The Renault Duster which was launched recently had been going under comparison with cars in the same price range, specifically with the successful new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga MPV. And one thing missing in the SUV was the lack of a 7-seater option.
Renault has worked on it and have added twin jump seats to the third row of the SUV. The jump seats are being offered by the carmaker as an optional dealer accessory through its showrooms.
The jump seats which can be installed to the third row of the SUV can be folded when not used. This adds up to the practicality as you can use the huge boot to its full capacity while travelling with five or less people.
This additional seats are very useful for short trips when the number of passengers are above 5 and you need very less luggage space. However, these third row jump seats won't be comfortable for long journeys. The Duster's nearest rival in terms of price - Ertiga is a full time seven seater MPV.
India is a highly price conscious market where buyers go for the most when it comes to value for money. The Duster does justice with its highly competitive price tag and now, it will sure do even better with the addition of extra seats.
