Renault Duster

It's already been listed on the Renault India website and we're anticipating an August launch. The Duster, essentially a rebadged Dacia is a compact 5 door SUV based on the Renault Logan platform (now the Mahindra Verito).

The Duster is a pretty muscular looking SUV and should appeal to buyers in India. It's not beautiful neither does it feature any exquisite styling details, but it's got presence because of the sheer size it possesses. At 4.31 metres (169.7 in) in length, 1.82 metres (71.7 in) in width and with a ground clearance of 210 mm (8.3 in), it certainly will stand out in a crowd. The front is dominated by the large grill and headlamps while flared up wheel arches blend nicely with the tail lamps to form the rear. All of this gives the Duster a very "Don't mess with me" kinda look which Indian SUV buyers will appreciate.

Only the two-wheel-drive version will be launched here in India. There will be three engine choices, a 1.6-litre petrol making 106 bhp and a 1.5-litre diesel in 90bhp and 107bhp guises.

Expect the interiors to be similar to the Logan's, spruced up slightly with the use of better fabrics and brighter colours. Prices are expected to be in the range of Rs 7 lakh to Rs 10 lakh.
