Renault Working on All-New Duster for the Indian Market ! 😍

Renault has begun work on a new generation of Duster for India, according to Autocar India. Finally, the Duster will get the makeover it so richly deserves. Renault was the first company in India to introduce monocoque mid-size SUVs. They did not, however, upgrade the Duster, and it began to show its age when compared to other mid-size SUVs. The Duster was discontinued earlier this year by the manufacturer.

The CMF-B platform will be used to build the new Duster. It will be a stripped-down version of the platform. CMF-B LS is the name of the product (lower spec). This is most likely done to save money on production. The platform will be further tweaked to meet India’s needs. The current Duster in India was built on the same B-Zero platform as the Captur, Logan, and Lodgy.

The redesigned Duster is slated to debut in 2023-2024, competing against the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross, and MG Astor. It will also compete with the Tata Harrier, MG Hector, and Mahindra XUV700.

Renault’s decision to abandon the Duster’s diesel engine was widely panned. A hybrid petrol engine is slated to power the new Duster. As a result, it should be able to achieve fuel efficiency comparable to a diesel engine. We still don’t know if the new Duster will have a four-wheel drive system or not. Renault used to sell an all-wheel-drive Duster, which has a cult following to this day. The Duster AWD was a capable mid-size SUV that was also the most cheap with all-wheel drive.

New Duster could be based on Bigster

Some of the qualities present on the current Duster will be carried over to the new Duster. For example, a butch design, large wheel arches, and a grille that blends with the headlamps. Last year, Dacia, Renault’s sibling brand, unveiled the Bigster Concept. In truth, Dacia sells Dusters all over the world; Renault just rebadged the SUV and imported it to India.

The CMF-B platform was also used by the Bigster. The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance developed this new platform, which will be used by all three automakers for their future automobiles. The Bigster appears to be the Duster’s spiritual successor. As a result, the new Duster can borrow design cues from the Bigster.

Speaking of the Bigster Concept, it looks butch and rugged. It also has headlamps integrated with the grille. There are Y-shaped LED Daytime Running Lamps and a huge skid plate. There is a muscular bonnet with huge trapezoidal wheel arches. The fenders have a pronounced design and there are new alloy wheels too. At the rear, there is a Y-shaped LED tail lamp, a flat tailgate with a rear skid plate.

Bigster measures 4.6-metres in length which means that it is longer than the current Duster. So, we are expecting that the Duster will have more cabin space and will be positioned higher than the current Duster.
