Next Generation Renault Duster Will Hit India Market in 2019. Renault Duster is one of the best selling cars in India, and it is the one that has helped Renault to compete with other prominent brands in the country. Because of the car’s high popularity, the French automaker has decided to launch the second generation of Renault Duster in India sometime in 2019. The codename for Duster’s next generation is H79, and it will come with 5- and 7-seater variants. It is rumored that the 5-seater variant will come in 2017 while the 7-seater will be launched a year after in 2018.
Renault Duster 2019 Specifications
This car will use one of Renault’s previous platforms. However, it is still unclear which one will be utilized. Rumor has it; it will be based on CMF platform or the modified version of Duster’s B0. It is possible that both platforms will be used, but they will be sold in the different market. CMF platform probably will be used for the European version. Meanwhile, the cars sold in India will be built on Duster’s B0 platform.
Exterior and Interior Design Previews
New 2019 Renault Duster will take some design inspirations from its predecessor. But, of course with some tweaks and visual improvements here and there. On the front, it is confirmed that this all new Duster car will get redesigned headlamps that come with LED daytime running lights. Moreover, the front grille will have unique V-shape and accentuated by chrome which reminds us to Captur’s signature front grille. The bumper will be made beefier to add more energetic vibe to the overall design.
This new compact SUV from Renault will also get new alloy wheels as well as revamped glass area, and new roof rails design. The inside is still a mystery, but we can expect more spacious cabin space because the overall length of the car is increased. With 4.7 meters, this car will be 240 mm longer than the current model.
