2015 Renault Duster India Spec model has been spotted. Could be launched in early 2015
Thanks to the images you see here, it has come to light that the boffins at Renault India are almost ready with the first batch of the updated Duster. The 2015 Renault Duster India-spec model will boast of several minor changes and features addition, all of which should come together to bestow the popular SUV with a touch of more premium-ness. The images you see here are of the diesel 85 PS variant, but in all likelihood, even the 110 PS has gone under the scalpel and should be out with the less powerful variants. Ir rumours are to be believed, the 2015 Duster, apart from carrying a set of new features, would also boast of a better NVH (Noise, Vibrations, Harshness) package for the engine bay and improved rubber seals for the doors. It maybe noted that these updates are being carried over from the recently introduced Duster AWD variant.
2015 Renault Duster India Launch
While there is no official word on the launch of the updated model, it is highly likely that updated model will be introduced early next year. Our guess is that the updated model will silently slip into market and won’t be touted as an ‘all-new’ model by the marketing experts at Renault.
New Features and Equipment
Akin to the NVH package, the upcoming Duster variants borrow in plenty from the Duster AWD flagship. The car gets a meatier steering wheel, a new audio control stalk that is mounted on the steering wheel, a white-backlit digital multi-information display in the instrument binnacle and a new hue for the beige insert for the dashboard.
From the looks of it, the 2015 Duster will boast of better fit and finish than the current model. Also, the car maker has said to have made improvement in the paint quality after ‘Made in India’ Dacia Duster was criticized for rest issues in export markets.
