Going with the likes of Mahindra Mini Xylo, Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha and Ford EcoSport, Renault is all set to launch the Dacia Duster under the brand name of Renault in June. Though we aren’t sure about this as Renault has kept a mum on this till now.
Also, Renault displayed the Duster at the Auto Expo 2012 in New Delhi. The originally Dacia Duster, does a very good job for the original Romanian manufacturer Dacia which is owned by Renault. This Mini SUV shares its roots with the Logan(Yes, the Mahindra Renault Logan which failed to attract private customers but got good(well, almost) numbers in taxis and the brand is now owned by Mahindra under the name of Verito). So, with a sedan base and SUV body(!), we don’t know how it handles around the corner in real world conditions but to know that only we are writing this and that, we might end up telling you the answer for this question this year around or afterwards June.
It is destined to get a 1.5 litre diesel unit and might be priced under 10 lacs to go well with the competition.
