Renault has officially confirmed the arrival of the new-generation Duster in the Indian market, although the launch timeline has not been disclosed yet. However, it is expected to be launched by 2025, with the possibility of an unveiling by the end of 2024.
The new Duster is expected to come in both 5-seater and 7-seater variants. The 5-seater variant will compete with SUVs like Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, Toyota Highlander, Maruti Grand Vitara, and Honda Elevate, while the 7-seater version will challenge SUVs like Hyundai Alcazar, Tata Safari, and MG Hector Plus.
Recently, the Renault subsidiary Dacia unveiled the new Duster in Portugal. The new Duster features a sleek and aggressive design, with slim LED DRLs and a slim grille. The bumper has a circular fog lamp assembly and air vents. The side profile includes roof rails, a spoiler, tapering rear-quarter glass, newly designed 18-inch black-out alloy wheels, black-out vertical ‘shade line’ under the mirrors, and fresh cladding under the rear doors. The rear end features Y-shaped tail lamps.
The upcoming Renault Duster in India may have a dual-screen setup with a 10.1-inch touchscreen for infotainment and a 7-inch display for the driver. It could also feature a three-spoke steering wheel with several controls, ADAS technology, a six-speaker Arkamys 3D sound system, wireless charging, wireless smartphone connectivity, and automatic climate control.
Globally, the new Duster will come with three engine options – a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder petrol hybrid, a 1.2-liter 3-cylinder turbo petrol, and a 1.0-liter petrol-LPG (only in select markets). The first two options are expected to be available in India as well.
