New Renault Duster facelift launch Date: Renault is all set to unveil the new Duster to the public. Now, the patent photo of it has also surfaced online. The next Duster and the Bigger SUV will share many similarities. The Hyundai Creta and Selto are two vehicles that the new Duster will compete with in the Indian market. Furthermore, the company has at last revealed the debut date.
New Renault Duster launch date
November 29, 2022, is when Portugal will play host to the global debut of the next Renault Duster. However, it’s still unclear exactly when it was released onto the Indian market. But we want to see it available in the Indian market by the end of 2025.
New Renault Duster Design
There are many parallels between the most recent Renault Duster and the Bigger SUV. For the most part, it looks like the biggest SUVs. Its design will be significantly more advanced than the Duster generation before it. Along with an LED headlight unit and sequential turn indicator, the front grille and bumper will be modified.
The redesigned silver skid plate on the front will also add to its charm. For the front, Y-shaped LED headlights are an option. The site profile also has ten spoke alloy wheels, door cladding, and roof rails. Its A and C pillars were introduced using the blackout idea.
The rear also has a silver speed plate, spoiler, and Y-shaped LED tail light unit to highlight the board. It will lead to a much bolder and more compact SUV presence on Indian highways.
New Renault Duster Cabin
The interior of the cabin will also be significantly altered in addition to the outward changes. The updated dashboard layout will include premium leather seating and a redesigned central control. It will also be available at several places with store touch functionality in addition to a host of other amazing features.
New Renault Duster Features list
|Launch Date in India||Expected by 2025|
|Market Rivals||Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Astor, Maruti Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder|
|Sunroof||Absent in the new Duster, a potential differentiator as rivals offer electric and panoramic sunroofs|
|Exterior Design||All-new design expected|
|Interior||Heavily revamped interior anticipated|
|Configurations||Expected to be available in two and three-row configurations|
It is expected to contain features like a large touch screen infotainment system, a digital instrument cluster, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, in order to compete in the Indian market. Other characteristics include a USB Type C connector, air purification, cruise control, air conditioning, a driver seat that can be adjusted in height, dual-zone climate control, air conditioning, and power steering for passengers in the backseat.
Apart from this, the Duster isn’t equipped with a sunroof in the recently disclosed patent images. Although this pattern image is meant for foreign markets, we expect it to be offered in India with a panoramic sunroof or an electronic voice-activated sunroof. This is mostly because competitors’ panoramic sunroofs are now standard.
New Renault Duster Engine
The company intends to give it a 1.2-liter, 120-bhp engine under the hood. A 1.02 liter gasoline hybrid engine with 140 horsepower and a 1.3 lightweight turbocharged petrol engine with 170 horsepower are also possibilities. However, specific details on the engine option that would be offered in the Indian market have not been made public. Nevertheless, according to other media reports, India would likely get the Duster in diesel, powerful hybrid, and plug-in hybrid configurations.
New Renault Duster Price in India
If the Renault Duster is introduced to the Indian market, its starting price is expected to be between Rs 10 lakh and Rs 15 lakh ex-showroom. However, we do not have confirmation of its price.
New Renault Duster Rivals
Following its launch, the new Duster‘s primary market is India, where it will be joined by the Hyundai Creta, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, Toyota Hyder, Maruti Suzuki Grand Virata, Kia Seltos, and Honda Elevate.
