“Coming Soon” is what greets you when you enter Duster’s page on Renault India’s official site. We indeed know with so many test mule catches that this car is indeed hitting our roads sooner.
Further Renault also mentions:
“An SUV that is as powerful as it is sleek and stylish. An automobile that’s won accolades across the globe. It’s the Renault Duster.
With a unique design that’s both trendy and compact, the Duster will change the way India looks at SUVs. “
The prominent features of the compact SUV listed are:
- Stylish Chrome grille
- Twin barrel headlamps
- 16” Alloy Wheels, Front Fog Lamps
- Keyless entry
- ABS with Brake Assist & EBD
- Dual front Airbags
- Plush Leather Upholstery
- 4 Speaker Music System with USB, AUX-IN & Bluetooth Connectivity
- Satellite Audio & phone control
- Rear Defogger, rear wiper & washer
- Electrically adjustable ORVMs
- Rear parking sensors
- Boot capacity of 475 litres
This clears a lot of air about Duster and with the above mentioned features it does look loaded. We expect the car to be launched in the price range of 7-11 lakhs. Also, it might be powered by the 1.5L petrol mill from Nissan Sunny whereas the 1.5L diesel mill from Fluence would be offered in 85bhp and 108bhp tunes. Expected launch month for Duster is July and this definitely would enable Duster to take the first mover advantage from its arch rival Ford’s EcoSport and we also just got to know GM is also preparing its Trax to take on in the compact SUV space worldwide.
