The Renault Duster was one of the most successful models or SUVs sold by a French carmaker in India. It has been in production for almost a decade and recently Renault announced that they are stopping Duster production in India. According to several online reports, Renault has started working on a new generation Duster SUV and it could be launched in India as well. The Renault Duster is an international model and is also available in many other markets. Ever since the news broke online, we’ve seen a number of digital renders for the next generation Duster SUV, and here we have a render image showing what an India-dependent all-new Renault Duster might look like.
The render image is shared by Carscoops on their website. Inspired by the artist Dacia Bigster for a completely new duster. There is news that the production version of the upcoming Duster will have a design inspired by Bigstar which is an idea SUV of Dacia. The Duster will be slightly smaller than the Bigstar in terms of size. The render image seen here gives Duster a much more muscular look. The overall design is boxy as it should be in any SUV. The front has a prominent grille that is designed to look like an extension of a headlamp.
The headlamps have LEDs and the bumper has a muscular design It has a silver colored skid plate and a low grill with a sweet comb design. Coming to the side profile, the car has square wheel arches with thick black cladding around it. The thick black cladding gives the car a rough look. The car also got a new dual tone alloy wheel. It combines a 5-door SUV and the door handle for the second row of artist columns. This gives the side profile a clean look.
Coming to the rear, the car gets a Y-shaped LED tail lamp. Just like the front, the back also has a silver colored skid plate and it has a muscular design. The render car uses the Dacia logo on the car, however, the Indian version will have the Renault logo. It is important to note that the image shown here is only a render and may differ from the original or production version of the new generation Duster.
The Renault Duster will be based on the CMF-B platform. This platform will be modified for Indian conditions. The all-new Duster is expected to launch in the Indian market between 2023-2024 and will compete with cars like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and other SUVs. The international version of Duster is available with a 4 × 4 system, however, it is not clear whether the Indian version will get this feature. Renault discontinued the Duster’s diesel engine variant from the market and the car was only available with a petrol engine. The upcoming version is likely to be offered with a petrol hybrid engine.
