Renault Duster MY18 Launched

Renault has launched the Duster MY18 and while there are no design or feature changes made to the latest version of India’s first popular compact SUV, Renault has announced price cuts across the range.

Renault is attributing the price cut, which ranges from just under Rs 30,000 to just over Rs 1 lakh, to increased localisation though it has not specified what exactly those parts are. The price cut makes the Duster more competitive in a segment dominated by the Hyundai Creta and also consisting of competitors like the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross and the Honda BR-V.

The Duster AWD sees the biggest cut of just over Rs 1 lakh, making it an even more attractive package than before.
