Like we said, Renault India is clearly feeling the heat from the Hyundai Creta, which has witnessed a tremendous response since its launch with some variants commanding a waiting period of up to 6 months! Creta’s good looks, premium appeal and feature rich character have clicked well with the Indian customers. The Duster has now become even more appealing than before. The facelift would surely help push things forward. What remains to be seen is as to how much will the re-designing and innovation in the facelifted model be successful when it comes on road. As is the case now, the Renault Duster facelift will compete against the Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV500 W4, Nissan Terrano, Hyundai Creta and the Maruti S-Cross. The price for this model could rise by Rs 20,000 to Rs 30,000 per variant as compared to the current Duster.

  1. When is Renault duster diesel automatic expected to be launhced in 2015, earlier reports indicated, Jan-2015. All other SUVs are being launched in automatic version, Hyundai ix25, Bolero, Scorpio, i20 Cross, SX4 cross, etc. Renualt duster should be launched in Diesel automatic version soon or competition will takeyaway all the mileage. Also there is huge demand for automatic vehicles in India now..

  2. If everything goes right in accordance with the plan and commitment made by the authority, KWID, I think, is going to be the game changer in the entry level car segment.

  3. Excellent this duster looks amazing. If it is going to have AT then it will definitely increase the sales for duster exponentially. People prefer AT cars nowadays and have shown a liking to it and duster has compelling SUV features, couple that with AT and you clearly have a winner.

  4. Duster is the best SUV in the market and with a facelift renault is ensuring that it remain that way. They are also planning to bring an AT model which will make it the best int he league with 4X4 i drive, independent suspension, 6 gear AT and face lift. Wow cant wait.

  5. When is Renault Duster Diesel Automatic being Planned for launch… Please LAUNCH soon… We are waiting.. And are excited about this NEWS…Renault should launch Duster Diesel Automatic Immediately in October itself, ahead of Festive season, to cash on… There is immense interest in Automatic and Hyundai Creta has reported over 30% bookings of Automatic version and they have made changes in their production plans accordingly, infact they were much surprised by the automatic requirement, having expected only 10% of the total bookings.. It means of the 40000 bookings Hyundai Creta has received 10000 bookings are for Automatic itself, which is a significant number and completely new opportunity ….The waiting period for Creta Automatic has gone upto 8 months as per the dealer I spoke to in Mumbai……!!!!!!
    Renault needs to Launch Duster Diesel with EDC Automatic as soon as possible, as it is losing huge market to other SUVs. They have to win this race against time to get the Duster Facelift to market……

  6. Yes… yes …yes I am eagerly waiting for automated version of the Renault duster.

  7. As a prospective buyer of the Renault Duster, i have been comparing the features with some of its immediate competitor. The Renault Duster gives its knuckle duster treatment to every other except the Mahindra XUV W4 but i just can’t help wish Duster would make some refinement in the car interiors. The LCD screen is a lil lower to my liking, maybe if it was in eye line then, it would have been better. The interior is a let down. If the facelift would be made to the 110 RXL Explore, it would make my decision easier.

  8. what an amazing facelift and with so many good upgrades! I think i will buy this one instead of the Creta, the waiting period and the price are a big turn off.

  9. Automatic cars are the need of the hour in present traffic conditions even in smaller cities. Duster must come out with auto-transmission options both in petrol and diesel versions. I would have bought one if it was available

  10. Why Renault doesn’t provide Duster with a sunroof, at least in one of their variant . ?? What is the problem in manufacturing a Sunroof Variant.

  11. Why there is no face lift in the dashboard ,company can provide GPS Navigation and blue tooth support for its all variants, which will give a better feel and look…

  12. […] The Duster‘s badge engineered cousin might have a slight edge in terms of fuel efficiency, but it still remains the more popular of the two. The SUV gets very muscular styling, great dimensions for the urban environment, hard to match ride quality and dynamics and the Renault Duster’s appeal is further enhanced by the availability of an AWD system. Renault has addressed some of the initial issues about underwhelming levels of quality and a lack of features with the recent facelift and also added an optional 6-speed automatic transmission. Like the Terrano, the Duster is also available with three sets of specifications- 102 bhp 1.6-litre petrol, 84 bhp 1.5-litre diesel and 108 bhp 1.5-litre diesel. Additionally, the 108 bhp 1.5-litre diesel can be bought with an AWD system. (Read more . . .) […]
