Chennai is a very hot place, ordinarily. But it's an SUV that could turn up the temperature of the auto scene at a time when the auto mart has slowed down considerably. Think of it as an igniter, one that that could help the industry get out of the rut it currently is in. And the one that has just such a task at hand is the Renault Duster.
The smart, yet quirky SUV is heading to a Renault showroom near you, this July and it seems this front-wheel drive only SUV is bound to ruffle more than a few feathers. At 4.3 metres long, it's got the measure of its competition, which for now consists of just the Mahindra Scorpio and the Tata Safari (including the upcoming Safari Storme). Not too small and not too big, the Duster won't be a parking nightmare for sure.
On the outside the Duster grabs your attention. It isn't pretty, but it's go the right elements. Lots of chrome, good presence and chunky alloy wheels, you also get the option of steel pressed wheels on the lower versions.
