Renault India has seen a sharp drop in sales in India. The Duster, one of the popular models from the brand is now available with massive discounts for 2018 stock. The Duster range now starts at Rs. 7.99 lakh, which is just Rs. 15,000 more than the base Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, which is from a lower segment.
It should be noted that the base Renault Duster RXE is powered by a petrol engine while the base Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is powered by a diesel engine. Nonetheless, Renault is now offering heavy discount on the model to gain the market’s attention. The price of all the variants have been dropped and here is a detailed price list.
The Renault Duster is one of the most successful cars in the global market. Initially, after the launch in the Indian market, the Duster gained huge popularity but the stiff competition caused the sales of the Duster to fade away.
