The new Renault Duster is one of the most popular compact SUVs in India, thanks to its rugged looks, spacious cabin, and affordable price. The current generation of the Duster has been on sale since 2016, and it received a facelift in 2019. However, the Duster is due for a major overhaul, as the next-gen model is already under development.
The New Renault Duster will be based on the CMF-B platform, which also underpins the Renault Triber and the upcoming Renault Kiger. This platform will allow the new Duster to be lighter, safer, and more efficient than the Old model. The new Duster will also feature a completely redesigned exterior and interior, with more modern styling and features.

The former will be available with a manual transmission only, while the latter will offer both manual and automatic (CVT) options. The diesel engine option will be discontinued, as Renault has decided to exit the diesel segment in India.

The Upcoming Renault Duster is likely to be priced slightly higher than the Old model, which starts from Rs. 7 lakh and goes up to Rs. 14.25 lakh (ex-showroom). However, the new Duster will offer better value for money, as it will be more spacious, feature-rich, and powerful than before.
The upcoming Renault Duster is one of the most awaited SUVs in India, as it will bring a fresh appeal to the ageing model. The new Duster will also help Renault to regain its market share and popularity in the Indian market.
