The 2018 Renault Duster Sees made its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show and the model is a major leap over the outgoing version. The compact SUV has improved in its appearance with a more brawny profile, upmarket styling and premium interiors.
Contrary to popular reports online, Renault-Dacia said that the new generation Duster won’t be getting a seven seater version. Dacia – Commercial Director, Francois Mariotte was quoted by Auto Express saying, “I know there is a lot of noise going around about a seven-seat Duster. But it’s not on the plan.
You can forget it.” The second generation Renault Duster has seen major improvements over the current model. The compact SUV retains its existing platform, while Renault says the dimensions are identical as well. However, the French automaker has introduced a complete new styling including an all-new grille, signature LED DRLs, new front and rear bumper with scratch resistant skid plates, and new squared LED taillights.
Inside, the cabin is all-new and gets a complete makeover with a refreshed design, materials and features. The centre console is now tilted towards the driver and boasts of a touchscreen infotainment system and display for auto climate control.
Engine options will include the 1.5-litre diesel and 1.2-litre petrol for the European markets. When the new Renault Duster arrives in India sometime next year or in early 2019, expect the existing 1.5-litre diesel and 1.6-litre petrol to continue
