Renault, a name synonymous with innovation and quality in the automotive industry, is set to redefine the SUV segment in India with the launch of the third generation Duster SUV in 2025. This much-anticipated launch promises to bring a fresh wave of excitement to the Indian automotive market.
A New Chapter Begins
The announcement of the third generation Renault Duster by the company marks a new era in their lineup. This new Duster is not just an upgrade; it’s a complete overhaul, designed to meet the evolving needs and expectations of Indian consumers. In addition to the standard model, Renault has also planned to introduce a 7-seater version of the SUV by 2025-26, expanding the choices for families and group travelers.
Built on a Strong Foundation
Both versions of the new Duster will be based on the Renault-Nissan joint venture’s CMF-B modular platform. This platform is also the foundation for Nissan’s upcoming mid-size and 7-seater SUVs. The CMF-B platform is renowned for its flexibility and efficiency, making it an ideal base for modern SUVs.
Advanced Features and Interior Design
The new Duster models will be equipped with high-level features, including the cutting-edge ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) technology. This incorporation of advanced technology is a testament to Renault’s commitment to safety and comfort. The interior of the new Duster is expected to be nothing short of modern and luxurious, providing an unparalleled driving experience.
Powerful and Efficient Hybrid Powertrain
One of the most exciting features of the new Duster is its robust 1.6L hybrid powertrain. This powertrain is capable of generating a combined power output of 140hp, ensuring a blend of efficiency and performance. Additionally, the possibility of a 1.2L 3-cylinder turbo petrol engine with mild-hybrid technology further enhances the vehicle’s appeal. This engine variant is also expected to support an AWD (All-Wheel Drive) system, offering versatility and reliability in various driving conditions.
