One of the globally acclaimed car makers from France, Renault is gearing up to bring in their majestic Sports Utility Vehicle christened as Renault Duster in the lucrative Indian car market by October this year. The Renault Duster price is expected to be under Rs. 10 lakh and the company has high hopes that this SUV will give all its rivals a run for their money once it is launched. The launch was supposed to happen in the middle of this year, but due to some reason that has not been declared, it has been deferred till October. Apparently there is word going around the automobile market that the launch was delayed as the company is keen to increase their dealerships across the country before launching this premium SUV. Apart from this the company also wants to position the launch of Renault Duster closer to the festival of Diwali, as a lot of people purchase vehicles during this time.
The exteriors of this SUV are marvelous with a wide front grille that has a good amount of chrome, stylish roof rails, and a brilliant head lamp cluster as can be seen in the Renault Duster pictures. This SUV has room for 5-passengers, who can sit very comfortably with adequate leg room. As stated in a Renault Duster review, the company is bringing in this SUV with both petrol and diesel options. The petrol mill will be a 1.6 liter engine that can generate 85 Bhp with 200 Nm of torque. While the diesel motor will be a K9K turbo 1.5 liter diesel car engine that can produce a maximum power of 105 Bhp and a thumping torque of 240 Nm. This SUV might be launched with both manual as well as an automatic transmission and is expected to be equipped with 4 cylinders. In the meanwhile, several other upcoming vehicles such as – Maruti Ertiga, Volkswagen Jetta, Chevrolet Captiva and Tata Safari Storme are set to be launched in the coming weeks.
