Next-generation Renault Duster to be rolled out in 2017

Since the first Duster rolled out of Romania in 2010, the SUV has been very popular all over and has spearheaded Renault’s growth in several emerging markets. Now, reports suggest that the current car will be phased out after completing its seven year cycle to be replaced by a new model in 2017. These renderings show us how the 2017 model  might look like.

 

For the new Duster, Renault will adopt a simple but functional design, just like the current car. The conservative design of the current Duster has been very successful and the report says that the new car will also play it safe in the design department. It will get a new design for the front grille, headlamps, tail lamps, bonnet and the tail gate. The car will be loaded with extra safety features and a new layout for the interiors as well. Powertrain options are expected to be carried over from the current car.

The Renault Duster is currently sold in India with the option of two engines - a 1.6-litre K4M petrol engine and a 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine. While the petrol engine produces 102bhp and 145Nm of torque, the diesel unit is available in two states of tune – one producing 84bph and 200Nm of torque and the more powerful version churning out 108bhp and 248Nm of torque. Power is sent through a five-speed manual gearbox to either the front wheels or all four wheels, depending upon the variant.

The Duster was developed by the French manufacturer’sbudget brand, Dacia, and is sold under the Renault badge in several markets including India. Currently produced in five countries - India, Brazil, Romania, Colombia and Russia, the SUV recently achieved the milestone of selling one million units, worldwide. Dacia was reintroduced in 2004 as a part of Renault’s plans to use it as a low-cost brand and currently boasts of a full range of saloons, hatchbacks, pick-up trucks, SUVs and estates.
