Renault Duster has indeed been the most awaited car of the year in terms of its promising features and compactness. Renault Duster will be a strict competition to Toyota’s Rush and EcoSport, two other SUVs planning a launch in the Indian car market soon. It will be a staggering growth for SUV lovers and it is evident from the prebookings of Renault’s Duster.
Pulse which has been re-packaged as a Micra in the car segment, the car did not promise much to the prospective buyers. Fluence Sedan, another luring competitor in the segment will be overpowered by Duster as market economists predict. What influenced renault’s decision to launch an SUV is worth considering but as of now the market seems pretty pepped up with Duster. It is a mini SUV but the features have not ben compromised. It can be equaled to a full-bodied SUV at any point of time! The response is terrific as the Duster bookings have escalated smoothly to 6000 in just less than a week of its prelaunch. The Renault manufacturers are sure going to have a tough time dealing with such an overwhelming response.
Renault is a European car maker that has delivered the car market with some of the niche vehicles since its inception. They hope to make it really big with Duster in the Indian car market. Duster seems perfect for Indian roads and driving conditions. Countries like Brazil have already tasted Duster’s success and it is now set to burn Indian roads with car envy. Duster is still selling like hot cakes in Brazil and we sure will not be totally surprised to see this SUV doing extremely well in India.
Duster has an petrol engine of 104PS and the ex-showroom price is estimated to be around 7.19 lakh. The on-road price would be Rs 8.19 lakh. It will be blessed with diesel and petrol engine both.
