It will be built on the Renault Nissan alliance’s CMF modular platform. The next generation Renault Duster will be available in both the 5 seater and 7 seater layout. Expect the 5 seater model to hit the market in 2017, while the 7 seater will come in 2018.
The new Duster features an all new design language, which is reflected through the rendered images. The front profile looks bolder with new grille, new set of sleeker headlamp clusters. Expect the headlamp clusters to come bearing projector units and LED daytime running lights. The front bumper looks massive and beefy with wide slated air intake, skid plate.
At the side profile the car features thick cladding, aggressive alloy wheels, flared wheel arches, thick character lines. The side turning indicator integrated ORVMs, chrome lined blackened glass area enhances the appeal. The rear profile also boasts a roof spoiler with high mounted stop lamp, squarish taillights with LED units. To enhance the off roader character the rear profile is fitted with skid plate at the bottom.
