelift, which will be seen in India in the near future. So full marks to Renault here. Though I haven't seen the Avventura extensively, but had a decent look at it during my last visit to the SVC. And so, I can strongly say that the 2015 Renault Duster matches evenly with the EVO / Avventura if we talk about the build quality / features. The cruise control and Eco mode put the Duster ahead IMO. Design is a personal choice, so saying that the Avventura is better would be unfair. As much as I drool over the tail lamp on the Punto Evo / Avventura, I love the butch looks of the Duster! About the spare wheel placement, I think it looks stunning on the Avventura, but the mechanism isn't the most practical one we've seen on cars with a tail-gate mounted spare wheel. About the NCAP ratings, don't know how much they hold true for these "Made for Indian market" cars, but the Punto definitely feels more "solid". I haven't driven the 90HP Punto, so won't be able to comment about its driveability compared to the 85PS Duster.
