The Renault Duster pretty much kick-started the compact SUV segment in India when it arrived in 2012 and is now the automaker's second most-selling offering in the country.so, yes, it will come to India and given the trend in India, we might see it make its way here sooner and we can not rule out a glimpse at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo followed by the launch soon after. At the back, the new Renault Duster gets chrome trim for the license plate as well.
The basic dimensions remain as before, but the Duster's exterior has been completely redesigned, albeit without too much of a departure from its predecessor's rugged design language. Now, the one that was shown had the Dacia badge, but Renault has finally come out with the one wearing the company's badge. Also, the circular air conditioning vents on the former's dashboard have been given up in the favour of rectangular ones in the latter Duster, without any other changes to the dashboard. The big difference is, of course, a new front grille which copies the design seen on the Koleos and Espace, as well as Renault's trucks.
The 2018 Renault Duster will reportedly come with a choice of two petrol engines and a diesel engine. This can be specified in both 4x4 and 4x2 configurations.
Depending on the engine selected, buyers can choose between front-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive, and various self-shifting gearbox options are available in addition to traditional manual transmission. A new signature LED daytime running lights divided into three sections highlight the headlamp cluster. There are new aluminium finished roof bars as well along with the new 17-inch alloy wheels that sport a rather interesting design.
The India launch of the new Renault Duster could still be some time away.
