2018 Duster Unveiled

  • Sep 18, 2017

The new Duster looks significantly redesigned inside-out


Renault’s compact SUV, Duster, has received a major overhaul. The French carmaker’s subsidiary, Dacia, that also sells the Duster under its own portfolio, showcased its 2018 version at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. We’re expecting the updated Duster to come to India sometime next year, but there’s no official word until now on its India-launch.

Design changes on the outside, at the front, include a new grille and new bumper. The bonnet has also been sculpted differently now and the 2018 Duster appears to be wider than before. Renault says that they have pushed the front windscreen forward by 100mm. We are yet to receive the official brochure so it’s hard to figure out whether they have increased the rake of the screen or have pushed the entire screen forward.

The headlamp layout in the 2018 Duster is quite similar to the current one as far as positioning of the main beam and indicator is concerned. However, the headlamp design is slightly different now and it appears sleeker than before. DRLs have also been incorporated in the headlamp assembly now. Tail lamps have also been given a new design and the Duster looks wider now from the rear as well.

The dashboard has also been given a revamp and it now features three air-con vents in the middle and the infotainment system also appears to be tilted more towards the driver now. The 2018 Dacia Duster in the images gets an all-black interior while the Duster on sale in India currently has a beige-black interior theme.

The 2018 Duster is expected to get more equipment but there’s no official word on what new features would the Indian version pack. The engine-transmission combination is expected to remain as is.

We will bring you more details on the new Duster as and when they will be available in the coming months. Before the new Duster comes to India, Renault will launch the Captur compact SUV which will lock horns with the Hyundai Creta. It will be based on the same platform as the Duster, and is expected to borrow the powertrain as well. Expect the Renault Captur to be a more premium product than the Duster.
