The 2018 Renault Duster has been revealed. We’ve already seen Dacia’s version of the SUV at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show and there’s really not much to add. Like their previous generation, design of both the models will remain similar but country-specific feature and equipment changes will be present.

2018 Renault Duster vs old model- Design

Renault Duster 2018 old vs new

When compared to the old model, the 2018 Renault Duster feels more up-market. Its changes, though subtle, brings new personality to the popular but ageing SUV.

The new Duster isn’t as rugged as before and its front fascia looks more round-ish. New grille and headlights, updated bumper and redesigned hood make up major chunk of changes. Sides look similar to the outgoing model but new alloy wheels are provided.

The design elements at its rear are more profound. New square taillights, smaller windscreen and different bumper can be seen.

Though interior is mostly similar to the outgoing model, the new 3-spoke steering wheel and rectangular air-con vents improve its premium quotient. The MediaNav touchscreen AVN system has been retained.

Both these models have different front grille and arguably, Renault’s version looks better. On the inside, the Dacia Duster has a better looking 4-spoke steering wheel and retains circular air-con vents.

The Duster is a global model and has sold more than 1 million units till date. Its specifications will be slightly different based on the target country.

In India, the Duster is likely to retain its current petrol and diesel engines. These are the same one being used on the all-new Captur as well.
