Renault Duster Video Review, Price List, Features And Specifications

4

Renault India has finally launched the much awaited Renault Duster in India after long wait. There is a lot of enthusiasm among Indian car buyers for SUVs and this new segment of compact SUVs in affordable price segment (close to sedan pricing) is going to challenge the dominance of Sedans when it comes to mid-size cars segment in India. Young and aspirational buyers from India are looking forward to this segment for quite sometime. Duster not only creates a new segment, but also it brings a huge opportunity for Renault in India to grow its sales volumes multifold. With its lucrative pricing, great handling and attractive styling, Duster does seem to be a very good value for money option for Indian buyers.

Renault Duster is 30 to 40% lighter in kerb weight when compared to the typical SUVs like Scorpio and Safari and also lower in height. While less weight makes it more agile and much more fuel efficient, lower height and better aerodynamics make it more stable and pliant on roads.
