Renault Teases New Duster, Launch Soon

  • Jul 02, 2019

Leading French carmaker Renault is all set to launch an updated version of the Duster compact sports utility vehicle (SUV) and the company has now released a teaser image of the new car on its official website. The image confirms a number of changes to be carried out in the new Duster, including the grille, headlamp cluster, and a revised bonnet. Earlier images have revealed that the car will have several changes in the cabin as well. The new Duster is expected to hit the streets later this month before the all-new Triber which is set for its debut by end-July.

The headlamp cluster of the 2019 Duster has a projector lens, new chrome embellishments, and LED daytime running lights (DRLs). The car’s triple-sat chrome grille lends the Duster a more premium look. The new grille has replaced the sportier, blacked out twin-sat unit on the outgoing model. The bonnet of the new Duster sports a major change. The car also gets fog lamps, a revised bumper, rear and front skid plates, and new alloy wheels. While the taillight design has been retained from the existing model, the tailgate gets an additional cladding.

The interior of the new Renault Duster has a new multifunction steering wheel, rectangular AC vents, and a touchscreen infotainment system supporting Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The teaser revealed that the car will get a blue exterior shade.

The new Duster is likely to be available in both 1.5-litre diesel and petrol motors. Renault has hinted that the diesel engine will be upgraded to meet the upcoming BS-VI emission norms.

The petrol engine produces 106PS maximum power and 142Nm peak torque. The diesel motor outputs 85PS maximum power and 200Nm peak torque. An option 1.5-litre diesel powertrain producing 110PS maximum power and 245Nm peak torque is also available.

The 2019 Duster, when launched, will renew its rivalry with the Maruti S-Cross, Nissan Kicks, Hyundai Creta, and the upcoming Kia Seltos.
