UNVEILED: 2018 RENAULT DUSTER

Having been showcased at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show wearing a ‘Dacia’ badge (a sub-brand of Renault), Renault has finally added its Diamond logo in the second-generation Duster. It has been revamped seven successful years after its original release. A global success for Renault, the Duster is the company’s best-seller with over 10 lakh customers.

Featuring an even robust and modern styling, the 2018 Duster gets a revised exterior styling with new grille, new headlights, new taillights and bigger 17-inch alloys among many others.  The new Renault Duster is expected to make its debut at the 2018 Indian Auto Expo.Although visually more muscular, the 2018 Duster features the same compact dimensions as the current Duster. It measures 4315 mm long, 1822 mm wide and 1695 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2673 mm and a ground clearance of 205 mm. The new Duster will be available in two engine options: a 1.5-litre Petrol and a 1.5-litre Diesel. An AMT transmission will be available along with a 5MT, 6MT and CVT.

From the sides, the new Duster gets a higher belt line, a steeply raked windscreen to make the cabin look more spacious, new aluminium roof bars, and new 17-inch alloy wheels. On the rear, broad haunches provide the vehicle a modified stance while new rear tail-light clusters and mass-coloured skid plate make the new Duster look more robust. The new Duster comes with extensive changes on the interior with a totally redesigned dashboard, revised seats and clever storage spaces. It also comes with a host of new equipment like Automatic Climate Control, Keyless Entry, Blind Spot Warning and a remote engine start.

Driving aids include a multi-view camera, Hill Descent Control and eco-coaching feature. Safety upgrades include a reinforced vehicle frame, new seat frames, curtain airbags and automatic headlight activation.
