Its a 5 seater mini SUV with 450+ ltrs boot space and with 1500CC diesel engine. If the price is less than TATA Safari Merlin/Scorpio it will be hit as other two have 7 seating capacity, bigger engine. Ofcourse DUSTER's weight is just 1200 KG and for 1.5 Diesel engine it is enough for it's weight. The 0-100 KM/H figure is under 12 Sec that means it is very quick.
Duster has all the potential to become first hit Renault here in India.People are now really mature enough to buy a small urban SUV.The only point to watch out of course is how Renault prices it.If priced above Safari and Scorpio this will become another sales dud.Carlos Ghosn are you listening!
Renault India has confirmed the showcasing of the mini SUV Duster at the Delhi Auto Expo on January 6. The Renault version of the Dacia Duster sports a revised center console, new alloy wheels, and a dash of chrome on its front-end.
