Equally at home in the mountains and in the city, our Crossover 4x4s are smaller, more maneuverable, and easier to drive than the larger Expedition and Standard 4x4s. They compromise a little on off-road ability, but most people aren’t planning to ford rivers and crawl through rocky fields on their trip, so for a majority of people they are a perfect fit. They handle gravel roads and lighter off-roading pretty well, but they are not equipped for the worst roads. As a more cost effective compromise, they are great for the majority of trips in Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. Our fleet has one standard model, the Renault Duster (or Dacia Duster in Europe), with some trim level variations.

Renault Duster

  • 2015 or newer production
  • 2.0 gasoline/petrol (143hp/195nm)
  • 6-speed manual or 4-speed automatic
  • 8-10 liters/100 km on the highway
  • 50 liter fuel tank
  • Locking transfer case (2wd, auto, and lock modes)
  • 215mm ground clearance
  • Power windows (on most)
  • Heated front seats (on most)
  • Heated windshield (on most)

During the winter we equip all our fleet with Maxxis SS-01 Presa SUV winter tires. In the summer most of the crossover class vehicles will have Goodyear Wrangler AT/SA all terrain tires or something similar.
