Renault took the wraps off the highly-anticipated new-generation Dacia Duster (Duster in India) at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Retaining the original DNA, the new Duster is claimed to combine robust, muscular styling with all-new body colour – Atacama Orange. The compact SUV has also received comprehensive feature upgrades and new materials inside the cabin.
During the press conference at the bi-annual event, Mr. Francois Mariotte, General Manager, Dacia Sales and Marketing said, “The all-new Duster’s SUV appeal has been heightened by its robust exterior design which has been entirely redesigned, while its new interior design emphasizes comfort and perceived quality.” Check Out – New Duster Exterior & Interior Photo Gallery
Talking about the design, the new Duster features unique grille running towards the headlamps, LED daytime running lights, muscular creases on the bonnet and larger skid plate with satin-chrome finish at the front end. Features such as higher belt lines, 100mm forward windscreen, flared wheel arches and 17-inch wheels, new aluminium roof bars and black wing arch trim accentuate the side profile of the car.

The India-spec Duster will see no update under the skin. It is likely to use the existing 1.5-litre petrol and diesel powertrains generating the same power and torque outputs. The new-generation Duster will have its India debut at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo in February, followed by the launch.
