News & Features News Renault Duster coming to a showroom near you this July
having some idea of buying duster.is it a right option?
it is best in this range
superb SUV in this range .
I saw this car - very bad car - leg room for 2nd row is terrible - lesser than wagon r, behind around 3 ft of length is just boot space, god know who will use such big boot space. it is good from outside and very bad from inside
Let's see how its going to be priced.
It simply feels that the Duster will not compete with the competition in either the engine size nor the category. So, if they want to see success the only thing that can set them apart is the price. If it is proportionately reduced to accomodate the weaker engine it may work marvels for them or it may simply tank in terms of demand.
A compact SUV should be a winner.
Price is the main factor to determine the success of Duster. Not a very good time to launch a new car/SUV in this market condition. Right now sales numbers for cars have come down significantly compared to few months back. All the best for Renault for Duster in India! I like this compact SUV. I expect to price below 10 lacs on road for top end Diesel 4x2 (not 4x4).
If Renault keeps the price at par with Tata or Mahindra products it will leave the Indian badges in its dust. The european version sold under Dacia is like a mountain goat. Not a luxury car but it does what it says on the tin. Will suite Indian conditions too well. Will handle surfaces Mahindra or Tata SUVs cant.
Renault can make or break its fortune on Indian soil with this one. Duster is heavily localized so pricing can be a bit on the lower side. Only key to bringing volumes in Indian market is FE and pricing. Just like Maruti has done over the decades. It compromised on the profit margin in its initial days and later huge volumes made up for that. So price the lowest version under 7 lacs and top end diesel under 10 lacs and you have a winner. Why not a sun roof option? Even the i10 has it now.
