Words: Shubham Choukse
Renault has unveiled the next generation Duster at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. It will make it to India sometime next year, meanwhile Renault is trying to keep the Duster’s appeal fresh with the launch of the Duster Sandstorm Edition.
Exterior updates on the Sandstorm Edition include gloss black front grille, new matte black front armour with Duster branding & fog lamps, ‘Sandstorm’ decals on the hood, doors, tailgate and ORVMs, and new 16-inch Zodiac alloy wheels. While interior updates include new seat covers and floor mats with ‘Sandstorm’ branding, a 7-inch touch screen infotainment system and dual air bags. Mechanically the car remains the same.
At the launch of the new Duster Sandstorm, Sumit Sawhney, Country CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations said, “Renault Duster, which has over the years acquired the stature of a cult product, has the widest offerings in the SUV segment. As part of our endeavour to keep our products and services innovative and contemporary, the exciting enhancements on the Duster Sandstorm make it look even more rugged and tough – the very DNA of a true SUV. The new Duster Sandstorm Edition is offered at compelling price points and will provide the owners a bold, intelligent and efficient avatar of the Duster which will further continue to carry the legacy of the Duster forward in India.”
The Duster sandstorm Edition is available in three colour options – Outback bronze, Moonlight silver and Slate grey, and it can be booked now either through the Duster App or at any of the Renault Dealerships across the country.
