    New generation Renault Duster unveiled; coming to India soon

    by V3Cars Team on Thursday, Dec 07 2017

    It might seem that it is an old piece of news, but it is not. We already know that the new generation Duster SUV made its world debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. However, the all new Duster was showcased wearing Renault’s budget brand Dacia badge. Now, the new model has been finally unveiled wearing the Renault badge, and this is what we will be getting in our market. The Renault or Dacia Duster compact SUV is a highly successful global model and Renault banks big on it. The Duster has already sold more than 1 million units in the global markets, and the new generation model is all set to heighten its popularity. The French auto maker has done a good job on overhauling the Duster which has evolved over its previous model. The new-gen model has also become much more contemporary and premium than its predecessor and has taken its appeal to the next level.

    The 2018 new generation Renault Duster has become much more stylish and bolder than the outgoing model, and the comprehensive styling updates are remarkable making it look like a model from a segment higher. Although the basic design language is still patent Duster, the evolutionally appeal has made the difference. We also love the fact that it now looks more up-class without losing its butch stance.

    When styling updates are concerned, the all new Renault Duster comes with a new larger grille. The headlights have been set wider apart to make the SUV’s face appear eider. There are new LED Daytime Running Lights split into three sections to highlight the headlight cluster. Renault has also redesigned the bonnet which looks bolder with a U-shaped character line. The SUV also gets front and rear skid plates finished in silver, which have bull bar appeal and comes with scratch resistant coating to keep its shine intact.

     

    The new-gen Duster gets a higher beltline, while its windscreen has been moved forward by 100 mm to offer better space on the side. The bold and premium appeal is enhanced more with new aluminium roof bars and new eye-catching 17 inch alloy wheels. The SUV’s rear flaunts new X-shaped tail lights, which are reminiscent of the Jeep Renegade, but sadly the size of the tail lights hasn’t grown.

    The new 2018 Renault Duster also gets cabin upgrades to make things more interesting and fresh. It gets new rectangular air con vents, new steering wheel which is a bit Captur-like, chrome accents on the dashboard for an up-class appeal, while touchscreen infotainment system has been updated as well.

    The Duster actually established the Renault brand in India and started the trend of compact SUVs in the country with its massive success when it first launched in 2012. Thus, Renault will definitely launch the second generation Duster in India. Although it is believed that the new-gen Duster’s Indian launch might be pushed towards late 2018 to give some time to the recently launched Captur, it might come sooner. And we hope that the all new Renault Duster makes its Indian debut at the 2018 Auto Expo.
