Renault Duster facelift spotted testing in Chennai

Renault Duster facelift spotted testing in Chennai

Renault was being questioned for not bringing in the Duster facelift to India on time, when it went on sale in the international markets. However, now that the Hyundai Creta is disrupting the mid-size SUV space, we think this is the best time Renault could have thought of to introduce the facelift model.
The updated Duster is now a frequent sight on the streets in India testing with heavy camouflage.
Changes expected:
  • New front fascia
  • New interior trim
  • New dashboard
  • New alloy wheels
  • New LED tail lamp
  • New headlamp
  • New rear bumper
  • New roof rails
Powering the Duster facelift will be the same powertrains. A 1.5L dCi diesel with 85 PS, 1.5L dCi diesel with 110 PS & a 1.6L petrol with 102 PS. Reports suggest a new 1.2L TCe petrol motor capable of 123.3 BHP could also be introduced. But it is doubtful if this smaller engine would make it to Indian shores.
The new Duster will continue with 4×4 & 4×2 layout.
Expect the new model to be launched closer to the 2016 Indian Auto Expo.
