Previously Renault has revealed a few images of the new Duster, but it is the first time we are able to get a glimpse of the completely overhauled interior design.
The latest iteration of the Duster has a more upmarket feel with redesigned exterior and interior. The exterior of the new Duster is more muscular at both front and rear and looks wider compared to the previous model.
The new compact SUV also features higher belt line, new roof rails and prominent silver front and rear skid plates. The new Duster gets a new LED front light signature which gives it a heavily updated look.
The interior of the new Duster is entirely new with a redesigned dashboard, and the infotainment system has been moved to the upper part. The seats are redesigned with new materials for added comfort. Smart storage spaces have been added to increase the overall storage capacity.
The Duster facelift also features new equipment such as multi-view camera, blind spot warning, curtain airbags, automatic air conditioning, hands-free card, keyless entry and automatic headlights.
Renault claims that the new Duster will deliver improved four-wheel-drive experience. The driver assistance features include Hill Descent Control, Hill Start Assist and 4x4 monitor which comprises of a compass and notifies the driver of the vehicle's lean angle.
The global-spec Renault Duster retains the 1.5-litre diesel and 1.2-litre petrol engines of the outgoing model. It is also based on the same platform as the currently sold model. The overall dimensions are also unchanged. But Renault states that the every body panel is new on the Duster facelift.
Renault has fully unveiled the new Duster with exterior and interior changes. France will be the first market to get the new compact SUV in 2018 and later it will be sold in the UK. Expect the new Duster to hit the Indian shores by late-2018.
